Lied about past relationships to friend...? Watch

    I met a girl some months ago. She asked me one day if I had a boyfriend/about my past relationships. I didn't know her that well because it was the first day we met and I've had a couple relationships but they were weird, the guys were mental and possessive, and they weren't even like relationships. I didn't want to really get into it, so I just said I've never had a boyfriend.

    Now, she's friends with a guy I'm friends with a little, and I think he likes me. I'm wondering if she's told him I've never had a boyfriend..and if he asks me, I'll need to tell him the truth..

    I'm not thaat close to this girl but I've known her for 7 months now and there were opportunities to tell her that I have had 3 boyfriends but they were all weird, but I just never wanted to talk about it or get any pity that they weren't normal relationships etc. I just feel kind of embarrassed to have had such weird relationships with nutter guys (one was diagnosed with schizophrenia later).

    How do I explain the truth to this guy about why I even said I'd never had any bfs in the first place?

    It's not a big deal tbh, but I don't want them to think I just like lying which is not true at all. I just didn't want to talk about it.

    You shouldn't have done it in the first place. You lied "because you were afraid of the consequences" now you're going to face even bigger consequences by only telling the truth now.

    This really isn't a big deal. If she asks you, just say that you felt uncomfortable talking about it 7 months ago: true and simple.
