I want to ask an omnivorous woman I don't know out to dinner and I want to pay for her meal without insisting she order vegan food on this first and possibly only date. I would think it is incompatible with ethical veganism to financially support animal exploitation under any circumstances but for this: if I do not take her out on the date, she will eat an omnivorous meal that day or evening anyway. By going on a date with a vegan, perhaps it will plant a seed in her mind that will eventually lead to her going vegan herself. Ethically, it would be preferable to only date vegan women or to make any woman who wants to eat non-vegan on a date pay for her own meal, but for the sake of discussion let's just eliminate those two possibilities. I am interested to know what people think about this. Thanks.
