Why is it so important that she eat red meat?




We all have what we're looking for with a S.O. Eating meat is a dealbreaker for me now because I have dated a true vegetarian and don't want to again. I have nothing against them, just wouldn't want to date one.

Don't even go there about her "not being allowed to order what she likes"

If someone on a date for instance, orders a med well burger with American cheese, no lettuce, onion or tomato, I know it won't work.

If someone won't do ethnic cuisines, like Thai, Indian, etc. on a date, then I know it won't work.

If someone's idea of a good meal is chicken fingers, then I know it won't work.

If someone says they point blank never eat vegetables, then I know it won't work.
If someone critcizes me for what I will or will not eat, I know it won't work.

I was just curious. I can understand if they are a millitant veg or vegan but I don't see what the big deal is otherwise.

I'm so flipping glad my SO and I both enjoy the whole art of food. We have that in common. I've dated guys who preferred to drink. Now that's tiresome.

Bottom line: relationships are complex. Food is not a deal breaker, but because everyone must eat, it's good not to struggle with it.

I believe I stated vegetarian from the start, "eating everything except red meat" does not make you a vegetarian, it makes you a person who prefers to not eat red meat.

Yes, I understand and never claimed I was a vegetarian. There ARE people who choose to be vegetarian for health reasons and not because they are against animal slaughter for consumption...again, not me.

But I still don't see what the big deal is. When you go out to eat there is typically something for everyone at a decent restaurant.

Like I said, I can see if she is not flexible and pushes her beliefs on you...that would irritate anyone, but if she is happy ordering a vegetable dish why should it matter?

But, to each his own. I guess I would have deal breakers if I were single, but a persons food preferences would be so far down the list it really wouldn't matter.

I would never be with somebody that likes Chick-fil-A. That place sucks, and the few people that do like it are obnoxious fan boys.

Honestly, I think cooking, eating, and enjoying a meal with your S/O is one of the most enjoyable things in life.
