    Default Do you have fomo?

    perhaps it's easy to associate envy & "grass is greener" mentality w/ fomo. also, fomo isn't necessarily linked to social media, social media just makes it obvious & amplifies it. fomo isn't new.

    I would like an extra choice like "other" as I am too lazy to read all this bunch of possibilities.

    Retrospective fomo, perhaps.

    It still feels a lot like fear and not just regret, for some reason.
