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.
Kinda hard, which is something I’ve been struggling with even vegan or vegetarian girls are hard to come be let alone the open minded ones. I suppose thats my key though with a lot of things to push out people.
Its hard, because I am VERY passionate about what I do, and Im a big activist, I cant help but wrinkle my nose when someone is eating meat in front of me because it grosses me out so much! My most recent ex ate meat and it was always a problem when it came to my activism cuz it was “Stupid” or i was some psycho so that did NOT fly with me at ALL. My biggest issue is can they respect the fact that im vegan and that I loudly voice my opinions about meat, dairy, fur, ect? So I suppose if they respected me sure Id date one (and probably try to convert them) but Id rather a vegan
No, I would not date someone who eats meat.
I would never want to be with anyone who isn’t willing to make such a small sacrifice to end such a large amount of pain and suffering.
I would much rather give love and companionship to someone who is willing to make that small sacrifice.
Also, I don’t believe it is just a matter of choice.
Unnecessarily supporting the torture, murder and consumption of innocent defenseless beings is simply wrong in every way.
The laws may currently only cover the murder and consumption of other humans but that’s only because the meat industry currently has so much political power and societal influence.
It is not any less wrong to murder and consume animals.
In the near future, the laws will apply to both humans and animals.
Will you still consider meat eating to be just a matter of choice at that point?
Perhaps you should reconsider your position now rather than waiting for laws to come along and tell you the difference between right and wrong.
Yes and no. My better half has slimmed his diet down to pescetarian since we’ve met, has been very supportive of my conversion to vegetarianism, and shares genuine concern with me about the welfare of many animals. Though he still does eat- and love- his sea kittens (they’re his favourite food- always have been). I think that, if he didn’t make animals and the environment of a similar importance that I do (he’s a big environmentalist- been an activist for that for years. It kinda puzzles me how he was, and yet still supported one of the biggest contributors to the epidemic), then no, I couldn’t possibly. However, he’s my best friend, and he’s very intelligent and open-minded. Even if he doesn’t cut fish out of his diet (which he might or might not do- I’m not going to bug him about it, though. If someone’s opinion is forcibly changed, they still really keep their old one, so yelling at him about it is not going to change; that kind of thing isn’t my style, anyway), I’d still love him to bits anyway.
Yes. My girlfriend ate a standard American diet (meat in every meal) when we started dating. She respected my beliefs, and I respected her right to make her own decisions. Now she’s grown to love vegan food, and is a vegetarian.
My boyfriend does eat meat, but he respects my decisions and is open to trying vegetarian/vegan meals that I make. I believe it’s his choice, I wouldn’t not date a meat-eater, but if the person doesn’t have respect for vegetarians/vegans, their morals or animals, that’s a different story haha.
