Dear Al A Carte,

I have been living in a big city for the last several years. I like it and want to stay, but neither great opportunity nor love comes my way.

Do you think l should return home?

Drain salmon. Place in a medium-sized bowl, and flake. Shred or chop egg whites and add to the bowl. Add remaining ingredients. Season to taste. Mix until blended.

Try doing things differently in order to change your present situation.
Check out Meetup.com for local events and ask friends about other groups you can join. Consider taking up a sport or signing up for a class.
Be out there. Then you can make a more educated decision.
