We live in a world where more and more people are finding love online, however...one thing puts me off. Being catfished! (Person is nowhere near who or what they say they are). Has it happened to you? Or have you been catfishing someone and snapped out of it?

Here's my friend's story.
I was an avid player of Red Dead Redemption when it first came out, and played it all the way until it got hacked. I met a lot of very very strange people on that game, but some great friends too who I've now met and keep in touch with. Basically, hell of a time playing multiplayer! One of my friends met a girl called Gina and started talking to her often. Apparantley Gina was a model....
My friend became suspicious when she sent a photo of herslef which was clearly cut out of a magazine as she poorly edited it and you could see the page line he confronted her and she later admitted to being a 20st girl from Yorkshire and asked if he would think any different of her. Umm...YES?! It's funny because she used to argue with me quite a lot and call me a fat hacker for being better than her. I later linked her my Facebook and she was like "well it can't be you..." even though all my family members are on there and it says "member since 2008" and I'm tagged by other people in most photos. Whatever. PSYCHOOOO.

I think a good way to avoid being catfished is to ask for a photo of them holding a piece of paper with some sort of sentence relevant to you. If they refuse, catfish!! Throw it back in the water for f*** sake!

No, but I know guys who have been. Some worse than others. One of my friends was duped for months (maybe a little over a year) to fallin' in love with some chick that ended up bein' a dude. Happens all the time.

I do the opposite, but I never go to far lengths like social media and shit. I just say I'm a dude and to get people off my back and I normally don't need any evidence for that argument.

Nope every time i have dated has been long distance through the internet and never once have i been catfished.

That being said i am very strict and want to hear the persons voice and see there face before i would even entertain the idea of dating them,.

Not really. Maybe because I don't really care for appearances very much.

Nice catch, both meanings applicable.

Never heard of the term "catfished' before, hasn't happened to me as I'm anti social in real life, games and the web it's just my nature. My friend though has been.
