Speaking from experience, omnivore guys suck at picking up vegan girls. Most men will say anything to get in a girl’s pants, right? “No way! Sixpence None the Richer is my favorite band too!”
So why is it that when I bring up that I’m a vegan most men can’t keep up the act and make an effort to relate to me? “You’re vegan? That’s awesome. Tempeh is the jam!” Instead I get something along the lines of “I don’t think we can be friends, I love cheese too much.” If you value something as superfluous as *coagulated milk fat* over spending time with a cool person, I’m not interested either.
Just because someone is not a vegan, doesn’t mean I won’t be friends or start a relationship with them. If you’re a good person and respectful, I’d love to get to know you. It’s those that judge that don’t get any love from me. It goes the same way. Just because you’re a vegan doesn’t mean you shouldn’t give an omni a chance. You never know, they might be open minded enough to try veganism.
In the long run, I don’t think I could end up marrying someone that keeps meat in the fridge, but that wouldn’t stop me from getting to know someone.
Omnis: if you try hitting on someone that happens to be vegan. You’ve got to pick up your game. Mocking my lifestyle is a sure fire way to get rejected. Compassion is a turn on. Give peas a chance. #VegansofIG
