one trying to be what one does not know anything about. emos are commonly called posers. nobody says anything about the random dorks who buy purses from american eagle its always the kids that try to fit in with a group that is frowned down upon that get called posters. Posers try hard to be something so that they will be excepted i have a certain amount of sympathy for such people and yet they still piss me off. posers are also known as nobodys, wanna be's, never has beens, clueless, shameful, and or misserably lost
example:Jess is such a "POSER",yesterday she was wearing faded blue jeans and a babyblue t-shirt, today she is wearing tripp pants and a my chemical romance t-shirt, she has a thick layer of eye liner under her eyes, i wonder what she's trying to prove,what a "poser "
