The only reason why women lie about “having a boyfriend” is because it’s simply more convenient for them. That’s the only reason why. No teenage girl would think that the boy from her class who just asked her out is going to kill her if she tells him that she’s not interested. Please, you need a reality check.
And worst thing about it that most women lie about it because it gives them a sense of unity, thinking “well, everyone does it, so it must be OK”. A prime-example of the so called “we-vs-them” mentality. Mind you, “appeal to unity” is a tool that was heavily misused by the propaganda officials of the Nazi German regime. Just think about it. You’re better than that.
Have a nice day.
