  1. It always sucks, even when you know it's for the best. What I do when it hurts is to remind myself of the reasons to break up and have faith that with time the pain will fade. That's awful, I guess it's better late than never?
  2. I guess if you don't know if you are in love, it's because you aren't... That's the theory, in practice, when I'm in a great relationship, despite knowing there's something missing... I keep trying to delude myself into believing I might be in love.
  3. With welfarist measures I meant exactly what RachelSomething understood. ...... added to this post 3 minutes later: The job of the bullfighter or the pleasure of the people watching it does not justify it. The example of the murderer makes it easier to understand. ...... added to this post 26 minutes later: Allow me to summarize. For what I read, most people are not troubled by the fact that they are against bullfighting but they still eat meat. That's because in their minds bullfighting is only for pleasure, but.... eating animal products is not for pleasure too? (I'm talking about nowadays, in developed countries).
  4. Gladiators were a tradition and people enjoyed it, traditions change and society needs to evolve. People will always find other sources of pleasure, but in any case, pleasure should never be above ethics. Furthermore, abuse must be rooted out, simple welfarist measures would only normalize it.
  5. No need to eat animal products anymore, this is the 21st century, at least for developed countries. Veganism is a life style that embraces more than a diet, it rejects any form of discrimination and violence towards human and non-human animals. This is just placing your pleasure over your ethics. The fact that there are other bad things in the world that could even be worse, doesn't make bullfighting more right. Would human slavery be alright if slaves would have better conditions?
  6. I sense sarcasm in your post... but could you develop a bit more why would you need to do something and why particularly those things?
  7. I always try to remain calm and inexpressive but my face betrays me and it's obvious that something is bothering me. If I find myself with people with whom I can't reason and their behaviour is directly affecting me, I would try to be strong and confront them. Last step if nothing works, would be to cry and walk away, if possible the other way around so they can't see me cry xD I don't deal well with confrontation and arguments, they really affect me.
  8. More valuable for what? Both should have intrinsic value simply because we are living beings able to feel joy and pain and just for that, the lives of all sentient beings should be equally respected. Before pondering what is more valuable to one self, the planet or business, I would first consider the ethical aspect of it.
  9. I'm not lonely but I'm not sure I have real good friends whom I admire and trust, so it would be great to get to know other people with similar thought processes. During the last few years I started to know myself better and it's great to know there is nothing wrong with me if I don't want to feel and interact the same way as most of the people around me do. This even helped me socially, since I can joke about my behaviour as a way of doing what I want without looking unsociable. Let's see how it goes :)
  10. It seems reasonable to upload pictures that would attract only the kind of person you are interested in (and willing to deal with the real you!), If you upload pictures of a very good-looking and sexy you, then of course you will have a high rate of response but probably not from the ones you want.
  11. Always focus on your self-growth
  12. It's understandable that we would save a human over an animal life but just because we are human and we can identify more with other human beings, not because our lives are more valuable. The same would happen if you had to pick between a relative of yours and a complete stranger, and that doesn't mean that the stranger's live is not equally valuable. All humans and animals want to be free from harm and suffering to the same extent, treating animals as commodities and killing them should be as repulsive as enslaving and killing people.
