When I was 21 I met up with a dude who said he was 31 or so. He looked YOUNG in his pic so I figured, ‘why not’. 

When I met up with him he looked WAY OLDER and told me his pic was old. 

Bye, b*tch.

I’d be dying to know who it was you were talking to!  

I don’t think I have ever been catfished, but I was never really interested in meeting people off the internet, but the ones I have met all ended up being true to themselves.  

Admittedly, my best friend and I used to catfish people when we were in elementary school.  No one would talk to girls that were in elementary school and middle school, so we’d pretend to be high schoolers.  We were dumb.

Oh god yes. Back in the early 2000s I was a naive 15 year old who went to a small all girls boarding school and thought she was a lesbian. I found this super cool 18 year old girl on MySpace with a punky emo haircut, athletic build, and a wicked sense of humor. We struck it up eventually moving it over to AIM and then agreeing to meet up for a date. Well since I was young I couldn’t see an R movie and no PG13s were playing so we settled on Garfield the movie- perfect first date fodder. We met in the food court and Bees, this was not my MySpace crush. This was a mid twenties to young 30s woman who looked like Roseanne Barr if she had a bowl cut. I was mortified. This was one of my first dating experiences ever. I awkwardly got through the date and made up the excuse my parents were picking me up RIGHT NOW and never talked to her again. I was terrified of meeting people over the internet for almost a decade after that.

4 of my friends were catfished by the same guy (also our freind) posing as a girl on snapchat. This guy managed to trick quite a few of my friends into sending naked pictures posing as a girl. The creep only got caught when he accidentally sent a picture of himself from camera roll to one 🤷‍♂️😆

Like prior PP’s, my girlfriends and I would catfish people back when we were in lie 5th grade, through middle school probably. There used to be a TON of chat rooms on MSN (I think thats where they were) and then we’d find people through AIM (a/s/l!) lol. I forgot about those days.

As an adult, I don’t believe I’ve been catfished but I did try online dating/tinder when I was single so who knows. I had conversations with a lot of different guys but only met up with one in real life, and he was the same person on his profile.

No, but I know my husband was. Found out about it after our relationship got serious.
