I'm introducing a new word into my slang vernacular, filibuster

A while back I posted a bunch of words/phrases that I use all the time. I somehow left prexactly (precisely + exactly) off that list and I now need to add "filibuster" to that list.

Filibuster is defined as:
"The use of irregular or obstructive tactics by a member of a legislative assembly to prevent the adoption of a measure generally favored or to force a decision against the will of the majority." (source: Dictionary.com)

"A filibuster is a type of parliamentary procedure where an individual extends debate, allowing a lone member to delay or entirely prevent a vote on a given proposal. It is commonly referred to as talking out a bill,[1] and characterized as a form of obstruction in a legislature or other decision-making body." (source: Wikipedia.com)
The main part of both of those definitions that I'm focusing on in my usage of the term is "obstructive" and "prevent".

With that in mind henceforth I will be referring to the following type of person as a FILIBUSTER.
  1. The girl that tries ridiculously hard to be one of the guys so that she can get some attention from (you guessed it) one (or more) of the guys. Then when she realizes that none of the guys are interested in her, she becomes the passive female "friend" that's a c*ckblock. Get out of here with that and go grab some self-esteem and a side of female friends. This is usually the same girl that makes sure she has one or two friends with her that are cuter than her so she can get some attention indirectly. We've been hip to you, you FILIBUSTER!
  2. The guy that always has something negative to say about every girl because he fell in love with the wrong chick years ago, got his feelings all destroyed nshyt, and still has not gotten over it. Look dude, if it was more than a year ago, the statute of limitations on your hatred and vitriol has passed. Let that mess go and do what most people do, go find a girl that's the exact opposite of the one you were dealing with and realize that that's not good for you either. But don't sit around hating on every girl just because she doesn't think your knowledge of football fun facts, prodding questions of prejudgement, and aura of "I'm still salty about my ex" is something she'd like to have more of. Have some pride why don't you, you FILIBUSTER!

Ok, I'm done.

There are no words. At first, I was having a hard time imagining this word used as slang, considering actually witnessing a filiuster on the Congress floor is CLASSIC! But your two examples are awesome! That's too funny Mike.
