They were not mates.

One woman recalled that love is so blind as a teenager that it took her three months to realize her boyfriend only had one leg.

“I was 17. I met this boy at a rodeo. I saw him across the road, and I said, ‘Here’s a tall, cool guy, and I need to get him.’ So we exchanged numbers. Three weeks later, we were in love.”

She and her 6-foot-6 boyfriend, whose name she did not disclose, said TikToker, “We’re inseparable. We’ve seen each other, every single day. We’ve spent every waking moment together.”

I admit there are some red flags. She mentions that he wears long pants to summer outdoor events, limps when he walks and prevents her from coming to basketball games.

Then one day, I noticed something was off when I looked at a picture of the two of them together.

“The more I stared at it, the more I felt, ‘I think I’m being scammed,'” she recalls.

“So I took this picture of my friends, and I said, ‘Hey guys, I think my friend might only have one leg.'”

She said her friends were baffled by the accusation and encouraged her to get answers from her lover.

He eventually confessed after a few weeks, she said.

“It’s like ‘I have polio,'” she claimed. “I was like, ‘Listen, I’ve suspected this for two weeks now, and you’ve made it really weird by not telling me.'”

One person claimed, “I dated a guy for 3 months before I realized he had baby hands. How? 🤯”

The others could not bear her ignorance. “Did you all…know…because you didn’t notice a missing leg/prosthesis while at it? That’s funny either way 😂,” one user laughed.
