Augh... is there anyone out there who is as frustrated as me??

I don't think of myself as picky when it comes to relationships, but I want someone who will respect me as a vegan and understands my ideals and values including why I am a vegan and not think I'm not crazy for not eating cheese. But I have yet to meet anyone who doesn't find it an issue... not necessarily a huge issue, but most of them just don't get it... even w/ my explaining; so for example when people ask about what happens when I have kids [like I'm supposed to stop being vegan... no seriously, they do] they can't believe that I want my children to be vegan. Anyways...


Is it really supposed to be this difficult??

So I know I'm only 23 and I have plenty of time cause there are so many fish in the sea etc etc etc... or maybe I just need to hurry up and get out of grad school so I can leave Texas. Haha.

Are there any vegetarian clubs/groups/co-ops in your school or area. Have you tried looking for veg*n meetups? Since there aren't many vegans out there (and it seems like even fewer vegan guys) these seem like the most logical place to meet a like-minded person.

I find it frustrating too. Most guys I meet are understanding enough, but as you say, "just don't get it" completely. I'm not excluding omni guys as potential dates, but I would prefer a veg guy, ya know? Unfortunately I've only ever met three of them in my life and they were all taken! My uncle jokingly offered to set me up with a firefighter vegetarian guy whom he volunteers with, but of course he lives so far there is no point. Which is too bad or I'd go along with it lol!

I noticed you have a myspace page. See if there are any veg myspace groups for people in your area. Or animal rights ones.

Since I became vegetarian I went out with an omni and then a vegetarian. It was nice being with the vegetarian because we didn't even have to talk about food. It was always assumed if we went somewhere we'd be looking for the same kind of food. Sometimes I sort of "forgot" we were vegetarian bc my diet and his just never became an issue.

^^^ a new matchmaker in the house.


It's funny having these two threads going at the same time. Can Beets83 convince Conway to become completely vegan though? Does it matter to her?

Beets indicates she is willing to leave Texas? Where does Conway live? Is he willing to wait?

The intrigue is building.

Hahahahahaha.

On the other hand, there are a few groups here and I've been to a couple events... but I am the youngest person [always] there. I mean I have nothing against 40 somethings but I don't want to date one. Lol... Oh and at school? That doesn't help... in my program there are probably 100 girls and 1 guy... I'm really not exaggerating either.
And I'm totally not used to meeting people online... lol so that'll take some time, if I decide to try it.

Anywhoots I'll be in the tofu aisle at Whole Foods...

I have to say having a Vegan SO is wonderful- food is NEVER an issue in this house and it's just wonderful... we forget that hell is other people until we leave the house lol... I wish you luck, truly. I can't imagine how irritating that must get.

Step 1) Make leaflets, lots of leaflets.

Something similar to the following(and use lots of cool vegan type colors, like greens):

======================================

Hot Veggie Chick

Hot Vegan Guy

Call 914-CALL-VEGN to discuss marriage plans.

ps. must like hummus

==============================

Step 2) Stand in front of the Whole Foods Market main doors.

Step 3) Hand out fliers.

Step 4) ???????

Step 5) Profit!!!

YES! It's brilliant. We make great success.

I shall make buttons too, great big buttons... and wear them everywhere I go, except school that is. They'll be green and white... and maybe say something like "Hot, single vegan! Approach for details."

Hmmm... this could prove to be interesting. ; )

Have you tired the online dating (if you are not opposed to such a thing)?

There are several sites:

www.veggiedate.com

www.veggieconnection.com

www.veggielove.com

I think there are one esp for vegans too. Just do a search for vegetarian or vegan dating and you will get lots.

Also, try www.meetup.com for your area - I met my bf through a raw food meetup (and their are vegan ones too). And even if you don't meet anyone, you'll have lots of new friends who may have friends to fix you up with!


Believe me, you have time - You are only 23. I will still dating meateaters when I was 23 (because their were no veggies around back when I was 23!). I had to go through many 'losers' to find some good veggies. I even met some of my ex-bfs who were veggie through regular personal ads and non-veggie online dating sites.

There are so many more vegans now than back when I was younger and looking!

(did you check out the personals section on here?)

Good idea!!!!

This reminds me of a dating supermarket, where singles have ribbons on their shopping carts. I cant remember where I read about that though.. it was a long time ago.

Good luck on the buttons though, I wish I had thought of that during my trips to wholefoods.
