    any other vegetarians kind of lose their desire

    for dairy also after a few years? I'm not saying cheese doesn't taste good; it does. but I don't HAVE to have it on everything like I used to. if I'm making a sammich or veggie burger I leave the cheese off. I don't put it on spaghetti anymore. I prefer broccoli without cheese...

    It's one of the best decisions I have ever made.

    But it's hard as I live in the place where I'm the only vegetarian.

    Just because I'm a vegetarian doesn't mean I

    eat healthy all the time, don't get me wrong salads are great, but it's not all we eat.

    any other vegetarians in a mixed relationship?

    I dated a guy once who was very open to vegetarianism and loved everything I cooked. it was great. but my current bf is a total meat head and complains constantly. it's a bummer you know? it feels like he doesn't accept me for me and expects me to change for him. even though he...

    So Irritating

    I love my mother, I appreciate my mother, but it's getting so annoying coming over to her house on Sundays. It's like every Sunday she cooks something with meat in it, and gets pissed because I won't eat it. She's always like, "Well I'm not making another dinner." And I have to...

    You know what annoys me?

    When someone finds out I'm vegetarian and they automatically assume I'm one of those people that forces their opinions on everyone. I don't tell anyone to stop eating meat. I am aware it is their choice and me being vegetarian is my own choice.

    I love the teeth argument.

    you know the one I'm talking about. "humans have canines so we're supposed to eat gobs of meat." however I'm pretty sure that all the great apes have those two. they look more like fangs actually. gorillas and orangutans are vegetarians. a chimp's diet is about 2% meat. they...

    and I love animals. People always joke around with me being a vegetarian and all but in the end they are just joking. I started going vegetarian when I was 14. One thing I dislike is when people confuse vegans and vegetarians. "What's the difference?" I hate when people ask that...

    I'm a lacto-ovo vegetarian.

    Basically I don't eat anything that has a face. No animals. I'm a huge animal lover and I'm only 15.. So everybody gives me a hard time about it. Because apparently "you need meat to survive".. Oh ignorance...

    I'd call myself a Vegetarian/Vegan.

    Honestly, this is one of the few things about my life that I truly cherish and love. I'll honestly never eat another animal again, and not just because it's super messed up what we as humans are capable of putting them through is not only obscene and disgusting, but I as a Vegan...

    I Am a Vegetarian And I absolutely love it.

    I'm not a preachy vegetarian; in fact, a lot of people I know don't even know or remember that I am half the time. It's not for ethical or health reasons (though it truly is healthy), but it's really just a preference. Of course I know a-holes that shove something in my face...

    Great job guys you're half way there.

    I strongly encourage you to go vegan. The dairy industry creates the veal industry, don't look it up it'll hurt to see. You're already doing an amazing thing to better the planet if you can please come a little further. much love - random vegan

    Not trying to attack people,

    but I kinda find it hypocritical how people love some animals so much, but don't think twice about the animal that were murdered for their tastebuds. I know murder is a strong word, but it's true. I think eating meat is one of the most selfish things a human being could do. I...
