n. (english) A male in his early 20's who claims to have strong feelings and sleeps with a woman, then bails on any responsibility - emotionally or otherwise. Often a scruff will bev food, clothes, and possibly money. They typically have that "ridden hard, put up wet" look that initially is attractive, but does not do well under bright lights. Similar to the endearment "tramp" from the Disney movie The Lady and the Tramp, but less endearing, because scruffs bail, while tramps stay and may even raise pups. Physical signs include bad piercings and tatoos, and a fear of looking a woman directly in the eyes.
He works in a bowling alley - what a scruff.
You should stay away from that guy. Melissa lost her whole paycheck trying to keep that scruff entertained.
That scruff still lives in his mom's basement.
Betty seems to only hook up with scruffs, she must know she is not ready for someone who wants to commit.
