Today, I introduced my long-distance boyfriend of 2 years to my friends. I told him how my friends jokingly call him my imaginary Internet boyfriend. He thought it was so funny that when they met, he claimed to be my cousin, saying that I paid him to pretend to be my boyfriend. They believed him. FML

Sounds like he has a nice sense of humor, but it is frustrating to try and prove something, only to be let down again. I hope your friends will believe you soon, it would be hard to fake a potential wedding!

It's not funny to be the butt of someone's joke though, or to feel like no one believes you. It's easy to see the joke when you're on the outside. Some people may be able to laugh it off but for others, who may have been the butt of people's jokes all their lives and been made to feel like no one takes their feelings seriously, then it's not something you can just shake off, and being told to 'lighten up' again just invalidates their feelings. I'd be upset if that happened to me too. I hope he apologises because even though it might be a joke to him, it's obviously upsetting for OP.

Well, I am some one who is always the butt of the joke, and you know what, I can fucking laugh it off and get over it, people are assholes, so don't pay their jokes any mind, laugh at yourself more than they laugh at you.
