    I'm mates with a guy and we have a very banterous relationship, borderline savage. This could happen because neither of us take much to heart so we say it how it is. Recently we were all at a friends house and randomly out of nowhere he calls me a catfish infront of everyone, (he doesnt know im slighlty insecure about my looks because I have a skin condition). I didnt take it to heart but then the boy I was talking to who is his best friend randomly stopped talking to me. (I'm thinking he told his mate I'm a catfish). This has been playing on my mind a lot, since then I dont really want to hang out with the group and I've been down a lot because only I know how much I went through with my skin and to get it where it is now. I know I'm being a lil bish but what can I do to forget about it?

    I think he meant I look different in pictures than real life or something, but the way he said it was I look ugly in real life.

    I see. Then just stop hanging out with this guy and his friends. They sound toxic.

    It's not all of them, it's just him. Besides they're the only friends I have at uni.

    I hope you're doing well. I guess, I'll have to slowly leave.

    try going easy on the heavy makeup, myspace poses, instagram filters, cropped head shots ...and then you won't have that problem.

    simples.

    This is a real catfish

    Show all the group that video and laugh about that to bond with the group again.
    If that blokes friend thinks your a catfish he'll think twice when he watches that.
    You don't need to stop hanging out with the group because most people have a horrible time at uni because they have zero friends so they'd kill to have your group of friends so count yourself lucky.
    As for that boy you should stop bantering with him because one day you will both cross the line and say things that are hurtful then won't want to see each other anymore, just chat to him normally.
    Say hello to his friend and try small chat and if he's not friendly back ask him if anything is wrong

    This guy is an Idiot sending half his paycheck to a woman he's never met for 2 years and saving up for and wedding, lol
    I have no sympathy for anybody who's been catfished if they haven't met up with the person their speaking to after 1 or 2 months let alone 1 or 2 years
