So I just started dating this guy and he is really sweet and he's everything I'm looking for, the only problem is that I'm a vegitarian and I'm kind of big when it comes to animals rights and my boyfriend hunts. We were upfront with each other from the start but I'm not sure if this is going to be a problem or not. Thoughts, advice, anything!

Lots of long-term couples have issues they disagree on, so it's not necessarily a deal-breaker.
Being upfront with each other was a good start. Try to avoid automatic responses or replies to your "hot button" issues. (I can get a little preachy about some subjects, so I've learned to bite my tongue and see a topic from another person's perspective before I rant and rave).
And remember: being a hunter (or vegetarian) is only one aspect of your personality. If some of his habits bother you, try focusing on his other traits you like. Perhaps you can both learn to appreciate a different point-of-view, even if you don't agree 100%.0
