"It depends," is a common reply. Afterall, there are various types of omnivores. On one end of the spectrum there's the conscious omnivore type who is concerned with animal welfare issues, the type who observes meat-free Mondays and buys only humane certified meat. And at the other end of the spectrum there's the die-hard carnivore who is either ignorant concerning how animals are raised or worse yet -- uninterested.
But let's face it, the vegetarian dating pool can be quite shallow. So what's a vegetarian single to do?
Longtime vegetarian Katie W. shared her views on dating and marriage and explained how she feels that as long as a potential partner is respectful and considerate of her way of life (no meat jokes!) she wouldn't rule out dating a non-vegetarian.
We've discussed the subject with a few other vegetarians (all vegans) and 6 out of the 7 individuals we questioned said they would definitely NOT date a meat-eater.
But on the bright side, there's internet dating! So if you're a vegetarian or vegan who resides somewhere in cattle country surrounded by barbeques and rodeos, take heart!!
