Noun: a friend who is usually only called upon by a friend when a more primary/prominent friend is unavailable.

Taken from the term β€œsecond string” in an athletic competition situation. In football, if the star quarterback gets injured during a play, the second string is called off the bench to replace him/her. A β€œSecond String Friend” is essentially benched until needed, if ever.

Synonyms: Plan B, Second Choice, Secondary Friend, Benched Until Needed
I got a call from X the other night. She had an extra ticket to a concert she bought for a friend, but they couldn’t make it so she called me to ask if I wanted to go because I am her Second String Friend.

Gymtimidation is when someone is very insecure about them selves and they feel threatened by others in the gym who are in good physical condition.

Many people do not go to the gym because of this as well.
Many who are gymtimidated take another persons serious look on their face while they are working out as a threat and feel gymtimidated.

They also feel that everyone in the gym is staring at them but in reality, no one is paying them any attention
Gymtimidation: Is the fear of others who are in better shape than they are.
Much of this fear is generated from the victim himself
