I’m josh and I’m 17 , I’m a pretty shy guy and don’t make friends , truth is I don’t have any.
I’m not liked at high school and I have no confidence.
Long story short. I started going to the gym, a few months ago.
I started pretending too be someone else, more confident and to do so , I gave myself a new name . A bit like a new identity , when I wasn’t liking who I was. I know it sounds stupid. Well with this new confidence I started chatting to a few guys my age not from my school and they really like me and we go out and we work out together but they keep asking me to add them on Facebook but thing is with this new confidence I didn’t give my real first name , I’ve been calling myself Aaron since I first met him. It just seemed to be cool having a different identity and being someone not shy or awkward. How stupid would I look telling them this now ? Months into them thinking I’m Aaron. Feel a idiot now but it gave me a huge confident boost to be someone else . Advice please

If you don't want to admit that you lied, just say that you go by your middle name - lots of people do.

Similarly to what PhoenixFortune said, you could just say you actually prefer to be called the name Aaron and go by it, as opposed to your true name. Just don't make too big of a deal out of it and they won't either.
