This reporter flirted with donning her son’s “Meat is Murder” T-shirt, which felt a tad obvious and then promptly opted for her typical uniform (jeans, shirt, boots, all slogans) and headed to the vegetarian Saturn Café, the site of the meatless speed dating meetup. Can you imagine how awkward it would be for speed daters to have a reporter with notebook in tow chronicling, for public consumption, their attempts at meeting a soulmate over vegetable taquitos?The Veg Speed Dating night was hosted by Berkeley-based Karine Brighten, 29, a vegan who met her husband (also vegan) online.
If you decide you’ll only date vegans, it’s a great idea to take things offline and go try to meet people in real life.
Go to vegan Meetups and events in your city/area, get to know people in your local community. Vegan Street Festival last year was packed with ten of thousands of people, many of which were not vegan but were totally down for trying vegan food.
Not all vegans will be online dating, so it’s nice to go physically see who’s out there. Even if you are open to dating omnis, vegan events are a great place to meet vegan-friendly/curious omnis. If this is not an option for you, see if there are online vegan events you can join or participate in.
Green singles, Vegetarians, Vegans who care about global warming, animal testing, etc!
