    It sucks you feel that way.. Maybe the reason you feel the need to lie about this is because your friends are the type of people you should be around since you feel you need to prove something to them. Don't tell them you made it up- just end the lie; say you broke up or something. Lying is not good for the heart man.

    You don't need to pretend to have a boyfriend to impress your friends, they won't think badly of you because your single! Give it up before you get too deep in lies, just pretend it was a fling and brush it off if mentioned.

    Im 18, all my friends have boyfriends, even the fat ugly ones (no offence) but u know what I mean. So I made up a random number and downloaded a fake sms app and I send fake message pretending they are from my 'boyfriend' so if my friends go thru my phone or somethin they will see it. Sometimes I say I cant make it if they wana go out for a meal or something by saying my bf is taking me out.
    I just wana fit it, so is it really that sad?
    What I dont get, if the "fat ugly ones" can get a BF, why cant you?

    When you post something asking whether it's sad that implies you already suspected it was but didn't know to what level it was.

    Wouldn't it be easier to date a gay guy who is still in a closet so both of you get some sort of benefits?

    LOL it's called respect.
    Don't try backfiring it on me, because it won't work.
    No-one has the right to tell anyone to sort their life out and if I see anyone saying **** like that, I will question it.
    It's people like you, with horrible personalities that decide to play along with it not caring that it actually might make someone feel like absolute ****!
    I'm not backfiring anything onto you. What on Earth do you mean no-one has the right to sort their life out? It's clear that the OP does need to sort out certain aspects of their social life, it is clearly not mentally healthy. Merely telling someone to sort their life out is not a notion of disrespect, it is a blunt answer to helping someone. So I don't know how you conclude that I have a horrible personality, you don't know me.

    OP,

    The sad part is that you feel you need to have a boyfriend in the eyes of everyone else.

    Be happy and confident in yourself, and in being single.

    Don't conform to everyone else' ideals and standards.

    If you want a bf, that is perfectly fine. But don't feel the pressure to impress others or show others you have one.

    That is creepy as hell. You're the new Alex Forrest. Congratulations.

    Wait, your boyfriend doesn't even exist AT ALL. Even creepier.

    One of the guys I knew in secondary school did this about a girlfriend. It was hilarious. Her Facebook profile picture was from Google Images.

    Lots of girls pretend to their friends that they have boyfriends (kind of like a status symbol) in the same way that many will claim they have had sex (when they actually haven't) so actually not that sad/weird.

    I knew a guy who did this to. His "girlfriend" only had one picture and you couldn't see her face properly on it. Her clothes and hair looked like they were late 90s/2000ish as well. What made it even sadder is that he was in his late 20s.

    At OP: The nearest I've gotten to this was when I was 17 and some complete utter chav (he was a complete low life, he was 18 yet bullied kids still in primary school) fancied me and wouldn't take no for an answer so I just told him I had a boyfriend so he'd leave me alone. I suggest you "break up" with your fake boyfriend asap before anyone finds out he's not real.
