I have been with my boyfriend for five years now and we might even attend college together. However, I am vegetarian and he is vegan. My parents just now got used to me being vegetarian even though I haven’t eaten meat for ten years, and would hate me going vegan. I really love him and I don’t want to offend him way by eating animal products with him, like how we often share vegan ice cream together! I want to go vegan with him, but I’m afraid of my parents reactions. What should I do?
Do what you feel best! No matter what you choose, someone is going to have a “problem” with it, ya know? It’s one of those decisions where you just do what you want to do! You sound like you’re going to college soon? You’re pretty grown up, and pretty soon your parents won’t even have to worry about it, Im sure. I’d go vegan, if I were you.
You’re almost in college it sounds like. So why don’t you make your own decisions? Especially if you’re not going to live at home; your parents can’t tell you what to eat. And if that doesn’t work, just try to eat as much vegan food as possible at given moments.
