I think she didn't like people telling her to leave her boyfriend...

I think to be fair to the OP, all we know about her is that she has not posted again since that initial post. There could be any number of reasons why that is.

I didn't mean to sound rude or unfair when I said that... and yes, there could be other reasons.
I just think it could legit be the reason why. Even though from an outside position I agreed that she should leave him, I think that if I was in her position I would not have wanted to hear that.

Sounds like this dude doesn't have basic social skills and basic respect for you.

Waiving meat in your face in front of his friends and not buying groceries for you is super childish and bullying. What normal person denies someone else groceries? This isn't really about the food--it's something about his underlying lack of love and respect.

If you've done all you can to work this out and he still can't develop basic social skills and basic respect for you, you have a big decision to make.

RebeccaXO -

Congrats on going vegan!!

A true boy "friend" would support your decisions.

Like SILVA said.... It isn't that he doesn't respect your choices, it's that he doesn't respect YOU.

If he doesn't support you in this, you have to wonder how deep his commitment is after all.

Mocking you and ridiculing you is totally uncalled for. I would calmly explain why this is important to you, and get him to decide to support you, or not. If he can't stand behind you, I'd get another boyfriend. Like maybe a vegan!!

All animals should be respected & should have the ability to lead a natural & enjoyable life. This means not eating them, or abusing them in any way.
