    I eat rice with chopsticks by smashing the rice down a little so that it sticks together more and then kind of scooping it up.

    I make a fool of myself when I try so I stick to a fork and knife.

    I wish I knew how to! Cannot seem to get the hang though! Maybe someday! Something to strive for!

    I'm pretty good with them, and if the rice is cooked correctly it shouldn't be too difficult to eat...

    My grandmother gave me two sets of chopsticks when I was like 16yrs old. I taught myself how to use them. One set is made out of mother of pearl and I cant even, 22 yrs later, bring myself to use them. They are way too pretty. And the other set is like a plastic type.

    I wouldn't describe myself as a 'master' but I can manage OK.

    The first time I tried it, my Taiwanese friend said I was a natural. By the end of the meal, only myself and Mr. Taiwan were still using the chopsticks. The rest of the boys just gave up and asked for forks.

    ^ I actually know a girl that had a friend that she was so close with she practically was another daughter in that family. That family was of another culture (forget which one), and did not use forks, they would eat with their hands. So, she ate that way too and it is really awkward for her to eat with a fork now. Most of the time if she's on her own she will just forgoe utensils and eat with her hands, but she will use the utensils in public b/c it is American custom and she realizes most people find it gross.

    I would starve to death if I was forced to rely on chopsticks. Strange, because I used to play flute & twirl baton, both of which require finger dexterity, but the chopsticks are a no go.

    I use them exclusively for eating asian food. For some reason, I have it in my head that eating REAL asian food with a fork and knife is barbaric and uncultured.

    it certainly seems that way, when you're stabbing and slicing things.

    LOL! I thought the same when I was first struggling with chopsticks. I'm great with them now but my boyfriend insists that I'm holding them wrong. He's probably right but I dont' see much of a difference between how I do it and how he does it and I get way less accidents than he does. Sometimes he gets so exasperated he spears the food with them, lol

    I feel like such a momo when i go for Japanese, they have to make me the "rookie" chopsticks - for those of us who don't know how to use them properly, the staff takes the sticks and wedges a piece of paper in between and secures them with a rubber band. Yeah, how cool do I feel when the only other people using them like that are the 6 year olds dining around me?
