What Does Being ‘Catfished’ Mean?

Chances are you have been hearing the word “Catfish” lately. Recently, Notre Dame’s  Manti Te’o has been in the news for being a catfish victim. I won’t get into his story but let’s talk about what being catfished means…

A catfish is someone who pretends to be someone else through some type of Social Media. This person completely assumes a fake identity and goes the extra mile to make their victim believe that they are exactly who they say they are. MTV has recently premiered a show titled MTV Catfish, helping victims catch their catfish in devastating lies.

Catfish victims usually end up falling in love with a person that does not exist. For example, a woman may think she is in love with a male model type and in actuality it is a teenage girl behind that computer screen. Have you or anyone you know been catfished?
