"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!

Before You Double Text Read These 10 Reasons On Why He Hasn't Responded To Your Text

If he has left your last message on 'Read' or 'Delivered' here is why.

It's all fun and games until your newest boo doesn't text you back. You're panicking wonder if you did something or how busy are they to not have responded to you. It's a shot to your pride when you are contemplating sending a double text, so you type a message and delete it, just to repeat the same process over.

1. He is overwhelmed with school

School can be very stressful at times, and everyone processes that stress differently. He may be able to give you the attention you desire because his proprieties lie with his academics.

2. He is not interested and doesn’t know how to tell you

Communicating is important, but not all guys know how to. He does not want to hurt your feelings, so instead of telling you straight up he is not interested, he just doesn't give you any more of a reason to be interested in him.

3. Your last message was not response worthy

Whether it was a bad joke or a dying conversation, he did not feel the need to respond. He did not feel like the conversation was worth continuing or that he could bring anymore excitement to it.

4. You are making assumptions about him

Don't make assumptions about a guy and push those assumptions upon him. If you want to grow with him, you can't believe everything you hear. Guys find it disrespectful when you take false information and try to use it against them.

5. He is busy

If he is apart of athletics, has a job or takes part in any extracurricular activities his amount of free time is very minimal. Scrolling through twitter feed or Instagram is a force of habit, but texting takes a little more energy he is not willing to use.

6. He is napping

Boys sleep. A lot. They stay up all night playing video games and get exhausted during the day. His phone is probably on Do Not Disturb while he takes a three hour nap, just to wake up and forget to take his phone off Do Not Disturb.

7. He has heard rumors

You have potentially done something in your past that he is not fond of and he would rather not continue talking to you. Whatever has been said, he believes it and does not see a point in continuing something with you.

8. Someone else is occupying his time

No girl wants to deal with the thought of her guy dealing with another woman, but there is always a chance. He may not be giving you attention because his attention is with another a girl. He trying to play both sides of the fence but cannot equally give you you both all his time. You just so happen to be the girl that receives the lesser of his time.

9. Playing video games

You know it. I know it. We all know it. Guys are addicted to the controller. Whether it be Fortnite or 2K, they are always some how online gaming. They game for hours and do not want to take a break to text you back.

10. He forgot

Boring, but true. Once he forgets to reply he probably won't reply period. Once forgotten, they typically feel like there is no point and it is just too late to say something back. If you see him in person, don't take it personal, make a funny joke out of it and forget it ever happened.

Now you no longer have to wonder why he hasn't texted you back. There are so many reasons why guys don't respond or even text back hours later. You have to decide whether it is because of his schedule or if he is up to no good.

9 Perfect Reactions To The Invasive Questions Every Woman's Family Asks During The Holidays

I'd rather talk about the weather.

Going home for the holidays can be the highlight of the season. Free food and socializing with your family can be a stress relieving experience.

Everyone wants to catch up on how you're doing and how college is going.

Unfortunately, after your 21st birthday, people start asking about "milestones" in your life. People want to know when you're getting married and having kids.

These questions are especially invasive for women who do not plan to get married or have children. If you are asked one of these nine questions, here are the perfect reactions to them.

1. "Are you seeing anyone new?"

Trust me, if I was seeing someone new, then you would have heard about it. I would have run into this house and told everyone about my new bae. Since that did not happen, you should assume I'm very single. Find me a full-time college student with a job that has time to look for a partner.

2. "Are you still seeing [insert name of ex-partner]?"

Nope, I'm not. Did you notice that I didn't mention their name in the last 20-minute conversion that we've had? Or that they're not here meeting the family. Just assume that they're canceled and never going to be spoken about again.

3. "Have you lost weight? It will help you find a boyfriend."

Do not ask about my weight when we're about to sit down to a 2,000 calorie meal. Have you lost weight? That's what I'd like to know.

4. "When can we meet your partner?"

Considering that they're not currently here with us, the answer is no. It's too soon and I'm not ready for them to meet my crazy family. Remember, I want him to like me.

5. "Are you planning on getting married?"

Do you see a ring on my finger? That's how you'll know I'm getting married. Turn your Facebook notifications on and you'll be very up-to-date on the state of our marriage.

6. "Do you want to have a big wedding?"

0/10 do I want to have a big wedding. Just for asking, you are not invited.

7. "How many kids do you want to have?"

Stop. Asking. Women. About. Having. Kids. There are many women who do not want children or cannot have children. If I didn't bring it up keep your thoughts to yourself or ask someone else.

8. "Do you want to be a stay-at-home mom?"

Have you asked my partner if they're staying at home with the baby? No? Then don't ask me. If my partner isn't expected to stay home, neither should I.

9. "Are you moving back home?"

I haven't decided if I'm moving back yet. If you want to pay my rent, you can let me know.
