`-Not that this has anything to do with dating meat-eaters, but to your last, aescleah: YOU HAVE TO EAT MEAT AROUND YOUR FAMILY TO BE ACCEPTED?!?!?!? -Really?! I'm at a loss for words!

Absolutely NO and HELL NO!!! It's like asking....would you date a cold-blooded murderer of innocents? In fact, I don't even speak to anyone that is not at least a vegetarian and who is not an open proponent of animal rights. In the chatrooms here I block anyone who does not indicate in their profile that they are vegan/vegetarian and that they value the rights of all animals.

Well, I am going to rag on them because it is a selfish choice and an unnecessary choice. You are murdering another living thing, pure and simple. I cannot even stand to be in the same room with a disgusting, cold-blooded murderer of helpless innocents.

`I would not, simply because she wouldn't be able to put up with my constant "trying to convince everybody to be vegan because it's the right thing to do, and it's not hard at all, believe me!"

I don't have a problem with it per se, but I've dated only meat eaters thus far and am kinda appalled.
Besides the idea of kissing them after them eating flesh, it's hard.
When you go out, being vegan pretty much always comes up (given, usually it's a joke and is funny)and then the discussion ensues...sticky business. I do my best to, yanno, present my side without seeming preachy or judgmental (while i don't agree with the choices, who am I to judge them)and at the same time defending my personal choice. Emphasis on personal.
With more people, it's a nightmare. Just last week I went to the beach with my best friend, who's pretty neutral on my choice - she doesn't discuss it ad nose um, at least. When she met dear old meat eater date, they both decided to breach the lines of truce, and a pretty pointless discussion ensued.
Honestly, while i have nothing against it, I'd warn people about that...it can get pretty sticky depending on how open minded or outspoken the person is.

eaters are spiritually blocked, and have accepted violence as a basic part of their lives, which just perpetuates the cycle of violence in the world. I can't be emotionally, spiritually, or intellectually connected with someone like that.
Wow, perfectly stated. It's about ethics and doing what your conscience is telling you is right. If I ever started dating meat eaters or tolerating what they do then I might as well just euthanize myself because a human life lived unethically is not worth living.

Not everyone in this world puts ethics ahead of their self interests. Sure they talk the talk about loving animals and what not but the moment they start getting lonely they throw their principles aside and start making nice with the murderers. There may be a lot of vegans in this world but very few of them really love animals enough to take a stand for them. Like you said, it's quite sad.

`Sometimes it is necessary or productive to tolerate meat-heads. No way, when it comes to relationships, if you have blood on your hands don't come near me and if you drink milk products from other species you're just weird and unsensitive so stay away til you gain some empathy.

So far I've only dated meat eaters, when I started going vegan the guy I was dating, well... he and I would fight alot and he actually had the nerve to list that as one of the reasons why he dumped me!! (I refuse to go near him this day because of some of the other sh*t he pulled)'he had no respect for my decision and as such I couldn't tolerate him, the last I i dated however had respect and was leaning towards semi Veg. So I know its already been said but Its all about respect for the other persons decision and tolerance. Granted I'd prefer my next boyfriend is at least a vegetarian, if i do date a meat eater he needs to respect my decision and not be a jerk about it. Also has been said but yeah kissing them after they ate meat was gross. And again last boyfriend understood that and would warn me if he had just eaten meat. I'd kiss him later.

This is hard to answer because i dont even have many vegan friends let alone partners.I would love to meet a vegan partner it would be a dream come true;it is important to have things in common with your spouse and i can think of no stronger bond than that of two vegans,enhanced by the anti magnetism between vegans and meateaters.I have dated meateaters beforwe but always felt guilty,and only because i could not find a vegan.I would find it difficult to truly love a meateater,if they really didnt care about animal cruelty then i would be a hypocrite to say Ilove you.
Although, i tend to remind myself that its wrong to blame most for eating meat,as most are raised to think its normal from ayoung age(including myself sadly) and lets be honest,we all no that if weve become a vegan,we used to eat meat,and until someone persuaded us otherwise,we would never have thought twice.
But all in all no i wouldnt date a meateater(i probably will if i dont meet a vegan soon though)since i discovered this fantastic site i am going all out to bag myself a veggie!!!Unfortunately they all seem to live in America.But if u think there are no single vegan men out there looking for love u are very wrong,i am virtually shrivelling up with loneliness so dont give UP!!!!!

`I'd much prefer to date a vegan (or at least a veggie). Mainly because the thought of kissing someone who's recently eaten meat makes me feel sick, but also it would save a lot of explanations for the things most non-vegans wouldn't even think about .

I would date a meat eater. If i dont date a meat eater, then i would be limiting myself to dating women. I have been dating a chinese woman for 3 months now. When I take her to a chinese restaurant for dinner, she eats vegetarian soup and chicken in sweet and sour source or chicken chow mein. I am glad i have been going out with her because i am happy to be with her although i think marriage will never happen. I dont pay much attention to what she eats. I pay more attention to looking for a job because if i dont have money to pay my rent, my landlord will kick me out of his house :-o

Oh god, I know just how you feel, what you said nearly brought tears to my eyes. I am sooo lonely out here, I know one male vegan in town and no one else for miles and miles AND MILES! Very lonely. Just dated a meat-eater for a couple of months, disaster, no respect at all, though i respected his choice, as you said almost all of us were meat-eaters until we came to our senses. This one was permanently joking about hitting his dogs, or pulling their ears, or eating sausage sa Ies, or other things that were liable to make me react, and i did. It was all just a big joke to him. The thing is I am now mid-forties, have more or less grown-up kids and don't want to spend the rest of my life alone, i'd just like some like-minded company to snuggle and be close to. I live in farming country, cows and sheep and farmers everywhere, most people eat meat and think i'm nuts. What do you do?
