♦ Whizarian - a diet exclusively of cheez whiz®
Well, if you're going to do something, do it all the way.
♦ Don't add any of these!
I Believe Simplicity is the KEY here...
♦ Don't add any of these!
So many of these labels are for people who are not really vegetarians at all,just wannabes. That said, I do find the "whizatarian" option pretty cute. "Breathatarian" sounds like a great way to lose weight.
♦ Ovo-vegetarian - vegetarian who eats eggs but not dairy

♦ Change Vegetarian to Ovo-lacto-vegetarian; it's more descriptive
eating fish and birds is called carnivore and is in no way vegetarian ,should be excluded from this site
♦ Whizarian - a diet exclusively of cheez whiz®
Vegan or vegetarian, simple...if you eat fish you're not vegetarian if you eat chicken on a Tuesday...not vegetarian, if you only eat meat if no veggie option is available on the menu you're a carnivore...???.
♦ Pescetarian - mostly vegetarian, but eats fish
Please add Pescetarian because it offers more variety.
♦ Don't add any of these!
I expected to find vegetarians and vegans on a site like this. Instead I find a lot of meat eaters. Having a salad with your steak doesn't make you vegetarian, semi-vegetarian, or any other type of vegetarian. It just makes you a meat eater. The same thing goes for pescetarian. Fish are animals. Fish eaters don't belong on a vegetarian site any more than cow or dog eaters.
♦ Ovo-vegetarian - vegetarian who eats eggs but not dairy
Eggs are starting to taste too much like dead flesh.... makes me grin !

I would rather see this site be completely vegan! Anything else is eating animals. I do love that you have raw and fruitarian listed, however.

I think we need to accept that everyone is on a different stage of their journey and if they can find support they will continue to evolve. Remember what it was like before you went vegetarian or vegan. I think they should all be welcomed at this site. If a pescetarian  falls in love with a vegan on here it won't be long before we can add another vegan to the clan!!!

so many descriptions of diets. much. no perfect. at least for me. I fall short from time to time. i prefer healthy and vegan.
♦ Don't add any of these!
I could possibly entertain "Nearly-vegetarian" as a meaningful category. The rest are counterproductive.Funny isn't it, how something as simple as a label can be either empowering or restrictive & divisive.

Conserv "vegetarian" it will keeping the question still open lol also Unity ;)
Don't divide too much with devil's area lol but it is good to give the possibilty to tell more about each individuality ;)
Also just think about declining all of them between raw and cook or something as rawcook lol
specially for the 0.1 to 5% like jungle because after all we have to rebalance flexitarian anyway lol

I believe it's helpful to know what category a person relates to.
♦ Don't add any of these!
I am a vegetarian and want to stay that way. I would resist the tendency for the site to become dominated by vegans. At the same time I abhor the idea of flesh-eaters on the site.
♦ Breatharian - consumes no food and obtains all nutrients from the air
I would like to meet a Breatharian, but I am a bit skeptical ;-)

A lot of vegetarianism but I prefer vegan in my diet back to basic original design simple palatable but nutritious......
♦ Lacto-vegetarian - vegetarian who eats dairy but not eggs
Eggetarian.. should be included.
♦ Don't add any of these!
There's vegan and then there's pseudovegan.
♦ Don't add any of these!
Animal product is animal product. There's a million sites for people who eat that. Let's keep this one site focused on the green.
♦ Don't add any of these!
It seems, to me, it would rather defeat the purpose of this site.
♦ Don't add any of these!
there is NO difference between consuming flesh, dairy or eggs-either one willingly supports the exploitation, suffering and death of non-human animals or they do not. all of these iterations fall under the non-vegan category and are therefore morally equivalent.
♦ Breatharian - consumes no food and obtains all nutrients from the air
It's difficult enough to find vegan partners without shipping in a load of flesh eaters- there are so many meat eaters on veggie dating sites anyway, we don't need even more, please!
♦ Don't add any of these!
I don't think it really matters what kind of vegetarian you are... and if you eat meat (fish, fowl, sometimes anything), you're not a vegetarian at all.
♦ Don't add any of these!
I wish this would be a place to find only vegan people :)

Why not? Some people are only at the beggining of their vegetarian/vegan journey & they might need more options to fit their current diet/lifestyle. "Vegetarian Going vegan" or "transitional vegan" would be great to add for that reason.
♦ Ovo-vegetarian - vegetarian who eats eggs but not dairy
♦ Lacto-vegetarian - vegetarian who eats dairy but not eggs
Not all of us have been lucky enough to have been born vegan. Many of us started as vegetarians, and before that, meat eaters. People who are vegetarian and eat eggs/dairy etc. are perhaps transitioning to become vegan. Perhaps there is the perfect vegan partner on here for them.
♦ Don't add any of these!
no
♦ Don't add any of these!
No!!  There should be only 2 categories: (1) Vegetarian (2) Vegan. One who eats any animal flesh and/or blood is a carnivore. A vegetarian does not eat animals. A vegan is a vegetarian who does not consume dairy products as well.
♦ Ovo-vegetarian - vegetarian who eats eggs but not dairy
♦ Lacto-vegetarian - vegetarian who eats dairy but not eggs
I very recently (yesterday) joined this site looking for fellow vegans and vegetarians.

I follow a vedic diet.

Its probably a good idea to add ovo & lacto as so many Americans don't know the difference between animal & plant-derived food (especially in terms of ingredients). I heard a TED talk on Reducetarian (reducing animal diet) as being more politically sensitive than Flexitarian which is kind of a joke. If you want a better class of people, they should be sacrificing the species demeaning lifestyles. Most people consider themselves spiritually minded till it comes to practice. I do think transitioning to a lighter diet in phases may be better than all or nothing, eh? Some have non-use of leather goods as part of the pkg, & what about what you feed your cats (if even domesticated pets are allowed)?
♦ Don't add any of these!
No! As it is most people don’t know the difference between vegetarian or vegan. This would cause information overload. It takes great willpower and the ability to debate vegeterian/vegan criticism to be and remain vegetarian or vegan. Those are the ONLY 2 categories that should be on this site. If someone is not a real vegetarian or vegan they can easily note that on their profile.
♦ Lacto-vegetarian - vegetarian who eats dairy but not eggs
I am a vegetarian who eats dairy products but not mushroom,onion, eggs and garlic
♦ Change Vegetarian to Ovo-lacto-vegetarian; it's more descriptive
Some of these choices are clearly tongue-in-cheek! So with that in mind, I'll propose another: "Chegan" - cheating vegan. It describes me when I'm in close proximity to chocolate. I know, I know, dark chocolate can be vegan, but what ya gonna do when its not there? One of the reasons I'm vegan is because I love this planet. (we're destroying this planet faster because of the so called food producing animals) And this planet is the only place in the universe I know to get chocolate! :-)
♦ Lacto-vegetarian - vegetarian who eats dairy but not eggs
♦ Change Vegetarian to Ovo-lacto-vegetarian; it's more descriptive
♦ Pescetarian - mostly vegetarian, but eats fish
Seems that fish is classified as meat, fish is fish, meat is from a mammal, and yes dairy should also be listed also as it is probably the most unhealthily for humans.
♦ Don't add any of these!
A Breatharian, although a liar, or dead, is theoretically vegan. In practice, they are a mystery. So I say no to them ;)
♦ Ovo-vegetarian - vegetarian who eats eggs but not dairy

♦ Change Vegetarian to Ovo-lacto-vegetarian; it's more descriptive
Cheese and eggs eaters are not vegetarians, but I understand they are on the way and could be also mislead by the vegetarian word that has been so misused. Fish eaters don’t belong to site at all, fish are just as much as an animal as a dog, chicken or cow, very very far from a vegetable.
♦ Don't add any of these!
Joined specifically because it's a site for veggie/vegan people
♦ Don't add any of these!
Just keep it Vegan / Vegetarian, too much profile info renders awkwardness if the audience already knows everything :D
♦ Don't add any of these!
Vegetarian means no meat in the diet, so it doesn't seem necessary to add any of the above. I definitely would not want this site to include those who consume any type of meat or fish. Let's keep it vegetarian/vegan!
♦ Don't add any of these!
None of these, though an option for those transitioning could be useful
♦ Don't add any of these!
This is silly. You're either a vegetarian (eat plants, dairy and eggs) or a vegan (eat all plants and no animal products). Chicken and fish are meat, so people who eat them are meat eaters.
♦ Pescetarian - mostly vegetarian, but eats fish
I say a prayer to each fish, and thank them for the protein
♦ Ovo-vegetarian - vegetarian who eats eggs but not dairy
i have not yet done this but, i intend to instead of using a compost bin i will feed my scraps to a few chickens in my backyard and then use the waste for the garden, they lay eggs regardless of what happens so i will give them a good life in exchange for the eggs, also a native Australian bee hive in my garden would over produce honey. would be a waste not to use it.
♦ Don't add any of these!
Of these, the only ethical one is breatherian!
♦ Don't add any of these!
How about adding one that is "whole plant based living, no oils"
♦ Don't add any of these!
Even though the original definition of Vegetarian is equivalent to todays Vegan definition
I have always viewed Vegetarians as someone that eats a little dairy, chicken, eggs and fish from time to time and mostly stays off red meet and pork. I have never met a Vegetarian that does not consume at least one of these animal products.

I thought it was a good idea but I liked the comments below better.  I think adding nearly to the existing categories would be simpler and still be effective.   Perhaps also adding a separate aspiring diet type to the profile would be more useful.

Just add the ones directly relating to a REASONABLY DEFINABLE "vegetarian" diet. ALL others include fowl, fish or are verging on the ridiculous. I am mostly a very open minded person myself...but strictness has to play a part too... MY REASONING is whilst it's good to tolerate vegs who might become vegan. To not label vegets in the specific way for each type is unjust for people potentially coming to know them, and dishonest for both parties subsequently... That is why i tick those 3 boxes for the main 3 veg types. Beyond that is playing with madness and a dis-service to the integrity of vegan`sm.

Pescatarian and Pollotarian are just rediculous, as if fish and birds weren't animals. They have no place here as far as I'm concerned.
I would love for the Breatharian thing to disapear, while I truley believe in mind over matter and that all things are possible, the vast majority of people have nowhere near the capability to achieve that kind of state. People have died and continue to die buying into the Breatharian lie, please don't help spread it.
♦ Don't add any of these!
I really don't see the point in all these different names depending on what part of the animal people eat. You're either eating animals, or you're not. It doesn't really matter if you eat, fish, meat, eggs or dairy. You still get the same animal protein in you, and you are still paying others to torture and kill animals.
♦ Don't add any of these!
Three proposed categories add unnecessary complexity to the distinction between vegan and vegetarian. Four of them simply mean non-vegetarian and the remaining two are literally a joke.
♦ Don't add any of these!
Some people are 'strict' ..It changes through out your life and needs and understanding. You could change to ovo lacto vegetarian but its a bit of a mouthful. People should clarify in the description 'AT THE PRESENT TIME I AM OL VEGE OR VEGAN' , I HAVE BEEN MAINLY VEGE FOR XX years. That may be more relevant to see if it is a phase or not?Also some people do not cook meat at home but might be flexible occasionally eating out? That is more important 'only occasionally eating out' or I'm vege enough but not so much in sex?lol

No continuous flesh eaters belong here on a website designed for vegetarians/vegans to meet, however specifications such as lacto/ovo help distinguish types of vegetarians and are practical for knowing dietary requirements/necessities.
Thank you.

As I have evolved in the process of becoming more of a vegan as learn more and take further steps along the way, I think having further distinction in one's choices could be helpful. I think saying 95 percent plant-based diet would be helpful.

I became a Vegetarian in stages and later Vegan in stages. It may matter to someone. Perhaps instead there should be checkboxes with what you will eat and won't eat now and in the future. Those that are still phasing out various types of animal corpses, are probably not ready for this site. Yet, people may desire to add or eliminate things from their diet, so isn't their path also important? And then the status of the designation we choose could be weighted for strictness (1 to 100%) For example, if I'm Vegan 364 days out of the year and then one day eat a piece of cheese am I no longer Vegan? If I had a slide selector that went from 1 to 100%, I might select 99%. I have known several would-be Vegans, who, due to health issues, were forced to modify their diets back to Vegetarian until they could figure out what they were doing wrong. I certainly don't fault them for that. I have never met anyone who was Vegan from birth. And know that Mother's milk is an animal product.
♦ Don't add any of these!
What about wfpb? That’s what many people are who are vegan due to a health concern. See Forks Over Knives, Engine 2, What the Health, and many other documentaries about Whole-Food-Plant-Based.

♦ Don't add any of these!
Wow they're too many unnecessary categories! There's a large dating site that has ''plant based'' as a diet which you would think would be a vegan or at least vegetarian! But it has no meaning for many women I have contacted and probably even is more meaningless for men!
♦ Breatharian - consumes no food and obtains all nutrients from the air
Never met a Breatharian in my life. Never even knew it existed. I'm exited to meet one. I do fast from time to time. Can wait to exchange some positive vibes and reach new spiritial heights.
