According to new data released by Veggly, which is the world’s leading data app for those who are vegetarian or vegan, over half of vegans refuse to date someone who eats meat. Although some may not be surprised by this, it’s nonetheless interesting to have some actual numbers in regards to what percentage of vegans consider meat-eating to be a relationship deal-breaker.
For the poll, Veggly used 7,400 participations from around the globe, asking them a series of personal relationship-based questions. They found that a slight majority of vegans – 52% – wouldn’t even consider dating a meat-eater. A much lower, but still substantial, number of vegans also stated that they wouldn’t date a vegetarian: 12%.
The poll found that many vegetarians also prefer not to date those who eat meat, but are a little less concerned about it: 39% of vegetarians, or around 13% less than vegans, say they would never date a meat-eater.
