In your opinion, what is a poser?

I hear that word thrown around loosely nowadays, referring to anyone from Avril Lavigne, to many different alternative bands, to people that shop at Hot Topic, etc. So I want to know your opinion, what is a poser?

To me, a poser is someone that tries too hard to be a certain image, someone who tries too hard to fit into a certain stereotype, thinking that this will make them cooler and more accepted.

    i agree with your definition of a poser.

    there are A LOT of posers at the Beauty & Style > Other - Beauty & Style.

    i've seen a lot of girls post up pictures of themselves and actually ASKED what stereotype they looked like, and how they could make themselves look more 'scene', or 'emo'.

    to me, THAT'S being a poser.

    i think of a poser is somebody who does some thing somebody else invented. It does not incorporate activities. An occasion would be that guy who did triller after Michael Jackson died. he's a poser.

  • Yeah people who try hard to act/dress a certain way as if it's cool. Be comfortable in your own skin and stop trying to impress everyone. Like if you don't dress a certain way your not cool. I wear what i want and thats that. :]

    It's short for impostor, someone who pretends just to fit in, but not true to themselves.
