The figure of eight motion the cat makes around your legs when it's waiting to be fed. The cat is circling your legs to stop you escaping until it has been fed, whilst herding you towards the food.

Sharking kills more people per year than real sharks.
"The damn cat is sharking the shit out of me"

"Look out, the cat's sharking"

One's relentless circling of the perimeter of a party in pursuit of sexual encounters, repetitive in nature. The shark finally works up the confidence to approach, but those inside the party act as seals, darting away when the shark finally makes entry.

Some sharks have especially weird fetishes, and approach only upon smelling blood.
After sharking for hours, Alden finally broke through murky waters to snatch Alex, but she had fake tits.

Shit parking. Same etymology as sharting for a wet fart.
She abandoned that Prius half way on the pavement. First class sharking.

The act of persistently messaging, or continuously following a female. Resulting in the eventual surrender, and subsequent sympathy shag/kiss to rid her of the human nightmare which haunts her. Sometimes executed in a drunk state, and not uncommonly used in nightclubs.

Originally coined from the somewhat successful tactic used by the notorious Andrew Goudie; receiving a number of kisses, and shags as a result of this universally frowned upon method of sharking.
"This boy wouldn't leave me alone last night! So I had to get with him to get him to fuck off!" - Girl
"Oh he was definitely sharking you then!" - Boy

or,

"What happened to you last night Karina? - Boy
"That boy had so little chat he had to resort to using The Andrew Goudie Tactic." - Karina
"Oh you poor poor person!" - Boy

The act of keeping yourself moving or busy in order to stay awake and alert when you're very tired: Just as a shark needs to keep moving to keep breathing, you need to keep moving to stay awake and alert - otherwise you would go quiet and start to droop and slouch as tiredness sets in. Thrashing onwards like a shark will fight off the tiredness.
"I've been sharking all day today. I'm so tired but it had to be done."

"I sharked for the entire day today! I really hope I can get to sleep earlier tonight...."

"Sharking is hard. I'm tired. Someone slap me, please."

(v) Recently discovered, the Universal Studios shark from the Jaws tourist photo op has the ability for skilled annual pass holders to go inside the shark for their photo. Most tourists will stop and go "ooooh!!!" since the majority of people stick their head into the shark or stand next to it. Inspired by a photo of Steven Speilberg in a shark (named after his lawyer, Bruce) a super cool annual pass holder known only as "nutterbutter" started the trend in 2009.

To "shark" one must go inside the shark with their legs in the mouth and hang upside down. This is an alternative to planking.
Tourist: Oh look let's take ze picture vith ze shark! Oh oh ohhh!! look ze girl iz in ze shark!!

Girl: I'm sharking!!!
