A male, usually timid and without a mind of his own. Who consistently has to deal with an abusive girlfriend or wife. This person usually has no idea that they are being abused and/or does not consider her behaviour to be abuse. Often times making excuses for her and doing whatever she commands. The girlfriend of a Silverman is often times controlling and restrictive in nearly all aspects of his life; especially when it comes to his friends. It is the duty of all good friends to make sure this kind of relationship ends permanently or doesn't begin at all, or else this cancerous girlfriend could ruin your friendship.
The word "Silverman" refers to the character Darren Silverman, played by Jason Biggs, in the movie Saving Silverman.

"I heard Dom finally broke up with Bini, good....He was such a Silverman in that relationship."
"Dom's been drinking a lot more lately. I heard Bini put him on the couch too. I don't ever want to be a Silverman like that guy."
"Friends don't let friends become a Silverman."
