I was walking through Borders the other day and I heard this Poseur talking about how he/she loves emo and listens to Miss. A. Lavigne all the time.

poseurname
the overly insecure bastard who belongs nowhere. they just dont understand that labels and stereotypes dont exist. they just happen naturally. poseurs may dress and spend a million dollars on clothes to make them the person they want to be, but any real person can automatically pick them up from a group of kids, they think they belong to. many preppies become poseurs as they try oh so hard to be in style. listen up my dears, who cares about the word "trend?" we can stress this on and on, but poseurs will never understand that being themselves would be much beter off for them rather than changing their clothes/music taste/dialogue to be something thats "in."

think about it this way, being a poseur, evryone in the so-called "label" that ur trying to be in hates you, ur most likely not really enjoying being who ur trying to be unless u hav so much experience as a poseur u might as well jump off a cliff 5 million times and never get rid of ur deadly disease, and u probably hav no true friends. trust me, just be you. dont giv others and yourself a bad name.
a poseur = a prep
one week, ur so "G"
second week, ur "emo" and hate ghetto shit
third week, ur a "metalhead" and ur saying "screw those emo whiney kids"
fourth week, u find urself in abercrombie and fitch, "like omg yea i mean they hav like the most trendiest in-style clothes"
fifth week, u knock down one garbage can cuz u think its hardcore so now ur "punk" "its anticormbie and bitch, fucken preps"
sixth week, well if ur gonna keep changing urself, u might as well suicide, hey u WERE once emo =

Someone who pretends to be something they're not and like things that they don't. Also anyone calling someone else a poseur, while being one.

Also, poseurs tend to forget that you don't have to be identical to be friends.

Poseurname
A person who tries to act like something to be cool. One who says they are one thing, usually goth/emo/gangsta/Hardcore etc. when they obviously aren't.Poseurs don't realize that they are being poseur half the time, which makes it worse. Oh, and skaters. Skaters, Goths, and Gangsta seem to be the most prevelent groups to have poseurs.
Yes, it is Poseur. Read the top rated post, it's explains it all.

A poseur is someone who dresses untrendy, because they think it's the lastest trend. Poseurs don't really like they style they imitate; they just dress that way to be cool, popular, or just so people will like them. They are fake, pathetic people.
me: I was uncool before uncool was cool.
poseur: I'm uncool because uncool is cool.
