Our expert says:
What actually matters is YOU, and clearly your bf is sensible enough to recognize that he has found something marvellous, which money can't buy --- you. And he's wise enough to appreciate this. Discuss this with your bf, and work out a plan together. You're right that it's an enormous strain to live a lie ( and even to remember which lie you told to which person !) And it's not needed --- anyone who will think less of you, rather than more of you, when they discover that you have come from a poor background and have achieved so much in life, is a fool who is not worth having as a friend anyway. So anyone who has any problem with the truth about you, is someone YOU ought to drop as a friend. The real friends will be as fond of you as ever, and proud of you, as well.
