The Brief: Simping is when a boy or man becomes so fond of a girl or woman that they start to act differently from their normal behavior to appeal to that person's romantic needs and expectations.


Simping is commonly called out by other men who believe their male friend is acting too soft or too infatuated with another person. Similar to a Simp, simping is when someone allows their new fondness for someone else to shift their perspective or focus from everything else except for their partner. Emotional tendencies associated with simping are being over-emotional and/or sentimental because of how vulnerable their newfound lover has made them.

Drake is known for his Simping music that tends to get people in their feels because of how emotional his lyrics can be and transparent his thoughts are.
