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 =

1. A Conformist: someone who does what everyone else is doing b/c its "in", "trendy", or "cool" to do at the time.
2. Someone who puts themself under a certain label in order to be accepted by others who have conformed to that same label.

-It really doesn't matter what you wear or what you listen to in terms of music, as long as YOU YOURSELF truly like the music and the way you look.
-You won't be a poseur so long as you do what you like for YOURSELF, instead of doing things to be accepted by people who will find VERY little meaning in what individuality really means.
Punk, Goth, Emo, Hardcore, Gangster, Ghetto, Indie, MetalHead, etc.

Many (NOT all) white teens listen to rap music, not b/c they actually like it, but b/c its the "cool" thing to listen to, and if you listen to any genre of "Rock" music, you are looked down upon as an outcast and an "unnatural freak". But this ok, so long as you are true to yourself.

One who changes themself completely because they either want to fit in, or because they want to be "different" then everyone else which is just conforming.
When Summer started Sarah wanted to be preppy but by September she was wearing all black and called herself a punk. She is a total poseur.

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.

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.
That Spanish kid from class pretends to watch Inuyasha and Witch Hunter Robin so he can fit in with MY friends.

Some one who tries to be what they are not. And not matter how much some peeps want to deny it, you can be a poseur prep as well.

Also, in my opinion, you are a poseur if you won’t hang out or talk to someone because they don’t look/act like you. Yup, even if you know a lot about a certain group, you can be a poseur.

Just because you don’t remember a song title doesn’t mean you’re a poseur. I forget sometimes. And I admit it. But anyone can know the name of a song, but not know the music. It’s sad that I am considered a poseur because I don’t care about song names. And, you can like a song but not like a band. I like Girlfriend (by Avril Lavign) but I don’t like her.

Also, calling some one a poseur doesn’t make you a poseur. My dad calls people poseurs, especially when they try to be punk. (BTW peeps…punk isn’t about the way you dress…its about the music, it’s the way you think…its who you are.)

And why is it because you buy something that you don’t know how to use or w/e makes you a poseur? My friends bought himself a skate and then taught himself how to skate. Does that mean he’s a wannabe skater? No, it doesn’t. it means he wanted to learn to do something and he needed the skate to learn. Also, Myspace. Just because someone gets a myspace doesnt mean they are a poseur. Myspace is good for communication and helps keep you in contact with old friends.

wearing converse doesnt make me punk
wearing mini skirts doesnt make me a prep
wearing skinny jeans and bows doesnt make me scene
chains don't make me gansta
eyeliner doesnt make me goth
black doesnt make me emo
dance doesnt make me a jock or weak
crying doesnt mean i'm sad
liking disney doesnt make me immature
make-up and low cut shirts dont make me a slut
just because i dont like milk, eggs and cheese doesnt mean i'm vegan

but all those things together makes me me. so what if one day i wanna walk around in vans and jeans one day and heels and a dress the next. so what if i like to mix things up a little. and so what if i want to dance and wear tutu's. thats just how i roll. but it doesn't make me a poseur. yes you COULD call me punk. maybe even scene. but the truth is, i'm just being me.
