    Imagine you've been seeing a guy for a little while - weeks or a few months. You're sleeping together and are pretty close and all that. Then, for lolz, one day he lays out a story about, for example, actually having a kid - or kind of not having broken up with his ex yet, or some other big schocker.
    Then after a little while of talking about it and all that (less than an hour, say), he tells you it was just a joke (and it really is one).

    What do you think your immediate/short-term reaction would be, as well as your longer-term response, and what would you think of him?

    Some poll options are included (wait 2 minutes after I post this, while I set the poll up!)

    Thanks everyone

    p.s. guys can comment as well, but only still with the roles this way round - i.e. what you think about a guy doing this to a girl, and if you ever would, if you'd find it funny, etc.

    Lol well it'd beg the question as to whether you said it was a joke to protect her feelings and if it was actually real despite it.

    I am male. I dont find the concept hilarious or completely awful, but talking for approx an hour is a rediculous amount of time, it would surely need to be retracted within about forty seconds.

    I voted 'be annoyed by it'... but only because it was a waste of 'less than an hour'. I think I'd just be disappointed that we wasted our breath talking about it.

    Why, did you do it?

    Yeh, even if it was a joke though, there could be some doubt in her mind that you just said it was a joke and it was actually real.

    Why, did you do it?
    Twice (I've only known two girls).

    The first time was short, like 10 or 15 minutes, and I said I had a son. When I told her I was joking, she got angry and try to hurt me a bit, but calmed down in a minute and then we just carried on as before.

    The second time was long, about an hour, and far more involved. It was also April Fool's day

    She hit me and threw me out and said she never wanted to hear from me again. We made up, kind of, a week later, but in the mean time she had told all her friends and family what a complete ******* I was, so the fallout from it actually meant that our friendship was poisoned and dieing, and we faded out from seeing each other.

    The funny thing here is that she said, while the joke was still going on, that if I sorted things out with the other girl then we could still be together. Maybe I shouldn't have admitted it was a joke :rolleyes:


    I find it really funny, I have to say.

    It sounds painfully unfunny. I'd call them a childish **** and never see them again.

    Seriously though, so you not think it's a bit of a waste of time?

    I would be annoyed at him mainly because he "joke" wouldn't have made me laugh at all but rather waste an hour of my life.

    Dump him and go out with someone who actually has a good sense of humour and is great at telling hilarious one liners.

    If he kept it going for like 3 minutes then it would be ok (still a bit weird). Half an hour takes the piss, you don't lead somebody along like that for a ****** joke.

    I wouldn't have done it personally. Get a new guy.
