From a hang out to a boyfriend

A few weeks ago, I heard about a friend of a friend who claimed to be in a new relationship.  I was skeptical.  This person has a habit of elaborating certain parts of his life which makes me wonder if he really believes his own lies.

Long story short, he's hung out with this new guy a few times in the past month and they really like one another, so he guesses that means he has a boyfriend.  And, I'm thinking, he's 'hung out' with this guy a few times and he's already in a relationship?  Is that all it takes?  Apparently, for some people, it is.  I, on the other hand, must come from a different world.

Even after dating someone for a couple of months, I still wonder if we're 'going steady' (i.e. exclusive to one another, or just putzing around), or not.  Even if 'the talk' has been had, it still makes me ponder if we're both on the same page of a rather lengthy book.

Truth be told, I don't really believe anything he says.  A large grain of salt must be spread on those meals he's feeding us.  A big part of me thinks he's really just a 14-year-old girl in a body of a 30ish-year-old man.  If his fantasies were true, then I'd have to believe he's dated every male supermodel and actor who has ever crossed his path (and he's a 5/10 on a really good day, no matter how sparkling his personality).

Then again, I tend to keep my own tales a secret.  Even if I am dating someone, it's not like anyone would know.  Maybe I have hung out with someone a couple of times and now we're in a relationship, too.  But, that could just be a fantasy, too.

i know people like that too. I had a friend who would claim, Oh yeah so and so is my ex. And it's like, Oh really? Because you went on one blind date with him? I see.

I think relationship labels are more fluid in the gay universe. For better or worse.
