A VERY bad idea indeed.

Edit the post to delete your email.

Invite people to PM you instead.

Give your email only to people you want to email from there.

Just an idea!

Welcome to the forum, btw

I know what you mean- I have arranged to live with the same uni hall mates next year, they are fine but there meat eating is annoying to live with, and I do wish I could house up with someone veg*n.

Would love to chat but as I am only a humble Vegetarian I don't meet your criteria!!

The best way to make lots of productive vegan friendships in my opinion is to join a vegan group in your area. In my country there are some great vegan organisations specifically aimed at younger people so you won't find yourself the only young person in a amongst a group of much older adults. Have you tried googling for something like that where you live?

There aren't a ton of vegans nearby where I live.

I'll have to make a mental note to go make some more next time I get some vacation days.

I make vegans sometimes. Did you know that? I've probably made a couple of dozen so far. Someone made me into one, once upon a time, too. I don't regret it, but we're no longer friends..so maybe my idea isn't a good way to make friends either.

Drat. Back to the drawing board.

And hey, speaking of friendship, does anyone else find it overrated?

No friendship ever has a happy ending. When one ends, there's usually resentment. Or death. Or both...

Like that girl who educated me about vegan issues. She's kinda dead, but also not my friend anymore either, which is a double negative..but somehow not a positive.

Damn.

Learn to love yourself first..and expect betrayal and letdowns at every stage of your life.

Yeah, out of necessity. Vegan friends would be nice. Problem is, so many of them have totally twisted views about other issues, making them apparently impossible to really be friends with.

I'm especially amused by the ones who have high standards that they, themselves, are exempt from.

Why is it necessary that your friends are vegan? I mean, it's nice to have things in common, but if I expected everyone I hung around with to hold themselves to the exact same moral standards that I do I'd either be very bored or very alone.

Sometimes if you hang around omnis long enough they'll realize how awesome your food tastes and how cool your fake leather shoes are and your veganism may 'rub off' on them. It's happened to me a number of times!

seriously, my friends dont get me. they think its cute to offer me chicken or ask when I'm going to start eating ice cream again.. it would be nice to talk to someone who can relate to my lifestyle. I've got tons of friends- none vegan. It would just be cool to know at least one I could chat with.

Isn't that what we're doing here?
(Also, sorry your friends are jerks like that)
