A Get-by is someone that you use, in order to get through a situation.
"Girl, why don't you talk to Angela anymore... you know the girl from your Biology class?"

"Maaan, she was just a get-by; there wasn't really many people to talk to in that class. What about you & them people you used to sit with at lunch?!"
