Acronym form: ADD.
A much-debated psychological disorder characterized by a constant need to switch activities and/or hyperactivity.

Contrary to popular belief, ADD is a real disorder, and there are people who actually benefit from ritalin. Unfortunately, a lot of normal people with short attention spans claim to have ADD in order to attract sympathy. A good way to differentiate someone with ADD: people with ADD can't sit still for long even when they're doing something they like, they constantly fidget with their hands (I mean CONSTANTLY), and they don't go around telling everyone they meet that they have ADD.
Person with short attention span: "Hey, show me some respect! I have ADD, you know!"

Person with ADD: "Sorry, I'm getting kind of bored already. I guess I just have a short attention span."

Attention Deficit Disorder, or ADD is a psychological term currently applied to anyone who meets the DSM IV diagnostic criteria for impulsivity, and/or inattention. The diagnostic criteria are subjective and include behavior which might be caused by a wide variety of factors, ranging from brain defects to allergies to giftedness. ADD, as currently defined, is a highly subjective description, not a specific disease.

While the term ADD, or attention-deficit disorder, has become increasingly popular among laypersons, BADD, or Boy attention-deficit disorder is a lesser known variant. It is a clinically diagnosed disorder characterized by inattention to girls including little interest in pursuing friendships with them, hyperactivity around boys, and impulsiveness towards boys (both sexual and non-sexual).

As with all disorders there are differing symptoms among sufferers which also may include;
Having several 'crushes' and/or 'seeing' seeing several different boys concurrently, Seeing boys as objects and thus "collectible" and craving male attention.

Note: Sufferers behaviors can be seen as more socially acceptable than sluts as their behaviors are not always sexual, however general consensus is that featured behaviors are on a par with that of sexual sluts due to emotional impact on boys that may unknowingly get involved.

Etiology - can be several contributing factors.

The phenomenon that starts approximately 8 minutes after first tucking into a curry, after the initial taste begins to wear off, you've tried all dishes on the table, and you're left with an increasingly lukewarm curry with the oil separating out around the edge.

Once started, CADD generally lasts as long as it takes to mindlessly nibble away the last bit of greasy naan in a zombie like state.

CADD is generally induced by excessive beer consumption reacting against the absorbent naan in stomach and can only be cured by getting the bill and moving on to shots until the volume in stomach subsides.

Some people are seemingly immune to CADD and continue to behave in a buzzard-like manner, picking up all scraps from the dishes and other people's plates until the last bit of cold, greasy naan has been devoured.
