Problems of dating dating someone with a terminal illness
So, even though we’ve pretty much figured it out NOW, we had our ups and downs in the beginning.If you plan on dating a vegetarian or vegan in the future – while you’re a die-hard meat eater – be prepared for the following things: I mean, you CAN share food if you eat all of your SO’s vegetarian food… But honestly, if you want to order meat when you go out – and you should, if that’s what you feel like doing – you can’t share. I love sharing food because you get to try different things and really get to know the other person’s likes and dislikes.It’s SO hard to find decent places that have BOTH options…and I know my boyfriend wouldn’t exactly be thrilled if I picked a vegan restaurant. It turns out, pastas are pretty much the only guaranteed vegetarian dishes at most restaurants. I couldn’t imagine a meal without meat, and it was hard for me to make any meatless recipes at all.But then, I got sick, and it was recommended I start eating more plant-based foods.
Or they might ask your SO strange questions about his or her lifestyle.
I started eating more vegan and vegetarian meals, and now, I would say I eat meat only around half the time.
But that DEFINITELY caused a rift in my relationship, since my boyfriend just doesn’t feel like a meal is complete without meat.
But others go vegetarian for ethical reasons, related to animal welfare or the environment.
You may have never been exposed to opinions like these before, and you won’t understand them at first.
