I lied on the Internet and she asked me to be her girlfriend.

I've grown extremely close with a few people over the past two years, the only problem is they know me as someone else. I was 14 and insecure, so when someone asked me how old I was I lied and said I was 16... Now, that doesn't seem like a big deal but like fellow liars may know, one thing leads to another. It's like I couldn't even help myself, I didn't give myself time to process anything before it was already typed and sent. I told them my name was Riley (it's not) and when we talked for almost a year, we would send each other pictures of ourselves... I didn't know what to do since I obviously didn't look like the age I gave, so I sent a picture of my older sister. We continued talking and I got extremely close with this girl... She wanted to skype and I always refused... Despite that, the other day she asked me to be her girlfriend. Had I not lied about who I was , I wouldn't feel so guilty about saying yes. I truly do love talking to her but it's not fair for her - she deserves better. I honestly don't know what to do. I know it's my fault and I shouldn't be acting like the victim. I just don't know how to break up with her without confessing and completely breaking her heart. I don't want to hurt her. She's always cared for me and the feeling I have for her aren't fake... So, how do I tell her I just want to be friends? How can I tell her that a day after accepting...

  • Just tell her the way that you posted above. All you could do is be honest with her, maybe she might understand, or maybe she won't it's a chance you have to take. You really want to be honest then do it.

  • Fess up. You may find it's not that bad.
