I, myself, could never love someone who didnt understand me or my beleifs.
I agree with my roommate and friend of course, I just like saying roommate.
That is why it is so hard for me to find a "girlfriend." I haven't dated anyone in YEARS, mainly due to the fact that there just aren't very many vegans I bump into at work, around town, or just day to day.
It is so cool that there are vegan communities online like this and of course we do end up meeting in person and hanging out like many did last summer in the UK and many will do this summer in the Caribbean and some will do soon over at Daywalker's house and of course out here in Oregon too.
Finding that "right" person can be tough. I know there are lots of things you have to "compromise" and all that "give and take" and stuff like that but I certainly don't think you have to just "settle" for something or someone that isn't on the same page as you concerning something as important as a vegan lifestyle.
