What is a low life?
Lowlife is actually just one word – not two words. A lowlife is someone who spends most if not all of his or her time doing things that are considered immoral or bad. Whether it’s stealing, drugs, drinking, gambling, etc. – a lowlife is someone with very bad habits. Lowlifes also typically have other lowlife friends who engage in the same negative activities.
Example of “lowlife” in a sentence:
"He was a real lowlife, and often spent the entire day in a bar or doing drugs."
