Everyone is still going crazy about Manti Te’o's “fake” girlfriend–the young lady that every media outlet in the country has become obsessed with, the one Manti often exchanged tweets with, the one he would often speak to on the phone with for hours every night.

This girlfriend, everyone is now saying, was a complete fabrication. Simply put…she never existed!

It is very possible that Manti Te’o is lying and this girlfriend was, in fact, a complete fabrication. It is also very much a possbility that he never tweeted with anyone, or talked to anyone–because she really did not exist!

But if that is truly the case, one would think that Notre Dame would have discovered this by now, given that the university had conducted a formal investigation.

The school says Te’o was the victim of an elaborate hoax conducted by a “group of people.” And one of those people, presumably, was a woman on the other end of a phone.

Te’o spoke to ESPN and described how he talked to this girl on the phone “every night.” He spoke on the amazing relationship he had with her and how much he missed her after she “died.”

As crazy as all of this may seem…it’s actually quite possible that Te’o was, and is, telling the truth!

In a world where social media has practically taken control of people’s lives, it’s possible to have very real, meaningful relationships without ever seeing someone.

Just ask all the people who have online relationships and letter-based relationships and email-based relationships!

If this is the type of relationship Manti Te’o had, there’s one other conclusion that is inescapable:

His girlfriend told him several lies:

She lied about her name.

She lied about her background.

She lied about dying of leukemia.

She lied about a lot of things.

So if Manti Te’o's girlfriend was lying to him all the time, well, that wouldn’t be the first time a girl has told a lie. And it wouldn’t make her “fake.”

Regardless of all the bullshit lies, a real woman was on the other end of a phone! She still would have been his “girlfriend,” even if she was lying all the time!

It’s  very possible to form a strong emotional bond with someone… even if they’re actually someone else’s girlfriend or spouse and they’re lying to you all the time.

So, unless Manti Te’o is lying…which we don’t believe he is… it’s time to rid of this idea of him having a “fake girlfriend.”

Te’o had a girlfriend…she just lied to him about pretty much everything!
