A woman called her ex-boyfriend "crazy" and "controlling" after he sent her a list of 11 rules he wanted her to follow as she went away for college.
@ccarollynn on TikTok shared the video, showing what she says is a screenshot he sent her titled "Rules for Carolyn PAY ATTENTION."
Some of the more extravagant "rules" the dude sent to her included "Approve all outfits you wear past me and my mom," "Do not come in contact with boys by 25 feet or more," "Be in your dorm by 9 every night and facetime me so I know you are alone," and "No frat parties, House parties, Dorm parties, etc."
As she reads down the list, she explains why each one of them is crazy. The video has been viewed nearly 3 million times.
After reading some of the comments, Carolyn posted a follow-up. In it she says.
Some people were saying they were in similar situations and that their situation did escalate, and I am so sorry for that. I was not trying to glamourise anything. I know that I was kind of joking and laughing. I just want to say that behaviour is considered abuse. That’s considered emotionally controlling and abusive, and if you are in an abusive relationship, domestic violence, anything like that – there are tons of help resources and hotlines you can call.
