Ladies, we’ve all done it, so don’t even try to deny.

The fake boyfriend.

Hopefully we don’t take him places, but we’ve definitely all brought him up. Maybe to be a dick to an ex-BFF (not proud of it), but more likely to get rid of some creepy dude who is putting the moves on us.

FOR THE RECORD: I’ve never made out with a cardboard dude.

………Okay, I did used to make out with my posters of Leonardo DiCaprio.

NOT EVEN ASHAMED.

Anyway.

Fake boyfriends. So yeah, what I’m saying is that I’ve used them in the past as a way of getting out of a creepy conversation (again…).

But I’ve also used them as a method of saying “no” when being asked out by non-creepy dudes I’m simply not interested in. And to be honest, I thought that was a totally fine thing to do until recently.

Because recently, I’ve been throwing caution to the wind and asking guys out when I want to go out with them. And it has yet to go well for me. I mean, one of them was just like, “I don’t think we should,” and that was totally cool with me. But a couple others have been like, “Oh…I have a girlfriend.”

Only they said it in such a way.

Like, an it’s-obviously-not-true way.

And you know what? It hurts. I mean I’m not gonna go stand on a ledge or anything – I’m not even going to cry about it – but it’s like, why not just say “I don’t think we should go past friendship,” or, “I don’t think of you in that way”?

Basically, grow a pair, because I have. And don’t use my game on me, because I’ve decided to stop using it.

Lesson learned: If it hurts when the tables are turned, don’t do it to people anymore.
