Definition: People who are fake but pretend to be real.
This group of people are a special bunch of people and you tend to run into them normally at events, work, university, school basically any ‘social’ setting.
In my eyes, they rank above fake people, because they are especially good at what they do.
But they are very hard to spot as they show all the signs of a genuine person; such as kindness, smiling and general niceness, to put it simply. This is is the case, however, until someone with more ‘credentials’ walks by and their attention is swerved, then it’s almost as if you both hadn’t just had the realest ‘conversation’ and you no longer exist in their world.
I feel like these people exist more and more nowadays because social media is so prevalent in our lives.
Everyone wants to gain from people but at the same time, everyone wants to be ‘real’ and so, therefore, these people are torn between the two because they think you can’t be both. They think that if they were authentically themselves, they wouldn’t be able to get as far as they need to get in life, so they act fake but pretend to be real hence fakereal.
This to me is annoying as hell, because I find it so difficult to know who to trust and I automatically end up building a wall for everyone just to protect myself, which is no way to live.
I genuinely enjoy meeting new people, having new conversations, exploring new territories but not when it is under false pretences.
If you’re a nice person be nice to everyone.
If you’re a horrible person be horrible to everyone.
Not quite sure if this is a rant because I am not even mad about this (at the time of writing) but it’s just one of those things where I sat down and thought about it and came to the conclusion that it doesn’t have to be that way.
I am curious to know if I am the only one who has experiences like this, or if anyone has any advice for dealing with people who exhibit these tendencies. Leave your comments below.
Weird post from me I know but sometimes I have random thoughts that I feel like posting so yeah…
