    Hey foofo here :blush:

    I'm a vegan newbie who tries to figure out the veggie dating scene since my transition. I've joined few Facebook groups but I was wondering if you guys know of any dating sites out there? Maybe we could create a repertoire.

    So far I've visited those sites but most of them since to be down and very old:
    There's a new one I've found that looks awesome and modern! I have yet to create a profile but maybe you guys have heard of it? I think it was made by vegan volunteers which is neat.
    Anyway, let me know if you have other apps to suggest, that'd be really nice :yum

    hi foofoo

    On Spiritual Matchmaking you can search quite specifically on food lifestyle preferences.

    My last long-term romantic entanglement was with an omni I met right before I began going vegan nearly a decade ago. At first I did dumb things like let him eat a cheeseburger in front of me while I sipped at my diet Coke, but later I told him matter-of-factly my ethics, and from that point he never ate meat in front of me and if I gave him food, it was plant-based/vegan. If he didn't like it he could buy his own food or eat elsewhere.

    I've had good luck with omni guys who liked me who took me to a vegan restaurant on a date, was a good sport about ordering a vegan pizza with me, or respectfully at least wouldn't eat meat in front of me.

    I once was in a relationship long time ago (my first real love) with an omni who mocked me when I was vegetarian (at the time) by saying things like River Phoenix wouldn't have died if he had a steak, stupid things like that - I would NEVER tolerate that now, and I would also not date someone who was comfortable eating meat openly in front of me.

    I'm still open to dating an omni who could is open to being "flexitarian" i.e. hardly ever consumes animal products and not in front of me, but I prefer having a partner who is at least vegetarian. I'm single now and have a male friend I've known for half my life who has been a lacto-ovo vegetarian since he was 12. I admire the fact he was brave and strong enough to stand up for animals at such a young age, even if he isn't vegan now. Someone like that would be a really good candidate for me, though the ideal is a vegan mate, obviously. It's sad there are fewer vegan men. Vegetarians are about equal to women.

    I would support this dating app or website 100%. It's been 5 years now since I've been in a relationship. I've had opportunities, I just feel like our morals and values never line up. I feel like women have liked the idea of my choices and values but don't actually agree with them. Those are the ingredients for a disastrous relationship.

    I agree Mathias - I could not stay with someone whose values are so completely different - my spouse and I met online back in 2000 and there are some things that we don't agree on however our journey to plant based eating was taken together with ups and downs along the way. I remember a conversation we had, before we met in person, that was about "garlic" and how we could never tolerate dating someone that didn't love garlic. Little did we know that all vegetables and starches would become vital to us, not just garlic.

    All the best with your search! Emma JC
