Are You Being Catfished?



Online dating is an integral part of almost every gay millenial’s life. When you’re 15 years old, alone in a small town, exploring your sexuality, and surrounded by heterosexuals, where can you turn once you’re bored with the Gay and Lesbian section at Barnes and Noble if you’re lucky enough to have one? 5 years ago you may have turned to or Craigslist. In 2013 we thankfully have more options. Besides the ubiquitous Manhunt and Adam4Adam, there’s Grindr, Jack’d, OKCupid, and even social networks like Twitter, Tumblr, and Instagram where circles of gays from across the country can come together and realize they’re not alone.

But for every real online profile, there’s a fake online profile. For every adroable guy who possibly likes your Instagram picture, there’s a fake hot skater boy with hot abs and a big dick who goes to college in Arizona and you’ll never meet in real life. So before you send him incriminating pictures of videos, check out these 19 signs that you may be getting catfished.
