Saying that sex is not all that important is the same as buying a lottery ticket and saying winning is not all that important.
Each person knows what they want more than the people who downplay what that person wants. Sex is a better reason than finances to enter or stay in a relationship.

I’m sure he was making fun about just the sex. There are probably other things he likes about her.

You have other posts complaining about this woman. I’m wondering if while your head or heart wants to patch things up and live happily ever after, your heart or head is telling you to just cut the cord. It’s not really about being vegetarian or mounted heads on the wall.

In either case, sex or the lottery, it may come down to desperation.

There are always options.

I expect he's just someone trying to help out HT viewer count. After all, look at the views and number of replies on his spate of posts and compare those numbers to the average post after that many hours. Maybe, like the rest of us, he is getting paid to post(although we're not being paid by ownership, if so, I don't know, it's just a deposit every "good" thread.)

I think it depends on her age. If she is still in her growing years, then I would not recommend going vegan. It is just too hard to get enough protein. Suggest she waits until she's out of school.
As to your trophy heads, that is none of her business. They are not food.

Its tough not to get enough protein if you get enough calories. Meaning calories from real food (as unprocessed as possible), not candy or modern immitation engineered food from a factory.

The real danger of vegan diet is that it tends to be grain based and overly high in carbohydrates. Guess what, carbs turn to sugar. Also your body tends not to send the "hey stupid stop eating I'm full" signal as rapidly with heavy carb diet.

You can eat a relatively low carb vegan diet, but its not easy. Basically lot fresh non-starchy, non-sugary produce and natural fats/proteins from nuts and oily seeds. Yea nobody said it would be cheap (unless you have your own year round garden) and its nearly impossible to try and find low carb meal when eating out, carbs are cheap and highly profitable. Even meat usually is breaded or has some sugary glaze or sauce on it.

When I married my first wife she told me she didn't like fish. I said OK I'll cook my own fish and she won't have to eat any and I continued fishing.

A few months later she told me she didn't like the smell of fish when I cooked it. I thought OK I'll just cook it when you're not around and I continued fishing.

A few more moths passed and she complained about the fish smell when I cooked and she wasn't home. Said it lingered in the house. So I decided to only cook fish outside or when I was camping and I continued fishing.

Then she complained about the smell of fish on my clothes so I quit cooking fish but continued fishing but as catch and release.

Then she complained about the time I spent fishing but wasn't bringing home. Told her I was caching just not bring them home. I continued fishing.

Then she complained about how cruel I was to the poor fishing. So I gave up fishing.

Then a few years later she wanted a divorce because I was no longer the man she married or wanted. Of course not I changed for her but she didn't realize what that meant.

Just to give you an idea as to what's ahead.

That's funny White Wolf! I always tell women if they want to change something about their man, he's not the right man. I shopped until I found the one I wanted without any changes. 42 years later he still floats my boat!

If what this guy is looking for is good sex, go hire it. You can get what you want, when you want, how you want, and without having to please or impress anyone. Then go home to your antlers and eat a big juicy steak while watching football and drinking beer in your underwear and no one cares. If what you secretly want is someone to care about you and spend time with you, this is not your gal!

Hi. I'm a vegan. Here's my take:

First and foremost, if you're not sure this is to be a long-term relationship, I think you should stand your ground. Yes. I am telling you this as a VEGAN. Veganism is not just a diet. For many of us, it is a LIFESTYLE. I don't feel that someone in whom you're not particularly invested for the long haul is someone who should be calling the shots in your life. I would ask you to be RESPECTFUL of her, but I would not change your whole life for her.

For SOME vegans (I'm one of these,) the lifestyle means NO animal products, PERIOD. I don't eat them. I don't keep livestock even to sell eggs and milk but not meat. I don't play sports that involve them (hunting, etc. I used to ride horses, but I don't now, because I can't afford it. I probably would if I could. I don't consider riding horses to be counter to my lifestyle, personally.) For the most part, I don't wear them. I have an issue with shoes, because I have extremely narrow feet, and finding non-leather shoes that are narrow enough is hard, so I compromise by buying my shoes secondhand. I also have dogs and cats, which are animals who eat meat. Giving them up is not an option. I work very hard to do everything I do with an eye to compassion for animals, but some other vegans would say I'm "not vegan enough." They can go take a hike.

It's late, and I'm tired, so I'm aware I have rambled, so let me try to sum up.

If this was a woman you were considering making a permanent part of your life, I might be inclined to agree with her, that you should maybe respect her wishes to not have the trophies in the spaces where she might want to hang out. It does not look to me, though, like you have that as a goal (being with her for the long haul and building a life together.) You are the primary breadwinner, and I'm assuming (even though that's not a good idea, usually) that you are the homeowner and she is not. Therefore, I'd say don't take any measures to put your trophies away. If things change in the future, you guys might discuss what to do then, but for now, do what you do. Just maybe don't invite her to go hunting with you. LOL!

I hope I've made some sense.

Right. The best vegan diet is a raw one. I'm moving that way, but it's going to be a LOOOOOONG journey.

I see where the OP is now showing as banned. I hope it's not because of the specious accusation of being stickywitch. After all, I've seen at least 200 people accused of being stickywitch. Some may have been accused of being stickywitch by stickywitch. Musta been a whole lot of people admire and follow her closely to still be talking about her.

It's too bad. I'd gotten to where I started looking for his posts.
