One woman shared a text she received from her date, in which she admitted to Googling the medications she found in her bathroom before asking if she had a “mental illness.”
In a recent video shared on TikTok, Chloe, @b****craft444, shared a screenshot of a text message from someone who seemed to have been on a recent date. According to the screenshot, Chloe started the conversation by asking how her night was going. However, in response, the man sent a text message in which he revealed that he researched some of the medications he found in his bathroom and found that they were “antipsychotics.” He then proceeded to state that if she had a “mental illness”, it would be a “huge turn off”.
“Hey I don’t mean to be rude and this is very awkward of me,” the message reads. “The other night was fun, but I googled those tablets you left in the bathroom sink (super invasive of me, I know) and it said they were antipsychotics.”
“You’re not mentally ill, are you? Just a detour and I wouldn’t want to go any further if so,” the text continued.
In the caption, Chloe sarcastically noted how direct the man’s message was, with the TikToker writing, “Not even a good day.”
As of March 21, the video has more than 5.9 million views, with TikTok users in the comments horrified by the text and the man’s behavior, while others assured Chloe that she was lucky to see the signs of alert ahead of time.
“God saved you from that best friend,” one wrote, while another said, “You dodged a massive bullet.”
Others described how inappropriate it was for the man to review Chloe’s medications. “He’s worried about ‘crazy’ people but he was the one who googled your medicine,” one person wrote.
Another said: “The irony of him saying that is a turn off when he literally went to great lengths to find out what medication he’s on.”
However, other viewers argued that the man’s behavior was not a deal breaker, as some felt he was trying to be considerate of Chloe’s mental health.
“I am a girl with a diagnosis [borderline personality disorder]and actually i think apart from the nasty comment i was being polite and honest mental illness is hard to deal with,” one person wrote, while another said: “terribly said but [of course] people have limits [have] He said, ‘I can’t handle that on top of my own problems.
talking to the independentChloe said that when she first saw the man’s text, she was quite “shocked” and that his actions were an invasion of privacy. However, she said that she was not “offended” by the message.
“I didn’t know if I should be insulted or laughed at,” she explained. “I felt like my privacy had been invaded a little bit, the tablets I had found can be used for various things, so I definitely could have said it better or asked for some education on them, instead of being scared by the words ‘antipsychotic’. However, I’m not offended, I can laugh at the situation.”
He also noted how important it is to decrease the “stigma around medications” used for mental health purposes.
“I don’t think anyone should be discriminated against or treated differently because of their mental health, there’s a lot of stigma around medication, but it’s a positive thing,” he added.
Regarding her conversation with her date, Chloe said that she replied to his text, but that he was “very rude” to her.
