I think the only reason I started a career in Scala is one day writing Java I got bored of writing for-loops and started inventing my own collection wrappers that did filtering / mapping etc. (this was long before Google Guava came along). Then some years later I discovered Scala and picked it up rather quickly. I’ve been doing that for a few years now and I haven’t written a single loop of any kind, I haven’t had any need to!
