Lmao! Your frustration with these people is palpable and it is hilarious lmao! But a lot of these people have low self-esteem and are terribly insecure about themselves, for one reason or another. For some, talking to someone online and getting that ATTENTION is the best that it is going to get for them, and they take it and run with it. There really is no point, because most of them have no intention of ever meeting their online counterpart, but it is a fix for the moment that makes them feel good about themselves.
I am hardly frustrated. I get that part of it, and I understand how for people most of us would consider having social issues of some kind, connecting online makes things easier. However, some people take it to the extreme going to elaborate means and trickery.
That is how your post came across. it seemed like you didn't get it, and so you were frustrated with their behavior. There is no argument that some people take it to the extreme, but they will do and say anything to hold onto who they are talking to online, hence the extreme measures of trickery and lies. It is all pretty simple stuff to work out, so I don't understand what you are finding difficult to understand.
Nothing you have said addresses my initial post. At no point did I say I did not understand them; at no point did I say I was frustrated. It's a TV show about people that have absolutely nothing to do with me.
Can you not read? Go back and rad your initial post, grumpy. You asked what was wrong with the people who Catfished other people. I simply answered that. How can you not understand these people's issues. They are presented to you every episode, so it is pretty simple to understand. You also asked how people have the time, and what the point of catfishing is. I answered that in my above posts. Go back and read, or learn to read and comprehend. It REALLY sin't that hard to grasp the answers top any of the questions that you posed, unless you simply do not want to get it or are terribly dense.
