What does thirsty mean?

Desiring a person

Thirsty is a term that refers to when a person desires another person, meaning he or she likes the person romantically. The desire can be as strong as a person's thirst for water, which is where the term originates.

The term is somewhat negative since it is used to describe a person who is desperate to date another person. Many thirsty people can be found at a bar or a club, which is known as a "watering hole" for those looking to HU with others.
