When you're a vegetarian, being hungover means eating a lot of beige foods.

Grandparents can cope with one-half of a couple giving up meat. But as soon as you're in it together, they don't like it anymore.

5. If one of you is a new vegetarian, you'll experiment will all kinds of meat alternatives for a while.

Which the more experienced vegetarian among you will find endlessly funny.

If you're lucky, you might have the choice of matching mushroom risottos or matching stuffed peppers.

7. And if you go out with a group and order sharing plates, the meat eaters will end up eating your mains as their sides.

They'll eat your patatas bravas and make you pay for their cured meats. It always happens.

8. But then they'll split the cost evenly.

And you'll look really stingy if you complain.

9. The same will happen whenever you order takeaway as part of a group.

And if you eat even one measly prawn cracker, everyone will have a lot of opinions about it.

14. Eating the same foods means you'll actually get pretty good at cooking.

Cooking together is way more fun than cooking alone.

15. And if you invite friends over for dinner, there will always someone who is surprised that vegetarian food can actually be really nice.

16. Unless you serve them quorn. In which case someone will tell you it tastes like "cheap meat".

Thanks so much, bye.

17. Your non-veggie friends will stress about inviting you over for dinner.

Especially if they're inviting you to a barbecue. Which means you often end up bringing your own food to eat.

21. But most of all, you'll start to really enjoy cooking together.
