What do you do if you met online, got married, and completely told your close friends how it happened BUT didn't tell other people? In fact, you lied, declaring you were set up by friends. You thought the other people would be passing acquantainces but they became much closer friends.....

Not only does it make mixing of the friends who are + are not in "the know" difficult. It just really sucks if you have to tell people who thought you were sincere and nice with whome you thought you could have good friendships with that you lied right at the beginning of meeting them and have to risk ruining the new relationship. The people who became friends are new work and universitymates that, well, later have become good friends. And, I'm really sure that if the couple met today online instead of 7-8 years ago, they probably would be much more at ease talking about it for what that's worth. Thanks for any input.
