TikToker warns against toxic friends with story about 'sociopath' catfish: 'My jaw dropped'
This TikTok story has it all: getting up at a wedding, a surprise pregnancy, and a catfish fall that would even stun Nev Schulman.
Kaelyn Nirmaier shared the story on TikTok as part of the #putafingerdown trend, a derivative of the game "Never Have I Ever", in which people take turns sharing personal experiences they have never had and others put a finger down, when they did it. However, in the TikTok trend, it's usually used as a creative storytelling method.

Nirmaier's story is definitely unique. It starts seemingly normal enough with, "Put a finger down if your boyfriend is getting married and you don't know anyone at the wedding."

Nirmaier then goes into how her future girlfriend shared a phone number of another single man, Tyler, who would also be attending the wedding so that Nirmaier would have someone to talk to. The couple texted and got closer for months, but then Tyler didn't show up for the wedding.
"That's okay, you are still friends, you will still talk to him," Nirmaier continued. "A few more months will pass and he will have a friend named Lexi whom he will eventually finish."
As Nirmaier and Tyler got closer, Nirmaier became more aware of Tyler's deteriorating mental health, which he claimed was caused by Lexi, whom he called "crazy."

"[Lexi] begins to make his life hell," says Nirmaier in the clip. "They say he has to leave Lexi for his general health and well being, but he decides the best course of action is to commit suicide."
Nirmaier stated that she felt guilty for years about what happened to Tyler. But then "about 10 years later you realize that no one in history has ever been real."
That's right - Tyler and Lexi were completely made up.
"You were fished by your married friend," Nirmaier concluded, putting a finger down.
"When I tell you my jaw has fallen," someone commented.
"I think your friend is a sociopath," added another.
"This is like an entire Netflix series on a TikTok," said one commentator.
Catfishing - which uses false information to create a fake person, usually online - is quite common in online dating, but anyone can be a victim of it. There isn't much information currently available on why people are attracted to cat fishing other than the fact that they are usually unsafe or trying to find an escape.
According to a survey, catfish fishermen also tend to feel a “high” when successfully deceiving people, which can make it difficult to stop.
