A town in South Wales, the centre of which is packed with drug dealers, addicts, gamblers, steroid monkeys, prostitutes, ex-convicts, sluts and thugs ranging from 14-40 year olds, a few shops, a couple of shit corrupt nightclubs and on a Friday or Saturday night a riot van and possibly an ambulance. If one were to venture in on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday you would likely see many marvellous sights, such as a vast number of fights, blood splatters and broken glass across most of the floor, a good few people in handcuffs and maybe even some bloke getting sucked off down an alley.

Then as you proceed out of the centre you have many neighbourhoods and a recreation centre filled with 'crews' who go round looking for fights with other 'crews' whilst drinking on the street, that is if they aren't off their faces on some illegal substance. These neighbourhoods often have loud house parties and boy racers driving in a hatchback with an exhaust the size of the moon, playing music through a subwoofer more expensive than the car itself.

As you proceed out again you have small pleasant villages where none of the trouble actually happens, as there are no pubs, clubs or parties within walking distance.
The more you go out of Bridgend the more pleasant the surrounding area becomes.

1. A shithole of a town in Wales. Famed for a rash of teenage suicides. Now used to describe anywhere that is so depressing that you'd sooner kill yourself than live there.

2. A term to define an Emo suicide due to then prevelance of teenage suicides in the less-than-lovely South Wales town.
1. I was so glad to get out of my first appartment - it was such a shit-tip that it made Bridgend look nice.

Emo: "I'm not okay" by My Chemical Romance is all about me!
Normal person: Go pull a Bridgend you whiney emo-fuck!

Gavin Henson comes from there abouts.
No wonder it's had so many suicides, their all dying of embarrasment about the fact.
He's a shit rugby player who's only famous for stupid hair cuts and shagging that manky Cardiff bird who takes all comers church!!!!

On a serious note though, I'd rather hang my self than live in Bridgend.

I have been out and drank in bridgend on numerous occasions and I am pleased to say I will never go again.
It is full of little chavs with no brains and single parent whores with multiple children from dozens of fathers.

South Wales single mom capital and benfits capital.

I'm Pregnant, Give me a Council house and my benefits please!!!
I broke down in bridgend once.
I had to wait hours for a tow as they were all out of rope!!!

I was hanging a round in bridgend.
It took the police 48 hrs to find me

1. The end of a bridge, where it meets the land.
2. A shit tip of a town in South Wales which has a habit of creating never ending housing estates. The town has a sensational night life, if you consider being surrounded by puking 14 year old and horny 40 year olds sensational.
1 Is that the bridgend?
2 Why would you want to go to Bridgend dear?

Touching of an erection from behind through the legs over the trouser fabric (similar in effect to a watford handshake)
"I was walking down the highstreet, next thing i know im getting a straight up bridgend from a total stranger"

"Im gunna tuck it behind meself so when we get on the train you can work your magic and do me a stonking brigend"

A really mediocre rugby team, based in Bridgend (south wales), who are famous for having the attitude that each player in all their age groups is god's gift. It's this awful way of thinking, as you would know if you knew them, that makes them "a cut above" in their own minds. In the event that they do lose a game or they clearly don't live up to their own ridiculous expectations, they are keen to blame; the ref being bad, "not playing their normal starting side", injuries, weather and (my personal favorite) a biased ref - as if any of these are acceptable. Among the other local rugby teams (and rugby teams as far as cardiff or swansea), there is a commonly used phrase "Athed".

Being Athed is when somebody or some player spends to long around people or players who convince them that said player is the best thing since sliced bread. In short, almost a brainwashing affect which changes the said player's attitudes more like the typical Bridgend Athletic attitudes. The process of "Athing" as it were, doesnt have to be done by supporters/players of Bridgend Athletic. It can be done to ANYONE by ANY TEAM. The same principle could apply to any other sport just as well.
Guy1: Bridgend Athletic players all have their heads up their own asses and dont like it shoved up em in a physical game.


*Athing or being Athed*

Person1: Bob's been spending allot of time with those guys from ________ R.F.C lately don't you think?

Person2: Yeah i know right! he was saying the other day about how much better he reckoned was than Dai and how easily _______ R.F.C would beat Dai's team!

Person1: Well everybody kind of knows that Dai is better than Bob, even though Bob is also a good player. Most people who say or think otherwise are looking through rose tinted spectacles on Bob's behalf. He was a nice enough guy who just got on with it before, but now he's been made to think more of himself, being convinced he is better than Dai.

Person2: It's not fair to blame him though those guys down at _______ R.F.C have been Athing him for ages.

Person1: Yeah, he's been totally Athed.
