2016: The year of the vegans.
Last year, if you had told someone you don’t eat milk or eggs, you would have been treated to the most disgusted face a person can pull. However, times have changed. Don’t eat chocolate? Your loss!
Veganism is the fastest growing healthy eating fad to storm the 21st century. Let’s face it, it’s a great life choice. Multiple studies have found that vegans have substantially lower death rates than meat-eaters and that they’re also helping to save the planet, not just themselves. But it is pretty difficult.
If you’re a vegan, good job, you’re morally superior in every way. The rest of us aren’t as strong as you are.
The most recent survey carried out by dating app TrueView shows that 34% of these people wouldn’t want to date a vegan.
The survey also highlighted that males are less likely to date a vegan than females. Sounds very cave man doesn’t it; ‘’Me man, man eat meat.’’ Believable nonetheless. So many British people, regardless of their gender, would rather give up a limb than a sausage and bacon fuelled fry up.
But why does it matter if your partner eats meat?
Surprisingly, but delightfully, 28% of those surveyed said that they considered eating junk food the most off-putting diet habit a potential partner can have. This proves that healthy eating is important to a lot of the population. Yet surely this would mean people are more inclined to date a vegan?
Researchers found that an astonishing 77% of people wouldn’t be open to giving up meat for a partner. Vegans, by all means try, but don’t get your hopes up. We British are stubborn at best, but you probably know that by now.
