Mensagem:  Well..... when you want to have a relationship and it's not there you can say "life is just a bore" or "life is so boring, I don't have any romance at all" when you don't have an ongoing relationship and you are looking for one you often hear "I'm footloose and fancy free." which means your feet are free to take you wherever you want and you don't have any specific desires....you will try a blonde, brunette, redhead, athelete, geek, bodybuilder, etc....no particular goal in mind....take whatever comes along. The word fancy comes from the expressions about having things that meet one's fancy (fancy in this case is not fantasia or imaginação but capricho, desejo, preferência, inclinação, afeição, etc). I hope this helps, Tom
