I know a TON of vegan guys. I'd say that all but 3 of the guys I hang out with are vegan. In fact, I forget on a regular basis, that people still eat animals. Granted... I work at PETA, so I guess that's not a fair representation.



The thought that guys can't be/stay vegan is sad. My boyfriend is a Martial Arts Instructor (insanely active), and he's done even better in competitions etc since going vegan. He recommends veganism for his students who are looking to really get in shape and do high level competing ( these are people who are already used to monitoring thier diets to get proper nutrients).

I am a vegan man. I was first a veg for health reasons but the longer I was a veg the more other reasons became important - especially AR and the environment. I have been a vegan for about three years. The only real difficulty I have is vegan soccer cleats . . . still trying to work that one out.



I have dated and lived with veg women. We would either have separate meals or just slightly different. I have a daughter who is almost totally veg (she occasionally eats contraband when with relatives and friends - I am basically the only veg*n) so once again I cook two meals when I have to. I am training her though in AR and taking care of the environment with an eye towards veganism by choice.



This forum has been great to meet more veg*ns

I am a vegan dude and am a friend/enemy of only one other vegan male. I do not know enough vegan people!



I have not dated a non veg girl since going vegan. I believe it would be difficult to be with someone on a long term if our lifestyles or beliefs were drastically different, although I am not against the idea of dating anyone with any opposing views that I may have. I would love to love someone who loves animals as much as I do!

My eyes lit up when I saw this thread.

There aren't enough of you guys. Apathy is not an attractive quality.

The only vegetarian man I know is my friend's fiancé. Apparently he is working on becoming vegan.



I briefly met another vegetarian guy a few months ago but he definitely wasn't my type, lol.



I haven't met any vegan men, ever!!



I've been single for a while and since I became vegan, I think it would be really hard for me to see my partner eat meat and consume other animal products. I'm afraid I'll never meet a vegan man, nevermind one who has potential... I also live on my own and just thinking about sharing a fridge with an omni totally disgusts me... I don't want non-vegan food in my house....



*stressed*

Vegan, male.



Health wise, no difference AFAICT. I have awesome stamina.



Building muscles on a vegan diet doesn't seem to be that difficult either.

When I was doing AR activism stuff I knew lots of vegan guys. If you ladies are looking for a vegan guy, I would recommend joining a local activist group. But be warned, it was like 5 vegan women for every 1 vegan guy...

Good thing for the hetero- and bisexual men then.

Yeah, if you talk to any men who are complaining about not being able to find a girlfriend tell them to go vegan and start attending AR-type events...

Aside from myself, I know a few other vegan/vegetarian guys.



My best friend has been vegetarian as long as I've been vegan. Another one of my best friends goes off and on between vegetarianism and pescitarianism. I know a vegetarian photographer. A good friend of mine is vegan. I was given a ride home by a vegetarian guy once. I know a few guys in the local music scene that are veg*n. And most of the people I see working at the vegan restaurants around Orlando are guys.



It's a shame that most guys tend to view vegetarianism/veganism as "something for sissies."

I meet a vegan guy every day I look in the mirror.

"How you doin'?", I will say, winking to the handsome hunk.

"Hey stop flirting with me", the guy in the mirror will say.

"Well, ex-cu-se me, you rude a-hole", I'll respond.

"No need to use that kind of language... ...you ****face", the guy in the mirror will respond.

"I'll ****ing punch your teeth out", I'll say.

"Do your worst", the mirror guy will say, fists raised.

Then I'll punch myself in the face. I have to go to the nearby hospital at least twice a week.

So you end up in the hospital from punching the clown a few times a week?

First of all, I think that getting into activism just to get a date is pretty low. Having said that, in my experience the ratio of male to female activists has been about 1:1.



But even if there really were a lot more female vegans than males, this still doesn't mean that us guys have it made. By the time we meet them, the vegan girls are typically already in a long term relationship with a non-vegetarian guy.

They may have to accept that they're going to miss out on a lot and live a boring life.
