Connect with vegetarian and vegan friends from all over the world.
Would just like some people's opinion on this subject. I've only been vegan for a year and a bit (veggie for almost 10 years) and a close friend of mine thinks I'm being rediculous because I wouldn't ever consider going out with someone who wasn't vegan..Well I know its probably highley unlikely that I would ever meet the man of my dreams who followed a vegan diet, especially as I've never even met another vegan before but a girl can dream, right?! lol. I wouldnt mind if a person wasn't vegan, but I know I could never be with someone that ate meat. They could be the nicest & funniest person ever, but I think that in the long run our mind sets would be so far apart it would be impossible to be in a relationship. Since turning vegan my whole outlook on life has changed and I've gained such a better perspective on what really matters and what I want to do in life..Its made me alot more compassionate and so much more confident in a way..Which I suppose is a good thing haha :S And I find (through these sites online) that most other vegans/veggies have extremely similar outlooks on life and are all caring and compassionate people.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not looking for any type of relationship whatsoever right now, but even going out with my friends and meeting random guys, I know nothing would ever happen with these guys - Not even a kiss. Even if I fancied them and it was a bit of harmless fun- because they ate meat..Do you think I'm being a bit ridic? My friend just says 'Get over it, it's not like your going to marry the guy,' but even the thought of kissing someone who's ate meat makes me feel a bit sick lol.
She thinks I'm being extremely stupid but she doesn't understand veganism atall. Even thought I've told her about the cruelty and pain we are making animals endure just for our own selfish pleasure, she still shakes her head and makes out that I'm the one thats being crazy, and being too 'extreme!' Grrrrr it just makes me so angry., anyway, back to the point...If I was to ever settle down and have children with someone (Which hopefully I don't lol) then I would 100% bring my children up on a vegan diet. But it would be a million times harder to bring up kids on a vegan diet if one of their parents ate meat.. Or just being in a relationship atall with someone that ate meat..It just wouldnt work!?!?!! would it? What would happen at dinner time? hahaha!! Please someone agree with me, or am I being nuts!? :S I don't mind if you think I am, I'd really appreciate all opinions..Maybe some of you have had this thought, or dated someone who ate meat...
I don't know if I need to rethink, stop being so fussy and just be happy to be with any nice guy regardless of their diet!! haha... So please share your opinion on what you guys think..It would help me alot, Thanks, Jess :) X
