A woman has taken to TikTok to share the bizarre story of the first time she met her ex-boyfriend's mother who tried to convince her to allow her boyfriend to cheat on her for his 18th birthday.

In a detailed post, Chantel Thorn tells her followers her former partner took her out to dinner with his mum and they both told her she should let him cheat on her as a birthday treat.

The 23-year-old from Australia explained that her boyfriend had been taken into care when he was younger but was reconnecting with his mum and thought it would be good for the two to meet.

"I was really supportive of this. I said, 'You’re getting close with your mum again, that’s so sweet'," she said in the video.

When they were at dinner, the mother-son duo brought up his upcoming 18th birthday, which would mean he would be legal to drink and go out clubbing with his friends in Australia.

"I was only 15 at the time and couldn’t go along, so I just congratulated him and hoped he would have fun," she told Jam Press.

"They then brought up that because I was under 18 he wouldn’t be able to have the full experience of hooking up with girls at the club.

"I didn’t really know how to respond to that except to say I would be 18 in a few years but they kept talking about how when you go to the club you should be able to pick up girls and bring them home."

She thought he was breaking up with her, but apparently, all he wanted was to have her permission to hook up with girls.

She said: "His mum agreed that this was a very reasonable request. I wasn’t okay with it and tried to hold my ground that that would be cheating in my eyes."

They then tried to negotiate a compromise by suggesting she let him hook up with girls at the club only on his birthday but they then gave up only when they realised she wasn’t going to budge.

It didn't end there, however, with Chantel adding, "When we went home afterwards, he sort of scolded me for having embarrassed him in front of his mother."

In a follow-up video, Chantel adds that this request was even more amusing because "he was already cheating on me, like a lot. And he continued to cheat on me after this."

The couple broke up a few months later after she had already caught him cheating a few times, but forgave him and begged him to stay.

She said: "He asked for a no-contact break from each other but promised we would talk again before my 16th birthday.

"My 16th birthday came and I didn’t receive a message from him, so I sent him a text and he replied to it breaking up with me."

Chantel says that if such a situation were to arise today, she would laugh and walk away before she even got close to having such a conversation.

However, as she says in the follow-up video, which has been viewed more than 77,000 times, she wasn’t in her "girl boss era" then.

She added: "I was in a really horrible place when we started dating and being with him really didn’t help my self-esteem. I had no self-confidence and thought I didn't deserve to be treated any better."

While Chantel says that she’s a lot stronger now and is happy with her partner of six years who treats her "like a princess," her story seems to have resonated with a lot of people.

One user commented: "Girls' trauma is so underrated. Like we really were out here begging for the bare minimum and being told we didn’t deserve it."

Many shared similar experiences.

Someone said: "I told his mom he was cheating and she thought it was ok... Even when her husband had cheated too."

Someone else added: "Dude! My ex’s mom told him to go 'explore other women' before committing. He then cheated saying he didn’t want to do it if we got married."

People also empathised with her when she shared the whole story.

One user said: "Girl you were 15 it’s okay and totally understandable that you weren’t at your biggest girl boss moment you were a child."

Many also speculated why he wanted permission this time.

Someone said: "He wanted the permission because he was in public and there was more chance of getting caught."

Another added: "Because in the clubs he would be visible to ppl you may know and could rat him out whereas the other cheating isn’t as visible." [sic]
