A person who inhabits one of the major cities in the world, aged between 17 and 44. An urbanite is an affluent consumer with an optimistic outlook on life that is very different from those who live in "small town" or rural areas.

Urbanites are both a subculture and a contemporary lifestyle. They have 6 key characteristics: Time-poor, city-proud, media-literate, brand-centric, trend-sensitive and culturally-aware.

The British newspaper Metro has listed the 10 "Great expectations" that above all else motivate and drive Urbanites:

01. Expecting to live a meaningful and experience-rich urban life.
02. Expecting to succeed in multiple areas of life (not just career).
03. Expecting to get substantial fulfilment from work (not just cash).
04. Expecting to be at the hub of a large friendship network.
05. Expecting the traditional ideal of "true love" in the modern world.
06. Expecting to have to "make time" in order to have and enjoy time.
07. Expecting to use debt to have what they want, and have it now.
08. Expecting to have a progressive government that delivers results.
09. Expecting to live in a pleasant "urban village" area of their city.
10. Expecting to live a responsible life as an urban consumer.
I like him: He enjoys living in the city so much, his clothes are always nice, keeps up with popular culture, is always organising events and going to cool places and is very socially conscious though he always complains he doesn't have enough time... He's a total urbanite!

Without any racism intended, it is a failure... a failure in multiple areas of life (not just career). It is one who lets their pants sag. One who should evacuate the city at the earliest possible convenience to live a meaningful, fruitful and experience-rich life. One who emulates the mannerisms, language, and fashions associated with African-American culture, particularly hip hop in the United States or the Grime/Garage scene in Britain. A failed attempt at cultural appropriation. One who gets no fulfillment from work. One who is the weakest link in a friendship network, usually the "mooch" & one who is in debt or utilizes debt. One with no discipline, no true culture, no progress, no patience, no responsibility, no honor, no dignity & no respect. One who believes in the melting pot theory, that old blasphemous, gene-mutating perversion which permanently disfigures their offspring for ten generations. One who believes in immediate self gratification. One who is expecting the government to deliver food stamps and/or financial aid. A complete loser in ever sense of the word.
No, I will not move to Philly. It's filled with crime, drugs, allophillia & urbanites. We'll stay in Hockessin or we're threw.

Shane: well, according to the urbanites, it's for nerds.
