So a few girls I know have said that they have boyfriends when they actually don't. So it's starting to make me wonder... Why are these women lying?! I'm not talking about those who use having a boyfriend as an excuse not to give a guy her digits, but calling a guy her boyfriend when they barely know each other or have only been talking for a couple months. Girl A: Shes 16, claims to have a "black" boyfriend who is a few years older than her, claims that she's only met him once and they "held hands for 5 minutes", talks to him through Facebook (apparantly). She's clearly full of shit. Boyfriend has never met the parents or family. But claims he "wants to ask parents permission" (does anybody still do this shit anymore?!) Girl B: Girl A's older sister, XBF with drug problems walked out of her life, less than a week later had a new man who's in his 30's, who claims he is her boyfriend, they met online, only have known each other for a few months. Me and my girl think this is a rebound and same situation with the boyfriend not meeting the parents or family. Girl C: School Mate of mine, fat, ginger, fugly, crazy eyes, overheard her talking about how she does this and that with her boyfriend, seen her with various boys but I highly doubt anybody would get with that unless they were completely trashed (which is what I suspect happens often), hangs with the druggies around town. But in all seriousness are these women just attention whores or what? These women clearly don't have any boyfriends but are lying through their teeth about how great their relationships are, so what gives?
