A guy that wants to sleep with his female friend.

He "orbits" her (hangs out with in a needy way) in the hopes of getting sex someday.

If the girl is hot, she usually has many orbiters.

Go open that hot chick. Don't worry about the guy, he isn't her boyfriend, he's just one of her orbiters.

A guy who pussyfoots around a specific woman, or women in general, in hopes of getting laid. This almost never works out, as he stays around her dawdling, ogling, and daydreaming rather than actually approaching her.
The orbiter sat patiently as he watched her. Then her boyfriend came along and he knew he had to go.

Ugly or fat girls that hang around an attractive or many attractive girls in order to reap the benefits of having slack jawed guys following them around.
You're at the bar and there's this hot girl, but she has like 3 ugly orbiter girl friends hanging around her.
They're just following her because the guys to go the pretty one and the uggies hope that her table scraps (guys she doesn't want) will pick them up after being rejected.

The skinnier females that orbit around the fat girl in various settings, such as at a bar or lounge scene, or a nightclub, etc...
Go distract the fat girl by buying her some finger food at the bar, while we pick up the three cute orbiters and meet you in front in 15 minutes.

A guy who secretly loves his female 'friend', and may go out of his way to accommodate her (couch-mover). Either the guy was shot-down early on and was placed in the friend-zone, or he never had the balls to ask her out and inadvertently placed himself in the friend-zone.
Peter wasn't actually a real friend, he was just another orbiter of yours. That's why he was being an ass to your new boyfriend.

Peter is such an orbiter. Look, he's moving a his hot friend's couch on his back!

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.
