n. (english) A male in his early 20's who claims to have strong feelings and sleeps with a woman, then bails on any responsibility - emotionally or otherwise. Often a scruff will bev
food, clothes, and possibly money. They typically have that "ridden hard, put up wet" look that initially is attractive, but does not do well under bright lights. Similar to the endearment "tramp" from the Disney movie The Lady and the Tramp, but less endearing, because scruffs bail, while tramps stay and may even raise pups. Physical signs include bad piercings and tatoos, and a fear of looking a woman directly in the eyes.
