(verb). When a person suddenly begins to have strong cravings for or becomes incredibly desirous of something; like a particular food, person, drug, drink, sex-capade, etc. Unfortunately, due to circumstances, finances or other obstacles, these unlucky souls are usually are left unsatisfied, and are therefore left to "gurn." This craving is akin to what the French call, “La douleur exquise”- the exquisite pain of wanting someone (or something) that you know you can never have.
“It’s been three weeks since I have seen Greta, dude, and I am like, totally gurning for her!”

Or:
“So, I hate to admit it but, like, it’s always when I’m out of my stash that I gurn for it the most!”

Or:
"Paul loves the pain of it. He loves to deprives himself as long as he can stand to gurn and then he goes out on his jags."

Derogative slang term for a black person. Derived from the word gurney. Say gurney 10 times fast and listen to what it sounds like. Special because the gurns themselves do not know what it means.
