A Pretend Girlfriend Of My Own

I've been seriously thinking about getting a pretend girlfriend. I've heard of the concept before and with the recent inquiries made by my Mom, I was wondering when folks from work will start inquiring. Not necessarily about if I'm gay but when am I getting a girlfriend.

I went to this anniversary lunch recently for one of my co-workers and this one guy I thought would never get hitched started talking about his upcoming wedding plans. He was going on and on about it. Of course I had nothing of the sort to share and I feared someone asking me the question.

Since a lot of my favorite lady bloggers are unfortunately not in the Chicago area(*LOL*), I was thinking I need to find another lady that wouldn't mind being my pretend girlfriend. Basically this lady would be privy to knowing about my real preferences, of course. She would have to occasionally attend work related functions with me and pretend to be really into me. We'd work out the logistics of how we met and stuff like that.

The lady I want would have to have her own personal goals, have some common sense, be quick-witted, and be able to adapt to any given situation with the ease of a tigress. Hopefully this lady and I would become really great friends in time.

I have some fantasies of what my pretend girlfriend would look like. Here's a few:

The one lady friend that I have in my life Sally could potentially be cool, but she would squick out at the thought of pretending to be into me. Plus I've already introduced her to some of the circle as my friend, which she is. So she's out of the running.

I thought about asking this one lady at my job (actually she's the person that was celebrating her 20th anniversary last week at that lunch). Lana and I actually have a really cool relationship at work and she was one of my bowlers on the team. Oddly enough, Reid kept hinting that I should pair myself up with her after her recent divorce. From my years of knowing Lana, I get the sense I could trust her with my secret.

She'd be perfect too because we'd have a perfect reason for keeping the relationship secret.

But I think my "pretend girlfriend" should be someone nobody knows.

So are there ladies in the Chicago area that might be interested? Holla at a brother!

I say fuck what people say tell them u like to keep your personal life seperate from the professinal. If u are dating someone tell them that but that's all u tell them. Don't put on a show for those people. They aren't that important.

I agree with K Kaos, get you a "fag hag". The show Will and Grace is the perfect example.

E, you have got to be kidding me, right? I really don't think that this is a good idea. What happens if the woman actually falls for you?

Wow this is interesting. It is too bad we can't accept people for who they are so they have to "pretend" oh well, good luck, who knows this might just "straighten" you out.

As much as I agree with all of these comments, I've thought about this too, not because I care about what others think... more because dudes vs. women as companions leave much to be desired. That dude right there brings up a good point which is why you should go with my suggestion. Here in New York, a lot of bisexual women/ lesbians are HOT. Thats where I may start and I'll let you know how it goes!

I agree with 4gotten1. I have been out for some time but I still recall when I wasn't and thought about getting a PGF. I never act on it and to think about it it can get a bit sticky when you are dealing with other people emotion. Still if you decide to go a head with this I wish you much luck.

Now I know you should come out on your time, but this would be digression of coming out BIG TIME.

However, if you got a boyfriend that did REALLY GREAT drag then HOOK IT UP.

Yes the fag hag concept works well.. But you can also get one of your godo judies who happens to be a feminine dyke and let her be the made up girlfriend.

Never mess with women on the job, or males. Problems.. she may like you but if she falls for you and you reject her then your business is all over the office.

Nah, for real, don't front for those people. Let them think what they want. We do enough pretending on the job. We don't have to add this to the list now, do we?
