1. A term used to describe a male, or female, who has just left a serious committed relationship and fails miserably at casually dating.

2. Commonly seen from both genders who have become so set in the mindset of a relationship, that the intricacies of first and second dates are thrown out the window to satisfy the need for their parter to fill the hole that their past relationship left.

3. These men and women unconsciously lead on potential suitors, who mistake their habits of intimacy as genuine intimacy, and cause not only heartache for the suitors engaged in the casual encounters, but for themselves as well; usually out of guilt.
1. Person 1: What happened with that girl you were seeing? I thought things were going so well!

Person 2: I thought so too, but after learning about her recent breakup it looked less like a sure thing, and more like she was just flailing around.

2. Person 1: How could you let such a great girl go? You said you really liked her
Person 2: I did, but I don't know what I want after (ex's name) . It's been so hard that I'm still flailing around
