We're not sure we buy this clarification, because Ryan Lochte is totally fratty enough to be all about one night stands.
But hey, we'll give him the benefit of the doubt for now — he didn't HAVE to try and clear it up if he didn't want to.
Just the fact that he does might means something!
Plus we get not being able to focus on a relationship while training… that would be super hard for the other person involved, too!
Take a listen to what Ryan has to say about his love life (above), and see if your BS detector goes off!
