Dear Anonymous,

Assuming you’re a Vegetarian by choice. What your girlfriend is trying to do here is shove her choices down your throat, in the form of chicken. While some may tell you this issue is not one to be bothered about, but it is. She’s trying to shove down her food choices on you today; tomorrow she will try to force other decisions on you.
There is no right way this will go down. You need to sit her down and ask her where her problems lie. If her actions have no particular reason, it’s best you tip-toe your way out of the relationship. However, if she can give you a substantial basis for her actions, and if she’s willing to change her behavior and respect your personal choices-give her another chance.
If none of those ways work, the next time you both go out- Order first, and stand your ground if she tries to force another chicken down your throat. There are a lot of Vegetarian restaurants available if she doesn’t change her attitude, feed her some Rajma Chawal and tell her to chill down.

Good luck!

Love,

The Brown Girl
