Half my losses are forfeits.

The ability to speak does not make you a competent debater.

Honestly, a lot of my forfeits are because I have important things in life I can't get too, but also a large portion of it is that I lose interest in boring topics and just say "f*ck it".

Yeah it is really annoying. My advice to you is to challenge active members of the site to debate you, because they rarely forfeit

This, or if you instigate a debate, set the criteria for a few debates. Conversely, beware those who instigate debates with zero debates.

I have found that a lot of people appear to join the site, think it's interesting, start a debate or five, then never log on again. On anyone's profile, you can see how many debates they have, when they joined DDO, and the last time they logged in.

Those that start a bunch of debates and never log on again may meet your criteria of, say, three debates, but chances are they won't log on again to accept.
My work here is, finally, done.
