    I have been re-watching It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia from the beginning. In the season 2 opener, Charlie gets run over by Dennis and winds up in a wheelchair. After Charlie begins to receive special attention from women due to his ailments, the gang all decided to fake disabilities in order to pick up dates.



    This got me wondering about what outrageous lies people tell in order to get a date, sex, etc.

    This post is meant to be in good fun!

    I will start it off.

    I once faked a charley horse in my hammy to get a college track buddy to help me stretch it out nice and deep. What can I say? Dude was hot!

    I tell straight women I'm gay so they want to sleep with me and I tell gay guys I'm straight so they want to sleep with me. Everyone likes a challenge, I guess.

    Just don't try that on everyone. Some people will respect your differences.

    I'm not so sure about the basic premise, at least in the gay community, which favors fitness, good looks, and no visible defects. I've talked with gay guys in wheelchairs, and most complain how empty their social & love lives are.

    Sure, people will open doors for them, I've seen bartenders come around to the other side to individually serve them, lots of help & generosity given. But I also note many of these guys are alone, seldom with a companion, or a regular one, few guys visiting & talking with them.

    When I came out at nearly 46 I was already using a cane. I quickly learned to keep it in the car (I also had a folding one for carrying on my motorcycle) when going into a gay club, where I could manage short distances without it. I definitely got fewer guys approaching me if I had my cane hanging at the bar. So I'm not convinced how true-to-life this sitcom premise is in regards to gay men.

    Doesn't have to be a physical limitation necessarily... The show obviously portrays extremes in social behavior. Posts are meant to be anecdotal at best.

    Just though it would be funny icon_lol.gif

    Guys are usually only into my looks (specifically, my ass), so I play dumb and let them think they're manipulating me, when really I'm a secret power bottom, holding all the strings. As an added bonus, I'm able to shirk accountability.icon_razz.gif

    It might be, although as I said, I'm not sure lying about a serious physical disability like being confined to a wheelchair would give a gay guy an advantage in his love life. Now I have known a couple of guys over the years to have faked terminal illness to get sympathy & attention. But again, I can't recall that added attention led to a date or sex.

    Of course I've encountered online fakes of all kinds, who'll claim cancer, serious accidents, all kinds of tragedies, all the way up to faking their own deaths. But naturally that's a totally different virtual environment, not what I presume you're considering here.

    I suppose the worst I've done was cry a little more than I should have when hurt as a child, to get an extra hug from Mom. icon_redface.gif

    I once lied to a guy that I needed workout tips so I could get his number.

    I went to a guys church group so that I could get closer to him.

    Thanks for this, not_superman! I love the part where she asks "How long have you been disabled?" and he replies "10 years?" Hilarious!
