    I don't think i would be able to bare the pain...messaging someone you think is a possible partner and they end up being someone else. How did you cope?
    How to cope?

    1 by realising that online relationships mean nothing till you've actually physically met and spent time with the person.

    2 by realising that even if the person is not catfishing, that you are only getting a highly filtered version of the person. That people's self-image may be very different to what they actually are.

    3 Profile photos. You will almost never been able to recognise anyone the first time you meet them from their profile photos. The only way you'll known it is them will be by meeting at a highly specific location - like within 2 metres. Assuming you're sensible and arrange to meet at a busy public location.

    4 Not taking your life too seriously. Laugh at set-backs like being catfished.

    5 Treating online dating like the sales game that it is. In this case you're selling yourself as a boyfriend / girlfriend / husband / wife. In most sales jobs you get more failures than successes. But it's the successes that make it all worthwhile.

    It never happened to me but I knew a girl who was being catfished by three girls in school on BBM. They would take turns to message her it was soo wrong. The crazy thing is that before I knew, I told the girl that she shouldn’t trust who she meets online because they could be a catfish. She didn’t listen

    I've catfished multiple times before [for research purposes]

    I really do recommend it, As a guy you'll find much more truthful answers to questions than asking girls on TSR about it [where you often get feel good, PC ..fairytale answers]

    Anyways, I wasn't a malicious catfish, I never lead anyone on or even talked to them for more than one day. tbh 99% of the messages I got I ignored

    I did also catfish my friends date once [in person] with his permission, ..that was jokes lol

    Omg that was a great episode, the guy thought it was just Katy Perry playing a joke on him and pretending she was a catfish :toofunny:

    They’re in the works of making a UK version of the show, but it won’t be Nev and Max so there’s no point.

    Nope! That's why I watch the tv show lol when it comes to online dating, you must must just speak on the phone, know it's the person, video chat and what not

    That TV show interested me but i watched this film trailer. Why would u even catfish...the trailer makes me feel so many emotions
    Confused why any person would do it, so so sad for the guy
