So having been 'Catfished' myself in college (sigh, sad to admit, several times), I'm starting to wonder if he told the truth. There is (or was) a deep pool of crazy ass women online who lie about who they are because, one can only assume, they enjoy the attention(?).
They make up crazy stories as to why they can't meet, video chat, etc. Lie about things like illness, disease, accidents, dying family members, etc.
Now, if this was months, I get it. Maybe he is just insecure and got duped by a crazy girl lying about who she is.
If this was truly for 3 years, well..... Not sure what I believe then.
The AZ player coming out, well, I thin he is full of it and flat out lying to try to cover for a friend.
In Bold, in the interview I heard this morning, HE talked about her physical beauty, suggesting he did meet her. Could he be talking about this from possibly a photo?
Man this thing is absolutely nuking futz....I still think this is some sort of cover up for something greater that has yet to be reviled...
