Just having a conversation with this amazing guy I met on Instagram
Oh hey Kat! What's up?
That's so cool! What's his name?
Ok don't laugh but his name is Zac Efron.
Oh no Kat! You're being catfished.
Oh my gosh! I am. How could I possibly fall for this?
Don't worry Kat it's very common and I have some ways you can learn how to prevent it for the next time
Being cautious, ask questions, talk to someone, never give money or your personal information (i.e address, credit card number, phone number, etc.), and you can adjust your privacy
Thanks for that information Jess! I have a question though, why do people catfish in the first place?
Well Kat, here are many reasons for catfishing but some include insecurities, mental illness, revenge, harassment, exploring their sexual preferences.
Hmm, I guess that makes sense, but still doesn't make it right.
One last question, how do I know if i'm being catfished again?
The relationship progresses quickly, they never want to show their face, social media use is sparse, they ask for money, they seem too good to be true, their “job” sends them around the world, proper grammar is lacking, they have elaborate stories.
