Extreme heartache and suffering most likely caused by a guy you trust and keep trusting, but they always inadvertently push you away and make you feel like you're dying. But you tell them it's ok and they believe you then ask your friend and they tell them you're distressed.
Guy:"Hey let's not be thing"
Person:"Yeah I was thinking that too"*walks away dying*
Friend to Guy:"oh boy she's distressed"

- A very effective tool for explaining the gravity of your sexual HUNGER
Wow i really wanna be pummeled in my tiny ass my poor scalp is tingling fuck in in a deep sexual distression.
This is where a woman manufactures an intimate yet fake online relationship with a (usually lonely) male to con him out of money. After she sinks her claws in, she comes up with a story that her electricity and internet are about to be cut off and she won't be able to talk to him anymore. The guy believes he is a knight in shining armor coming to her rescue and wires her a few hundred dollars. Meanwhile, the grifter girl has another 6 marks on the hook who she's currently working. (The guy is distressed when he finally figures it out…)
Dude, you look like hell! What happened?

I met this really great girl over the internet. We fell in love and were planning to meet in person. But she lost her job and couldn't pay her bills. So I sent her some money to help her out but I haven't heard from her in days. I'm really worried something happened to her.

Dude! You totally got Damsel-in-Distressed!


Uh, never mind.

An annoying character who's only purpose is to be rescued, to the point where you just want to say, "You know what? Let the train hit 'em!"
