Why some guys pretend to be lesbians online

A+ A-

Too often I start talking to ' supposedly a lesbian or bisexual' girl online just to discover that it's a guy with a fake profile . I am usually very cautious when it comes to online dating and whenever I ask the person I am talking to verify their identity I discover that they are just guys who are trying to catfish other girls . It's really disgusting and common just wondering what are their motive is this a kind of homophobia or they are trying to convert us to be straight again.

    That is so frustrating! Who knows what they're trying to do, maybe they're just fetishizing queer women. It's always best to be cautious and it sounds like you are. If nothing else, it's a huge waste of time.

    Sorry about your unfortunate experience with boys and online dating. Online dating is a huge opportunity for people like myself! It's easier to find common interests and goals before even talking, so you'll know if that person shares similar qualities and therefore higher chance of becoming a friend or possibly advance into a relationship. Don't give up on it. It can be worth it. Like any thing, there's a risk of some thing going wrong :/ Like MT said though, it's best to be cautious.

      The fact you see straight men this way disgusts me. Although im a gay.. but you putting it this way, i find it very offensive. Please dont categorize men in this just because of your own bad experience. Some of us have good intents.

      Ive never met any of these, and I doubt they exist in this community.

      Im not judging your perspective. Ive been around for quite a while and have many lesbian friends from Ahwaa. Im not only talking about my own experience, but also theirs rarely included any sort of deceit carried out by this platform. It happens though in other networks as sometimes low lifer males pretend to be lesbians just to catfish them.

    Don't know what attracts guys to Les and gay sites ...good thing is I spot men who pretend to be lesbian's very quick and I think they should be exposed here to make others aware and be on the lookout

      Sadly though this can be easily exploited for shaming and personal problems. I cant believe someone is desperate enough to go this far. Like wow.

      Like who the fuck has the time and energy to fake his gender/sexuality just to fuck around barren results.

    Some guys don't take the whole gay women thing seriously ,like it's just a phase ,others don't have much of a real life sexual opportunity with women upon low self esteem or lack of confidence ,hence opting to impersonate gay girls online ,attempting at a sexual convo /sexting /nudes and this kind of crap...it happens all the time ,eventually u will know it's a guy,wish they just stop pulling this kind of trick at gay girls
