Ok, so I am a regular forum member but have created a separate profile for privacy as I have some ex-boyfriends on tthis site.
If you know who I am, shut it ;) LOL.
Ok, so here's the deal, I'm a STRICT ethical vegan, went vegan overnight years ago, and am almost fully raw 811, 99%. I have always sworn I would NEVER EVER date a non-vegetarian, and a non-vegan. I have for the past few years said no to every single non-vegan and dated men from far away so I could be with an 811-er. I also always REFUSED to kiss a meat eater.
Something flipped. I met a guy and the chemistry is intense. I'm talking all over all round chemistry. Strong spiritual connection, strong intellectual, strong physical etc. etc. etc. I kissed him, and could even taste meat in his mouth, but literally didn't care. I must REITERATE, THIS IS NOT ME AT ALL!! I have NO idea what is happening.
What is up with me? I always swore I would put it in the prenup that if a guy eats a sliver of meat I will leave him...but I'm ACTUALLY thinking I MIGHT be with this guy long term??! But I am trying to think totally logically. He doesn't want to be fully vegetarian. When the honeymoon phase is over, him eating meat will freak me out, and what bout the kid(s)???! Oh, and the ethical issues, why would someone kill and hurt an animal for something as trivial as their taste buds? That;s mean!
Ok, we've only known each ohter for a week, and we are talking long term... (# of kids etc.). I have a strange feelings about him, like nothing I've experienced before, ever. Just beyond this realm, beyond the realm of love or sex, the realm of Unconditional Beingness.
- talk to him and say, "sorry, have to be fully vegan"?? If not, let's end it here. I am unsure if this is best as he isn't even educated about it.
- Do I show him PETA videos? What do I do to educate him on veganism? Buy him books? Is it too early to start doing so? How do I do it so I don't look like I"m trying to convert him?
- Am I leading him on by not telling him right away I want a vegan but slowly intro-ing it to him??
- Do I just take it real slow and be mostly friends and slowly intro him to why I went vegan and see his reaction. Is this misleading him?
- other options??!
Obviously I REALLY REALLY like this guy! Ideas please?
