    pretend

    Hi there,

    Any colloquial word or adjectives to describe someone who always pretend to be nice but they are actually not; who claim they knows something, but they are actually not. Is 'pretentious' appropriate adjective to describe them?

    tks

    Someone who always pretend to be nice but they are actually not: Two-faced bitch?

    Pretentious would probably be most apt as an adjective. You might also call the person a "faker" or "poser", maybe a "wannabe" if they really wished they were something they are only pretending to be.
