    to feel like for a ...

    The only usage I know is "to feel like for a girl/boy"

    Are there any other usages of this phrase?

    Does it always have sexual meaning?

    I feel like a schoolboy again!
    What does it feel like for a girl to be dumped?

    Re: to feel like for a ...

    I need to rephrase this, my bad. Here is what I'm trying to understand: you can say "Do you feel like for a little ride?", which I assume means that you ask somebody if they would like to (have a) ride.

    Will it make any sense if I say: "Do you feel like for a ice cream?" or "Do you feel like for a girl?"

    To express a yen for something, you don't need for.

    Do you feel like an ice cream? is correct. Similarly Do you feel like going out? is fine.

    Doesn't it sound like I actually feel like I am an ice cream? Not like I want one.

    Also, "Do you feel like for a little ride?" is a real quote, so are you saying it's not grammatically correct?

    1. Yes, it does sound like that, but it is a very common expression and people are not really confused by it. There is a silly joke:

    A wants an ice cream.

    A: I feel like an ice cream.
    B: That's funny, you don't look like one.

    But as I said, that is just a silly joke. People are not really confused.

    2. Where is the quote from? It sounds wrong to me.

    "Do you feel like for a little ride?"

    My first thought is that a word is missing: "Do you feel like going for a little ride?", so perhaps the mistake is in the typesetting/proofreading.
