Fake dating show on mtv
Though I couldn't find any organized studies done on this topic ( I believe because of the newness of the issue), I did find some sites where teens openly admitted to creating fake accounts. they admitted to knowing it was wrong, but said they couldn't stop.It was as though these catfishing teens had an obsession with fictitious relationships and were engaging in a romantic type of SIMS game, only they were messing with real people, not SIMS.
In an effort to help explain several possible reasons to her, I began to wonder if this is a common situation?
Catfishing is so popular with predators that NBC even monopolized on the issue by creating the show “To Catch A Predator” with host Chris Hansen in which people created an online teen profile and lured older men into their homes with the hopes of a sexual encounter.
