The man described her as a classy woman and went ahead to mention the other qualities which he would love her to imbibe.

Amongst the rules was the warning that she should never suggest that they wear matching outfits to any event. He also warned that she must not be friends with any girl that he doesn't feel comfortable with.

In addition, he made it clear that they would never go clubbing, but he would spoil her on other kinds of dates.

He reiterated all his rules and warned that failure to comply would lead to ghosting for a long time until she learned her lesson.

"I love you so much. I love me a classy woman. Luckily you are one. I will do anything to be in a relationship with you but I have rules. Two people can't be a captain on a ship so you must listen to me," he said.
