Made Up Imaginary Boyfriend

Sunday Confessional: I Came Up With an Imaginary Boyfriend

This week's confession comes from our anonymous Confession Booth group in the TrèsSugar Community. Weigh in with your advice below.

I'm 21, a junior in college, and it seems like everyone around me is hooking up and/or falling in love. I'm so busy with classes and work that I don't have time to breathe, and when I do have some time off I'd rather use it to do something I enjoy instead of suffering through yet another blind date. I know my friends mean well, but they don't get that I'm not interested in a relationship at the moment. So to stop them from constantly asking me if I've met a cute guy, I made up a boyfriend.

His name is Chase and he is perfect for me. Good looks, smart, and as forward looking as I am. That's why whenever my friends want to meet him, he's always busy. Either in class or working or at his internship. That's how I've managed to go three months without my friends finding out. But then a month ago, I met this great guy in my English class and his name is Alex. He's adorable and he's everything that I made "Chase" to be except better, if that's possible.

My best friend saw me having lunch with Alex a few days ago and thinks that Alex was "Chase." She, of course, told all my other friends and now they are demanding to meet him. Accept I don't know what to tell Alex. I don't want him to think I'm a psycho chick with imaginary boyfriends, but at the same time I think I should tell him about "Chase" since it's bound to come up. And I don't know how to explain to my friends that "Chase" is gone from my life and Alex is in it.

Somehow in the process of making my life easier I think I complicated it more.

There's lots of cool stuff going on in our community — join it, check it out, share your posts or advice in the great groups, and maybe we'll feature it here on TrèsSugar!
