It made me paranoid, now I can't tell who is real and who is just a big fat faker! Maybe thats just me...
Did Catfish make you paranoid?
What Guys Said 12
No, Catfish is old news to me.
I lived through the MSN Chat/Pre-Myspace Era, where almost everyone was full of bologna and girls on the internet were in fact, too good to be true. It hardened me in a way, because I experimented with catfishing seeing as how every feminized username with pink text would get the nerds all riled up. Female chat bots were a viable marketing ploy to get naïve users to join their sites, which we laugh at nowadays. It was too easy.
The experience as a catfish gave me a unique, hypersensitive ability to read behind text. I learned the mind of a creep. It was fairly evident that femininity was not an easy pattern of behavior to consistently replicate, so I understood the shortcomings of these men pretending to be girls. They compensated through excess charm and an outward plea that they are so wonderfully feminine with emoticons and cliché references. This act cannot go on forever, and that's one busted catfish.
The ugly females pretending to be models are harder to pinpoint because they are in fact females. Just not THOSE females. I say, if she's a good student and plays on the varsity team, why are you chatting with me for 5 hours on a Friday night? Seems strange, these are the habits of Jabba the Hut! Certainly I looked the part at the time.
Pictures and names are just smoke and mirrors. You have to read and understand the text and not be distracted by the shiny things. If you master that, Catfishing isn't an issue.
Of course, Video Chat anyways.0
Yes I am paranoid. It tried to eat my family.
basically i don't care who's a catfsh or not :-P0
Yeah tinder scares me now. I get skeptical when hot girls actually talk to me XD1
*reads update* well now i'm judging you0
It's pretty obvious who is fake to be honest.0
Of course it did.0
I never watched the show. I'm skeptical and genuine with everyone either way. I wouldn't catch feelings for someone I've never met, but wouldn't have a problem meeting someone I thought was interesting over the internet.1
It's just you.0

nope, not at all. I'm here mostly for the points, amazon giftcards, and as a way to kill time after class or before bed. I do have some people I talk to regularly on here but they're more online friends. I wouldn't be too devastated if they did end up catfishing me because it doesn't really concern me who it is behind the screen, so long as the conversation is good.
(I don't give any personal info like Instagram, FB, etc. so that none of the info here can be linked to me in real life through friends and whatnot. I'm super careful not too disclose too much info/pictures that someone could have taken off my personal FB as well so... paranoia is at a minimum. :) )0
Hell yes Lol
I will NEVER date online and if I do then they have to get on webcam and draw something specific I say or something so that I know they're not playing some twisted little game0
hahah nahhh whatever i mean you definitely have to be careful because theyre are some crazy people outnthere. I've never been the paranoid type though... careful maybe but mot paranoid. you should watch undercover boss its hilarious... it kinda reminds me of work because i work at a resteraunt and i actually see that stuff everyday. i mean you can never be too careful but i dont believe someone is out to get me0
Nah, I've met so many people from the internet in person without like video chatting etc. with them prior. Doesn't bother me. I can be a pretty trusting individual.0
I'm always paranoid of people on the net.1
basically if they can't video chat but they can take pics with their iphone 5, they're full of shit and a catfish0
Nope not really0
Eating food past best-before-date makes me paranoid.0
Nah, I don't really care.0
No, it didn't. I would never fall in love online, and certainly not with a guy who wouldn't meet me in real life.0
Who or what is catfish?1
