A Baxter is the character in every romantic comedy who is the "sensible" choice. He/she is the current boyfriend/fiance of one of the main characters, who gets left at the altar/airport/wedding rehearsal when the main character realizes she's in love with the unpredictable passionate romantic interest.
"..the minute you see them, you know they're wrong, ... The instant they walk on the screen, they give you some information that immediately makes the audience turn to the person sitting next to them and say, 'He's wrong for her. It'll never work out.” --Michael Showalter--
"That insurance agent she's dating is so responsible and dull. He's a total Baxter."

An adorable, wonderful boy. He nerds without warning, he blinks a lot when he's nervous, and his voice cracks when he laughs. He's sweet and quiet but always has something to say.The kind of boy that will stay up till ungodly hours just to play videogames, and is cuddles when he's afraid. Unlike the other posts say, he's not just some fallback. He'll make someone very happy someday. I know it. :)
"Oh, hey Baxter."
"You Baxter, you."

The Simple Concept of "Loved By All, Laid By None".

An amazing dancer. Girls will be stepping on each others toes to get a dance with him. He is very modest about his looks even though he is very athletic, tan, and muscular. He is unaware of the way that girls look at him, and he is the kind of guy that a dad would be proud to have his daughter date. He is usually country and works on farms and ranches any time a job is offered to him. He likes to hunt and fish, and has many good (sometimes exaggerated) stories because of it. He's the kind of person that you miss when they're not around.
I miss Baxter's wonderful dance moves so much!
a sexy little man fish
he loves swimming long walks on beaches and to eat gold fish flakes. gets scared when fingers are put into bowl. but if tapping bowl he will come to your finger. he likes listening to music, enjoys laughing, and loves good homes. if you would like to meet him go to a pet store near you.
The guy you love to hate who steals your job, girlfriend or wife.
A trusted friend and companion who steals the show, is your only friend and defends you against bears.
