    Search for the thread titled "Expose the Catfish" and you'll most likely find your answer. :wink:

    Weren’t we just talking about his guy!

    Ha, what’d I tell you? He’s everywhere. :joy:

    It's not beyond the realms of possibility. Years ago there was a guy on here that used provocative pictures of his wife to catfish guys.

    How do people have time or energy to make multiple fake profiles?

    Pretty sad, isn't it? Imagine how nice it would be to live in a world where people used that extra time and energy to do good things instead.

    Are you a catfish? That's an awfully big banana you are holding... maybe too big.

    Yes. Yes, I am

    I think I just found Kevin.

    I have nothing to add of any value other than how much I love that Minor Threat album. Pretty sure if you liked punk/hardcore in the 80's you were obligated to own that tape.

    I have 6 friend requests waiting. The last one, in the comment section, the guy says "Nice hair!". I almost want to accept it just for that, but I think I'll pass...lol. I declined 21 the other day. You can't tell who is real and who isn't.

    What is the point in Catfishing? Developing a relationship with a person you can never meet?

    I think their hope is that the other person will begin to care enough for them that the fact that they lied, betrayed and manipulated them won’t matter.

    Aren't those the same reasons people break up? I'm so glad there was no Internet when I started dating.

    One of my favorite days in life was when I met Ian MacKaye after a Fugazi show.

    I had a few guys message me and one was from Utah and very intense, I said I was married and happy to just be friends. It all creeped me out so much I deleted everyone. I watch that catfish show all the time and find it hard to trust people online, and I don’t see a point in people trying to catch feels with people they will probably never meet seeing as we are all from around the world 😕
