Eating meat at my dads place but not my own?

Why do I eat meat at my dads place but give the impression I'm vegetarian at my place? (Not having meat in the fridge, freezer, etc)?

Maybe you are nervous about your father's reaction to your making the decision to go veg.

Absolutely! Every step in the right direction is a positive thing Many people these days subscribe to lifestyles where they reduce the amount of meat they consume by only eating it away from home, only on the weekends, only eat one non-vegan meal a day ext... Not really vegetarianism or veganism, but your definitely still making an impact by reducing your consumption.

Eating less meat of course is better than more, however why plan for it?
This holiday came in short notice of your decision to be vegetarian, and you have a great start by not eating meat in your home, so not saying anything at your fathers this Christmas is understandable.
You have a new year now to let everyone that matters that you are vegetarian. Being vegetarian means you DON'T eat meat.
I don't know if you've ever really said why you're afraid of your fathers reaction. You've said you feel it would be rude to not eat his food, but once he knows you don't eat meat, don't you feel it would be rude of him to expect you to make an exception?

My family knows that I'm vegetarian and they're roasting the vegetables in olive oil for me this year. Maybe you could do the same at your dad's next Christmas?

True. Good idea. I'll do that. Is not having fish for 8 days an achievement? My dad didn't destroy that record of mine

Are you afraid of your father? I don't see why he plays such a role in what you eat if you live on your own

No. At his place he gives me meat... at my place I don't have meat (even fish).

Okay Liquinn. I don't understand your situation at all. You say you live on your own. Why does your father have anything to do with what you eat? Does he determine your clothes? Your hair? your personal habits?

Having dinner with others still does not determine what you eat.
I can understand not wanting to have drama about it this christmas, but you keep talking about the future

Liquinn, it sounds as though you are afraid of committing to vegetarianism for one reason or another. I understand, as one of the things holding me back from fully committing to veganism (as opposed to vegetarianism) is being a bother to other people and having to be excruciatingly careful when eating out. I'm shy about things like that.

Remind yourself that you get to be important too. Your ethics and wishes are at least as important as your father's. And if you can't commit forever now, commit for as long as you can, and reinforce your commitment with veg*n videos and lectures.

Don't worry too much about labels and when it counts right now. I think you really need to focus on cutting meat out no matter where you are having dinner at first before you try and add labels to it.

I seem to see eat meeting at my dads "different" to eating at mine. :/

My friend is veggie and eats fish... so why can't I get away with having a meat-meal too?

Your friend is pescatarian then, not vegetarian. Just because they cheat and call themselves the wrong label doesn't mean you should. I mean, you can eat a meat meal, you just can't call yourself vegetarian.

What if someone doesn't eat fish but eats meat? I'll get there.
