Prey4reign: Uptight vegan? Isn't that a tautology?
Rik01: I've heard so many things about 'Love', "True Love', 'Soul Mates' and 'Matches Made In Heaven' that I want to barf.Most of the time I see a pretty woman paired up with a guy who looks like a scumbag and acts like a jackass. You know, the type who chews his toenails off, wears jeans until they can stand on their own, has a love affair with his tools and has to be reminded to take that darn, grubby baseball cap with the bent brim off before he climbs into bed.I watched a parade of young women come through the ER when I worked at a hospital, following their men who got drunk and the shiat beat out of them and who loudly vowed, even as we stitched them up, to go back and get the sumbiatch! These loving, loyal ladies stood right by their men, worried over their pain, agreed with them in their drunken ravings and, now and then, arrived with them sporting a new shiner of their own.I've seen intelligent, nice young men paired up with nasty dumbshiate chicks, watched couples scream at each other in the beaches, the parks, in stores and parking lots.I've heard that the differences between lovers can be the spice of life, the things which makes their relationship interesting. He's conservative, she likes to dress semi-goth and he loves it. Opposites often attract.He loves liver and onions and it makes her want to puke, but she'll make it for him and eat tuna salad next to him. She's an optimist and he's a pessimist and they actually level each other out.The secret, I've been told, is deeply caring for each other. Being there with hot soup when your lover gets the flue. Showing up with unexpected flowers or something delightful when they're down. Listening is of great importance. Empathy also.Couples who haven't lasted are those who avoid the other when sickness is involved. Who talk about themselves by the hour but get glassy eyed and bored when their partner opens up. Nothing rattles a lovers heart more than, when telling your cherished one, something deep and m ...
syrynxx: An omnivore dating a herbivore is like an atheist dating a fundamentalist Christian. It's not just that the herbivore or Christian has different beliefs, but they think the other person is just wrong/sinful.The only herbivore I agreed with told me her reason for avoiding animal meat - "It's gross." Can't argue with that reasoning.

Can't argue with that reasoning.Eh, I've dated two vegetarians, even lived with one of them for four years. It was no big deal in either case. Neither of them ever gave me any shiat for eating meat. People who are just picky because they're finicky and don't like to try new things bother me more than vegetarians who do it for health or environmental reasons.The sanctimonious "Meat is murder" crowd, however, is a WHOLE different story.

Plant Rights Activist: ketchup is the blood of innocent tomatoes.
rustypouch: As much as I loathe vegans, she's right about this.Ketchup is for children. The flavour is simple, sweet, and overpowers whatever you put it on.
Coco LaFemme: I don't think it's childish....however I do think it's incredibly boring. That said, to each their own. I draw the line at ketchup on eggs, though. I draw the line at ketchup on anything. Yuck.
Old Man Winter: Probably as easy as dating someone so vapid and immature they think this is a serious issue would be.
tripleseven: Vegetarian since for 23 years. Fiancee eats meat. We've been together 12 years. It doesn't bother me in the slightest.Because I am not a judgmental asshat like the author is.

I draw the line at ketchup on anything. Yuck.Syrup on eggs on the other hand.Ketchup of all things I can't eat. I can eat anything tomato based, except ketchup. Ketchup requires pepto-abysmal I mean bismol in response.With that said, even when I did eat it. I once swore off it for a year after working at McDonald's. After seeing a 300 pound man grab all the fries out of his super-size fry in one big handful and smear it through the lake of ketchup he had on a wrapper. Following which he proceeded to gnaw on it for 5 minutes. I couldn't stand the thought of tasting ketchup. Then a few years after I started eating again, I couldn't.
