I pretend I have a boyfriend when delivery men come round – people call me 'mad' but it makes me feel safe
ONE single woman has revealed that she goes to great lengths to pretend she lives with a boyfriend to feel safe around male delivery men.
Model Silken Chu, who lives in Vancouver, Canada, ensures she constantly keeps her home looking like she lives with her man, as it gives her peace of mind.
Taking to her TikTok account, Silken shows how she leaves men's clothing, including boxing gloves around the house to look like 'her man' is there.
Posting under the domain @sulken she said: "I have a stranger (male) coming over with a coffee table from Facebook Marketplace so I need to look like I don't live alone."
The model shows how she places men's shoes in her hallway and has an Ipad playing a man's voice in the background under a soundtrack called "Boyfriend roleplay, deep voice, jealous boyfriend."
"Is that a man's voice coming from another room?" she said.
