1) N. One who attempts to acheive a status, look or appeal which they do not have the traits to posess. Also could be someone posing as something that they are not, for reasons known or unknown.

2)High-school label. Used as a degrading term toward the sort of people who wear pyramid belts etc. but giggle a lot. However, the label is equally immature.

3)The word that the misspelling "poser" came from, the reason for which being undecided but either
a) George Bush didn't like the fact that "poseur" sounded French, or
b) some moron couldn't spell and it spread.
Sorry, I can't think of an example but you all know what I mean. If you don't, please just look at other examples.

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 =

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.

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.

basically someone who pretends to be something just because it's 'in' or 'trendy'. but it is NOT someone who changes their look every so often because the are experimenting and going through that thing called 'self discovery' or 'adolescence'. how to recognize a poseur/poser: if they call you or anybody else one. how to avoid it: just be yourself. don't fit into the stereotype of whatever.
do i really need one?

1) him: ha! look at that poser! that band is a poserband! (thinking: take down that band poster and destroy my cds).
her: *flippy finger*

2) the real poseur/poser: wasn't he punk last year? what a poseur/poser.
