How do you know if he's lying or playing trick on people
In my group of friends and acquaintances there is a guy that I like. One day we were hanging out and I overheard him and my closest guy friend talked (he and my closest guy friend are very close too). They go like this:
My guy friend: Dude stop texting your girlfriend (in a joking way, because my guy friend didn't know who he was texting)
Him: I wish.
Then he put on his bag and wanted to leave but suddenly he put down his bag and got some more drinks, stayed a little longer then left.
Another hanging out, my guy friend suddenly asked him: so, are u dating someone?
Him: Yeahhh ( then he paused for 5 secs) and he said: Nahhh. ( then paused for a bit) then he said: I'm dating this person. Then he showed a pic of his guy friend whom I know too. Then we laughed it off.
So is he lying or is he playing trick on people? please help me out. Many thanks :) p/s my guy friend doesn't dare to ask him for more details because it may ruin things.
