Does anyone know of any free online services? Has anyone had any success?



I hope this topic isn't a repeat. The search feature didn't work when I tried it.

I was doing my own thing quietly and YOU are the one who created this post trying to make a big deal out of it. Keep flaming the fire. That must be what you want.

Do you recall what those other websites were? I live in a different part of the country.



I'll check out vegspace.com, thanks.

There's veggieconnection.com and veggiedate.com, that I know of. I've been on both, had no luck with either.



If I recall correctly, veggiedate had a trial period, but no free service after that. Veggieconnection has a free service, but it's pretty limited.



I've had better luck just being myself, right here.

I've never had any luck hooking up on veg/vegan boards/forums. It's a waste of time trying.

I have played a lot on OK cupid. Its not specifically veg but very veg friendly.





I have found some cool people. the only problem is that the ones I realy want to meet are a distance away from me.

I hate ok cupid. I think I've been a member for 2 years and I haven't had any success. I deactivated my account then opened up an account again for some strange reason. I'm ready to deactivate it again.

It's not a dating service, but if you'd like to find other people of similar interests to hang out with, try meetup.org. The veg groups are usually quite popular.

I just joined a non-veg singles meetup group.



The singles group has its first meetup in a week and a half, however I met the organizer thru another meetup last friday night and we exchanged a flirtatious email back and forth over the past weekend.

It's very difficult to meet people in person.



People are suspicious and mistrusting off each other in the US compared to 15 years ago because of the lack of face to face interaction caused by the internet and the news media bombarding people with crime stories morning, noon, night, print, television, and online.



It wasn't like this 15 years ago.

i joined veggieromance.com and had no luck, there were hardly any scottish guys on it, and although there were some cute english ones on there that i think i'd have got on with, it would take something very special to get me to do the long distance thing.



i'm going to try these other sites that have been mentioned, it's frustrating that i haven't found any fellow veggies in my new city.

This doesn't make any sense. It sounds like a lot of people who've posted need to move to another city, state, or country.

yes it certainly seems so, but i'm sure many of us (myself included) are stuck in one place for a fixed period of time.

I checked out planetearthsingles.com. Their stupid profile completion section took forever and had, like, 12 parts or something that asked *very* detailed questions. After all that, I discovered that there were only 6 or 7 local men on there and they were either far too old for me or creepy.



I'm sorry but I really hate online dating. I agree that the internet has disconnected people... I just want to meet someone the old-fashioned way.. you know, anywhere, out and about, with a face to face smile and spontaneous conversation! It's not like I'm a hermit or painfully shy either...! I've been single for 4 years and I really don't know what to do anymore.

LongLashedVeg, try not to cry, I know its rough. I feel your pain.



veggielove cost: $48.00/year

vegdate $19.95/year



That's pretty cheap. They have shorter plans. I might give one a try as a last desperate attempt at online dating.

I know alot of vegan/veggie women but they're attracted to soft-spoken, skinny, scrawny, effeminate type boys. I'm a loud, macho, 210lb weightlifter. I might as well be gay.

i have a similar thing, the guys i like invariably dig petite, thin girlie girls, whereas i'm a tall, rubenesque nerdy tomboy. if i wasn't an atheist i'd be wondering what i did to deserve this.

I wouldn't learn anything about training on a bodybuilding site. I lift for strength and bodybuilders lift for mass.



I belong to a few non-veg power or O-lifting sites that are NOT social clubs and they shouldn't be. There aren't many if any female members on those sites and I don't care what the gender composition is anyway.

i didn't expect you to learn anything, it was an opportunity to communicate with women of the variety that you like. cos you know... talking and sharing an interest can lead to developing relationships which oooh ooh... can sometimes lead to meeting other people or even some actual loving. but if you're gonna put up barriers as to why you can't or won't or shouldn't do it, you're right, it won't work for you.

You don't get it and I'm not putting up barriers. Whatever. I don't share the same interest as bodybuilders. Weight lifting fourms are not social clubs. People post on them are serious about training. What section would I post on a bodybuilding forum?



I used to post on veganbodybuilding and fitness.com. I didn't learn anything about training nor did I meet any women.
