Adomen [adomen]

Back by popular demand, the etymology of dating series..

Now this is an interesting word, it doesn't live within any dictionary you're likely to read, but for most of the female gender population, it is highly likely that you have encountered one of these specimens.

Often discovered after dark, rarely found in daylight.

Adomen lived out their mid-twenties jumping from one spliff to the next, from paycheque to paycheque, emptying out their overdrafts until they’re -0 again. They show up to parties uninvited because a friend of a friend met the host once in an overpriced London bar. It is here where the adomen will drink your gin, and smoke your marijuana.

They assume their lifestyle is completely irresistable to the you, and have no issues showing you their true selves, because you’ll be dazzled by their lifestyle, wanting your own piece of broken-ass pie. Adomen live in small caves that usually look like rooms, but you’ll know when you’re in a cave by the yellow-stained walls, broken vinyl records, and pizza stains on their unwashed bedding.

Pronunciation: aa-do-men
