I'm not sure what you said there liangzai, but I think I like it.
Anyway, as for the word "f---" being used everywhere, yes it can fit in MANY situations, but with certain people/groups/ages. My father would never say it, he barely curses at all. I would never say it in front of my parents or other elders, I would NEVER EVER say it around children that aren't mine, or even in public in a store or whatever. For me, once in a while it "slips out", like if I bump myself and it hurts really badly, or I drop something & it spills or breaks.... I've said it in front of my son a few times now that he's a teenager - not on purpose, but it's not like he's so little anymore that he's going to mindlessly copy me. He knows what words to say or not say by now.
And he doesn't curse, or like it when other people do a lot... maybe because I didn't around him.
Basically, although this doesn't make sense, my best advice is this:
If someone says it to you or near you, don't take it personally, just let it go.
At the same time, don't bother using it, there's really no need. No one will think less of you for not using it. (unless your friends are some bizarre little teenagers who think it's cool)
