Was looking through this section for this but didn't come across any similar question.<br><br>
Back in high school, I told my boyfriend at the time I was vegetarian. So, he began interegating me on this. There was one time when he took me out to eat in this chinese restaurant and asked me if I wanted to share his pork fried rice. I obviously denied and he goes, "Ugh, that's just too bad."<br><br>
Eventually we broke up and on his myspace wall he put a picture of Hitler and it read: " vegetarian and german shepard dog lover". I own a German Shepard. He was just right-out rude. Then he also made a comment about, "If life give you lemons, make beef stew." <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/mad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":mad:"><br><br>
Have any of you dealt with someone who was non-veg*n? Did you have the same experience or was it different?

sorry you had to deal with this.....my fiancee is an omni and he is sooooo supportive and cooks and eats veggie all the time and is always checking labels and calling restaurants and everything that I can think of.....I am really lucky....in our case opposites attract bigg time and it really works.....people are always joking that they dont know why cause we are soooo different.....but it does......I hope you find someone that is a good person and good to you no matter what they eat.<br><br>
Peace, LOve and Harmony<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Check out this thread, lots of good opinions here: <a href="http://www.veggieboards.com/newvb/showthread.php?120298-On-average.....-does-dating-omnis-work" target="_blank">http://www.veggieboards.com/newvb/sh...ing-omnis-work</a><br><br>
It works for me personally but dating an omni is as varied as dating any other person, some suck and some are awesome. It works if you have a great relationship with your partner and they are respectful of your choices, otherwise not so much.

I briefly dated someone who "didn't get it". He just could not comprehend why I don't eat meat. When he first found out he was like "so you don't even eat it sometimes? What about fish? Not at ALL?!" Yes, my diet is very shocking. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/no.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":no:"><br>
I made a comment about a nasty fur coat once and he said, "I don't get your obsession with animals. It's weird."<br>
That and about 75 other reasons is why I ended things, but that was probably the biggest deal breaker.<br><br>
Your ex sounds very mature, with the Myspace picture and all <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":rolleyes:">

I think that dating anyone is about respecting each other's differences... If somebody can't accept that you, as an adult wo/man can make their own informed decisions, or choose your own lifestyle, then they're probably not worth it.

thats some nasty guy<br><br>
i date an omni and he is not like that. i only struggle because it bothers me that he isn't veg*n, but he is always nice and when i am over cooks vegetarian food for me. i think i just got pissed once when he made some jokes on facebook about fake bacon i used in a recipe. but he didn't mean it badly, i am just very sensitive about it

I think the problem wasn't that this guy was omni, but that he was a dick <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> Find someone who deserves you next time!

This.<br><br>
I've never dated a veg*n. Up until fairly recently, I'd never actually met another one. My current boyfriend is a sweetie; he never makes fun of my choices, does his best to accommodate my diet, and eats the same meals as me most of the time. My last major relationship before him... well, the guy was an ass. He used to wave meat in my face, constantly attack my ethics, and was on a personal mission to get me to eat meat again. He boasted that he'd already converted three other veg*ns, and that I was going to be no different. And now, every time I run into him; "still a vegetarian?"<br><br>
I can't wait for next time. "Still a vegetarian?" "Nope." "Ha, I knew it!" "I'm a vegan."<br><br>
Anyway; by all means, date omnis. You may even help them eat more ethically. But don't date a$$holes.

Yeah, I know he was a d!ck. That's why we're still not dating.<br><br>
I actually have the greatest boyfriend of all time now. He's actually more supportive of me being vegetarian and he actually is considering of it too. :)

I dated a man who WANTED to be vegan, who believed in all the same ideals, he really did, and then he'd go and get a pizza hut hot and ready pepperoni pizza, needless to say we broke up (though, over different reasons), and spent half of our time fighting about how he is incapable of practicing what he preaches.

Crazy how people who say things like that never seem to realise how THEY actually have an obsession with eating and wearing them. <img alt="" src="http://fc07.deviantart.net/fs30/f/2009/243/5/2/_roll__by_catluvr2.gif" style="border:0px solid;">

HAHAHA, that just reminded me of what my mom said the other day. She was offering me pizza that has pepperoniand I give her that "what are you doing" look. I tell her that I don't eat anything that had a brain, mouth or heart at one point in life. So, she goes, "What? It doesn't have a mouth now!" *sigh* oh, boy!
