1. Tacit Enabler - Supports another's bad habits by staying silent.

2. Overt Enabler - Supports another's bad habits by providing assistance such as money, transportation, approval, etc...

A person who supports another person's bad or dangerous habits.

Enablers tend to fear calling others on their destructive habits because these "others" tend to be friends, family or others close to the enabler.

Thus, rather than risk losing the love, respect, friendship or contact with the person, the enabler chooses instead to play it safe and watch the other slowly destroy themselves or others through their own actions.

Mike, the Tacit Enabler: (Noncommital grunt)

(verb) the action of sub-consciously getting a girl to fall in love with you. An enabler is extremely precise and strategically tactful. They will engage in constant texting, planning of casual dinners and RomCom date nights. An enabler does not limit himself to one target and will occupy his time in multiple engagements with girls often in the same group of friends.

After a girl is successfully enabled; the "enabler" becomes officially bored and will subsequently deploy the response mechanism known as disabling. A disabler will refuse to response to messages/calls and avoid social events where the "enablee" will be in attendance
Guy 1: Why are you so upset?
Guy 2: I've got to stop enabling these Melbourne girls. They get upset if I shower them in affection and then delete them from facebook after I'm bored
Guy1: You need to work on your disabling techniques man

1. A situation in which one member of a couple is failing to meet the other's sexual needs.

2. A state of mind in which a spouse or significant other refuses to accept all evidence that their mate is being unfaithful.
1. Although Bonnie continually fought with her husband about their lack of sufficient sexual contact, Mike refused to acknowledge that Bonnie had a more powerful sex drive than he did, and that he needed to try harder to satisfy her. He continued to leave Bonnie in a frustrated state of sexual denial.

2. Even though several of Mike's female friends warned him that there was "only one reason" why his hot young blue-eyed wife would want to go to a popular predatory pick up bar alone, Mike refused to believe them, and kept letting Bonnie go there. Later, when Bonnie confessed and he found out that his friends had been right, Mike finally had to face the truth that his darling had been getting the sex she craved in passionate Friday night couplings with the handsome strangers she hooked up with. And Mike was forced to admit that he had made it all possible, even acting as Bonnie's enabler, by remaining cocooned in his self-created fantasy world of sexual denial, while she went out.
