I'm interested to hear of people's experiences when it comes to vegan/veg dating, and any stories with dating those dreaded carnivores!!

When your veg you want to date veg but you will sorta accept death eaters.
When you go vegan, you want to date vegan but accept vegetarians.

I have dated Vegans, Vegetarians and death eaters.

I will say dating a death eater does cause a lot of issues, being vegan means animal rights is your guiding moral compass and for your partner not to share that passion, it does lead to fights.

Vegans tend to be a lot more emotional in relationships which is actually really great.

Best way to meet other vegheads is to socialise in the veg meet ups, your in VIC which has the biggest veg population in Australia.
Failing that, if your over 18, there is always online dating sites that have food pref searches....

Why do you say its hard out of curiosity?

I was eating meat when I started dating my partner over 4 years ago. I made the switch to vegetarian over a year ago and have been vegan for roughly 4 months. But it is harder to just get him to do the same. It is frustrating, but I know how hard it is to change, especially growing up in a society like ours. I tell him all the facts though and it annoys him but also surprises him often.

I don't think I care too much either way. Sure its a lot easier dating someone vegan, but if I get along well with someone then I'm not going to exclude them just because of their diet.
I was veg when I met my partner who was a meat eater. We never really talked about it too much, he was always happy to eat my veg food and I didn't pressure him about his eating habits. He used to even brush his teeth before making out lol even though I never asked him too :3
After nearly a year he told me he also wanted to go veg as he felt bad eating meat. Then a few years after that he made the decision to go vegan, and after doing a bit of reading online about the dairy industry I decided to do the same. Its funny because we probably have had more arguments about diet and lifestyle as vegans now then we did before. Just because you share similar views doesn't mean you will agree on everything.

I would have to say I would prefer to date a vegan...it's important to me, I think someone who wasn't vegan our interests would be too divergent, our ideals too far apart. Also, I dated someone who  was not vegan or veg and it was impossible. Whenever we went out, someone always went hungry! It's just easier. Also I hate feeling like I'm making a big deal out of where we can eat.

My problem is I have had a massive crush on the same person (meat eater) for 4+ years (decided to go veg middle of this year) and I dunno if I can ever look at someone else the same way again sad

I've been really lucky. Me and my partner have been together 6 and a half years now and we both made the switch from meat eaters to vegan at the same time about 5 months ago. Neither of us would ever go back and both think it's best thing we've ever done.
We're very lucky to be on the same page. I can't imagine how horrible it would be making this journey without your partner or watching them just not get it.

Ditto! 6 and half years too though we went veg together that long ago too and vegan at the same time as well.. I think I was so blessed to have someone to share it all with. It would be a lot harder by yourself.

when I first went veggo my ex boyfriend didnt accept it at all. he continuously tried to make me eat meat against my will so I dumped him because he didnt respect me.
I think if I ever had a partner that ate meat he can cook it himself. but I do agree veggie is better
