Is there anyone who would exclude dating to only veg*ns?<br><br><br><br>
I know many of you date omnis and many wouldn't even dream of it but i don't want to hear about that please. I've only ever dated omni's so i understand already this line of view. At this point I'm purely interested in hearing from those who do.<br><br><br><br>
I'm tossing up with the idea. I know whats wrong with this line of thinking. On the other hand dating omnis generally adds alot of complications besides veg*ans are supposed to be better lovers <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)">

I've always found a woman smoking a turn-off and now find a woman eating flesh almost as much of a turn-off. That may limit my options but I'm prepared to accept it, rather than lower my standards.

My husband's been vegan for about 7 years. I 've been vegan for 4. Before I was married, I only dated veg guys. Being vegan is too important to me to have accepted someone who eats meat.

I never was bothered by it until recently when I've been trying to switch to vegan but I have to admit that it bothers me when my boyfriend eats meat,especialy because he knows all about the meat and dairy industry.He even read The Food Revolution.He is otherwise great.But he still eats meat and I can't change that.I don't know if I could ever settle down and raise children with someone who ate meat.It would be really hard for me.

I don't think that I could form a relationship with someone who had significantly different values. It has made things difficult in the past. Luckily I am now engaged to a wonderful vegan woman. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

I'd be okay with a vegetarian, because they're probably easy to convert anyway (she'd have to know that her conversion would be part of my plans <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)"> ). I mean, it's not like going from meat to no meat.... they're kind of more than halfway to veganism.

I'm going to have to say no to this one...my fiance is omni, and i was too for the first year we were together.<br><br><br><br>
No way am I giving up what we have over something like eating (or not eating) meat. We have ways of dealing with cooking, shopping, etc. and he agrees that any kids we might have will be raised veggie.

I'd date a smoking veg*n before a non-smoking omni any day. You can't ask a omni to step outside when they want a puff of meat. Besides, it's a lot easier to get a smoker to quit than a omnivore. I date omnivores, but there's always a low ceiling for that "relationship" such that it doesn't even begin to get to be a relationship at all (as someone is experiencing now).<br><br><br><br>
[EDIT: Just thought I'd mention this, on account of the avatar, I do not really smoke. I do flip people off a lot, though]

Some of you may disagree, but I believe that since it appears that the vast majority of veg*ans are women (if I'm wrong, I apologize), it's a lot easier for a veg*an man to find a veg*an woman to date than vice versa. That being said, I sure wish my omni boyfriend was vegetarian (vegan would be a dream), and sometimes it really bothers me that he just doesn't get it, or seem to care, about animals other than companion animals. But if I dated exclusively veg*ans, I'm pretty sure I'd be alone for a very, very long time.

Stats, anyone? I'd be interested to know what the breakdown is. I imagine it's in favour of the ladies, but I wouldn't say it's a "vast" majority.<br><br><br><br>
*I* certainly can't find one, though. A veg*n girl, that is. I've dated one in my whole life. Ironically, I let another great one get away while I was daing her. Oh well. Max needs a veg*n lady!!!

Sorry Max, you're a bit too old for me (or maybe I'm too young for you, however you want to put it)<br><br><br><br>
I don't think that I would be comfortable in a relationship with someone that ate meat, but I'm sure that it's possible. At the moment, I'm dating a vegetarian, but she eats vegan around me. I feel like a veg*n is going to be more understanding about the entire thing. And besides, the thought of kissing someone that's been eating meat sort of grosses me out. I wouldn't kiss someone that had smoke on their breath, and I definatly find meat just as disgusting.

I've never even met a vegan, or a real vegetarian; only a person calling herself a vegetarian, but ate slaughterhouse byproducts <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":(">

I live in north dakota,,,,,if I didnt date omnis, I wouldnt date and sorry this girl likes to get some....I never cook meat for my boyfriend, never buy meat for him, never would. He really doesnt eat much anyways, he mostly drinks protein crap all the time and he loves tvp. I don't dissassociate myself from people who meat. I inform people of how I feel, if they want to know or if an eating situation arises. But their lives are their lives, mine is mine and that's how I see it. I dont appologize for it or make excuses. I am what I am and if you dont like it, then f *** off. My boyfriend understands how I feel and is supportive and respectful of my views and he does agree on a lot of points. Hmmm that was a bit of a rant...but yeah I date omni's.

As I stated elsewhere, open mindedness is the key - it's more important than current values.<br><br><br><br>
Sure I'd date an omni but if she would be important to me and it would be a longer term relationship, I'd work hard to covert her. In fact I think I would work so hard that if she wouldn't convert, I would get so annoying that the whole thing wouldn't work... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)"><br><br><br><br>
Seriously though - once I gave her the "whole veg*n package" and she doesn't at least acknowledge it and try to change, I'd think there's something wrong with her and I think this (either that she's not open minded or that she can not think rationally or that she isn't compassionate) would be again a major turnoff for me!<br><br><br><br>
But if she does get enlightened, I'd have no problem with her converting gradually, i.e. not going veg* overnight.<br><br><br><br>
Vegetarian is OK of course, but I would try to get her to go vegan, at least at home <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">
