I have a good definiton for poser. My cousin. She is very cool, but is a pretty big poser. SHe recently started liking rock. Her favorite bands are Green Day, Panic! at the Disco, AFI, Simple Plan, My Chemical Romance...and thats pretty much it. I asked her if she knew "Death Cab for Cutie" "Blink 182" and even the old songs of Green Day...and she had NO IDEA. SHe painted her nails black, borrows her sisters black shirts(which says 'baby phat' on them, but as long as they are black, she doesnt care), and started to hate pink. Well, I like rock and metal, but I dont dress all in black. Her myspace is sooo emo and she tries to hit on emo kids. Her sisters call her goth, but she denies it. WHAT GIVES?! I mean, she doesnt even know what Oldies are!!!! She has no idea who Korn or Slipknot is. She shoudl just give up.
Angela*: omg rock is the best!

me: have you heard "all the small things."? its REALLY CATCHY!

Angela*: what is that? a new radio station.

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.
