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.

One who pretends to be a celebrity or other famous person on Myspace, Facebook, Youtube, or any other social networking site.

They get most of their information from Google, IMDB, interviews, and Popstar Magazine.

One of the lines some posers use is: "I don't care if you think I am a poser. Don't add me...it's ur loss."
Caitlin: OMG! I just found Taylor Lautner's Myspace page! He commented on my default pic!

Ashley: That's not Taylor! That's probably some middle-school girl posing as Taylor!

Caitlin: I need more proof. This isn't just another poser, because how would someone who's not Taylor know that much stuff about himself?

Ashley: Popstar Mag my friend. That and IMDB.

a person who likes something just because they have heard that someone else likes them. someone who wouldn't understand the meaning behind the lyrics or the thoughts and feelings. someone who says they are when they aren't and are so obviously following along. someone who is so fake it's sickening.
person1: so i'm gonna go buy this AFI cd.
person2: what's AFI?
person1: just this band i like.
person2: what does it stand for?

a week later, (after seeing picture of AFI)
person2: eww, they're so scary looking

a week later after that,
person2: yea!, soo i really like miss murder.
(sings *kiss my eyes and lay me to sleep* in squeaky voice.)
person1: uhmmm..

in other words, posers are people who take the meaning out of something beautiful by twisting it around and turning it into something strange in their little podpeople heads.

not that AFI would ever be ruined.

Pople need to get over the fact that there is no such thing as a poser! A person should be able to do whatever they want without being labelled as a poser.
Random 1: He's such a poser, he's with the skaters but doesn't even have a skateboard!
Random 2: Maybe he just wants to hang out with them...!

Someone who says they really like something when either
1: The barely know anything about it
2: They're only saying that to fit in

Posers usually all dress the same and think they're totally hardcore when really, they suck. Poser is becoming the new term for conformist, because most posers are only doing the annoying things they do to fit in.
EXAMPLE 1:
Poser: OMG I love Green Day!
Punk: What's your favorite album?
Poser: American Idiot.
Punk: Ha! Typical poser. I like Insomniac.
Poser: Wha? Is that a second name for one of their songs?
Punk: No, it's an album!
Poser: They have more albums???

EXAMPLE 2:
Poser: I have a girlfriend. *note: poser is a girl*
Non-Poser: So you're lez or bi or something?
Poser: No, I'm just expreimenting. That's okay in highschool.
Non-Poser: So you aren't attracted to girls but you're dating one?
Poser: Yeah, I love her. She's HOTT.
Non-Poser: You can't say that if you're not attracted to girls. It's faking it. You're a stupid poser. That's sick, it's not just a brand of clothes or something, you're probably breaking your "girlfriend's" heart, because you aren't really attracted to her. Get a boyfriend instead, or be single you fuckhead!
*note: I actually had that conversation with a stupid poser. Most of the posers I know pretend to be bi, and then they use the word "gay" as an antagonistic phrase.*

EXAMPLE 3:
Poser: I love My Chemical Romance!
Non-Poser: What's your favorite song?
Poser: Welcome to the Black Parade!
Non-Poser: Do you own any of the albums?
Poser: No, I just saw the video on TV! It was so cool... I love MCR <3333
Non-Poser: Have you ever heard "Cemetery Drive"?
Poser: No, I just heard them for the first time! My mom just bought me a MCR shirt!

a person who trys to portray an image that has nothing to do with their own life style or way of thinking but rather forced to fit in with a cirtain group that they feel is "cool"
she was trying to impress the goths by wearing black, and saying she listened to metal despite the fact that she liked new age punk because she wanted to be one of them.
