She is quite possibly struggling with real emotional issues but do not underestimate how catfish can drag you onto wild emotional rollercoasters for the attention and sense of control it gives them.

Nobody actually knows how many fake profiles exist on LinkedIn, of course, because no one at LinkedIn would ever admit it. Catfishes tell outrageous lies which are often a dead give-a-way.
I have been feeling much better past 2 days, caught up with the youtube subcriptions that i haven't been going so, went to the gym and set a new bench record for myself, read online a lot, went out to watch people rock climb. Doing it will only make me more drained and unmotivated and serve no purpose other than finding out truths that i already know, or things that will hurt me more unnecessarily.

The roller coaster ride created a sense of false intimacy. Only having revealing photos is also another one again, attention seeking behaviour that girls don't need to attract And on PoF I've noticed fake profiles have an underscore in the middle of their profile name followed by jumbled letters in upper and lower case that make no sense. Discriminitory or offensive comments related to race, religion, gender, etc. It's as if they're always some extreme persona or character. I took the bait then because she was convincing me that a picture snap is just as legit as a video snap.

They use it against you to manipulate you into believing they really care for you to get out of you what they want. I'd even pretend to be a lesbian girl to get nudes from girls. This is one of the biggest red flags that you may be dealing with a catfish. Snapchat is a good way to tell if someone is being honest as well, if they're insecure.
