I am a vegan and spend a lot of time with Really Hard Core Vegans (as opposed to the feeble kind who fall off the wagon occasionally and aren't all that fussy about honey, like me) and I have never heard of carob as a "healthier... [more]

Daiya is - for certain applications - a really excellent cheese substitute. The shreds make a superlative childhood-type grilled American cheese sandwich - add some thin-sliced tomato or avocado and some mayo or mustard. It also works pretty well... [more]

Being visibly "checked out" does not always mean what you think it means, either - I've noticed that since I cut my hair and started dressing in a dapper, sort of effeminate-butch manner I've started to get lots of checking-out-like... [more]

I'm also noticing that the boyfriend makes a lot more money than the OP. I'm not sure how that fits in, but it would add an extra emotional thing for me if someone had a lot more money than I did, talked about how they wanted to buy me gifts and... [more]

I find it hurtful that I am being accused of faux-innocence and I wonder if I could have asked this in any way that would not elicit that reaction. It is precisely because I have not had a terribly privileged background that it is difficult for me... [more]

I know this is marked "answered", but I did want to ask - are you confident that you can get him to leave? What is your social/legal support system like there? Are you living in university housing? I say this because when I worked in Asia... [more]

Oh hey, I went through a couple of years of super-intense hypochondria years ago and have (mostly) recovered. I do not take any meds, although I took Wellbutrin for one month back then and experienced a helpful placebo effect. Yes, it was really,... [more]

This sounds like you don't really want to block her on Facebook, because it would be a painful final thing to do and because hey, what if she doesn't notice? (You're not saying, for example, that she would flip out on you and make the... [more]

Is it poor form to comment after the post has been marked "answered"? I've been thinking about this post since before it was checked off, does that count? To me, there's nothing wrong with being sincerely serious or earnest (as it were).... [more]

Yes, you should break up with him. Although the whole thing is so weird that I almost suspect either neurological causes or cheating-and-looking-for-an-excuse. Because no, it is not normal or appropriate to tell someone that you will come and help... [more]

Does she know what steps she'd need to take to get it hosted elsewhere? If she doesn't, she may be so uneasy about what it would entail that she's letting herself keep putting it off. I've found that I do this kind of thing. If she plausibly... [more]

This is why I refer to groups as "folks" or "you-all", ie "those folks over there had some extra plates" or "hey, do you-all have any more spoons?" I also use a gender neutral singular "they" if it's... [more]

Read (and I'm on my way out the door, so I leave teh googles to you) the blogs Put This On, A Suitable Wardrobe, Men's Flair, Permanent Style and Most Exerent (yep, like that) until you have a lively sense of what suits you might like - especially if... [more]

Think about this alpha-nerd-who-doesn't-want-you thing. That may be your problem right there - or at least it was my problem. I have this thing, see, for mean intellectuals. Historically, mean intellectuals do not want me but are happy to... [more]

I will continue, I guess. Square toes were popular in the mid-nineties in both the US and Europe. I suspect it was part of the mod/minimalism of the nineties, when shape took precedence over detailing. Also, it was part of the seventies revival of... [more]

Also, have you read Moving Toward the Ugly: A Politic Beyond Desirability? It's orthogonal to your question, but it seems like the only answers that are likely to work are orthogonal. Perhaps the most relevant part is this: The... [more]

Here's a thing: at certain times of my life, I've been successful with a "Six days of the week are No [Thing] days but one day of the week is a [Thing] day". On Thing day, I buy only so much Thing as I can reasonably consume that day,... [more]

Personally? I'd really accept that in my region/market you're not getting the treatment that you should, and resolve to do a little educating as part of getting what you want. Ask for the specials, ask for the menu. And if you're offered a table... [more]

(I want to add that the unconscious is not the "truth" of the personality. We often talk about unconscious impulses as if they reveal something truer and more meaningful than the conscious ones - "oh, you unconsciously want to [do X],... [more]

I don't know - it seems like there's a tidal wave of "figure out your dealbreakers early on because they are deep-seated, immutable and essential to your character; then break up even if you're happy and move on to search for the partner who's... [more]
