Person 1: Did you see the invite list to Jimmy's party?

Person 2: Yeah I did, it was so random, it looked like a strange group.

Person 1: Yeah well he invited Chuck and his group.

Person 2: Really? What a social climber. I heard he uninvited Brendan though. Said he was 'too awkward'.

Person 1: That's so dumb, I can't believe that he would do that, talk about throwing your 'friends' under the bus.

(n.) Similar to an "attention whore", but a social climber is anyone that becomes friends with someone else if they have something that they want, which we all know involves people. They become 'friends' with people who "know people". In turn, they become (or attempt to become) 'friends' with that first person's more "popular" friends, leaving the first person behind. Repeats this cycle to "get to the top", in their own mind, until they realize they are shallow and unable to like people for who they really are. Inevitably, they will be forced to "mature" beyond this. This usually pertains to girls more so than guys.
Cat becomes friends with Nate. Cat is very nice to Nate because Nate's friends all throw good parties. Cat plays on Nate's (painfully obvious) attraction/interest in Cat to get her and several of her friends rides/free alcohol at Nate's friends' parties. Cat meets some other people who know about parties and social things through Nate's party, and eventually doesn't see any more USE for him. Cat is a social climber, because to her, friendship is just a game and other people's feelings don't matter, because she doesn't feel them.
