Word of the week: Catfish

This week's word is the noun


which, apart from a type of fish, is used to refer to someone who pretends to be someone they're not, generally using social networking sites to create false identities with the aim of pursuing online romances.

Example: I was really falling for that gorgeous guy on Facebook, but he turned out to be a catfish.
