Baak

noun · General, Kankana-ey

Baak is an elderly or aging person who has never been and seems unlikely to get married.

Childless and not necessarily a virgin.

I tried to find the equivalent English term/s for the word. Anyway...

= Spinster (women)
= Bachelor (men) or "Bachelor for Life"

Example

That guy is going to end up as a "baak" with only his dog by his side. That poor thing... I'm afraid his pet will have to bury him when he dies.
