The golden boy is the privileged, favorite child in a family. The golden boy is the child who gets special treatment, nice meals, fun activities, doesn't get in trouble even for something a standard bronze child would. They are also given money, cars, and are taken to expensive meals like sushi, steakhouses etc.

A golden boy, much like golden girl, is someone who is as humanly perfect as you can be. He is usually handsome, sporty, smart, has a sense of humor, is caring, understanding, brave, gentle, strong, and appreciative. A golden boy always keeps an open mind and looks at both points of view, and never judges cruelly. A golden boy might tease and joke around but this is just another one of their perfection details. Golden boys are usually blonde, or have similar to gold hair, tan ish, and have blue green or caramel eyes

A white-collar worker that is always thinking, "What is best for the company?" Constantly working and always letting everyone else know it. Anyone who works less than he does receives only his scorn. Beloved by management and highly annoying to coworkers, especially normal people who have lives outside of work.
