Top definition
The act of offering support or reassurance to someone before they have even expressed concern for the situation they are in. Sometimes a welcome gesture, but more often than not is not helpful to the situation and may worsten the concerns of the person or create concern where it previously did not exist.
Usually not a malicious gesture, sometimes just an act of ignorance.
Mike: "I'm asking Jenny out tonight!"
Tom: "Yeah man, I'm sure you'll be fine. She's probably dated fat guys with acne before and your breath isn't that bad"
Mike: "Thanks for the preassurance dude"
