Seconded! Like-minded is great for a lot of things, but I personally don't think it's absolutely NECESSARY in terms of whether someone is a vegan, vegetarian, or omnivore.
RESPECT, however, is necessary. Along with intelligence and compassion.
And a respectful, intelligent, compassionate omnivore might simply be a vegetarian or vegan waiting to happen.
I was an omnivore not so long ago. My boyfriend is an omnivore now. But I've noticed since I went vegan, it's engendered a lot of respectful conversations, thought, and perhaps (fingers crossed) some changed minds and attitudes and diets! Not just with the boyfriend, but with friends and family alike. Mom has begun changing her diet and she's doing it slowly - she's at two vegetarian days per week, and is heading to three next. Yay!
Finding someone new can be tough (especially if you're LOOKING... The man for me came when I had all but given up on dating!) but it'll be even tougher if you limit by their current diet.
The perfect girl for you might not be a vegetarian, or she might not be a vegetarian YET. Maybe she needs to meet YOU to become inspired!
And remember that devotion to a girlfriend shouldn't mean forsaking ALL friendships. Friends and socialization outside a relationship are important too...
Keep on keepin' on. And keep posting here! It's a welcome haven when you just don't feel like dealing with the meat-eating world.
Best of luck to you, in all your endeavors.
