Yea. so hmm I guess its been hard to find those vegan/vegetarian types then again do you find it easier to just convert the person you are dating? ;0 I suppose it really depends and this is probably when your tabling skills come out full force am I right? I also see that by cooking and showing them cool meals it helps I guess though if someone is already vegan or vegetarian its often easier. I have dated girls in the past that aren’t vegetarian at all and its a bit of a bore because there is nothing to talk about. I suppose my lame problems will not get much advice but, yea overall I guess it depends .
What do you think is the best way to meet a vegan or vegetarian to date? I have used dating sites too and those don’t work out too well because some girl was like “YEAAA I love animals I am VEGAN!” *munches on a McDonald’s burger. Call me a wimp but, I just don’t like liars who use my values as much as a pawn to date me. So I guess my question is just finding a vegan or vegetarian girlfriend?
yourxgorgeousxnightmare Woah! That is pretty cool yea, I agree some girls dont mind however, others feel this “NO MACHO MEAT MAN” mentality. Its really amusing but, you are right going vegan isnt the best way to force it on them. I dont think I am forcing but, just if they cant accept it and make fun of it all the time it would grow annoying very very FAST. Trust me. I guess it really depends though I have started a site as well should be up soon im working on the CGI, and php development right now so you can check it out. I am doing all the coding by hand but, its so WORTH it! Perhaps when I add more content to it I can start branching out more groups and members. I guess at this point its not like I really care about that relationship crap just has been rather annoying since I deal with work, outreach, and just spend time on the computer with development and debugging Gah! Yea!
When I first met my boyfriend, Ben, I told him I was vegetarian and why. Without me even forcing my beliefs on him or asking him to go vegetarian with me, he just did it all by himself. I think if you found the right person for you, they will accept your vegetarian/vegan lifestyle and want to convert themselves. If not, you shouldn’t force your beliefs on them, but rather tell them it would mean so much to you if they considered it. (:
@silencescreams, Oh I see. So the circular means that we’re equal to other creatures right. I had imagined it hollow in the middle and the animals would make up the line for the circle lol. I just asked my boyfriend what he thinks and he doesn’t agree with either of them. He thinks it’s more cone shaped and humans wouldn’t be in it at all because there is a conflict of interest since we’re the ones making the diagram.
I think its important to let your gf or bf come to a decision to be vegan on their own. My boyfriend eats meat, which isnt MY choice, but i’m not going to hate him for making his choice. What I do is encourage us to go to veggie friendly restaurants, keep vegan food in the house, and include him in my animal rights activities. That way he can decide for himself. I find if you try to force the issue and “convert” someone, they wont be in it wholeheartedly, and will probably quit at some point.
