stupid or slow-witted; adjective - (Oxford English Dictionary definition) also describes one who is lacking in composure, grace, intellect, style etc.

A nick-name for one whose attributes are all of the above.
Tom: That guy is SO gormless, he really doesn't have a clue! It's actually hilarious to watch... from a distance.
Dick: Yeah, I really cant stand that guy! I'd NEVER invite him to a party.
Harry: Guys, chill, it can't be easy to wake up every morning and have to face not only the world but also yourself. Have some compassion for the dude; he's clearly got problems.

Brian: Sometimes I just feel so, so, SO gormless!
Briana: Hmm, 'gormless', rhymes with formless, chormless, hormless...
Brian: That's not helpful.
Briana: Perhaps if you thought about your words before you spoke them... hmm? After all, the definition of a gentleman IS 'one who says what they mean and means what they say'!

"The man gormlessly(<-adverb) spent his life with his proverbial foot in his mouth; always the moment killer, cringe worthy comment maker, lie starter and shit stirrer. He had made many enemies out of friends and had a lot to atone for."

based on Roald Dahl's Matilda: people who aren't dull or stupid, but arrogant and narcissistic
well if look at the current British slang definition of gormless, it certainly wouldn't describe Matilda's parents in Roald Dahl's book, so I'd say gormless should have a new and improved meaning

A person, male or female, whose intellect is sub-par. They say and do things that make you scratch your head. They have the tendency to either drool and/or accumulate that white stuff at the corners of their mouth. They tend to be slovenly people with no sense of style and their bodies tend to look asexual.
1. "Fuck me, look at that gormless bastard, what is that?"
2. "Is that a boy or a girl?"
3. "Are those tits or man tits?"
4. "I wouldn't fuck that gormless bitch with a ten foot bargepole"
