Almost the entire opposite to a fuckboy. This specimen lives entirely from the boys, and devotes their life to putting smiles on their friends faces, through particular acts such as shoey’s, rhinos and getting naked. The vocabulary of the breather isn’t extensive, it centralises around phrases such as “don’t dog the boys”, “yeah the boys” and “sup bro” accompanied with a head raise. Their particular way of life focusing on impressing other males, is usually used to mask feelings of inadequacy towards woman, this usually stems from a high school relationship that went sour because the breather decided to make themselves emotionally vulnerable (it won’t happen again, fuck you Stacey). Well the breather feels most comfortable sinking wets in an apartment in New Zealand funded through an extensive student loan, they are actually in Wellington, Dunedin ect…to go to University. They struggle to sit in a lecture theatre for more than 30 minutes, without retreating to the toilets to rail a line of pingers (which is most likely laundry powder), and due to this have already cost their upper middle class family over $2000 dollars in failed commerce papers. They will most likely be found wearing Huffer attire, and a Rodd & Gunn hat roaming the streets of a New Zealand city hungover on a Monday.
Girl 1 - "Did you finally talk to big Jock last night? He was looking pretty cute !"
Girl 2 - "No he was to busy doing a rhino, and stealing darts of Catelyn"
Girl 1 - "Oh, that sucks, I didn't know he was such a breather"

A person who makes no earthly contribution to life. They stand, sit or lay around doing nothing except putting down others that have done something in life. They take up too much oxygen breathing my air.
Man, Rick talks about everybody and has not done anything in life worth a hill a beans - he is such a breather.

An unusually large bowel movement; so large part of it extends beyond the surface of water in the toilet bowl. Feces in this situation is said to be "breathing" or a "breather" as it appears to be coming up for air.

Usually some guy who smashes Waikatos with some weird ass name. Lives and breathes the boys. Uses local slang like "Chur" and "safe". Thinks everything is grouse. Out the gate music taste but people don't seem to mind Hard bass. Joyful.
Aiden: Chur breather, you're the next best thing since sliced bread!
Deano: Tumeke my bro.

Breathers are those annoying non smoking or ex smokers that have to bitch about everything and everyone that smokes, where they smoke, when they smoke, and how they are affecting their health. Boo Hoo
Those breathers over there are giving us a dirty look for smoking.
If those breathers wave their hand at my smoke one more time there is going to be some toe meeting some teeth.
