Oh her? Don't even worry about her, girl. She's so basic.

I tried to get to know him, but after I spent 10 minutes with him, I realized he was too basic for me to waste time on.

Is there anything unique or special about her? I have a feeling she's pretty basic...

He's probably the dumbest person on earth. Too basic to even carry on a semi-intelligent conversation.

I cannot deal with basic people. I get so frustrated by their basicness!

The disease that makes people ratchet as fuck. This includes symptoms such as an unusually strong affection to pumpkin spice (specifically Starbucks), a longing to wear Uggs and/or LuLu Leggings, and continuously saying "I literally can't even." Behavioral problems include making fun of people who have an iPhone 6 or under, considering themselves to be fat after eating more than one potato chip, and clapping every syllable when trying (a failing) to not make a dumb ass point.
I literally can't even with this definition of basic because I'm a spoiled brat who doesn't give a shit about others feelings.

Someone who is Basic is a total follower; a person that cannot make their own decisions or think for themselves. They are usually a townie who, in the unlikely event gets up enough courage to leave town, will no doubt be back within a year when they can’t cut it and are eaten alive. There is nothing standout about this person, as they like whatever is “cool” and mainstream at the time be it fashion, music, TV shows, etc. This dull, shell of a person participates in “group think” even as an adult. A Basic Bitch most likely wears leggings as pants, loves Starbucks, and watches shows like “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” and “Real Housewives.” A Basic Bro (who is also a Bitch) can be seen sporting the bro-uniform blue button downs, “loves sports,” listens to Country (because it’s “cool” now), and reads Maxim.
Check out that pack of Basic Bro's wearing the same blue button down. They must have gotten dressed together this morning.
