  • It depends. If it was for health or just preference reasons, that's fine. If it's because you are saving the planet or don't want to hurt animals or some other nonsense, no.

    My grandmother didn't like to eat a lot of meat, there were a few things she liked, a little ham sometimes, but didn't really like beef and really didn't like chicken. She and my grandfather got along fine and it wasn't a huge issue. My sister really only likes chicken, and doesn't care for much other meat. That's fine.

    People have likes and dislikes, and have weird allergies and things that don't digest well. That's fine. I can live with that. Just don't bring your crazy ideology.

  • I’m a foodie and love to cook. I think it would be limiting because I enjoy meat and food is such a big part of my life, but I wouldn’t rule out dating her. I’d be open to trying new recipes that she enjoys, and to trying new dishes. But since she respects my choice, I would respect hers, too.

  • Vegetarian would be no problem, but I feel dating someone vegan might be too much. Mainly it comes down to the difficulty in coordinating meals together. It would be nice to be with someone that you can take turns cooking for, without having to make two entirely different meals, or having (very) limited options in where you go out to eat.

    Vegetarians tend to have a little more flexibility in ingredients and while there would still be some differences in meal planning/restaurants it's still much easier.

  • I am a vegetarian and my boyfriend is basically a carnivore. Even though I don’t eat meat myself, him eating meat is kinda sexy... don’t really understand why. We make it work.

    I still cook things for him with meat in it, I just substitute for myself. I’m not opposed to him eating meat. I guess I’m not squeamish as I’m a medical student and am used to dissections etc.

    It is not necessarily a deal breaker.

      I mean, you're beautiful - but can you stop?

  • I wish I could I could... but I love meat, eggs, and cheese way too much. One of my favorite couple things to do is plan, cook and enjoy a meal together. Plus, i feel like no matter what they say now, eventually I will feel pressured to go with thier die, een if just for financial reasons.

  • I don't care what people choose to eat, as long as they don't comment on my dietary choices or try to justify theirs.

    However, a vegan/vegetarian will automatically be judged by me, as it is a choice that I deem negatively indicative of their intellect/personality.

  • Yes, as long as they weren't dicks about it.

    I'd prefer a vegetarian out of the two, as I think veganism is more extreme, by which I mean, it has a lot more restrictions.

  • Since I'm no joke allergic to soy, beans, etc, I don't really have any other protein source other than meat. Unless I want to live off of protein pills. Meat is my only protein source, which doesn't really make me any harm, since I absolutely love meat. 😊

    • That being said, dating a vegetarian/vegan wouldn't really be an optimal solution for me unless the other person could respect my food allergies. Cooking two different meals everyday seems like a waste kind of food if you cook too much.

  • To each their own, I think the question should be reverse. I dont think most meat eaters would care about seeing someone eat vegatables but I could see how it might upset a vegan or the like watch someone eat animals they think are friends not food.

    • If you bought it at a supermarket the term "free range" means you paid more for the same product. Good job brainlet.

    • @llililili : You sure so assume a lot. I said free range with an "etc.", meaning I didn't just look for range free at a supermarket. But you sure can't fain many converts to your diet, by insulting people.

  • Too much of a difference for me. I like eating though and sharing food with people

  • Im a vegan and I’ve dated 2 “meat lovers” this year and honestly, everything goes fine so long as they respect me. I say “I have strong opinions on it and the only reason that matters is “I want to”” and I encourage them to do research on their own time and even try it for a month but if not, to each their own. I’d like to date a vegan guy but it’s not a big deal as long as there’s mutual respect.

  • No. One, I don't think that person exists. Two, even if *they* are genuinely willing to not care about your food choices, chances are they've got a boatload of friends who do, and they'll beat you over the head about it.

    Frankly, I find most vegans to be utterly rude. I never comment when anyone orders their bowl of twigs and nuts because it's not my business. However, I expect in return not to get harangued about *my* dietary choices. I shouldn't have to explain or defend them.

    So, yeah, even if the SO was that unicorn of a non-meat eater who actually had some manners, I could see arguments coming up when their friends started in on me.

      Anyway, i never made comments on what someone was eating. I only talk about my choices when someone asks.
