I just was curious, would you date a meat eater, or eventually marry a meat eater? Or does it have no revelence?<br><br><br><br>
I always wanted to date vegetarians, because its something cool to have in common and I would not want to kiss someone who just ate meat, but I dont know enough vegetarian guys. Its not the deciding factor for me however.

I would date a meat eater, as long as he respected my decision and was a great guy <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

I think we've already had this topic, but I guess there's no reason we can't have it again.<br><br>
I've never been entirely sure about this. I have a great vegetarian girlfriend so it's not something I have to worry about right now. I think at this stage in my life I would be quite happy dating omnis, but later on, when I'm thinking of 'settling down' it will be more of an issue. It wouldn't NECESSARILY be a deal-breaker then, but it would take some serious thinking about. Especially if kids were going to be in the equation (I am pretty open either to having kids or being childfree, although I know I could change my mind one way or the other sometime). Although I accept my kids may not stay veg*n if I raise them from birth, and may not ever even be fully veg*n if I adopted, I would definitely want a partner who was "on my side" wrt raising kids veggie or as near veggie as possible. This means probably not an omni.<br><br>
So, in summary - veggie who wants kids, fine. Veggie who doesn't want kids, fine. Omni who doesn't want kids, fine. Omni who wants kids, probably not.<br><br><br><br>
But I will most likely contradict myself tomorrow, because this whole issue is difficult to me and I am under no real pressure to decide.

I guess it depends on the situation. Definately wouldn't marry one though.

Well, in some instances there isn't much choice (ie, none of the opposite gender in your school are vegetarian.) But you wouldn't want to date a person just because they are vegetarian. I guess I'd date an omni if he were nice, and didn't try and convert me or doing anything... Immature.

In all honesty, I would not date an omni. Not only would dinners be awkward, but I have a feeling that I would constantly fight with him over the subject. I want to date someone who respects animals enough not to eat them.<br><br><br><br>
Veg*ans all the way! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/notworthy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":wayne:"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/hump.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":hump:">

I probably would, just because I'm so picky when it comes to guys to begin with. If I added another level to it, I think it would be really hard to find anyone at all.<br><br><br><br>
By the way, anyone know of ways to find other teen veg*ns in your community/region?

I would prefer not to, as it is a major part of my life and it would be better for him to share animal rights with me, ya know..to share the biggest part of me.<br><br><br><br>
But, it wouldn't really be a deal breaker. Depends on the guy, really.

<span style="font-family:'Comic Sans MS';"><span style="font-size:xx-small;">I've honestly never thought about it. I'm currently not interested in dating at all. There aren't any vegetarian guys around here.<br><br><br><br>
If it came down to it, I would rather he was veg*n, but since that isn't going to happen, I guess it'll have to do omni. I don't know about marrying. Yeeesh. Haha.</span></span>

No way. I could never, ever date a non-vegan. Ever. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br><br><br><br>
(If I were single. My fiance is vegan.) <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/hamster.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":hamster:">

I agree with PurpleCow. "I would date a meat eater, as long as he respected my decision and was a great guy" My boyfriend is that way. He told me that he couldn't accept a vegan diet though. Today was my first day as a vegan, but he doesn't really know this....<br><br><br><br>
My bf loves trying new recipes, so he doesn't have a problem with vegetarian cooking. Vegan is too restricted according to him and "extreme."

I would date, and if I ever get the right too, marry a non-veggie person. It doesn't really matter to me, as long as they understand that this is my desicion, and if they don't agree with it then they can take a hike.

Yes. Fortunately, my boyfriend decided to go vegetarian when I did. We'd been best friends for three years, and had always talked about it, so, I lucked out.

It would definitely be an added plus if they were vegetarian, but I would date a meat-eater. Being vegetarian/not being vegetarian is not as important to me as them being loyal, loving, etc.

My girlfriend is pretty much a meat fiend, and its very hard to find food for her to eat also since she is SO picky. I really love her though, and seriously could spend the rest of my life with her. She did say though if we are together for quite some time she would eventually try and go veg. Its hard for her too since her whole family eats lots of meat. Luckily they don't care about me being vegetarian and always have salad for me when I go there to eat dinner. Kissing my girlfriend though...hahaha. If its REALLY meaty meat, like ribs, steak, etc. I won't kiss her unless she has brushed her teeth. If its something small like pepperoni on pizza, chicken nuggets, etc. as long as she has swished and had some stuff to wash it all down, then I will kiss her. She completely understands and does not mind. I don't really care that she eats meat, its not too big of a problem for me, but I really really would like her to try now and go vegetarian or at least cut back some. She supports me a lot, and Im glad that she isn't trying to get me to eat meat. I've been vegetarian my whole life, and have had tried meat a couple times when I was like 5 and it didn't go very well. I don't plan to start, and I won't and she is completely fine with it. I'll get her vegetarian one day though, hehe.
