Rules for dating an ex boyfriend
Dating can be tough — and it’s even tougher if you’re dating someone who’s on the controlling side.
These relationships usually end up fizzling pretty quickly, and for good reason.
You have to hear about this story of a now-ex boyfriend who gave his girlfriend a strict list of rules to follow during what was intended to be an innocent night out. Twitter user Zoe Scholefield shared the specific tweet on her account.
And when you hear what the rules are, you’ll wonder how this relationship lasted, or even thrived, in the first place.

This just makes him look more like a father chaperoning his kids than a boyfriend accepting that his girlfriend has a life outside of him. The fact that Scholefield’s ex so casually mentioned this rule means that he’s more focused on the possibility of her cheating than the possibility of her having a fun time on this adventure.
He wants her to call or Face Time him but wants some notice in advance.
However, sometimes “rules” set up for a significant other aren’t due to mistrust.
Instead, it’s to mask infidelity — and a big red flag.
Each person you date is different, and even if you have a “type,” it doesn’t mean that type is always out to get you.
Entering a new relationship with the baggage of your old relationship is a surefire way to feel heartbroken once again.
