thirsty (2)

adjective; derivation inherited derivation
extreme desire for something
 
The meaning of thirsty originally widened from 'craving liquid' to a general sense of ‘craving anything’. Nowadays, it can be used to describe a person’s desire for love or companionship. It is commonly used to describe a person who appears desperate for a romantic partner. It is used in the context of being desperate because a person who experiences physical thirst when his biological need for water is not met, is in dire need of water like a thirsty person is in desperate need for companionship or love. This term is used mostly by young adults.
Etymology : The word thirsty is derived by the root thirst + the adjective-forming suffix –y.
