How to Find Your Vegan Soulmate
Are you a vegan looking for dating advice? We’ve got you covered. Whether you’re a recent vegan convert or you’ve spent years living a plant-based lifestyle, if you’re looking for a love interest with similar values to yours, you’re in the right place. We’ve rounded up the best ways to find your vegan other half…
Become an activist
Getting involved with animal rights organisations is a brilliant way to meet like-minded people. You could make a new romantic connection with someone who’s passionate about the same things as you. And even if you don’t? You’ll make a lot of new friends. Better still, you’ll be making a difference in the world while you’re doing it. A simple Google search will return hundreds of groups to consider, so do some research to find one that’s right for you.
Try dating a non-vegan
Bear with us on this one. Just because someone isn’t vegan now doesn’t mean they won’t change their mind about a plant-based lifestyle in the future. If you’re dating someone and they happen to have a diet with animal products in it, have an open conversation. Explain why you’ve made the choice you did, and how much you’re enjoying this lifestyle. You just might find this person is open-minded enough to learn more. And, while it may be a slow journey, they may well be happy to make some changes to their diet gradually, with the aim of going fully vegan later.
Seek out vegan dating apps
Forget Tinder and Bumble, vegans now have a whole new world to turn to when it comes to dating apps. There are lots out there, but Grazer and Veg, especially, are getting the thumbs up from their users. These apps are both designed in a similar way to Tinder, and involve swiping and matches in the same way, so they’re super easy to use.
Try chatting to other vegans online
If you’re not really into the dating apps thing, consider joining a forum or a social media group to connect with potential new love interests. Not only will you find loads of interesting discussions to take part in, you could find out about upcoming events that might interest you, too.
Hang out in vegan-friendly places
If you’re a vegan looking for a vegan to love, it makes sense to look for potential dates in vegan-heavy spots, right? Geographically, Tel Aviv is said to be the vegan capital of the world, so this sun-soaked Israeli city might be a good place to start. Closer to home, there are lots and lots of vegan-exclusive bars and restaurants to choose from. Vegan hotels are stepping into the spotlight, as well.
