I know some people that are completely grossed out kiss a meat eater, but I also know some vegan/vegetarians who don’t care if their bf/gf eats meat, because it’s not their choice to make. So I was wondering where most vegs stand on this; I’m still not sure what I think.
My boyfriend eats meat. He understands my beliefs but doesn’t always respect them. It’s hard, but I know it’s not my place to force my ideas at him. He knows how I feel, and it doesn’t change how he feels. But, that’s his moral philosophy. I have mine, and I’ll love him regardless.
My boyfriend eats meat, and he listens to all of my views and has watched some movies about the industry (Earthlings, I Am An Animal). It gets frustrating to me that he can watch these things but still eat meat.. but I don’t want to press my beliefs on him.
I refuse to buy him any meat, because I will not contribute the the meat industry and he understands that.
As long as they are understanding, I don’t mind.
My boyfriend was likely a meat eater before we started dating, but now he eats mainly vegan food. So, in a way, I say there might be benefits to dating a meat eater in the fact that they might make the switch to veganism. But I wouldn’t date someone who thought animal cruelty was okay, and well, anyone who continues to consume animal products is condoning that. It’s not mean or weird to refuse a relationship based on these grounds.
At the beginning of the relationship I’d say it doesn’t really matter, but there comes a time when you’ve got to ask your significant other how they feel about animal rights, environmentalism, their own health, etc.
I like dating smart guys, so any guy who isn’t smart enough to try veganism is a big no!
