If everyone is all veg*n and that’s important to you, why do you cook/is it okay to cook meat for your partner/bf/gf?
I mean, if you cook veg*n meals for them all the time whenever they’re with you or eat only veg*n food, that’s no problem. But I’m saying to those of you that cook MEAT for you partner; why is that okay?
I’ve always wondered about that. Is it because they’re your partner so they’re special and is an exception?
I NEVER cook anything nonvegan for my boyfriend. Why? Because I’m vegan and using/cooking animal products goes against my morals.
I have been dating my boyfriend for nearly 3 years and I love him. Dumping him because he isn’t vegan is wrong in my opinion. He’s also been very open about it. He’s always eager to try vegan meals and sometimes he’ll even order vegan or vegetarian when we go out. If I cook something and it’s vegan he’ll eat it. We have talked about that if we live together if he wants anything non-vegan he can cook it. He didn’t throw a fit or anything.
I do understand why some vegans might have this issue, some are already married with children when they make the switch and that can be a big change for the family. It can lead to marital discord in some instances I think. Who are you to judge them? Do you want them to put their marriage on the line to make you feel better?
Never. I swear. I’ve had this discussion with my best friend about when we move in together. I’m not cooking meat for him. But then again, he’s doing most of the cooking and he says he wants to try making me veg things. But I wouldn’t be able to mess with the meat. I gag when my mom makes me fix a sandwich for my younger brother. All he eats is bacon.
I used to cook it for my boyfriend, despite my conscience kicking me in the butt, gotta admit I’m one of those people that sees the kitchen as their domain and hate when other people make a huge mess out of it. Anyways, after this past time the smell finally got to me and made my stomach do a back flip and I had to have him finish it. After that he really began to realize it’s not the meat it’s self that gets me worked up it the smell, taste, texture everything about it makes my body, mind and heart go NO! He’s been making his own meat dishes since and is more open to eat what I make before making something else.
My boyfriend isn’t vegan, but he’s grown amazingly accustomed to the food.
He’s damn near vegetarian right now except for when we go to barbecues and stuff with family. The only non-vegan thing that he ever really eats when I’m around is ranch dressing or some cheese occasionally. But in general, he comes over to my house, eats my Boca chick’n and Daiya cheese and is perfectly happy with it.
I’ve never cooked him anything non-vegan. He’s not an exception and he tells me he’s working towards veganism. When we go out to eat, if I volunteer to pay for stuff, he knows that the food he eats will have to at least be vegetarian. I could not bear to see a plate full of flesh (especially being consumed by my beloved) and know that I had funded it.
So no, I don’t know if anyone here would consider their partners “special” enough to be unaffected by their own morals.
For example, I love Eric with all my heart, but if he never makes the leap to veganism I know that I cannot be with him forever and I cannot have my children with him.
My boyfriend cooks meat in front of me.. :[
But I told him I’d never make him any food that has meat in it not even a sandwhich!
D: It’s just too gross for me. Plus, I can’t stand seeing meat get burned or grilled or what not cause I imagine like an actual animal.. :’[
