A few months back I met someone in a grocery store while buying my favorite Amy's Kitchen frozen dinner. We hit it off when we discovered that we both didn't eat meat and loved nature stuff. We talked for a bit, I told her about how I wanted to study the environment and was an advocate for my dad's vegetarian lifestyle, she told me she was trying to visit every state at least once, mostly traveling by bike. She also told me she was trying to go Vegan and I gave her my support, saying she was stronger than I (because I still have a severe weakness for cheese). We promised to look each other up on facebook and went our separate ways. We talked a couple times on facebook after that, mostly about where she was now and what she was doing on her trip....

....then a few months ago she dropped a bomb and I'm still feeling hurt. She posted on facebook that she'd eaten bacon for the first time in 15 years, was calling off going vegan, and pretty much implied she was gonna go back to being an omnivore. I feel silly that this is getting to me like this.... pretty much all my friends are omnivores after all, but it almost feels like she turned her back on me. Worse, I feel like a freaking hypocrite because I still occasionally will reach for something with meat in it if I'm limited in options. I get so disappointed when I hear stuff like this in general, but with a friend its even worse. It also makes me wonder if I'm any better considering how lax I am. Obviously I'd like to think I am but I just don't know. *SIGH*
