Don't get caught up in the hype... Unfortunately your girl might be a thot. Here's a few steps/pointers to properly dodge a thot.
1.) Do your homework. The streets will talk. Yes everyone has a past... But don't be foolish ask around or at least drop her name to get an reaction.
2.) Check her Instagram. Social Media is not everything but you can spot a thot based on her poses. If she is always looking back at it, Showing lots of cleavage... You already know what's up.
3.) She bops on certain professions. She only dates or talks to athletes, rappers and business professionals. Chances are she's a seasoned thot... Watch out shawty will run game then run a check up.
4.) She's materialistic. She mentions handbags, shoes and other expensive stuff every other sentence. She's an opportunist thot.
5.) Check her mindset. If she thinks it's cute or appropriate to finesse men. She's a thot. If she tells multiple men she's pregnant for abortion money she's the ultimate thot.
6.) She's always on Go. You ain't gotta work for anything... She will drop whatever she's doing to kick it with you... She's an easy thot.
7.) Check out her circle. Birds of the same feather often flock together.
8.) She's always in drama. She's a basic thot. She will blame everything on someone "hating" when actually she's the cause of the problem.
Other things to watch out for excessive amounts of weave, facial piercings, nasty tweets, sharing friends clothes, Worldstar fights, Trojan wrappers in her car, roll on lipgloss....

In a social media crazy, digitally focused society we want to look our best online. Everyone has taken a pic that looks nothing like them. Sometimes unflattering and other times gorgeous. If you constantly hear others who know you personally say "Wow that looks nothing like you"... You may be a fraud, a social media imposter that is.
Here's a few signs that you may be catfishing others...
1) You use multiple photo editing apps. - yeah...
2.) You use the "Valencia" filter on IG to appear "light skin" - you're the same color as Morris Chestnut. Love your blackness baby.
3.) You never take full body shots. - you're 300 pounds you look 125 on IG.
4.) You heavily contour your face. - your nose looks totally different in person.
5.) You pose in your friends clothes. - we've seen that same outfit on your home girl numerous times.
6.) You take pics of your rent money as if you're "ballin" - take the money to the rent office before you become a victim of theft
7.) You use celebrity endorsement to appear popular - you randomly see stars and act as if you know them personally.
8.) Your silhouette looks blurry - chances are you've photoshopped yourself.
