Getting nervous easily around new people, especially those of your sexual preference. And although many people will claim blushing is a part of shyness too, this is not always the case. Many guys find this attractive in girls, although shy guys have a reputation for being ridiculed by girls.
That person is shy, and usually backs away from meeting new people.
Ethan: So Max, are you going to ask Kelsey to the dance?
Max: Nah, I'm too shy.
Ethan: Come on, man, girls don't like shy guys, just be outgoing instead and it'll be easy!
Max: ... It's much easier to talk the talk than to walk the walk.
1. A mean/heartless person.
2. More common: A guy who perfectly fits the gender stereotype, and is insensitive, controlling, and will treat women like sex objects. Though many women constantly complain about guys like that, most end up with one, because they didn't dig deeper and didn't try to see through the jerk's crap. Instead of going for a nice guy
who will obviously be there for a girl, most girls choose what's right in front of them, a cold-hearted bastard who happens to look "macho", who is a big-time flirt and wears his penis on his sleeve.
Billy Bob: Can I have a piece of candy? Please?
Joseph: Let me think about that... NO! WAAAHAHAHAHA!
Billy Bob: ...Jerk!
Charlie: Hey, I heard Becca broke up with Tom...
Ernie: Yeah, she found out he was cheating on her.
Charlie: He sounds like a jerk.
Ernie: He is, but she bought all his shit instead of listening to us, and now she's asking why... kinda sad.
Charlie: Yeah, is sucks to be a nice guy, huh?
Ernie: Tell me about it.
Short for brb, which some people use literally, and are gone anywhere from 3 seconds to 5 minutes. Some people, however, use it much more loosely, and will be gone for hours on end, and usually come back making a truly shitty excuse for why they were gone so long. Used mainly in IM conversations.
1. Proper usage
Person #1: LOL
Person #2: I'll brb, gotta take a shit
Person #1: kk
---1 minute later---
Person #2: k back
Person #1: coo
2. Improper usage
Person #2: LOL
Person #1: brb
Person #2: alright
---15 minutes later---
Person #2: ...hello...?
---45 minutes later---
Person #2: you there!?
---4 hours later---
Person #1: I'm BAAAAACK!
Person #2: What were you doing? Scratching your genitals?
Person #1: NO! Never, I would never ignore you! I was... uh... painting my toenails?
Person #2: psssh *signs off*
The kind of guy who would always be there for a girl, and would never let her down, cheat on her, treat her like shit, etc. The kind of guy that will actually listen to a girl and her problems, and try to help her. And most of these guys, despite the stereotype, still do stand up for themselves, will NOT let someone push them around, and are NOT wimps.
It would seem that girls would race for these kind of guys, but since physical attraction is in truth, just as important to most women as it is to most men, most girls just go for the guy closest to them who acts "tough" and masculine" and is handsome, and will totally ignore the nice guy. And then they'll complain to the nice guy about how they got cheated on and treated like shit, and ask why. Not all girls are like this, but the vast majority, like guys, never dig deeper than the surface and cling on to what they consider "masculine" and go for it.
Nice guy (let's call him N): Hi, I'm always here to help you.
Jerk (let's call him J): Hey sexy, I can beat up any fucker that messes with me!
Blind (mentally, not physically, and let's call her B) girl: Oooh! Hey, J! That is sooooo sexy!
J: Tight. Let's get wild.
---two days later-----
N: So what exactly happened to you?
B: *sniff* he cheated on me, and then called me a stubborn bitch!
N: Awww, that jerk. Well don't worry, you can always talk to me.
B: thank you *sniff*
N: So do you want to hang out sometime?
B: Sorry I got a date with this other guy, who is really hot, and-
N: Oh great, thanks for returning the favor.
B: Anytime! Bye!
N: Wait a minute! Oh shit, she hung up.
***Girls, please give nice guys a chance, or this scenario will keep happening!!!****
The feeling of misery/melancholy/depression that we all feel at some point, that is painful, yet necessary for us to feel the opposite, happiness.
I was overcome by sadness when my puppy died, but I knew it was times like this that made it possible for me to feel happiness.
When someone essentially insults themself in order to get sympathy from other people. A flirting tactic used by many girls.
Guy: Hi, what's wrong?
Girl: *sigh* I look awful today!
Guy: No you don't! You look absolutely wonderful!
Girl: No, I don't. Stop being nice.
Guy: I'm serious, you do! You're the most beautiful girl in the world, you couldn't look better!
Girl: I guess... but I'm stupid.
Guy: No you're not! You're 50 million times smarter than me!
... and this compliment fishing goes on. Don't fall for it, guys. It usually leads you to a girl who will dump you unless you compliment their every move and become their slave.
