base on my experience people pretend to be someone there not.... maybe becuz of there lack of confidence....

i know so many posser's and it sucks when they tell me that they are only pretending but its alright on me.... because i actually understand them cuz in some point in time i too became like them..........


i pretend to be someone better showing the girl i like in CR pictures of other person which is better looking than me...^^
everything went well and then one day i realize that i really love this girl and she must know the whole truth and i admit that i am definitely a posser haha.... and as punishment she leave's me...... broken even if we did not see each other in personal...... i have learn my lessons and i will never do it again.....^^ hehe IF people don' t want me on what i am.. so be it.... i don't nid people who does not want me..^^

:P

People pretend to be what they're not in order to fit in with certain types of people. Maybe it will be backfire in the long run if they pretend to be interested in things they're not, maybe they should be genuine if they want to find real friends. Personally I think that if you aren't straightforward from the beginning, the end result cannot be pleasant. Either you'll be stuck with friends you have nothing in common with or be considered a poser.

I act like that sometimes, but I don't really consider it being "fake." I put on a difference face for different people. You won't act the same way around your grandmother or boss as you'd act around your friends at a party. Is one act more fake than another? I don't think so. People are multi-dimensional, you don't always act the same way all the time.

Sometimes people do it as a way to adapt in certain environments.

Well, on the internet you're less cautious of your actions... or what you type. Sometimes, people tend to be more crazy with their typing, which makes you misunderstand their real personality. Well, maybe I'm wrong but, I am quite different on the internet than I am in real life. Shyness and confidence is the problem. ^^

If your 'pretend' means acting like how someone else do, then its merely covering yourself with a shell - an ugly one. On my perspective, people do so in order to get attention or to feel a certain way they want, cool for example. (I do act cool sometimes but it always fail xD)

Another thing is that people are too afraid to be their real self. They mask themselves with something more beautiful which in the long run, will be discovered and there will be consequences.
