Lies Women Tell: I have a boyfriend
Installment 1 of 5
You saw me walking down the street and decided I was cute and wanted to make your move. I turned around after you tapped my shoulder and after speaking to you for 1 minute I didn’t think you were worthy of anymore of my time. I could tell right away that we had nothing in common from those inital 60 seconds. In order to spare your feelings about you not being my type, I say to you “I have a boyfriend.”
The truth is that this is a complete lie- I haven't had a boyfriend in 2 years. I am also sure that I am not the first and will not be the last woman to lie to you about my current relationship status. I decided I didn’t want to waste your time by giving you my number and never answering your calls, so I told a little white lie.
Why is it that you decide to respond with, “We can just be friends. I really just want to get to know you.”
What the heck does that mean?
How can a male and a female who just met off the streets, just be friends? The answer is they can’t. How do you propose we become friends anyway? Go to the movies together, have a quick lunch here and there, isn't that considered dating? At this moment I've already informed you that I was committed to someone else, so please don’t embarrass yourself any further. I’m not interested in getting to know you and NO I don’t want to be your friend.
