Also known as when someone(emo) cuts themselves across the wrist.
Emo kids usually do it because they want to die, but truthfully that is not a very productive way to do it.

This is where the term "Down the road, not across the street." (also variated with alley and stream/river) originated.

Cutting yourself across the street will just be painful. Chances are it won't kill you, unless you're a hemophiliac. You can still do it if you are emo enough to prove you're hardcore.
When will they learn!? Cutting across the street does nothing! Down the road, all the way!

A way of conveying a location (e.g. a building) that is across a roadway from another location. It doesn’t necessarily mean directly across but can also refer to a location that is at least a block down the road and across.
The bar is across the street, bitch. Not directly across. But across and one block down.

To be the 'Guy Across The Street' you have to be the total opposite of the 'Guy Next Door'.

More of a bad boy, leather jacket and all. Also known as a 'Player'. Guys Next Door like to take advantage of girls and enjoy sex.

They don't usually get into relationships. They also tend to get drunk at parties and start fights. You find a lot of Guys Across The Street falling in love with the innocent good girls in romance novels.

These are not the kinds of guys you would generally take home to your parents unless you really want to piss them off.

Many girls tend to think they can change a Guy Across The Street and they usually just end up heart broken or become a single teen mom.
The total opposite of what Aaron Tviet looks like in a lot of his pictures.

Girl 1: Wow, that guy looks mighty fine!
Girl 2: Too bad he is a total Guy Across The Street.
Girl 1: So? I'm still going for him. Maybe I can change him.
