I don't think I could date someone who wasn't at least vegetarian.  That being said, when I started dating my boyfriend, we both ate meat and we transitioned to being vegetarian together.  We're not vegan but I avoid animal products as much as possible, I'm kind of lactose intolerant anyway.  He, not so much.... avoids it but not the same way I do.  Still.  Similar views.

 

It's hard dating someone with different views in general - politics, religious, etc.  Things like this are just the same.  While your views don't necessarily have to be identical, it's probably important that they are relatively similar.

I never really "looked" for people to date, it just always kind of happened. I really am one of those vegans who let other people know exactly where I stand if the subject of food comes up, or clothing, or world issues, so I tend to find out who is a vegan pretty fast.

Go to whole foods, chat with people buying plant milks, faux meat, and large quantities of fruit. Ask if they're veg*n and single, then profit. You can tell a lot about a person from what food they buy.

For an older crowd, vegan potlucks and meet up groups would be a safe bet.

I've personally been in a lot of situations where I had to stay true to myself no matter what everyone else around me thought or did so I know I can do it again. As with relationships, there are certain things that strike more cords in me than others.  I could personally be with a meat eater, because I know that I am doing the best I can by not pushing my beliefs on others and just being the example.  Although I do care about animal welfare, I must admit that I'm not as passionate about that as I am about helping people improve their lives, giving back, etc.
