A girlfriend has listed ten “controversial” rules she and her boyfriend of six years have put in place to ensure a happy and lasting relationship.
Gia Aldisert, from Los Angeles, shared her list and sparked a debate between those who thought the rules were “reasonable” and those who found them “too strict”.
The rules include not following sexy models on Instagram, knowing other people’s phone passwords, and not having best friends of the opposite sex.
The 21-year-old real estate agent repeatedly said in a lengthy TikTok video that she and her boyfriend trust each other and have “nothing to hide”.
First, they both need to have their phone location enabled at all times for “convenience” and “security” reasons.
Gia Aldisert, 21, (pictured) and her boyfriend, 22, of six years have a set list of rules they follow in their relationship Some called the rules “reasonable,” while others called them “controlling.”
“We both feel a lot more comfortable knowing where everyone is in case something happens to us,” Gia began.
She added that it was “convenient” to know where her boyfriend is without asking him, especially if they meet somewhere after work.
“None of us have anything to hide. It would be a little suspicious if we didn’t want everyone to see where each other is because it’s like, where are we? she says.
Then her boyfriend is never allowed to go to strip clubs.
“I just don’t understand the point of a guy with a girlfriend who goes to strip clubs. It’s a bunch of naked girls dancing to him and hotter things are happening as well,” she said.
“Not to mention, why are you paying his bills?” It is you who should pay my bills, on the contrary.
Some of the ten rules included not following sexy models on Instagram, knowing their respective phone passwords, enabling location settings at all times, and not having best friends of the opposite sex.
For the third rule, they are allowed to go on “girls’ trips” or “boys’ trips” with friends, as it is important to maintain their friendships and their own independence.
“We totally trust each other and started dating at a very young age, so we both think it’s important to have our own experiences,” Gia said.
“If I want to go on a girls’ trip, I go. And if he wants to go to a car show, he can go.
There are strict social media rules and no one is allowed to like ‘thirst trap’ posts on Instagram.
“Liking someone’s picture is completely public, so now everyone can see that one of us is disrespecting the other if they like thirst traps,” Gia said.
“It makes the person (pictured) feel like they’ve caught their eye, which is a big no no.”
Additionally, they are also not allowed to follow Instagram models of the opposite sex, as it is deemed “inappropriate”.
“Why do you follow a random person who attracts you? » asked Gia.
What are the ten rules?
1. Both still have their phone location enabled
2. No strip clubs
3. “Girls trips” and “boys trips” are allowed
4. Not liking “thirst trap” photos on Instagram
5. Don’t follow Instagram models of the opposite sex
6. Both can have friends of the opposite sex – but they can’t be best friends.
7. Both can go clubbing
8. Both know their phone passwords
9. Porn is not allowed to be viewed
10. They won’t get married until they’re both financially free.
Gia is happy that her boyfriend is friends with other women, but they can’t be best friends because it makes her feel uncomfortable.
“We’re best friends with each other, so we have to be each other’s priorities,” she said.
“We also have certain limitations, like not having sleepovers with the opposite sex and if someone of the opposite sex is flirting or whatever, then that’s a big no.”
The couple can also go to nightclubs with friends and find out each other’s phone passwords.
However, neither of them are allowed to watch porn.
“This one might be controversial, but I’m not cool with porn. Honestly, I think it’s really toxic to your mind, it sets you unrealistic standards, and it’s super addictive,” she said.
“My boyfriend and I practically live together, so it seems very pointless.”
As a final rule, the couple promised each other not to get married until they were financially stable.
“I’m still at university, I need to be financially free before we get married. Not only are we very young, but weddings are very expensive,” she said.
“My boyfriend and I are both extras and we’re going to want to have the biggest, craziest wedding you’ve ever seen.”
The detailed video sparked heated debate and has since been viewed more than 8.4 million times.
“Daughter, these are ground rules for a healthy relationship,” one woman wrote, another said, “This is a mature, healthy relationship.”
“Sounds like very sensible rules!” » added a third.
However, others strongly disagreed.
“We trust each other completely ‘but here’s 87 rules too,’ one said.
Another said: ‘It feels more like control and avoidance methods, rather than managing and communicating everyone’s insecurities and working on your own stuff.’
“Yeah, it’s very weird to have rules in relationships if you trust each other,” someone else said.
