comment Word for “only caring about oneself ”
Similarly, you could be self-centered without being shallow. Some people obsess over deeper topics (such as your own personal spiritual/emotional goals or life's plan) while remaining steadfastly self-centered. I think the combination of shallow and self-centered works well to convey the person in question.

comment What expression would be the opposite of “Deal Breaker”?
I came to suggest "seals the deal", but you have already done so in a well-reasoned fashion. Have an upvote.

comment You quench your thirst. What do you do with your hunger?
@snumpy In the end, satisfy actually seems like the best word if you're talking about hunger going away instead of being postponed. Snickers even uses it as their ad campaign. From Snickers.com: "Snickers means hunger satisfaction".

comment You quench your thirst. What do you do with your hunger?
@JohnIsaacks "Feed your hunger" doesn't necessarily imply that the hunger is gone when you have finished, does it? This sentence is an example of what I'm thinking: "The puny hors d'oeuvres served at the event only served to feed his hunger, forcing him to stop at 'Steak and Shake' on the way home."

comment Is there a phrase to say that someone's hidden intentions are revealed in his/her talk or movements?
You're right. It doesn't quite work the same without adding the "stated" context.

comment “Nothing to tell” versus “nothing to say”
@GaretClaborn Yes, a much more appropriate response would have been "I go to Area51 all the time. StackExchange is awesome! Please visit and support my suggestion of a Narwhal-related Q and A site!"

You're right. I'll changed "true" to "stated" to correctly cover the meaning.
