"The time has come to have more Vegan babies, from Vegan parents, as we need a new generation to start the 'Ripple Effect' for our fellow animal friends"

I have a great love & respect for vegetarian & vegan people. We don't need to kill any animals to feed our stomach coz its not burial ground to burry dead animals.

I've had an omnivore partner. Too difficult for me to share a greasy kitchen and washing dirty dishes. Plus, I'd prefer to cook for them.

Well, l prefer to meet a veggie partner but l can't imagine converting anyone to veggie diet as this decision is individual and comes from somebody's hearth.

I'm nongmo dairy free gluten free also filter water and holistic eater and drink out of glass and hydro flask no water bottle chemical free person I react to floride chloride and chlorine don't even take pills or vitamins do to reasearch I've learned. Allergy free person and holistic in everything I do even medical as best as I can keep learning as I go. All about soulotions not interested in playing games girl will go for me and be forward and positive optamistic and amazingly open and cuddly and into phiscal touch specially with a soulmate like mine is ment to be. Also eats what I eat and believes in making dreams come true and builds me up when Im douting or down as I will do for her and wipe her tears and watch shows I like as such as romantic and any hero and comedy romatic and believing in dreams and fun shows to laugh at. Also the girl is not shy is my preference but ok if she's quite just want a great heart felt listener who believes in dream board dreams and is there for me no matter what loyalty and ok with my past and believes in soulmates and again all about togeatherness and she will ask me out and ask me to marry and as she does that I will ask her the same time she ask me to marry her. Any question ask I'm all about soulotions and very deep about what's going on supernaturally do to experiences mostly extra terrestial and cosmic disclosure type of understanding and law of attraction and attention and brain thought science and meditation and water rice in jar study of creating your manifested reality that's what I require and shall have is if it's now :).

I was once an omni. I can handle someone who is omni provided that they are open to trying new things and learning. The 'bacon tho' crowd can get lost, though.

I would want my partner to share this important view of the world with me.

I believe being a veggie by choice is more important rather than converting one to like veggie.

No excuse not to be vegan!

I'm on here to meet a man who has vegan principles and who therefore maintains a vegan diet. It's this or nothing for me. Xx
I'll keep looking; a veggie partner is high priority for me.
I don't understand the excuse that some are willing to accept a partner who chooses to kill because it's their choice, as if killing is a choice on par with what color shirt someone likes. Would they also accept a racist partner because racism is a choice? I want a partner I can respect. Not someone who kills for pleasure and leaves dead animals in my fridge. Besides, I think she'd get tired of me always giving her leftovers a proper burial in the garden.
I'll keep looking; a veggie partner is high priority for me.
No way. I haven't waited this long to cave now. I hate the idea of killing or hurting animals and could never be with someone who didn't care about such things.

no way or how

An omnivore would be ok if she wants to become vegan.

I don't like the smell of dead animal in my fridge. It's very hard to convert some one into vegan......

I believe vegan is the only healthy way to live your life!

Once a person sees and accepts the idea that animals are being abused at all levels, it is difficult to understand a Human being whom continues to  allow cruelty to be part of their life. If it can be brought home to someone, that they do not act or think rightly, gladly will they change. For a good person seeks after truth by which no one is ever harmed, but he , or she , is harmed whom continues in their deception of themselves.

Ethical Vegan Only! Which is the Same Thing As Vegan! Plant Based and Vegan are NOT the Same Thing! Look up the Definition of Vegan- Donald Watson- Not ALL Plant Based Foods are Vegan like Palm Oil and Sugar, because of deforrestation and bone char, there is 1 meaning for Vegan, 1 meaning ONLY. If your screwing a non Vegan u cannot say your Vegan, U are Absolutely hurting Our Non human Friends when u do that! Your saying u won't take part in Thier murders but it's cool if others fo! FUCK THAT! NOT VEGAN! And vegetarian is NOT Good Enough! They are Tortured and raped for Thier Eggs and Baby's Milk too! Like REALLY? Veganism Is An OBLIGATiON NOT a diet, not a fad, not hipster nonsense! EDUCATE YOURSELVES- BE VEGAN!!!!!

Couldn’t imagine not being with a vegan.

I am 95% for veggie partner. It is a high priority for me. However if I meet a non-veggie whom I have a lot in common with it is not to say they/he may change their/his lifestyle or that they/he may not open their/his eyes in the future. I would say not to get too serious with a non-veg person before you are 100% sure he or she is soulmate material for you.

There are very few male vegans

To have a partner that is into eating meats benefits me none. How can I think about how much I love you while I watch you rip the meat off a rib that came from a helpless animal? Dating someone whom is also conscious of this is the only wish for me. I will remain happily (for the most part) single until

Sorry meat eaters but you just don't smell all that good

I would not prepare meals for a non vegan so they would have to fend for themself!

I don’t think I can force anyone to convert but I’m sure they might be inspired to go veggie after seeing the delicious food I have.
I'll keep looking; a veggie partner is high priority for me.
Been there … done it! Definitely need a vegan partner! Snuggling and cuddling on the couch with someone who has just eaten a steak or portion of ribs … no longer cool!

Kissing someone who had just eaten animal flesh.. eww...
I'll keep looking; a veggie partner is high priority for me.
I like to think that I'm open to exploring and learning about a new partner; but, eventually, we are going to bang heads on the issue of using animals for food. Of course, I'd try to open his eyes. But in the end, I don't want to have to change my mate and if that person refused to evolve, it would breed resentment and change the light in which I view that person.

Have done the omni thing for a long time, this lifestyle is important so I am looking to meet someone who is strictly vegan.
I'll keep looking; a veggie partner is high priority for me.
I can't imagine otherwise. I doubt I'd have many values in common with a meat eater anyway.
I'll keep looking; a veggie partner is high priority for me.
I've tried converting partners to veganism - in my experience they've only done it to please me and once the relationship ends they go back to eating animal flesh and sécrétions. I want someone who is committed to ethical veganism for the animals first and engages in activism to promote veganism.

It makes it easier -
More congruent

It's hard to keep someone from eating what he was taught to take since his or her childhood

As long as said partner is nonjudgmental of my lifestyle I will return the favor. Perhaps I can live by example but I'm not going to push anyone to convert.

Vegan only!!!!!Dairy and eggs is the flesh industry plus rape and child murder

Its every individuals choice wether to be plant based or not. Lol conversion doesnt work.

It's part of who I am, and I'd want to share that with my partner.
I'll keep looking; a veggie partner is high priority for me.
I can find middle ground on so many things, but this is one of the most important and deepest of my beliefs and I’m willing to wait to find someone who shares this type of compassion for all living things. There are things I can give up, but living in a cruelty-free relationship isn’t one of them for me right now.

if the ethical common basis is not there, on what foundation can you build a serious relationship?!

I find that it works for me to have similar health and dietary oreferences.

I just can't kiss someone who's just eaten a dead cow / pig etc, and I don't want to convert someone. If they haven't been interested before (and the world is interested, and there's lots of info out there) that's not a great start - and I like well informed people.

non-vegans must turn to the Bright Light side of the Force of course! ;-)  when i was teen turning veg'n, Great Spirit granted me a special divine dispensation which was a grand heart sensation: my heart felt expanded to equal/Oneness with vast universe/creation, at one with Limitless Heart of "GOD is LOVE". so, evidently, it appears Great Spirit is also of the correct opinion that human hearts without Veganism are squelched. Veganism is required to slough off the jaded callous over the human heart. veganism is pre-requisite for the human heart to achieve it's infinite potential ! Vegan humans can co-create heavenly paradise peace on Earth ! <3

It just doesn't make sense to be with someone who doesn't have the same basic ethics. Converting isn't likely, I will always help someone, but it's got to be their own desire and choice.
I'll keep looking; a veggie partner is high priority for me.
Its hard but I dated an omnivore (lol) once and she got me into junk food again. I started feeling instantly sick. Didn't last, back to Vegan and feel great! Pretty sure I will have to wait but its worth it.

Have to share your life with meaningful people. But God damn it's hard to find vegans.
I'll keep looking; a veggie partner is high priority for me.
For me common values are essential. What could be a more basic value than what you are willing to kill and under what circumstances?

Dated alot of meat eaters not a lot of vegans. I think it would be refreshing to be with a vegan for the first time.
I'll keep looking; a veggie partner is high priority for me.
As a lifelong vegetarian, and 25+ year vegan, I am more committed than ever to the lifestyle. At this point, I realize that it would not be possible to have a partner who didn't share the same core values. Although I am somewhat flexible, depending on their mindset, they must be at least already be on the same path. I would love to convert the world, but not a potential partner.
I'll keep looking; a veggie partner is high priority for me.
There are so many people in this world. There are more people than ever living on a plant-based lifestyle. I need that to be a commonality and as a baseline. Yep, I'm more than happy to just keep on looking :)

Prefer someone on the same level as myself about animal abuse

The values behind one becoming vegan are profound and often impact on other aspects of one's personality.

Just clashes with my health values. I want us both to feel comfortable with eachother and being vegan plays a huge part. I always assist with your growth as a friend but choice is always the individuals. I will just wait as I have never kissed a vegan before and I'm sure there is a huge difference!

The way we think and believe, shapes us. I ve tried w omnivores all my life. It was ok i suppose until now. I can’t be with somebody who doesn’t care for the suffer that animals are expose. I feel like sleeping with a murder. And also, I don’t feel respect for a person like that. So, vegan must be or willing to become.

I can only feel strong emotional connections with vegans. I am open to non-vegan friendships (I'd be super isolated if I wasn't :P )

My wife of 20 yrs was an omnivore, but I would prefer, or want to convert a partner to my lifestyle.

I would need a compatible vegan for a life partner.

I am a vegan for the animals not for myself, in other words it's bigger than just me. We exist in a non vegan world, the more we rope ourselves off, the longer it is going to take to achiever the change we all want to see. Yes, a mixed relationship has to have rules and restrictions but it is doable. If you are vegan simply for selfish reasons, why should another person's individual choice matter. If you a veg and not vegan and have issues with what others eat, isn't that kind of hypocritical. If you have common interests with someone, in time you may influence their food choices, attempting to convert will likely end things and worse it validates the vegan stereotype that prompts so many to ridicule and hate on us.

Being vegan is an ethical choice for me. I’m not willing to share my life with people who aren’t on the same page any longer

Humans are frugivores, we thrive when we eat mainly fruits, then young green leaves, some raw nuts, seeds and occasional insects (in figs, cherries, apples...). Most people believe that we should eat meat or dairy for health reasons which is a myth. Vegans often say that they do it for animals, believing that they harm themselves. They don’t understand that not eating animals is in our nature.

JUST BASIC VEGETARIAN SOMETIMES VEGAN . BUT VOLUNTEERED 4 THE VEGAN CAUSES FOR 10 YEARS. DESTROYED MY SPINE AND CAREER.

Sharing food is such an important part of our social life, plus our food choices reflect our values. I want to be with someone I can respect and share this part of life with.

I'm looking for friendship with others that value life the same as I. The only reason I'm getting on this is to meet other people that eat and water-fast the same as I do. I am in search of others like myself.

one must at least try to convert !

It depends, obviously having a solidly vegan partner is a big priority, and I will never date anyone who jokes about the suffering of other species, but if someone has potential I'll stay with them, if I can get them to stop eating the corpses of innocents than I will, and there's no long term potential if they don't go vegan eventually
