A "raver" is one who goes to raves. Contrary to popular belief, there are many different types of ravers.

First there are Candy Ravers; these are the ones you see running around shouting things like "PLUR!" or "Want a hug/sucker/glowstick/massage?" They are identifiable by their brightly colored clothing (phat pants being a must...if they're made of fun fur, all the better), enough Candy (brightly colored bead bracelets)to sink the Titanic, oodles of children's toys, as well as a few glowsticks and pacifiers. Candy kids are known as the cutest/most annoying people you will ever meet. A lot of them are pretty fake - it's impossible to be that happy all the time. Candy Kids are also notorious for being users of the drug Ecstasy - this is not entirely accurate, but with the way they dress and act, its not hard to see why this is assumed.

Next we have the "Goth" ravers. They're quite easy to spot - they will be dressed in all black, preferably incorperating some fishnet, spikes, and buckles into their outfits. The more there are the better. They will not socialize outside of the group they came with, and they will NEVER under any circumstances dance. They're too goth for that - dancing equates to happiness and celebration, and that's just not cool.

Ginos and Ginas (also known as "hoochies"). These are those well-dressed, snooty people that really shouldn't even be at a rave. The only reason they're at the party is to pick up on some 15 year old e-tard. Well, maybe not, but they certainly are only at the party to get a piece of ass. They will be dressed in whatever is "trendy" and do not know how to dance.

Next are junglists. Junglists are often viewed as being "agro". They listen primarily to Jungle/DnB music, and are partial to camo, hoodies, and clothing in dark colors. Popular junglist hairstyles are dreads (m+f), short hair (m+f), or short with two long bits in the front (f). Quite a few junglists are ex-candy ravers. They may also be "old-skool" or "jaded".

Old-skool and jaded pretty much fall into the same category. Old-skoolers are ravers who have been in the scene since "way back in the day". No matter how good the party is, the music/DJs/parties/drugs/people/anything else about the scene was WAY better when they first started raving. A jaded raver is not nessicarily old skool, but shares the same views as the old skooler.

And even still there are many ravers that do not fall into any of these categories. So...perhaps a raver is simply one who goes to parties to dance the night away, and loves the music. Interesting concept, hey?

And we all thought it was about the drugs. *sarcasm*
Rave is no longer a dirty 4-letter word. It's okay to be a raver. :)

There are many types of ravers.
Candy kids are the most popular ( atleast where I am from ). These people claim to believe in plur. Most of the girls are very unoriginal, folling popular fashion trands, such as tu-tu's. Most go to EVERY rave possible, regardless of what music is gonna be played. Most of them can get pretty annoying at times and are the main cause for drama in the rave scene. They are usaully using ecstasy and the girls go wearing the most revealing outfits possible. Watch out for the slutty candy kids, because they are usually rolling ( or just slutty ), and hook up with random guys at raves at any given time. They are not concerned as to whether or not that guy has a girlfriend.
"OMG, i'm rolling so hard."
"That chick was such a raver."

Much like emos, goths and freaks, ravers are categorized as rejects as well. They find that by wearing odd, brightly colored, carebear costumes they're expressing their creativity, diversity, and juvinile foolishness. However, creativity and uniqueness is not defined as "the act of putting a bunch of ugly shit on and listening to shitty music". As a result their attempts at expressing diversity is a misled one as they are not creative, simply eccentric to the point that it is both unoriginal and disturbing (not in the badass way, disturbing in the "damn your annoying" way).

It is common knowledge that ravers are rejects of society and 'should-have-been-miscarriages'. Many people associate ravers with homosexuals. Ravers, however, simply give homosexuals a bad name and they simply take ever negative connotation of a homosexual and amplify it to the extent that you will find many homosexuals regarding ravers as "faggots".
John - "Why did that raver just shove his pacifier up his ass?"
Mary - "Don't make eye contact, John!"

A raver is someone who promotes that PLUR bullshit, which is totally fuking ridikulous. If you happen to befriend a raver, the relationship is doomed to fail due to selfishness on the ravers part. The total kollapse of industrial kounter kulture is fairly on the ravers shoulders. this is due to such promotions on the ravers part. Shouting about love, peace and fairness. Nothing about a raver is trustworthy, and your better off not having tried to befriend them. A raver isnt a human. Thats the best definition.
Erik: i'm depressed. My raver left me, it seems like i've got nothin left. I feel like shit.

Markus: Don't worry, everything will get better, after all, hes just a raver man, its gonna be all right, but I did warn you.

A term used to describe a person (mainly a Generation Xer) who took part in the underground electronic music scene of the early-to-mid 1990s that became extremely commercialized and eventually died out at the end of the last century.
A number of teenagers and twentysomethings who were too young to attend raves back then now go around calling themselves "ravers" and listen to electronic music thinking that the rave scene is still flourising.

PLUR (Peace, Love, Unity, and Respect). I don't know about the peace, but the Love, Unity, and Respect is conditional. You'll only get those three if you are a) Under 20, b) Strung out on opiates, amphetamines, designer drugs, c) Follow the strict dress code of skimpy 'ironic' shirts, and huge ass pants. Otherwise, a waste of time and bears no similarity to real raves from 1985-1991.
Those ravers think music didn't exist before 1997.
