someone who does something to appear cool or fit in, normally into some sort of clique
poser: hmmm i want to be different and unique... how can i do that... i kno i'll turn goth/skater/emo (etc)
next day...
poser is wearing all black/skate brands(eg vans as they are most popular in "fashion")
poser copies what other peopl are wearing and doing, may brag about how depressed they are. also calls themselves what they think they aparantly are and hang out with the people who that think are goth/skater/emo, then stops hanging around with old friends as they are not in the same "clique" they are
months later...
relises that clique is not "in" or cool anymore
example - poser: hmm..."goth" isnt cool anymore...i know i'll go emo!
next day completly changes clothes, puts on a fake personality to fit their new found clique they can copy
may start saying say things like:
'why have you done up your laces, i know no one who ties them up. they just tuck them in their shoe' (they, themselves have just left them dangling out to look "cool". then they fall over and smak their face on the ground haha stupid poser!!!)
if they think theyre skater they may wear converses although theyre the worst shoe to skate in and ive seen little girls who like pink to fat old men with no hair wear them so i have no idea how they became "skater"
Poser: hmmm... skater is cool right now..(dresses all in skate rand clothes etc) yeah! now im skater
but when they actually try skateboarding... they give up after 3 days because they dont like it, but still go around telling people they skateboard so theyll be popular.

Any one who does not follow his/her own ideas of what he/she likes. Following no one set norm makes you real and following no one set norm makes you poser. Poser is governed not by the clothes, music, or makeup you wear, but rather by the state of your mind and the conformity to your own beliefs.
Posers conform to the beliefs of others.

A person who attempts to blend into a specific social group.
Justin was such a poser-goth; sure, he comes to school in all black, but he doesn't even know who Edgar Allen Poe is.

a person - usually in middle or high school, who is insecure about him/herself and trys very hard not to be a "conformist" or a "prep," by doing things like: purchasing a skateboard or guitar, purchasing a great deal of clothing and accessories from hot topic, and listening to pop-punk bands such as simple plan, yellowcard, etc. usually, this supposedly "nonconformist" behavior just backfires on him/her, because now he/she is still conforming, just to a different group of people. so the moral of the story is to be yourself.
some people are posers.

A poser is someone who tries hard to be something they arent. Usually, posers call other people posers because they are jealous that the person they called a poser is more skater/stoner/goth/punk/rocker/grunge/etc. than they will ever be.
