    Date sure!, but if you are going for something more serious I think it would be a problem. I can't imagine cooking next to a wad of raw meat or using the same utensils etc. Its more of a practical thing than anything else. This is an issue for me when I have to choose a restaurant etc I prefer to cook, and eat at home, and know exactly what I am eating. So, most of you may have guessed already I can be quite a fun date! ;)

  • I'm in a relation with a guy who eats meat and all that.. but he doesn't eat meat, when he knows we meet, because it's disgusting to me, to kiss someone who just ate something dead . I'm really happy about knowing he respects that im vegan. We cook together and he likes eating vegan dinners but he doesn't want to turn vegan, it's hard to understand for me, but i also have to respect it. I mean, im just his girlfriend and not his mother. :D

  • Sure, why not?

  • At this point I wouldn't date someone who was religious before I excluded a meat eater from contention.

    I would rather go out with a vegetarian/vegan before a carnivore though. My ex-husband ate fish and chicken and otherwise he ate vegan mostly.

    My boyfriend eats meat and I can't help but get upset at times. If he was making a conscious choice it would be one thing (or maybe he really is and I'm in denial...), and maybe I would not be able to stand it, but this whole eating meat per default thing is merely a product of the current society (like there was a time where women not being allowed to vote was standard and considered normal).
    Sure some people choose the comfort of not knowing but I think that many would change their habits if they only got some insight on them.

    It sucks to feel like a fascist at every meal, people often think you're trying to change them though you are completely silent...

    Totally agree :D

    It's all a matter of respect to each other's choice.

    One question: Those who talk about respect would also respect if their partners would abuse children, beat someone to death, or do what ever other highly wrong thing???

    There is no rational argument left in this world for eating animals. So please do not talk of respect as if it was a kind of hobby or abstract religion. There are 50 billion(!!) animals (fish&Co. not even counting!) killed per year ... for no reason - that is nothing which deserves any respect at all.

    I also thought different when I was a vegetarian for over 20 years - but many things I did not know - and nowadays with documentaries like "Earthlings" not one can say any more "I did not know" ... the shocking truth is all over the internet. And the only respectful reaction towards any life would be becoming vegan. For some it takes some time ... ok ... but arguing with "respect" for people who eat animals is not just illogical - it's highly cynical when you know how much brutal suffering is going on just because people consume "meat" ...

    Um thats a little difficult. It would be easier to have a partner who is also a vegetarian but I think I would as long as they dont try to convince me to join them in eating meat. I hate when people try to convince me to eat meat its so annoying.

  • Dating with a meet eater is like dating with a pedophile. Never! It's disgusting.

    We can't change. We can only change our choices. The choice to kill animals is the choice to choose the lie. Why would you even think that someone that cares nothing for the Truth (proven by their choice of ignoring the most important truth of all: Life is Most Important in Life) would behave honestly with you? If they don't care about the Truth then they have no clear direction or solid foundation for their thoughts, words, and actions.

    In essence you have said...

    'both types of people cause unnecessary harm for the sole purpose of personal gratification.'

  • I wouldn't date a carnivore, smoker, drinker or whatever. The people around me should have the same lifestyle. It's that easy

  • preferably not, but i did and prolly will do it again, coz nothing beats love :)

    Yes, I would. But if they give me hell about it and make fun of me for not eating meat and expect me to touch theirs (except for the one that's in their pants), then hell no.

    I have no problem dating a meat-eater, though it would probably be awkward and inevitably lead to a discussion about morality. Every meat-eater has the potential to see the cruelty of the food industry and it would be my pleasure to educate them if they wanted to. No point forcing anyone into my idea of ethics, it will get me nowhere.

  • Rather not, but if there is enough attraction between me and the girl in question this could change. I'd never give up my vegetarianism for someone, though.
    Luckily my girlfriend is a veggie as well, so I have nothing to worry about.

  • Nope.

  • I would only consider it if I deemed it plausible that she might become vegan (or at the very least vegetarian) further on. Why? I find shared moral values quite important. Comparison: I wouldn't date a nazi or a satanist.
    Most people are unaware of just how cruel the meat industry is, so I would perhaps give some a certain leeway, so to speak; but in the long run, I would not want to be in a romantical relationship with anyone who supports animal cruelty.

    Yes, if he was open-minded.

    This is my signature.
  • It's worked for me so far. My boyfriend is supportive and we've pretty much never had an issue when going out anywhere. It helps that I live near a large city that has a big vegetarian/vegan community + options.

    I did. I never minded dating meat eaters. I even prepared my ex-husband's meals.
    But after dating my current vegan boyfriend for over two years, it's just soo much easier.

  • There is a real plus side of having similar dietary preferences.

    Not having to cook different meals, being able to share and enjoy cooking, being able to visit the same food outlets.

    The best thing about dating vegans (if you are vegan yourself) is that you can just background the whole veganism thing and just get on with living and not let it bother you. That is until you are out with family or friends... ( Probably the same for veggies.)

    I know plenty of meat eaters that are quite happy to eat veg*n food, especially if they don't have to cook it! I know some that are mostly vegan (diet wise) albeit for a small amount of meat. So I'm sure it could work for some couples.

    I think it's a headache best avoided.

    You can partner up a vegan and veggie, or even a veggie and a veggie and be worlds apart morally and idealistically - but eating should at least be slightly easier.

    A non Vegan (aka Vegetarian)? Maybe.
    A non Vegetarian (aka meat eater)? I don't think so.

    While I do agree that it is important to be tolerant and respect other people's "choices" to some degree, the difference between our standpoints regarding some very fundamental things would just be too big.

    Yes. but that would be a minus for her...
