There is a moment inside Catfish the documentary, Nev Schulman confronts the husband of the woman who catfished him, about his thoughts and feelings over the situation.
This husband; a fisherman then tells a story that helped coin the very term.
They carve out a reality they feel is more appealing.
It may include travel they never took to places they feel make them seem more intriguing.
I personally have been on and off the site for over 1 year and had at least 100 email messages a week, mostly LIARS, and FAKES!!!
So this guy came up with the idea that if you put these cods in these big vats, put some catfish in with them and the catfish will keep the cod agile.And there are those people who are catfish in life. They keep you guessing, they keep you thinking, they keep you fresh.And I thank god for the catfish because we would be droll, boring and dull if we didn’t have somebody nipping at our fin.” And ever since the term Catfish or Catfished, has become known as more than the bottom dwelling fish with whiskers.Also Thomas Gibson from Dharma & Gregg and Criminal Minds fame has fallen victim to a catfish hoax.There was a documentary turned MTV Show on the topic, and is largely credited for bringing it out of the closet.Here is something to ponder over instead of my boyfriend. I’m just scary and want to make your life some living hell.There are just too many other obvious examples to list here. Ever find yourself editing that new profile pic to look your very best? Who is going to throw the vacations shots up where the whole family hates each other, scowls on faces and can’t wait to get home?This one always ends badly, since this will be the one type you may eventually out.The attraction built up in your mind will be crushed instantly in that first real meeting.We have the person with an internet connection and way too much free time on their hands, simply looking to push themselves outside boredom.This will be the person who at the very least, does not purposefully target your life for retribution. This in stark contrast to the Secretly-in-love Catfish, that has some big crush on you and for whatever reason, real or imagined, does not find themselves good enough in real life.
