1. An event in chess where one side is not checkmated on their turn, yet cannot make any moves that would not put their king into peril. This supposedly results in a draw, making it a strategic thing to shoot for if one is hopelessly losing.

2. An event that includes, but is not limited to war, games, and war games, in which neither side participating gains a major advantage or victory over the other for some time. In games, stalemates are usually not permanent, as it often forces one side to use up all their resources, finally giving way to a victory for the one that managed slightly more carefully.
1. It looked as if he was going to make a dominating win, but his opponent managed a clever stalemate. Better than a full out loss.

2. The Starcraft game dragged on for 2 hours, until Bob ran out of ore but Tom still had a resource base going. It was just a matter of time from there.

1. Much like the chess reference, when two or more obese individuals are trying to make love but are unable to make the right parts connect due to their fat obstruction.

2. When a couple is having non-passionate sex and neither seem to be able to reach climax, so they agree to disengage and move on.
1. Jeanne & George were having a hell of a time heavy petting, but the night took a turn for the worse when their passionate attempts to make love resulted in the ever-frustrating stalemate.

2. Rich and Deb were each trying their best to will themselves to orgasm, but after 20 minutes of mindless awkward and slightly painful humping, they agreed they had reached a stalemate, turned on Seinfeld, and called it a night.
