21 Secrets People Who Date Vegans Won't Tell You

Look, we like you, but enough with the kale already.

1. When you first find out that your hot date is vegan, it can come as a bit of a shock.

2. Early in the relationship you find yourself trying things you wouldn’t normally touch with a bargepole.

3. You've faced serious dinner disappointment at least once as well, and tried to be polite.

4. But as soon as the honeymoon period wears off, you start saying exactly what you think.

5. It takes way longer to get used to their appalling farts than it takes to get used to their taste in food.

6. You're forced to invent truly weird post-sex snacks based on what you can find in their cupboards at 2am.

7. In fact, you often find their idea of what constitutes a tasty treat totally baffling.

8. But eventually vegan food does start to grow on you, and you bore everyone you know with recipes.

9. But despite that, meat-eating friends almost never invite you round for dinner as a couple.

10. You feel sorry for your S.O. at parties and barbecues.

11. It's great when you first find a vegan product that you really, genuinely like.

12. You also discover that loads of foods you already like are actually vegan. Who knew?

13. Despite admiring your boo's principles, there are some foods you can't, and won't, get on board with.

14. You end up learning shit that you really don't want to know, like the fact "free-range" isn't really free.

15. You feel a twinge of guilt whenever you eat something that they can't have in front of them.

16. Unless you're a bit drunk, then you just wave bits of cheese at them: "LOL YOU CAN'T HAVE THIS!"

17. You've ~probably~ made the occasional attempt at becoming vegan if you're in a long-term relationship.

18. You can't escape the inevitable arguments about which restaurant to go to.

19. You can't quite resist taking the piss out of them for not eating honey either.

20. But you get offended on their behalf if anyone else is cheeky to them. After all, that's your job.

21. At the end of the day, you admire their beliefs and conviction and wouldn't change them for the world.
