I have definitely warded off an approaching jerk by mentioning a fictional boyfriend. But that’s about the only time I’ll blatantly lie about my relationship status. One of my friends always lies to her grandparents and tells them she’s dating when she’s not to avoid their constant pressure. And of course, there are many people, unfortunately, who gladly lie about being in a relationship in order to appear single. So tell me ladies, do you ever lie about your relationship status?
