But whenever someone tells me they're thinking of going veg*n I ask a million questions and solicit buttloads of advice. I mean to the point of making the other person uncomfortable, I'm sure.<br><br><br><br><br><br>
Is anyone else like this?

hahaha... um... well... i have been known to offer unrequested advice, and i have been informed on occasion that its perhaps on occasion slightly annoying to a person who might not have wanted to hear my indepth and epic lengthed attempts at wisdom. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/juggle.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":juggle:"><br><br><br><br>
but its all done in the spirit of support, and i'm aware of it, and i try and be selective with my interjections, self perceived insight, and comments. i do my best. incidently- its not just vegetarianism with me... its pretty much everything. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/blush.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":eek:"><br><br><br><br>
i do like to think though, that someone somewhere got something useful out of my blabbering- even if it was just something like 'Burgerking has a veggieburger' or that 'they make fake meats, and you can get them in the grocery store, you know!'. lol.<br><br><br><br>
but its a fine line, none the less- we wanna be supportive, but we don't wanna put potential converts off, or overwhelm them by bombarding them with info right away, right?

I always tell them things like what books they need to read and how to cook tofu so it doesn't taste like ass.

I've been veg*n for quite a while, and welcome all manner of questions. I love doing outreach, and table quite a bit in the spring/summer.

oh yeah. whenever anyone shows interest in veg*nism I end up talking to them for a while and give them some pamphlets to read and stuff. I just get really excited and maybe get a little carried away sometimes <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">
