The desperate and final wimperings of an exboyfriend/exgirlfriend gasping and pleading for one last chance in the relationship. This almost always occurs 2 or 3 weeks after you have already checked out of the relationship and most often gurgled after 2 am.
Often times the "Death Gurgler" will include an acknowledgment that there may not be a response (and that's ok), in an attempt to save face, thereby making themselves look more pathetic.
The "gurgle" is never done face to face, always via text/email/voice mail.
For example, the following could be a late night Death Gurgle email:
