@alyssalauren tells my boyfriend that I left my wallet at home 🥺😭❤️ #couplethings #relationshipgoals #boyfriend #love ♬ Original sound – Alyssa Lauren
Lauren stitched another TikTok creator, @samandmonica’s, video with her own version of the trend. After telling her boyfriend that she forgot her wallet, he took matters into his own hands.
“Let’s just start putting things back, then,” he said, putting the items back on the shelf.
In the comments, some users find the friend’s reaction amusing, while others believe Lauren is entitled.
“I’m sorry, but that’s realistic. Our boys are awesome but they’re not the social media TikTok romantics,” one user commented.
“He said, ‘Damn, that sounds like a problem of yours,'” said another user.
“Honestly I wouldn’t take that as a red flag because he’s a boyfriend and not a husband,” commented a third user.
The Daily Dot contacted Lauren via TikTok comment and Instagram message.
