FODA, or Fear of Dying Alone, is a broad spectrum of symptoms experienced by females with onset typically in their mid- to late-twenties. As women become aware that they are aging, and their biological clock is running out, the become aware of the imminent decline of their youth and fear of potentially never acquiring a mate and thus dying alone, hence FODA. Early-onset FODA is a sub-diagnosis referring to FODA initiated at an even younger age due to the female's female friends entering long-term relationships while they remain single, making them think they are not desirable to males. FODA symptoms can include general dating and sexual desperation, such as pursuit of males outside of their typical standards, age range, or cultural predilections. Some warning signs are texting the day immediately following a defiling one-night stand with a stranger with whom little conversation was had. FODA theory was developed and first researched by Dr. Deus Calhoun after a series of field case studies. The DSM has yet to include it.
S. M., an anonymous case, hunted down the phone number of the previous night's analinguist regardless of not having even seen him in the dark room. Classic FODA.
