dissimulate (verb) pretend; hide (one's feelings, etc.).

When a person dissimulates, they pretend, they hide their real feelings. They appear different from what they are, to mislead people. For example, they pretend love for others, when they may not love them at all. They may put on a bold face and appear cheerful when they are disappointed and dejected.
