Escaping My “Boyfriend” ft. Sultan Sketches
Alex: Before starting this video, we got some fresh Alex’s Corner merch available in my Crowdmade merch store. Alex: Mech store. Alex: Metch… Alex: All the money made directly supports me and my channel. Alex: With that, thank you so much, and enjoy the finale of my rebound boyfriend series. Alex: Okay, I love you. Bye. Alex: Our first few conversations were pretty harmless, and by then I developed this feeling that I could trust him. Past Alex: Didn’t need to do that, really. Past Alex: I- I could’ve done it mysel- Past Alex: What? No! I’m- I’m not dating him! Past Alex: Who keeps telling everyone these lies? Rose: Well… Rose: Stephen… Past Alex: What about Stephen? Rose: Stephen is telling everyone that… Rose: you’re his girlfriend. Stephen: Honestly guys, she’s so totally into me. Stephen: I mean, it hasn’t been a week since we started talking. Stephen: That says something, right? Rose: Says a lot about you, that’s for sure. Stephen: Ah, Rose… Stephen: Whatever do you mean? Rose: Stop playing dumb with me! Rose: And while you’re at it, stop taking advantage of Alex! Stephen: Taking advantage? Stephen: Bold of you to assume that, Rose. Stephen: I’ve never done anything of the sort. Stephen: Except showing that I care about her. Rose: Oh my God, just admit it, Stephen! You’re taking advantage of her feelings! Friend #1: Whoa, whoa, whoa there Rose. Chill out! Friend #1: Why does it matter so much to you if they like each other? Friend #2: Ay, dude, mind your own business. Friend #2: Stephen always has the most noblest intention in mind. Rose: Excuse me? “Noble intention?” Rose: Are you guys hearing yourselves right now? Friend #1: Stephen is helping Alex get over her ex. Friend #1: That’s pretty noble, if you ask me. Friend #2: As a bro, I fully support Stephen. Friend #1: Same, bro. Friend #2: Bro. Friend #1: Bro. Both: Bro! Rose: Do men deserve rights? Rose: Like, honestly, I was this close to kicking those two in their bro balls for defending Stephen like- Oh my God! Past Alex: Thank you, Rose. I’m so sorry you had to deal with that mess. Past Alex: My mess. Rose: No, no, no. Don’t be sorry. I’m just so frustrated that they believe Stephen so easily, and… Rose: I couldn’t do enough to stop it. Past Alex: No, no, no, Rose, you’ve done more than enough. Past Alex: This is my mess in the first place. I’m the one who should stop it. Rose: You’re gonna stop it? Past Alex: Yes? Rose: Okay, I’ll tell Stephen to come over to the phone. Rose: Stephen! Past Alex: Wait, what!? Rose: Alex wants to talk to you on the phone! Rose: Now! Rose: Right now! Past Alex: Rose! I’m not doing that now! Rose: What? I thought you said you wanted to stop it. Past Alex: You, but… but… ugh. Past Alex: What I’m trying to say is, “Now isn’t the right time.” Rose: No, Alex, now! Now is the right time! Rose: I can tell you’re scared, and rightfully so, Rose: but I can’t stand to see you being taken advantage of any longer. Rose: You don’t have to be scared now. I’m here for you! Just… Rose: please trust me on this, Alex. Past Alex: *sighs* Past Alex: Okay, I trust you. Past Alex: I trust you, Rose. Rose: You got this, Alex. You’re strong. If something happens, just say the word, and I’ll kick Stephen in the- Rose: Oh, Stephen! Oh, here’s Alex. Stephen: Hello? Past Alex: Hey. Stephen: *sighs* Stephen: What’s up, baby? Stephen: Missed me? Past Alex: Baby? Stephen: What? You don’t like that? Stephen: How ’bout… babe? Stephen: Or princess? Past Alex: Stephen, we have to stop whatever the hell this is. Stephen: *laughs* What are you talking about? Past Alex: I’m sorry, I just can’t do this right now. Stephen: Sorry Alex, I have no idea what you’re talking about. Past Alex: You know very well what I’m talking about! Past Alex: I’m talking about this- Past Alex: this relationship! Past Alex: I don’t feel like this is right anymore. Past Alex: I feel really pressured and trapped. Past Alex: I don’t know why you make us look like we’re together when we’re not. Stephen: Wow. Stephen: Just- wow. Stephen: I know I’ve said this before, but Stephen: geez, Alex, for once can you just keep quiet when someone asks you about us? Stephen: It’s no wonder you feel this way! You let people easily get into that head of yours. Past Alex: Are you serious? Past Alex: Rose told me that you’re telling everyone that we’re dating. Past Alex: You can’t expect me to keep quiet about things that aren’t true! Stephen: You said it was fine! Stephen: “Fine, let’s go with the flow.” Stephen: And now you want us to stop, just like that!? Stephen: Hey guys, so listen, Stephen: Alex doesn’t like the teasing about me and her, so it would be sweet if you could just forget everything that I said. Friend #1: Why? Friend #1: Is it because she wants to break up with you? LMAO! Friend #1: *laughs* Friend #1: Huh? Friend #1: Oh, you weren’t joking. Alex: So… that happened. Alex: I… didn’t expect of him to react like that. Alex: At all. Alex: I thought… he cared about me. Alex: I really did. Alex: But… he never did. Alex: For the people who have asked me the question, “Why didn’t you say no?” Alex: I did. Multiple times. Alex: But, as you can see from what had just went down, he would make me feel like nothing was wrong, Alex: and doubt my own sanity. That it was all in my head. Alex: That I shouldn’t listen to people. Alex: That I should only listen to him. Alex: Only him. Alex: There’s also literally nothing wrong with me being friends with this dude. Alex: Literally nothing. Like I said, I’m friends with a lot of older people in the club. Alex: What’s wrong about this is hiding your true malicious intent behind a friendly mask and using that mask to take advantage of people. Alex: But… I know better now. Alex: I finally woke up. Past Alex: But, I really need to go now. Past Alex: Ugh, oh my God! Are you- are you serious? Past Alex: You think I would like you after all of that!? Alex: And that was it! This was our last conversation! Alex: Before he unfriended me! Alex: Dude, I should’ve been the one who unfriended you! What the frick? Alex: But okay, go off, I guess. Alex: Not long after I found out that my friend, Jasmine, who goes to the same youth club as me, went through the exact situation as I did. Alex: With the same guy. Alex: She was also coerced into an unwanted relationship with Stephen back in Christmas of 2014. Alex: I couldn’t bring myself to show these messages in part two because part two was already weird enough with all the Alex: doors and the keys and the smashing the glass wall, you get the flow. Alex: But, this just goes to show that Stephen absolutely, definitely, 100 percent, knew what he was doing to me and Jasmine. Alex: Which was… grooming. Alex: illymation thoroughly explains a lot of this topic in detail in her abusive ex-boyfriend series. Alex: I suggest that everyone should go watch her series since it’s very eye-opening and informative. Alex: It could save a lot of you from the trouble if ever you come across these types of people. Alex: It’s honestly insane how easily and frequently we can get lured into these types of situations. Alex: Since, as children, we didn’t know any better. Alex: No one really talks about it. No ever warns you about these things. Alex: I partially blame the culture and media for romanticizing non-consensual behaviors; a hot topic I might look into for another day. Alex: If you suspect anyone, a friend or a relative, just anyone who is being groomed, step in. Alex: If I hadn’t told Rose, or if Rose hadn’t intervened that night, who knows what could’ve happened if Stephen managed to successfully gaslight me. Alex: Rose’s words of encouragement and her just validating my feelings, letting me know that I wasn’t alone, Alex: letting me know that I wasn’t going crazy or overreacting, Alex: I just, I just felt understood. Alex: And, you know, it really helped build up my courage and confidence to end it. Alex: I just want to thank you again to my main girl Rose, for keeping it a hundred with me that night. Alex: You’re the hero in this story. Alex: Anyway, I have Sultan Sketches here with me right now! Alex: Say hi, Sultan! Sultan: Hi. Alex: Hey, so, I have a question from the viewers, Alex: a lot of people have asked in the comments: Alex: “How did you survive recording all these cringey lines?” Alex: “What’s your secret?” Sultan: *laughs* Sultan: I think if I do cringey lines cringey, it just means I did my job well and that’s okay for me. Sultan: Uh, a big “Frick you” to Alex, though, cause these lines are so cringey, I can’t believe this was a real person. Alex: What!? Alex: Yeah, I can’t believe someone like Sultan would take up this role as a douchebag. Sultan: *laughs* Alex: Yeah, but he did so well, um, yeah, but thank you for recording all these , this, three part series. Sultan: No, thank you, it was an honor to play a *censored* Stephen. Alex: *laughs* Should I bleep that? Sultan: I dunno, it’s up to you. Alex: To you. Sultan: *laughs* Scolding tea. Alex: Anyway, thank you for watching! Sultan: Thank you! Alex: Alright, bye! Sultan: Peace.
