Nope, I tear flesh from bone. The woman I would be dating/ marrying must do the same or no deal.

There are far too many steaks to eat to be annoyed by someone who would object to me eating them.

I was vegetarian for years and always lived with omnivores. They loved that I never ate their bacon.

I'd date a vegetarian if they didn't try to dictate what I ate.

To me, that would be the issue. It's like smoking. I know very few non-smokers who can live with a smoker without constantly trying to reform them. Even aside from the indisputable health situation, they are turned off by the sights and smells that go along with the habit.

Hear, hear!
I don't eat meat, but I date lots of carnivores. It's not usually a problem.
The problems stem from gluten-free, nut-free, dairy-free, HFCS-free people. What a pain in the butt.
I won't even go out to eat with my BFF any more. She tells me to pick a restaurant, then vetoes all of them, saying she can't eat anything there.

Does being a plant based pescatarian count as a full "meat eater?"

I've known a vegetarian female friend who tried to give up eggs, but couldn't, so just stuck with vegetarian everything else. She ended up giving it up altogether because...
1) doctor's orders to cut back on carbs and avoid soy. She claimed it was too restrictive without soy.
2) her boyfriend and now husband is a meat eater and was fine with her vegetarianism, but it has been easier to cook meals now that meat's back on the table for both of them.


As for me, in theory I'd try to make it work, but as others have posted, in practice I don't know if it would work out.

It means you eat meat yes, unless you're like Bill Clinton and only eat fish every once in a blue moon then I'd consider you a meat eater or fish eater to be more precise.

No hell no, because of this right here. Every vegan or vegetarian I've ever known spent most of their time arguing with me about eating meat. I'm a carnivore. Deal with it. I don't care what you eat or don't eat, just. shut. up.

I agree with this. I'm sorry if your diet restricts you so much. How about I'll bring something to your house that I can eat and you can cook for yourself. Oh wait, can't do that either, because then they say, "Oh I am so jealous that you can eat that, please don't do it in front of me."

Vegan and vegetarian women are too high-maintenance for me.
