Being vegan and single can be tough. You're vegan and single, so you don't always want to date just for the sake of dating either. You want a partner that shares your morals and values; someone who is compassionate to all living beings. And being vegan means that you are often thinking about the environment and animals in a way that people who eat meat may not understand. That's why when you find someone who can appreciate your vegan lifestyle, you want to stick with them! But that doesn't mean you can't have fun along the way.
Vegan dating is not that different from regular old-fashioned dating at all. You can still go on dates out to eat or you can cook dinner at home. The key is knowing what foods are vegan and planning your date around that. For example, if you make a delicious pasta dish with garlic bread and salad, it makes for a romantic vegan dinner date idea. Plus, there's an added bonus to cooking for someone else.
You take someone on a vegan date because you like them and want to get to know them better. You definitely want to impress them, but it can be hard sometimes. In this blog post, we'll talk about some of the best romantic vegan dates that vegan singles can go on. There are some great ideas in here, so get ready to read on and start planning!
Dinner and a Movie DateThis one is an oldie but goody. It can be difficult to think of date ideas, so why not pick something that has worked for years? For a vegan dinner and a movie date, you can take them out to dinner before watching a movie at home together. You'll want to choose your restaurant wisely. Find vegan restaurants in your area, or even better-in the town where you're going on dates with someone new! For example, Indian or Ethiopian restaurants would both work well because there are plenty of vegan options such as curry and lentil dishes. You might also want to see what restaurants have vegan options before you choose any restaurant. Try to make reservations in advance too, particularly for weekend dates.
If you're vegan, you likely have a lot of vegan cooking books. Or maybe your vegan friends are always giving away vegan recipes they find online! Use your creativity to make a vegan date night that you know they'll love. Either way, try taking some time with someone new to make something special and fun together at home. You can even go on an adventure to the grocery store-there's usually vegan-friendly food everywhere and it's fun to look at new vegan products together. Ultimately, being creative means using what you have in common with someone else. Share something that's important to both of you and enjoy spending time together.
The Vegan Picnic
If you're vegan, odds are that you may have been a vegetarian for quite some time-so this one is for your vegetarians out there too! When you think of going on a picnic, it's fun to entertain the idea that there is no meat involved. If this is an idea you can get behind, then pack some fruit and veggies for your day out in nature or at the park. Just make sure that when you go grocery shopping together that you pick up a vegan lunch along with your fruit and veggies. Vegan lunches such as meatless sandwiches are always great options. Or perhaps try vegan sushi or vegan tacos! This vegan date will be fun and delicious! And don't forget utensils either-you may want to bring silverware for cutting up your food, or maybe even a blanket to sit on the ground.
Sports and Festival Event Date
Vegan dates may enjoy going to vegan sports games or vegan events. Sometimes, they may even be vegan athletes themselves! Look online at local events that are taking place and plan your date accordingly. You can take them to a vegan farmers market as well. Or if you want to do something more relaxing, go for a nice drive and stop by some of the great places in your area that have vegan options for food or gifts. You can both go on a vegan adventure together that involves learning about plant-based foods while also being social. This is always a good time-especially if you live in an area where your town has vegans who enjoy vegan events and vegan sports teams!
The Vegan Adventure
If you're vegan and your date isn't, take them on an adventure. This can be many things. For example, you can take them to a vegan restaurant or a vegan festival, and let them try some of the foods that they've been missing out on. You might also want to consider taking them to watch an animal rights film with you. If your date is up for trying something new and pure, this vegan date will be a great experience. You can also go to a local farm that sells vegan food. You'll get fresh air while supporting sustainable farming practices and maybe even make some friends along the way! Or go for a hike-bring vegan snacks if you end up getting hungry. You'll have a vegan date that's fun, healthy, and adventurous!
Lastly, don't forget that romance doesn't always have to include another person-self-love is important too! Investing time in yourself and your happiness can make you a happier person, which makes the world a better place. Make vegan snacks, watch vegan movies, or read vegan books to remind you why being vegan is so important. You can also take yourself on a vegan date by going for a walk in the park and breathing fresh air while admiring nature-all things that are vegan and romantic too!
There's no wrong way to have fun with vegan singles or anyone else you're dating, so just go out there and do what comes naturally. Happy vegan dating!
