I'm sorry but I guess I am missing the question. Can a guy "fake" a relationship for his own emotional or mental health or for sex? First off I doubt if your guy is faking anything. Sounds like he might be having some real personal issues and he obviously needs a friend. We all need friends. I had a counselor friend once tell me if people would talk to friends they wouldn't need to talk to her. So what do you think he is faking? That he likes to or needs to talk with you? That he might be at one of those confusing points in his life, maybe a cross roads.2

My first husband did this. Once he had me caught - aka married - all that mattered to him was sex and the financial support I provided with my work. He worked but it was just a minimum wage cashier job (he promised he would finish college and get something better but he dropped out when we got married and he never did), he used that to buy things for himself while I brought in the money to pay rent and buy food and stuff. So it is possible. I feel stupid falling for it.1
