a female with male like characteristics.
Tomboys give 0 fucks about whats going on or who talks about them. They'd rather spend the day in the mud wrestling with their friends then to stay inside painting their nails. A tomboy doesn't have to play a sport. Tons of girly girls play sports so it doesn't really matter.
"Wanna go to the nail salon with me and Jessica?"
"Sorry. I already made plans to play football at the park with the guys."

"Wow you're a true tomboy aren't you?"
"I wouldn't say i'm a tomboy, maybe i'm somewhere in between?"

A girl who's not fucking afraid of spiders. She doesn't care if her hair's not perfect, she uses cozy clothes (bras especially) rather than the latest fashion and she hangs out with boys instead of bitches. She knows how to fix your car but not how to apply the perfect eyeliner, she loves wrestling in the rain but not walking in high heels. She thinks twice before putting a skirt on, then thinks again and goes for jeans instead. Her closet's full of black and blue clothes instead of pink and she sleeps in an old t-shirt. She's always herself.
I'm a straight girl with messy hair and a funny sense of humor. I ride a black motorcycle, I love climbing and kick boxing and I'm probably better at card tricks than you. I'm a tomboy.

A young girl who would rather be playing football in the rain than out shopping and boy hunting. Hangs out with boys. Does not care about what other people think of her, nor does she judge others for the way they are. Very sporty, and does not follow the latest fashion trends. Does not make fun of what most people would call " nerds " or " geeks ", and in fact befriends them most of the time. I am a tomboy, and I love it.
Girl: Whoa, look at that tomboy out in the football field! She's really kicking hide out there!

Valley Girl: Want to go shopping at Claire's?
Tomboy Girl: No, thanks. I'm going to Justin's to play football.

Tom boy; a girl/young woman, who embraces her emotions & feminine side, but also isnt afraid to get down & dirty (never worried about a little bit of dirt&&mud.) A girl who enjoys Ford & Chevy trucks with 4X4 & a lift kit. A girl or young women that can do everything a boy/young man can. Maybe better, maybe worse but always as sexy or sexier. Generally doesnt put up with bullshit & cant stand prissy little girls. A Tom Boy is NOT a lesbian and enjoys her men with gorgeous green eyes, a dirt bike or big truck, a little sweat doesn't hurt, without the cockiness & still a gentleman.
If your a badass im sure you know at least one Tom Boy.

A girl who dresses and sometimes behaves the way boys are expected to, often into more masculine things like "stronger" sports, computers, or cars. Stereotypically wears jeans, baseball caps, and denim vests/jackets. Often brought up with a lot of brothers or a child of a single father.

a girl who would pick diggin up worms and climbing tree in her backyard rather than goin shopping at a mall. tomboys tend to hang out and get along with boys rather than fellow girls. tomboys usually get this way from hanging out with brothers/neighborhood boys and their friends or being raised by brothers or males figures of the family. a stereotypical tomboy wears no makeup or jewelry, wears jeans, baseball caps, has scraggly hair, etc. this is not neccesarily true, as many tomboys wear girl stuff. they just dont care what other girls or people think of them. a tomboy who wears girl stuff usual does not cooperate with "normal" girl activities and due stuff that they like to do.

despite hangin out mainly with boys, a large number of boys find tomboys attractive. jealous preppy girls usually get jealous and try to spread rumors that tomboys are lesbians, but in all actuality, its the preppy slut who looses because tomboys dont care SHIT about what other think of them and the guys still like them! ;P

indeed, tomboys are the true individuals of society.
i am a classic example of a tomboy. i had no sister my age, my mom was always working when i was younger and there were no girls my age in my neighborhood, so i grew up hanging out with my older brother, his friends and my dad. i grew up a tomboy. im 17 now, and i wear girly stuff, but i still have my tomboyish traits. i like spendin lots of time outside, i spend half my time on the computer, playing video games, watching tv, im not afraid to pick up bugs or of getting dirty in the mud, and i wear jeans the majority of the time. i dont get along with most girls. all they do is listen to rap music, groggle at boys, spend money on clothes and other stupid stuff. i may be the outcast of my class, but i do stuff my own way and im proud to be different and- proud to be a tomboy. ;

Tomboy refers to a female whose behavior is free from the restriction of unwritten societal gender rules. She doesn't think she is being boyish or girlish, she is being herself. It is hopefully considered an old-fashioned term. I've always been called a tomboy and I hear it when I do something that requires physical strength or when I'm playing and don't mind getting dirty or injured if that goes with the game. I am heterosexual by instinct and choice. Tomboys are usually willing to fight if necessary & tend to be fearless though not stupid in that respect. They are intolerant of bullies and tend to step in to balance uneven situations. Warrior-like in an honorable way.
Joe: "Brigit jumped right in the middle of that fight to help Ben! She's 50 and such a sexy woman, I wasn't expecting that."

Mike: "She's what you older guys call a tomboy. Really, she's being herself and happens to be a person who's willing to fight."
