Vegetarian dating meat eater
Recently however I went on a date with someone who as it turned out was a vegetarian (had I known that beforehand, I probably wouldn't have asked them out).She was nice and we got along fine, but I just don't see myself dating a vegetarian.For types of vegetarian foods, see vegetarian cuisine. Such ethical motivations have been codified under various religious beliefs, as well as animal rights advocacy.
She'll only cook stuff without meat (which I don't consider proper food) and I'll only cook stuff with meat in it (and I'm pretty good at it! Has anyone else been in such a situation before, if so how have you handled it?He eats a lot of vegan meals when I cook but still has meat for his lunches or when I am not cooking. He has said he admires me for my choice and it really is a non issue with our relationship. you could definitely miss out on some great guys if you narrowed your dating pool to just veg'ns! As far as my husband and I, when we met in college we both ate meat (although I was raised a vegetarian, so I had just started eating meat when I went off to school! Early last year I went back to my vegetarian ways and I felt really good about it, was eating healthier, and felt better (ethically) about my food decisions. I never pushed him into it or really even talked about it (because I thought that would be impossible! I cant imagine how pissed off I would be if my SO did something like that.We have talked about raising a child and he is supportive of a diet, especially during his early years, that is vegan. My husband was the typical "meat & potatoes; nothing is a MEAL unless it contains large amounts of meat" type until he actually turned vegetarian himself mid-last year too (yes... Respect is key to any successful relationship and that includes respect for each others personal life decisions. I have often suspected family members of this type of behavior, but NEVER my husband.Those with diets containing fish or poultry may define meat only as mammalian flesh and may identify with vegetarianism.I just wanted to see how other people have dealt with this issue in case they've come across it. Absolutely love meat and have it with every meal and am not bad at cooking it.
