"Catfish" is the ultimate "edge of your seat" show. For the entire episode runtime, you get so emotionally invested in whether or not these people are real. If they're not real, why did they do it? If they are real, what are they hiding?

This show is certainly an emotional rollercoaster, and there are some things that every "Catfish" fan out there thinks while watching the show.

1. You're telling me that you've been talking for FIVE YEARS and never saw this person on video chat?

Girl, I know he has an iPhone because those look like IMessages on your phone. If he has an iPhone, he has this thing called FACETIME!

2. Wait, you've only ever seen ONE photo of this person?

Oh, and look at that, the one photo you have is professional quality too.

3. Sorry, honey, but if the guy you are talking to actually looked like that he would not be "too shy" to video chat with you.

Get. It. Together. People.

4. Oh, great, you've texted this "person" at five different numbers in the last year.

Because I definitely switch my number ever two months. (Plot twist: I've had the same number since I was in sixth grade.)

5. He's a model? Oh, cool, so is every other Catfish out there.

I'm going to let you down easy on this one: He's not a model.

6. Nev, Nev, don't you go into that shady looking house. We don't really know who lives there.

OK, just kidding, you're going in there anyway.

7. Uh-uh, you did NOT just try and catfish "Catfish."

This only happened a few times in the show's history so far, but when it did, let me tell you I WAS SHOCKED.

8. If you wanted to talk to your ex, here's a crazy idea, talk to them as, oh, I don't know...you!

This one gets me every time. Do you really think these people aren't going to want to meet eventually?

9. What pleasure do you get out of torturing these people you don't know online? They're just trying to find love, man.

OK, admittedly, I would never turn to the internet to find love, but I also feel bad for the people who are so emotionally invested in these online relationships just to have their heart pulled out and stomped on in a matter of seconds.

10. My heart is pounding right now. I'm nervous for you.

Every. Time. Are they real? Are they not?

11. Did you just laugh? What part of this is funny to you?

I can't stand catfishing at all, but it's even worse when the people do it as a game instead of a wall for an insecurity of some sort.

12. If he lives two miles from you, why don't you just walk there?

If he won't reveal himself, but he claims to live two miles from you, I don't think you need to wait for Nev and Max to show up to get the truth.

13. Oh, he just so happened to move 1,000 miles away right when you started talking? How cute.

Those job transfers just happen at the funniest of times!

14. Wait, so you're telling me this is your best friend's ex-boyfriend's cousin?

Wow, glad we got that one cleared up.

15. I wonder where Max gets those cute little hand cameras?

Other than who this person is talking to, this is another constant question of the series.

16. This catfish has the same name as this one person from my high school, I wonder if it's them?

I'm still waiting for the time I see someone I know on this series.

17. Some of these people move on fast.

In the one to two-month post-filming check-ins, they show at the end of each episode, some of these people who were catfished are already in new relationships! I mean, hey, at least they're in-person this time.

18. Why does every catfish live in the shadiest neighborhood?

This is certainly not the mansion you talked about now is it buddy?

19. Who is this person answering the door? Are you "Mark?"

This is the biggest piece of anticipation every time.

20. Wait, why is a group coming out of the house?

In some cases, there have been groups of people catfishing someone. These get really weird.

21. Wait, I'm sorry, so your idea of "fun" is messing with someone?

Get a normal pastime, like basketball or bowling or something.

22. Yeah, that's right! Nev and Max totally got you!

The online search is honestly the best part. It's so thrilling to watch them figure out who it is.

23. You're actually real?

Every sign pointed to you being fake, but, hey, guess not!

To The Girl ‘Falls In Love Too Fast,’ Nothing Is Wrong With You, You Just Know What You Want

If it were as easy for everyone else, life would be a little less unfair.

You meet someone, and suddenly you fall in love, and they are the one. You have felt this way many times, about many different people, and you will never understand why. You will never know why you imagine a life together in your head when you have only known each other for a couple of weeks and have been on maybe four dates. It is hard because you've heard too many people make fun of those women, the ones that fall in love too fast. People say that they are easy, that they are crazy, that they do not know what love is.

But you know what love is, right? Just because you fall faster than most doesn't mean you are weird, right? It has never been explained to you, and it definitely should have been, but what you need to know is that you are not alone.

There are other women on this earth—heck, there are millions of women on this earth—that feel emotions as strongly as you do.

Once you feel a connection, you run with it; you grab onto it with both hands, and you don't let it go because how can you let a good thing like that slip through your fingers? Why would you pass up any chance to find love?

You are the girl who gets too attached, you are the girl who falls too quickly, you are the girl who loves too hard, and it is bizarre. Not to you, of course, never to you, this is how you have always been.

But to others…

You see the way they look at you, and you know better than to say the L word sooner than is socially acceptable because you have learned. It does not matter how strongly you might feel it, you know what people will say.

It has ruined you because, according to the world, there is a time limit on love.

They treat love as if it is a grenade; if it is handled wrong, it can blow up in your face, if it is set off too quickly, it will never be effective.

They think love is a war and dating is the battlefield, and you are their enemy. As if love is something to be measured in time and in victories.

You know better.

You have learned that who you make people uncomfortable, and you have taught yourself to hide this basic, primal, essential part of you, and that isn't fair at all.

But love for you is easy, and maybe if it were as easy for everyone else, life would be a little less unfair.

7 Autumn Things You Should Do Before Cuffing Season, Whether You're Cuffed Or Not

News flash: You don't need to have a boyfriend to go hard at the pumpkin patch.

Welcome to the best part of the year! From now until the end of December, may all your days be filled with pumpkin patches, haunted houses, Christmas lights and festive movies.

If you know me at all, you know I go hard during the holidays. The thing I never understand is when people think they can't do cute, fun fall things because they're not in a relationship. Whoever came up with that mentality, you're canceled.

Life is way too short. Are you really going to miss out on doing fun things because you don't have a boyfriend or girlfriend to do them with? No.

Here are some cute and fun fall things you should do this year, whether you're single or in a relationship:

1. Go to the pumpkin patch

Grab some girlfriends, go to a pumpkin patch and take cute pictures. You don't need a boyfriend to take pictures with. Girls know how to pose better anyway, and they won't complain about how many pictures you want to take.

Keep that Instagram aesthetic up, baby.

2. Paint pumpkins

After you come home from the pumpkin patch, grab your friends or younger siblings and paint those pumpkins! It's way less messy than carving, and it's easier. Plus, there are a lot of opportunities to get creative.

They also last longer without rotting that way.

3. Three words: Target's dollar section

If you've never been to the Target dollar section, it is the closest you'll get to heaven before dying. It's the fastest — and cheapest — way to decorate your house or dorm for any holiday. Grab your roommates and ball out. #spookyszn.

4. Watch childhood Halloween movies

I'm talking "Halloweentown," "Twitches," "Hocus Pocus" — all the good stuff. While you're watching, make sure to make those cookies with the pumpkins and ghosts on them. (You know the ones I'm talking about.)

5. Bake with your family

If you go home for Thanksgiving, really cherish that time with them. They miss you! Make old family recipes and listen to their childhood stories.

6. Sweater shopping

Did I feel it drop below 80 degrees? Bust out the sweaters.

We love good fall fashion. And if you go sweater shopping with your friends, you won't even have to convince them to tag along. Break the bank and pick out some cozy sweaters for each other.

7. Go to a haunted house

You're really going to tell me that you're not going to go to a haunted house because you don't have a boy's hand to hold?

Not only do your friends have hands, but so do you. Hold each other's hands and embrace the high-pitched screams. Go through that haunted house like a champ! (Or, if you're really too scared, dress like a boy. They'll scare you less.)

All jokes aside, whether you're single or in a relationship, that's good for you. Just don't let these times pass you by. You won't get these days back.

It's the best time of the year, so enjoy it with the people around you!
