look up any word, like bae:
 
1.
something that is strange/not normal but cool
Wearing long stripy socks that are odd...
by Moi xx August 23, 2004
 
2.
Unconventional, surprising, odd.

A word often used by narcissistic scenesters when they describe their oh-so-unique selves in their Livejournal user info pages in attempts to sound like interesting people.

It is a word best used by one person to describe another. Those who apply "quirky" to themselves thereby call into question their very own "quirkiness" by seeming gleefully self-aware (just like everyone else).

Is weird in a good way, sometimes describing a person with an excellent talent for mind-reading and has psychic abilities. A person that is quirky also has a way with words and spends a lot of time articulating thoughts and emotions whether in a car or writing in a journal. Quirky characteristics can also be a sign for the ability to put forth many amazing smiles from people. Quirky people can also be charcaterized as people who play, LOTRO and enjoy it. Quirky people may also have an uncanny obsession with Recess peanut butter cups and peanut butter chocolate icecream. All in all, quirky people are amazing, and great friends with excellent personalities that can bring anyone's mood up.
My friend is considered a quirky person because he/she has an obsession with recess cups
