any person who is financially irresponsible and tries as much as they can to get something for nothing. This person will do anything to avoid hard work. They will often try and manipulate others into giving them money, because they are too damned lazy to work for a living.

A deadbeat is a person over the age of 18 with no direction, no job, no ambition. taking a shower daily is a huge accomplishment! A deadbeat doesn't want to work, yet still try and convince young gulliable girls that he does. He will spend their money, and make them work while they play video games. They make other's feel sorry for their deadbeat asses because they talk a good story. Deadbeats do not pay their own way. They sponge off their families, their friends, and any other person dumb enough to give them money. They are a lethal cancer to everyone near them.
