And he ended up cheating on her anyway…

In relationships there are often red flags that scream ‘get out’, but this list of ‘rules’ a man sent his girlfriend is more like a giant red billboard.

A young woman from Wakefield, West Yorkshire,  in the UK exposed how her “toxic” ex-boyfriend gave her a long list of things not to do on a night out — but then cheated on her anyway.

Zoe Scholefield, uploaded the 12-rule text message she received from the unidentified man to her Twitter page.

In it, he warns her not to “dance like a slag” and tells her to let him know “everything that happens” and be ready to “tell stories”.

The screenshot of the lengthy rules list has since gone viral, attracting more than 34,000 likes, hundreds of comments and thousands of retweets.

“Funny how my ex sent me stuff like this then has the audacity to cheat on me,” Zoe captioned the post along with two love-heart emojis.

Some of the insane rules include:

  • No boys and if anyone comes up to you and talks to you, you tell them you have a boyfriend”.
  • “You let me know everything that happens and be ready to explain stories”.
  • He even demanded that even if he was asleep she should text him anything that happened so he could read it in the morning.
  • “Always send me photos of front and back of what you are wearing so I can approve and say whether or not I think you should wear it”.
  • “If you can, (I) want a video of room before you sleep to prove no one else is there and you are off to sleep”.

She uploaded the post on Friday and it has since gone viral attracting more than 34,000 likes, thousands of retweets and comments. Picture: TwitterSource:Twitter

Zoe’s post has clocked up 3100 retweets and comments from shocked Twitter users.

“The ‘call or FaceTime me but let me know in advance’ bit was a clear giveaway here. This is all vile!” one man commented.

“It’s paranoia. He thinks you’re going to do what he did to you, so he tries to control you. Used to have a mate that did that to his ex,” another man added.

“Wow your ex sounds like the most toxic, dangerous, sociopath alive,” said a third.

“Don’t know who needs to hear this but if your partner lists even one of those things then you should show them the door. Control isn’t affection or love,” another man explained.

“The fact he sent anything other than ‘enjoy it’ is a red flag.” “I think the whole f***ing text is massive red one tbh!” Said another.

Zoe posted the screenshot on Friday but is yet to respond to comments — but she did retweet a few including “once a cheat always a cheat”.
