So far I've visited those sites but they seem to be all down and really old:
- Vegan Passions
- Veggie Date
- Veggie Matchmakers
- Planet Earth Singles
Right now I'm trying this new app called vemili.com. It's modern and looks awesome so far.
Any other suggestions for me?
In my experience, dating sites (veggie or otherwise) have not worked well. When it's one on one, it's hard to relax and get to know someone, because there's pressure to impress the other person right away, and to evaluate them right away.
I would just go to a local vegetarian Meetup (http://www.meetup.com
, search term "vegetarian"). With Meetup, like-minded people hang out in groups. It's a much lower-pressure way to meet people. It's how I met my beautiful vegan wife. And it's free.
