With the ongoing health crisis, most of us are forced to stay at home to help flatten the curve and prevent further spread of the coronavirus. Weeks upon weeks confined indoors are doing a number on some people. Especially introverts. And they’re coping with everything by joining Facebook roleplaying groups where everyone pretends to be something they’re not. No, no one’s crazy. We hope.
Apparently, we are all insects

“A group where we all pretend to be ants in an ant colony” — this is the OG group. Or at least, the group that went rather viral during this quarantine. Everyone is just going L I F T or B I T E — or whatever the queen commands. The group has been around for nearly a year with only a circle of nine friends in it, but it grew so much bigger than they thought it would. They’re nearing two million members now. Join here.

Alternatively, “A group where we all pretend to be Bees” is also open to new members. They’re not as big as the Ant group, with only at less than forty thousand members, so you can help the hive get bigger. Just buzz buzz buzz your way in. Join here.

I’m in a Facebook group called “a group where we all pretend to be farmers and cows” and whoever’s posting will do so from the perspective of a farmer and all the commenters have to be cows and so all of the comments are just different people saying “mmooooo” and it’s great pic.twitter.com/zBiyQNW4hl

Did you know farmers and cows have beef with each other? Or at least, they do in the alternate universe that is “a group where we all pretend to be farmers and cows.” (The pun was worth it. Or was it?) In this group, farmers call for the cows by making a post, and everyone else can only moo back. Moo with everyone by joining here.

Sisa might just start shouting in this Facebook roleplaying group — “a group where we pretend to live during the spanish colonial times.” Warning: conyo people may experience nosebleed. Kindly prepare, but you can join here.

“a group where we all pretend to be interested in each other” . . . I’m honestly not sure whether to laugh or cry at this group, because let’s be real (for a bit) — most of us aren’t. But if you want validation from a bunch of strangers (a.k.a. what most people want from the internet), join here because you’d definitely get it.
In need of social interaction

We’re all so starved for in-person social interaction that we’re willing to go back to our offices — or at the very least, pretend we are all in the same office with nearly 150,000 people all over the world (wow, what a company), or be roommates with more than twenty thousand random strangers (how big is this room?), just to feel some semblance of normalcy. We’re willing to fight with our “officemates” and “roommates” just for that, and maybe you are too. Be an officemate here, or board up with us here.

Story of 2020: we speak gibberish and pretend to understand each other
The only two groups we wish were true
There’s this group on Facebook where you pretend to be rich af and someone asked this and ppl are commenting with their selfies photoshopped with some celebrities and I posted a pic with hOSEOKHWJSHWKSHHS WHY AM I L ILE THSI pic.twitter.com/le4XFAZOCf

I think “A Group Where We All Pretend to be Rich” speaks for itself. If you want to meet your favorite celebrity, join here. And with the long weeks of this quarantine, we all want to believe we’re all still emotionally stable. If you want to see wholesome posts, join “A Group Where We All Pretend to be Emotionally Stable” here.
The helpful group . . . ?

What other groups have you seen? Share them with us below! We just hope they aren’t going to war like these ones . . .
