What does fauci-ing mean?

Not dating a person because of covid

Fauci-ing is when a person rejects a romantic partner because they aren't being cautious about the covid pandemic. For example, the prospective partner may be an anti-vaxxer or an anti-masker, which doesn't sit well with the other person.

Dating in the covid pandemic is a wild ride. Not only are people looking for someone they find attractive physically and personality-wise, they are also looking for a person that is pandemic-like-minded.

For some, it is a dealbreaker if the prospective partner does not respect the guidelines outlined by Dr. Fauci and the CDC. The "Plenty of Fish" dating app coined "Fauci-ing" to label this trend of filtering romantic candidates in November 2020.
