Abbreviated term for the compound 'Involuntary Celibate'. In Darwinian terms a person deemed 'least fit to reproduce', manifested in social terms as someone unable to copulate due to the absence of even a single willing partner. More typically male than female. Hangs around on internet forums generally blaming females for this undesirable condition. Unable to compete on the level playing field of sexual equality can be seen clamouring for a return to the middle ages where all that was needed to nab a woman was two cows and a quarter acre. Could be considered a 'Darwinian loser' whose gene pool is facing extinction unless they address negative personality traits and/or get into physical condition necessary for attraction to opposite sex.
Woman: He's nice enough but he identifies as one of those incels.

Friend: Stay away from him. That's akin to announcing oneself as an unreformable loser.

An incel, or, "involuntarily celibate", is an individual (often male) who believes that society is conspiring against them to prevent them from having sex. However, the mainstream media would have you believe that this includes anyone that challenges backwards social norms or is open about their loneliness.

a person who is basically incapable of finding love, largely due to treating women like shit. the majority of incels believe they can’t find love because they are ugly, while it is usually because they have no respect for women. most incels are pieces of shit and all around hated by individuals around them. they believe women owe them sex, yet the majority of them never lose their virginity, or lose their virginity to a cheap hooker with a crusty pussy and crabs. should you meet an incel in real life, it is advised that you run to safety in order to avoid becoming one yourself.

Normie definition: desperate for a relationship soy boy, who is unable to get any.

In a more general sense: a person who desperately desires a certain (usually more sexually active) lifestyle, that they are unable to achieve, but don't want to get over it.

In reality: one of many terms used to shame single (usually low sexual market value) males, even if they aren't looking for a relationship.
