A pessimistic person
Stop being such an Eeyore and imagine, for a second, that my idea might work.
|Gloomer||An apathetic 20-something|
|Doomer||A person who focuses on negative possibilities|
|HML||Hate my life|
|IDFC||I don't freaking care|
If you've been called an Eeyore, it means the person you're talking to thinks you're pessimistic, sad, and/or grumpy. This slang term is pulled from the wonderful world of Winnie the Pooh, in which Eeyore is the name of the Hundred Acre Wood's resident depressed donkey.
Generally, being called an Eeyore is not a compliment. However, in addition to thinking Eeyore is a bit gloomy, some also consider him cute. So you might at least have that going for you (and if you do, cheer up).
What is the opposite of an Eeyore?
Less commonly, people who refer to glum chums as Eeyores may also refer to glad lads as Tiggers. In Winnie the Pooh, Tigger is a stuffed tiger who is Eeyore's dispositional opposite.
