When two people who like eachother are both online, both wanting to talk to eachother, but both too scared to IM eachother, thus resulting in a race to see who will swallow their pride first.
person 1: "man i was online for 2 1/2 hours waiting for Florence to IM me, but she didn't."
person 2: "well did you IM her?"
person 1: "naw... i just gave her the online death stare"
person 2: "nice, that'll get you laid for sure.."
