Dating someone with a special diet

Eating out is one of the most common dating activities. However, it can come with it’s own problems.


What do you do if you are a vegetarian or have some other dietary requirement?

If you’ve made a major lifestyle choice to be a vegan or vegetarian then you’d be better off stating this before you go on a date. By being open from the start you’ll avoid any embarrassing situations.

Of course, If you’ve met online then your date should hopefully have already spotted this. If you get a chance to put it in your profile then always do so.

If you simply don’t like eating certain food or have an allergy then it’s probably best not to make a big deal out of it. Instead, choose foods that don’t contain these items. You’ll want to focus on what you DO like rather than what you don’t.

After a few dates it’s fine to mention it but don’t let it spoil the romance of your first meal together.

So what do you do if YOU are the meat eater and your date is a vegetarian? While it’s true that you aren’t about to stop eating certain foods, you do want to create the best impression possible. Therefore, rather than avoiding the meat dishes, search out the best vegetarian ( or vegan) restaurant in the area. You’ll get extra brownie points and will also get to try some delicious new meals.
