I keep hearing from several websites and videos that Fluorine seems to like bonding to Calcium specifically; can someone please tell me why? I can't seem to find a clear response on the internet. Fluorine has a high affinity to Calcium, more than other elements. Why is that?
Actually it's not the question of affinity but insolubility of CaF2. As this salt has solubility product of ~4×10−11 which is mostly caused by nice packing and strong ionic interaction (see enter link description here)
