In a word, no. Not only has this caused arguments, but where kids are involved, it can get pretty difficult. Could you stand watching your partner chomp down on ribs while you eat your lentil burger? Could you kiss someone after they'd just necked a glass of bovine growth hormones milk?
Could you stand back and watch your partner feed your child chicken wings? Okay, enough of the horrible visuals already. But the reality is that it's advisable for single vegans to date other vegans, if that is they don't want to run into the aforementioned issues later down the line. In my opinion, if you can't agree that cruelty to animals is unnecessary, and that meat and dairy is unnecessary in maintaining a healthy diet, I don't hold out much hope for a successful, loving future together.
A vegan looking for romance who shares my love of animals and plant-based foods? Enter vegan dating, well, vegetarian and vegan dating, because most sites combine the two groups. Mind you though, not all are created equally, as I found out in my research.
Indeed, some hardly have any members and, despite some looking the part, many don't appear active at all. So here they are, my 4 top vegan dating site picks: It has a focus on community and meaningful connections, with advanced filtering that enables you to specify the exact lifestyle partner you are and aren't looking for — such as the vegan filter!
The site isn't strictly for vegans of course, but mindful living and conscious eating complement each other and are other synonymous. So naturally there's plenty of vegans and vegetarians on there looking for friendship, romance and love!
