Boys play games

I had recently started talking to a new guy. I wouldn't say we had that much of a connection but he really did seem to like me, so I wanted to give him a chance.
However, I noticed something: whilst he was hitting on me, two of his close friends were doing the exact same thing. As a matter of fact, I had told one of them something that happened to me, and the other person repeated what I had said back to me.
I'm not 16, so I don't think this is a wild coincidence. I immediately reached out to another guy friend of mine and told him my dilemma. He laughed and said, "You know they're trying to see who gets you first, right? Just ignore them."
I laughed as well because that was exactly what I suspected. I ended up deleting their numbers. They texted and asked if I had gone off social media, since they couldn't see my WhatsApp dp or status, but I acted like I didn't know what they were talking about.
Now this is weird because they're going to see this post and know that I purposely ghosted all of them. But I really don't care.
It's crazy because in movies, you see two male friends fight over a girl and it messes up their friendship right? But the truth is that doesn't happen in real life.
Movies do a bad job of describing what actually happens in reality. Guys have more loyalty to their friends than we give them credit for.
So this is my advice to my fellow ladies: if he's hitting on you, and his homeboy is doing the same, they playing. Do yourself a favour and cut them off.
I love telling stories.
