When someone who won't speak to you otherwise still watches every snap on your story/ IG and/or likes your posts. Usually someone who has ghosted you, but not always. Basically they're lingering in your life despite refusing to be an active part in it in any other capacity.
This guy won't answer my texts but he keeps watching my snap story... he's totally orbiting me.

Orbiting is when the person who ghosted you , continues to linger in your life by watching every single one of Instagram stories and liking/commenting on your social media posts.

When you are driving and you spot a particularly attractive wench near a roundabout, you continue going around the roundabout ignoring any of the exits and concentrating firmly on the attractive pedestrian. The quality of the goods on show can be judged by the number of orbits completed.
You should have seen the girl standing by the roundabout this morning, she was a triple orbiter make no mistake.
I got caught orbiting last night, she knew exactly what I was doing by the 12th lap.

When your bf or gf ghosts you, but still lurks your Instagram/Snapchat story. In other words, this person is completely erased from your life except for the ocassional peek.
That chick is totally orbiting me. He stopped talking to me but I see him in the viewer section of Instagram stories.

A state of mind usually reached through the use of narcotics in which a person is so far gone that they appear to be lost in space.
While the rest of us played XBOX, Steven sat silently in the corner, undoubtedly orbiting. Blunts were never his cup of tea,..

When you spend too much time thinking about higher level concepts instead of getting shit done.
What if I did x, y and z in order to solve this problem to make it a lot more efficient at doing this and that?
...Nah, I'm orbiting too much.
