Thread: Anyone else have FoMO?

  1. #1

    Default Anyone else have FoMO?

    So I often think of myself not really being a needy or materialistic type of person but I have come to realise that's probably the opposite from reality.

    I appreciate I have an addictive personality to things (comic books etc) but rather than just rush out and buy whatever takes my interest I find if I quantify what I am after and then wait a few weeks usually the desire dies down and I don't wind up with things I might just discard later.

    All that being said if the object of my desire at the time is of limited run and I might not be able to get what I am interested in I find I get a bit (lot) of a "fear of missing out" anxiety.

    Anyone else suffer from this?

    I have an addictive personality. It's a big reason why I never tried addictive drugs when I was in college. Unfortunately I did drink, and that continued heavily until I developed an ulcer and had to quit cold turkey. As a musician, I've bought a lot of music equipment, from various sound systems, to keyboards and sound modules. My latest desire is a Yamaha N1, which is quite expensive. The wife has already approved so I've been spending several days organizing all my music, stacking it into crates, just so I'll have a place to move my present 88 key keyboard so I'll have room for the Yamaha.

    So yeah, I get these things into my head and then I go crazy, thinking only about that one thing for weeks, months and even years until I get it. It was that way with the 88 key instrument which I bought in 1991, a Korg T 1. Even though it's old, it still has great sounds and I practice my piano pieces on it almost every day.

    I am definitely this way when it comes to Nintendo games and consoles. Of course, I can never afford them when they come out, so I'm always forced to wait.

    I knew there were more of us! Sorry though it is a bugger in reality.

    Do you mind if I ask, have you actually ever completely missed out or do you find after all the waiting you don't pick up the game/console?

    I've missed out on almost every product when it was still new, and I'm constantly waiting until I can afford it. I actually just bought and finished Super Mario Sunshine and Paper Mario a couple weeks ago.

    yeah, but no need for the insult



    i reckon that everybody gets the feeling at some point. I would've had it last week when, as our local DIY store is closing down, i popped in for a few bits before the end, except that their 'everything must go' prices where just bollocks and, even when cheaper than normal, still only the same as Amazon.
    the best deal i got from there was a couple of years ago, whilst idly mooching 'round the place: a Ryobi multi-tool kit (like Dremel) for 25. they normally retailed at 80 to 100, so even though i didn't really need one, i got one. well, you would, wouldn't you?
    they'd obviously changed their season lines and then found two of these tool-kits somewhere, buried under some other stuff. i've not even used it, yet (the old Dremel still keeps going ).

    I'm like this with certain things, LEGO, computer parts, chemistry lab/glass-ware, anime and Simpsons Tapped Out premium items (a couple thousand dollars worth of stuff ) and of course diapers... but all this has come to a grinding halt in the past few years.
