Within a successful, seemingly stable relationship, the settler refers to the "better half", who in essence settles with their partner. This person tends to be either more attractive, wealthier, smarter, personable or some other quality that would seemingly make their partner look inferior, to the extent that people begin to question why they would even date in the first place.

The opposite of a reacher

The girl that is the easy, last resort fuck at the bar or party. You go around the party trying to hook up with some real hot chicks that you haven't had sex with yet and if you can't get them to come back to your place tonight you always have the settler to fall back on because you know she is always down to get slammed.
Jon: Amanda is the settler tonight. She's such a slampig.

Jon: Well if you can't bring any other slut back you gotta settle for her.

Calling one person a settler in a relationship is talking shit about the relationship. These are the same hypocrites that would call somebody else a homewrecker for doing the same with their life.
If two people are happy together, in the end leave them alone and don't worry about their physical appearances. They are with each other for their own reasons, quit talking shit about males and who is a settler for any male because somebody rejected you in life.
