kind of backwards from people that claim they "arent" married when they are so they can cheat but have you ever said you WERE married to avoid people approaching you or pursuing you? did it help? did you get caught? lol

I once had a friend who told me that he was not married. And once I called him on his landline phone for some urgent work and his wife picked up the phone. I did not talk to him for a couple of months after that. And when we did meet and I asked him he said he was married just a week back. I just let go of the topic and broke all contact with him. Now we do talk to each other but just as casual friends.

Actually I have done that before. I remember when I was driving down the road one time, some guy comes up and ask for my number and I was like, well I'm sorry but I'm married, I just wasn't attracted to him and I wasn't even with anyone. Now I can yell it from the roof tops cause I am married. So I don't have to lie anymore. Lol

Yup, I was with my hubby for a while, before we got married - but I claimed I was married, to avoid sticky situations at work. Sometimes in the midst of projects, my team-members and I would be so involved in our tasks, and got very close. Once and twice, I've had either misled them or these guys have misread me, and got into very sticky emotional situations. I certainly wasn't interested, but this guy was telling me otherwise. So I told my hubby (then boyfriend), and he suggested that I tell them that I was married. It worked to a certain extent - at least I don't have to worry about such situations!

Goodness me no. However there are some fundamental differences between you and me. You're female, I'm male, you're beautiful, I'm like the back of a bus, you are young, I'm not! However when I was young I would have been delighted to be resisting the attentions of young ladies. I did alright, but they weren't queuing up. I haven't said that I am unmarried since I got married 22 years ago either.

Yep that was a common answer for my girlfriends and I when we would go out to the night clubs before I was married. Lots of times we just wanted to be hang out and have some fun. It seemed like those were the times when some guy would just keep asking and asking one of us to dance. After a few times we would use the infamous, "I really can't I'm married, our husbands should be coming in soon." We never got questioned so I guess we never really got caught.

No, I have never told someone I was married when I wasn't. I just told them that I was not interested in them. I am not the keeper of everyone's feelings. If I am not interesed, I am going to say I am not interested. Why hould I worry about the feeling of someone I was not intereted in in the first place? If I was not intereed enough to lie and tell them I was married when I wasn't even in a relationship (I'm married NOW and that's the truth!!!) then the peson was probaly a PEST, in the first place, and why should I CARE?
