My boyfriend has been “vegetarian” for about a year and a half. It all started after seeing a screening of the witness. After the movie he said “how can I eat meat now”. I was really excited, and everything was great for a while. Then he started complaining. First about how inconvenient it was to be vegetarian. I didn’t get that, I was always jealous about how many more options he had then me. Then he started saying that it was making him run down and weak. I tried to help make sure he was getting a balanced diet, and really it seemed like he was eating ok. The funny thing is a year ago we were both working out a lot. He was really starting to bulk up, but then he lost motivation. I think because it was interfering with his social life. Later he said it was wearing him down “because he was vegetarian”. These comments bugged the hell out of me. I don’t want him going around saying those kinds of things and giving vegetarians a bad rap.
So honestly I wasn’t too up set when he started eating fish again around six months ago. I thought it wouldn’t make him feel any better and he would see that wasn’t the problem. It didn’t seem to fix anything but he kept on eating it. Just recently it took another turn. One of his favorite foods used to be carne asada and he said he wanted to have it again “one last time before he really committed to this thing”. But that wasn’t the end of it, on Friday he went with his friend to a birthday party. He people having it didn’t know he was coming and didn’t have much food for him to eat. He said he kept eating and eating but wasn’t getting full, so evenly he ate some pork that they had. I don’t get it, and I don’t like it, but most of all I just wish he would stop calling himself a vegetarian!

hey, im sorry to here about that madcat :(

it does sound though that you bf is making any excuse he can not to be veggie. which is doubly sad as veggie is so so so so easy.

veganism is obviously a very large part of who you are, and the way that your bf is acting it seems that he doesnt understand this.

maybe you should consider addressing the issues you have with this; after all it must be very upsetting to know he is eating animals again. my partner, kathryn is vegan and it makes life much easier as we are on the same wavelength.

best of luck with it :)

I firmly believe that the true measure of a man's (or woman's) heart can be seen in his treatment of animals.

tell him to stop being such a shithead. Someone known to be 'vegetarian' going around eating meat when convenient is not a good rolemodel for vegetarianism / veganism.

My girlfriend Larissa is also vegan, and it is so nice that we can enjoy the same foods together and have special vegan feasts once in a while. We have been together about 7 years, and we went vegan together about 5 or 6 years ago.

It was a mutual decision. We had both been vegetarian since around 16 years old, and were finally a point where we were ready to go the extra step and go vegan. I went vegan for political and ethical reasons, and the longer I have been vegan the more compassionate I am towards every living thing. I would never even kill a bug now. Same goes for my girlfriend. She is a veterinary assistant and does so much for animals, she really goes the extra mile and is the most selfless person I know.

Sorry to hear that madcat...I don't understand how a vegan or a vegetarian can actually eat meat or fish again. It doesn't make sense. Try to persuade him, maybe it's just a temporary slip-up.
Good luck!

Very true.

I'm sorry that's happening madcat. My "boyfriend" is not vegan or vegitarian, so it's kind of hard to eat when at his house. But I was able to get some food for when I'm there. I'm going to make him watch meet your meat. He's such an animal lover so I can see him going vegitarian, especially after watching that.

I guess you will know just how much of animal lover he is after he watches meet you meat. I hope he does not disappoint you. A lot of people think they are animal lovers -- but when their "love" of animals is tested like that, they fail miserably and continue eating the alleged objects of their affection. :?

If he is a true animal lover, he wouldnt eat animals. I hope he comes through!! :D
