Modern dating is challenging as it is, but dating as a vegan is a whole different level of problematic.

He later texted me, saying he’s self-aware enough to know that he will struggle to date ‘someone like me’. Of course, he also asked to remain friends – why is that still a thing?

Thankfully, after years of skimming through the ghosts of Nashville, I found a keeper who supports me in my lifestyle. He never complains about the food I make for us.

He was very concerned initially about the difficulties our children would face being raised vegan.
