Bruce Friedrich talks about dating in a recent PETA podcast. He says something like, "there's no downside to dating meat-eaters. He says if you date only vegetarians
or vegans you're excluding a bunch of wonderful
people who might become vegetarians or vegans later.
Here's a link to the podcast, which talks about other interesting things, too, so definitely check it out
First, yes there are downsides. He's wrong about that. Being vegan or vegetarian is not just about the animals, it's also about you. Dating meat-eaters can be very uncomfortable for some vegetarians or vegans. Dating is hard enough. Why make it harder? If you want a vegetarian or vegan companion, don't count on converting a meat-eater; start by dating vegetarians or vegans!
I say that from experience. Everyone is different, but for me - and I didn't fully realize it until it happened - I could only truly fall in love with a vegetarian.
My love advice is the same as my financial advice
as my animal advocacy advice as all my other advice...
First, get your priorities straight: what do you want?
Next: how do you get it? What's the process to achieve your goal?
Then, work on it. Take it one step at a time and try to achieve that goal.
Here are some more vegan-themed podcasts:
And here are some veg dating websites:
Are you waiting for someone to date and convert you? Don't wait! Go vegan now! You know you want to ;)
