Someone who tries very hard to be something they're not but never succeeds.

A poser trying to be a "goth" will wear jeans and a band t-shirt. The band being a band they've only heard one song by.

I used to be a poser, then I saw sense. I'm just myself now. My own Style. Simply just, me.

Lucy - "Umm... what songs you heard then?"

Sindy - "Can't remember the names! *awkward laugh*"

Lucy - "Yeah..."

But posers are often mistaked as actual goths by chavs (townies, scallies). But chavs are stupid and blind.

Poser; One who conforms to other people's ideas, has no original ideas, and tries to be someone they're not. They typically ditch their original group of friends to try and hang out with people that are "cool" in hopes of becoming popular. They will also go out and buy a mass order of "cool" clothes from Hot Topic or something.

Signs of a Poser - 1. The poser will start hanging out with people you would never expect. 2. They will change their style of clothes. e.g. They will wear tennis shorts but will soon be wearing skinny jeans and tight jackets. 3. Potential poser name: First name: Vance; Last name: La
Person 1: "Hey, you know Vance?"

Person 2: "Vance La?"

Person 1: "Yeah, him."

Person 2: "Yeah. He's such a poser. No one likes him."

A name given to a person based on his/her fashion sense or musical tastes by people who think that:

A. Just because someone is wearing clothes from Hot Topic it means that they're trying to be goth, or

B. Just because someone listens to The Ramones it means that they're trying to be punk.

There are some more examples, but these are some of the more common ones. Most people that call others posers are saying that these people are trying to be goths or punks. These people never consider that maybe, just maybe.. these guys simply like the clothes or music!

It has nothing to do with what they want to BE, but simply what they LIKE, so they go ahead and do it. It's like assuming that just because a white guy wants to rap, that he's automatically a wigger. Rap doesn't automatically mean you're gonna speak in ebonics and rap about bitches and hoes, or how "gangsta" you are. Only when that IS the case.. you can go and call him a wigger, but otherwise, no.

It's the same with these so-called "goths" and "punks". A stud-belt from Hot Topic doesn't mean that person slits his wrists and cries all day because his life sucks, nor does liking the band Green Day mean that person wants to rebel against society, get a mohawk, and tell everyone else to fuck off.

However.. the easiest way to tell a true poser from a non-poser would be that, if a poser actually gets called a poser, he/she'd overreact quite angrily and surprised.
Wigger: omg look at dat wannabe goth over der wit dose chain pants from Hot Topic lol ur such a goth poser

Non-Idiot: Umm.. no, actually I got these pants because I thought they look cool. Do you have a problem with that?

Wigger: Yea I do!! I'm an awesum rapper wit all mah hoes and rims, who says I'm from da street even tho I wuz raised in a 6-story mansion!!

Non-Idiot: Well in that case, go and tell someone to yell at you instead of coming here like an idiot and calling me a poser... you poser.

Wigger: omg stfu I fukkin hate u u wannabe goth bitch go slit ur wrists u fag

Non-Idiot: I've never slit my wrists in my whole life, moron.

One of the most overused words in the english language, especially by teens, and is probably one of the dumbest words as well. A poser is supposed to describe a person who pretends to be something they aren't and/or like something they don't. This word is too broadly used, and puts down people who want to try new things and want to get away from their past likings. I think it's a dumb word and the person who first used it should be punched in the family jewels.
idiot: Omg John is such a poser he wears Etnies and doesn't skate!!!
me: Why? because he likes their clothes?

idiot 2: Chris is a poser because he listens to punk but isn't really into punk
me: How do you think punk bands make money? from hardcore punks buying their CDs? They'd all go bankrupt in days if that was true, and punk music isn't just for a special group of people dumbass

correct person: Nicks a poser cause he

Virtually every kid in my school. They're almost all middle class, suburban white kids, who wear there pants to their ankles, and say they're "gangsta". 1, maybe 2 kids have any ties to gang activity. You ain't a gangsta, so pull your pants up!
poser gangsta: Wassup White boy?

Me:You're just as caucasian as me

him: ...

One who pretends to be a celebrity or other famous person on Myspace, Facebook, Youtube, or any other social networking site.

They get most of their information from Google, IMDB, interviews, and Popstar Magazine.

One of the lines some posers use is: "I don't care if you think I am a poser. Don't add's ur loss."
Caitlin: OMG! I just found Taylor Lautner's Myspace page! He commented on my default pic!

Ashley: That's not Taylor! That's probably some middle-school girl posing as Taylor!

Caitlin: I need more proof. This isn't just another poser, because how would someone who's not Taylor know that much stuff about himself?

Ashley: Popstar Mag my friend. That and IMDB.
