This is my first time visiting the site and it looked interesting enough so I thought I'd sign up! I know very few vegetarians/vegans so I'm hoping I can build some online connections.
I'm from Minnesota. I'm 25 and I've been a vegetarian for 5 years now. I was given a leaflet on my way out of school one day and became a vegetarian literally overnight. I've never had the urge to switch back to a meat eating lifestyle. My family and friends support me..but I can't sit down with anyone I know and have intelligent, in-depth conversations about vegetarianism. I read a lot of articles and books on various topics as they relate to my lifestyle but no one to really share my insights with. I hope to find a little of what I'm looking for here!
