A catfish is a fish that gets its name from a row of cat's whiskers [/snakey]

Eh, I like having a part of what I do online that can never be traced back to who I am in real life but doing it to trick someone is bad.

I was watching the Australian version of I'm A Celebrity and Casey Donovan them was catfished for SIX years because a guy rang her up while she was on the Australian Idol tour and she was suckd in but never met him laugh.gif I just can't fathom how it would go that long, but she was 16 at the time and said that she'd never had a boyfriend and sort of clung onto the false hope that someone did love her, it turned out to be some random woman posing as the guy's friend, Casey met her and the woman would give excuses as to why the guy couldn't come.

I don't understand how it's possible to catfish with Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat etc. .... like I could see through it straight away if it were to happen to me. People are idiots if they get catfished.

Yeah I'd always be suspicious, and always am, if I couldn't have one of those profiles from them. Like if it's grindr or tinder and we chat properly I just add them on FB or snapchat or instagram, usually because it's just easier to talk on FB or something, but also so you know they aren't fake.

The story I said was from 2004, so before social media really, but you'd still be very suspicious at not meeting them for that long... As the woman she told the story to said, if she didn't meet them or see who they are at all after a week or two of talking (personally I'd prefer a pic in the first place we aren't being set up by Cilla Black), she'd be a bit suspicious about it and confront him, that's the same for me.

I love the show Catfish! It was so addictive that I binged every episode of it in the summer haha. The suspense of finding out the true identity of the catfish had me hooked *.* I have also watched plenty of YouTube videos of people's catfishing stories as well. I just find it fascinating that someone can create a whole new identity and the people that talk to them actually fall for it for many years. Especially the extreme cases on the show like when a guy genuinely thought he'd been talking to Katy Perry for years mellow.gif A pretty cruel and manipulative thing to do, though I guess it's sad that the core of it usually stems from being so unhappy with your own life that you'd rather pretend to be somebody else. It's a bit crazy when there are cases of internet relationships where people go years without even hearing the other person's voice for instance, perhaps they just want to believe it's real so badly that they just choose to put up with this stuff. People should always webcam or get the other person to send a snap of them holding up a sign or whatever, that's always a huge red flag if the other is hesitant.

Someone actually used my pictures to catfish others on Kik a few years ago! Kinda flattering I guess but I was naturally a bit creeped out

Omfg the Katy Perry one !!!!!! I still cannot at that.

But yes I think it's something psychological in the target, often they'll be really lonely and unloved. I know in the example I mentioned, she said she'd never had a boyfriend, nobody ever took notice of her, and here was a man on the phone saying he loved her and she was beautiful. She said she kind of knew deep down after a while that it wasn't real but kind of repressed it in the hope that blindly it would end up being real.

Catfish and the Bottlemen are a good band, I liked 'Kathleen' particularly.

I pretended to be a female using my best friends picture while I was on coolclarity.

I blame being 14 and being surrounded by homophobic people in my childhood. So. I thought no one would like me if I was "me". I was wrong. I think you don't realize the gravity of what you're doing when in that type of scenario. You are so desperate for kindness and friendship you'll do anything to find it. I am 27 now and have never really had a desire to be a female... the south just had me mentally f***ed up.
