As many of you already know, there have been some very severe contagious outbreaks of FOMO over the last few years. This disease has really come out of nowhere, to now affecting every major race in the world.
For those who have never heard of this disease let me take a few minutes to describe the symptoms.
FOMO, or Fear Of Missing Out, is generally noticed when someone has trouble being by themselves. If you ever come home to find your family uber excited to see you, this could be one fo the first telling signs.
Other symptoms include:
not going to the bathroom
starting a blog
always running events and inviting other people
and most importantly.......being broke because he spends all his money doing every possible activity that his friends are doing.
This fear of missing the best event ever, sometimes can drive a man insane. Imagine being super sick, but one of your friends is having a party. not only that but you look on facebook and a girl you think is cute is going to be there. So here are your 2 options.
A. you go to the party. sick the whole time. dont even get a chance to flirt with the cute girl and come back dissapointed.
B. stay home, going crazy that you may be missing the ebst aprty ever, thinking that your best friend is hooking up with the girl and now your pissed off.
So you see no matter what you decide, the affects of FOMO will always destroy your night.
Some cures that have been tried are alcohol and drugs. These seem to work as an immediate cause but have thier fair share of side effects. Please refrain from taking more than 6 doses within a 24 hour period, and if the symptoms do not stop, please see a doctor immediatly.
Now lately there has been a new term coined.
The Blitz. Yes this is from HIMYM, but it really sums up FOMO perfectly. It proves to us that in fact if you do leave, then you will miss out on the most amazing nights ever.
However, I believe that I may have discovered a solution.
Think about the last time one of your married friends couldnt make it to one of your parties. Do you think they were actually feeling the affects of FOMO. I doubt it. Now think about if they have kids, even more so. Why do they need to get together with thier friends, they have all they can ask for in thier apt.
Now, everyone must take a minute and think about the consequenes though,
Is getting married actually worth getting rid of this disease. Think about it, your life is over, you wont be having any fun anymore and you wont even care what fun your friends are having.
We must all think about this dillema deeply before making a true decision.
Personally, I am just hoping our doctors can find another cure before I must make my decision.
