What does "catfished" mean?

If someone says they got "catfished" ... what does that mean?

I've been seeing it and hearing it but don't know what folk are saying.

Thanks in advance.

Usually, it refers to when someone is going through on-line dating sites and the person they are talking to is not who they think they are. There is a whole show about it called "catfish."

After weeks, sometimes YEARS of only knowing each other on-line, they will meet and the other party is not who they say they are. People probably use fake photos all the time. Or Photoshop a ton.

It means people using fake pictures and identities online i.e. the model you see in the picture turns out to be a short, overweight person that drools.

A video that brings it home:



Can't Lie On The Internet





With the recent media surrounding Manti Te’o being catfished (fooled) by a man posing as a woman he virtually dated for over 2 years without ever meeting, along with the growing popularity of the movie turned Television show Catfish, we decided to divulge a few tricks of how to stalk research someone online using a few free tools and some creativity. So have you found your soul mate online? Let’s see if we can make sure they are who they say they are so you too can avoid being catfished.
