Manti Te'o was Catfished

If you think that I am talking about the bottom-dwelling fish then, you are wrong. "Catfished" is a colloquial word that became sensationalized in the Internet referring to the hoax love affair of Manti Te'o. The word means being tricked into or being deceived with romantic feelings.

Manti Teo is a linebacker at the University of Notre Dame and one of the most decorated collegiate football players of all time. The story about his dead girlfriend is all lies, complex and cruel.

This week, he tweeted this: "No one can make you feel inferior without your consent!" -Eleanor Roosevelt

I can only sigh. I believed in him when he said he is the victim. Bizarre as it may seem but, it is a reality and it could happen even to smart people. You may call him stupid, gullible, naive but, we all are when we are in-love.

How could you be in-love with someone you did not even meet in person? Good question but then again, we disregard all possible flag signs when our heart speaks because we are blinded with our strong feelings.

The hoax arises so many philosophical arguments and we all disagree with our reasons because our minds are fixed. It is hard to understand the many “why’s” about his catfished story but, for me he is the victim.
