Says you. The internet says there are tons of horny milfs in my area.

Is FODA stronger than IRNTGL tho?
(I really need to get laid)

I was an undateable creep before the pandemic so 🤷🏻♂

I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say bullshiat.
Dating leads to farking, and everyone likes to fark... right?

It's not FODA, it's FOD-YOU

I know I'm in the minority, but you'd be wrong in assuming that.

A friend of mine is dating again after a breakup about a year ago.

"Well, I saw him last night and there might have been kissing ..."

"He's in your bubble then?"

"We've decided to start dating without a mask."

That's a sentence I wouldn't have been able to dream up a year ago.

You clearly don't hang out with ugly people.

Are people with FODA afraid of getting told to FOAD?

The world resembles Demolition Man more and more every day.

Is it mandatory or optional?  Serious question.  Many seem to think it's a need, which it might be for some people.

As someone whose last date was sometime in the 70s, I can say without hesitation that the pandemic has not impacted my dating life.

My fears have nothing to do with a pandemic. It's fear of ever trusting another man again.
 
2021-01-22 11:26:47 AM  
Here at Fark many of us have dealt with the problem by never fearing dating again.

I had a strong aversion to dating well before the pandemic, Subby.
 
2021-01-22 12:18:25 PM  
I've been married 25 years. The idea of doing the whole dating thing ever again scares the hell out of me.

/The last time I was single, most people didn't have cell phones or know what the internet was
 
2021-01-22 12:56:15 PM  
Well, since everyone is out of practice now, my inept dating skills won't seem so obvious!
 
2021-01-22 1:13:16 PM  
You're older, uglier, and 20 40 60 80 pounds heavier. What could go wrong?

I've never had an actual, real date.

But I started in the '70s, so that probably warped my view of things.

For the first time in my life I'm actually focusing on my career, so dating isn't really in the cards at the moment. But if I were sanitation would be the first hurdle; you can tell a lot about a person by how they open a door.

I admit I have a bad case of FODA right now.

farking
Over
Dumbass
Acronyms
 
2021-01-22 6:56:18 PM  
10% of the men are doing 90% of the farking.

Be attractive.

Don't be unattractive.

/case closed.  Let's move on.
 
2021-01-22 7:11:24 PM  
What do you mean, 'again'?
 
2021-01-22 9:46:15 PM  
In Portuguese, FODA is the third-person conjugation of the verb F*CK.

Their choice of acronyms is just slightly ironic.

Pandemic? I've lived with this for the last ten years.
 
2021-01-23 3:13:31 PM  
It's gonna be great when things hit a normalcy level where the farking can begin again.
So much pent-up horniness will be exploding that it's worth it to stay alive now.

FODA + FERDA = Proud Boys

Pardon my ignorance, but what's does "FERDA" mean? (And yes, I've Googled it without getting any relevant results)
