New to Portland and looking to meet new people.  I recently tried dating sites; however, I am not interested in dating someone that hunts or fishes--which apparently is very popular in this area.  I am simply searching for someone to explore all that the area has to offer.  Expensive dates are not a requirement.  I enjoy movies, all the local vegan restaurants food, and staying home talking.  Good conversation and laughter goes a long way.

a distillery worker & nursing student, I am a nurturer with fancy taste. I love kids and animals and anyone that can appreciate my goofy and intellectual sense of humor. I also like zombie movies, old jazz, and to talk about gross things while we're eating. currently teaching myself the accordion, because my guitar, concertina, flute, piccolo, harmonica and musical saw were getting lonely. literary tattoos are my favorite kind.

life is too amazing and full of opportunities that I don't understand it when people get bored. I always want to surround myself with interesting people who are passionate like I am about what they do and are engaged with their lives.

I don’t know what “normal” is and enjoy spending time with people who have depth to them and unusual or highly developed skills and capabilities. happiness is a big deal for me and I can tell if my life is “normal" or not based on how happy I feel.

these days I'm having a lot of fun and am not afraid of making mistakes and learning from them. I love learning new things and being told when I'm wrong.

physical fitness and overall health and well-being are important to me. I meditate regularly and in the past few years, I've been studying flow state and the mind-body connection. I’m always looking for acro, yoga and gymnastics buddies to train and play and stretch with.

food makes me extraordinarily happy and I love food trucks, good wine and an occasional sugar-free mojito. I'm vegan for all the reasons, my diet is completely plant-based, and I usually I stay away from processed foods and anything invented in the last hundred years.

I have an incredible partnership with the love of my life. we’re both vegan and polyamorous and I'm always looking to meet up as friends with more people like us.

to be clear, I'm here to meet new friends.  Thank you!

I've lived in Raleigh for about 3 years now and came to the Triangle the way of Eastern, NC but I was originally born in Germany as a child where I lived for 8 years. I quite honestly hated living in the South for a very long time but i think that was more associated with personal and professional experiences from my childhood and twenties. I have really become reborn in some ways while living in the Triangle.

That started with setting out to take control of my health and I have lost over 120 pounds thus far. A friend introduced me to the Vegan lifestyle so I decided to try it originally for dietary reasons. I have come to find I can meet my protien requirements just fine and its very affordable to boot. I'm now starting to see more of the ethical reasons and think what we are doing with the mass farming, etc. is just not needed in modern times.

My other lifestyle factors outside of being a Vegan is that I'm a minimalist and also operate a meetup group for those in the Triangle that are seeking guidance and help on living a more minimal lifestyle. Minimum for me at least doens't mean getting rid of stuff as much as it means focusing on what matters in life. Beyond that I lift weights 3 times per week and run around Lake Lynn 3 times per week.

Professionally I'm a digital project manager, which I have been doing for about 18 years now. The job has been stressful at times but I see the huge benefits that my efforts bring to my clients and that is a reward within itself. Other notable items are I love to travel and frequent coffee shops!

Living in Portland, oregon
Vegan diet.

I love living in Portland. Getting out in nature is a priority for me, yet I don't do it often enough and I am looking to create more opportunity. I bicycle pretty much everywhere, year round. I'm a positive, optimistic person. My kids are grown, but I really enjoy other people's children. It's important to me to be compassionate, vulnerable, joyful, and authentic. Yoga is key to my body and heart feeling good, and a main filter through which I interpret the world. I adore books, hiking, ecstatic dancing, and home-cooked food. I like to sing along with punk rock when nobody's listening. I am curious about the world and the people I see in it.

Polyamorous: I am in a stable, long-term marriage which we carefully and lovingly opened about 3 years ago after 13 years of monogamy. And it's going rather well -- my wife has a deep relationship with her awesome boyfriend and is wonderfully supportive of me dating. She's great. My new favorite word: compersion!

In discussing my hesitation about online dating with a friend, he looked at me and said, "Own your awesomeness!" Yeah!

Living in PORTLAND, oregon

 I'm an INFP with a propensity to occasional extroversion.  I love solitude and can keep myself busy and entertained but when I get together with friends I know how to have a good time!  When I do go out I love to dance, sing karaoke, hike, explore and watch good entertainers.  When I'm alone I like to watch documentaries, read, play online poker and cook.  I love to hike, camp and enjoy the outdoors when I can.


Easterner, a  Veggie/vegan in Portland Easterner
is a 56 year old, Atheist female.
Living in Portland, oregon
Veggie/vegan diet.

I'm in East Coast native from my childhood relocated to the Pacific Northwest. So I consider myself rooted in ultra liberal cosmopolitan East Coast culture but appreciative of the beautiful wilderness in the West. I'm an aspiring vegan who's almost there but not quite. I'm an animal rights activist an environmentalist and take whatever limited actions I can take towards those goals. I'm a progressive in my politics although once in a while a slightly more conservative viewpoint sneaks in. I have never had any children and not child-oriented but totally oriented toward all canines. I'm looking for someone who is real and not about phony made up walks on the beach and all kinds of exotic travel. That's not real life. Real life is the day to day things that happen. I consider myself a real list on the pessimistic side. And more of the Rock of Gibraltar type.


Kalena, a  Vegan in Portland Kalena
is a 53 year old, other / not disclosed female.
Living in Portland, oregon
Vegan diet.

I'm looking to go out with likeminded individuals. I've been a vegan for nearly two years and most of my friends and family are not vegan, so I'd like to find someone to share in my lifestyle. I'm open to eventually finding a life partner but for right now I'm not ready.


Being from Portland, I love all of the tasty plant-based restaurants available--Portobello and The Bye and Bye are among my favorites. Also, I'd like to try more restaurants--Blossiming Lotus is on my list. In my free time, I'm always trying new recipes. I enjoy a variety of movies and picking a favorite would be impossible. Another favorite pastime of mine is to see local theater productions. Also, I love to travel. I went to Europe a while ago and I plan to go back. I'm a positive person who loves to laugh and enjoy life. I'm very politically and socially aware, especially with animal and human rights. I love all animals and I have a spunky, spoiled fluffball dog. By the end of this summer, my youngest will be the last off to college. I'm a very honest person and I like to be surrounded with positivity and honesty. 


Feel free to message me if you're interested in getting to know me more.

Richard, a  Vegan in Portland Richard

Living in Portland, oregon
Vegan diet.

I'm a dedicated vegan of 8 years, and love the lifestyle. Though strict on that, I'm actually a very laid-back guy - I love people in general, am very optimistic, and I can find humor in some strange places.

I'm a very driven person, and there are many problems in our modern world that need serious attention. So I'm trying to change my direction in life to work full-time towards some of these things, which is promising to become a weird, crazy adventure.

I'm passionate about animal rights, health & fitness, astronomy, reading, exploring new music, browsing the net for independent media, hiking/camping, yoga/tai chi, all kinds of science, and most kinds of philosophy. Anything outdoors is good. Most of the time I'm nerding out on the internet, though

M, a  Almost veg in Portland M
is a 35 year old, spiritual female.
Living in Portland, oregon
Almost veg diet.

Hmmmm....well I am full of energy and curiosity. I have a strong passion for gardening, cooking, community, finding my place in this world, and my daughter whom my world revolves around. I am an eclectic individual who loves nature in most of its striking and humbling forms, hiding indoors with a book, listening to a good musical artist, or unleashing my creativity which centers and grounds my exuberant spirit. I have recently re-discovered gardening and with a determination not to cut green life short have launched into turning my front yard into my own "project utopia". I love to cook whether for myself or for my small community (usually between 25-50 amazing vegetarian people) and generally just throw caution to the wind by following intuition versus recipe.

I want to add that I am a part-time pescatarian and only eat fish on occasion. I was raised vegetarian but rebelled. I decided 2 years ago that it was just not ok to eat my fellow creatures and stopped. So when you see that I am almost vegetarian this is why. 

Community both small and large matter to me a great deal. I want nothing more than to be a part of bringing people together and unifying the (at times) lost tradition of love as a foundation where true harmony and peace can emanate. I have been on a path all my own and have found through deep energy work and self-exploration that my voice is clear and vibrant, needing only a connection between my higher consciousness and my true self to be a channel for truth and grace. Living in alignment with the greater good is not just something I do for myself; it provides my daughter an opportunity to emulate the higher qualities of humanity. 

If I have to sum myself up it would be that I am: a unique, deeply loving, creative woman who wants nothing more than to make a difference in this world. I can be both a challenge to the status quo and a soothing balm for the woes life can bring. I am fiercely independent in nature and also incredibly loyal. I am traditional with a hint of spice. 

I am who I am and I Love that I am so aware.

I am a compassionate individual who sees that any being should be treated as equal. In addition, I have a passion for cooking, and I am someone who enjoys existentialist philosophers like Camus, or Georges Bataille. As far as my music tastes are concerned, I am extremely varied. I can go from listening to Deathspell Omega, to enjoying the works of Aphex Twin, or Nick Drake.

I'm an ethical vegan.  I care about animals and wish people would stop eating and abusing them.  I recognize it is a very complez issue that will take some time to shift.  love to sing.  I use to sing in karaoke bars all the time but don't really drink much anymore and am not the hugest fan af bars. I would love to join a band though, if you know of any let me know!

 

I like talking about society and philosophical issues as well as latest cute animal video.

My interests are diverse. Love to cook from scratch and share with family and friends. My friends think of me as easy-going, entertaining, loyal, giving, intellectual, and witty. Raised five children, all are married and through college with good professional jobs. I work for 40 years and I am a retired RN with my own pension. I enjoy hiking, Long walks, lifting weights (especially at a gym), and going to the yoga studio for various practices; hot, vinyasa, yin, and restorative. I produce medical marijuana for clients and have a large vegetable garden, Fruit trees and berries that I like to preserve. I'm a happy grandmother of 10 or 11, if God willing. They don't live close but I see them periodically and love their company. Early to bed and early to rise with busy in between but there's still someone missing. I Love love.

When anyone first meets me, they assume I am shy, quiet, and innocent, which I suppose I am until you get to know me. Then once you know me you will learn I am quite the opposite. My two passions in life are animals and music. Both definitely bring out the best in me. 

I need to be with someone who is compassionate, empathetic and affectionate. Animals have always been a huge part of my life. I am an advocate for animals and spend some of my free time volunteering to find homes for some pretty amazing pets. I hope to meet someone who will support me in these efforts. Even better if you want to join me. :-)

I have a pretty sarcastic sense of humor and usually know when to lighten a difficult situation. 

I live my life by the Law of Karma and have no regrets. Everything in my life has been a lesson learned and has lead me to where I am today.

It's important to have a passion in life.  Something that makes you get up in the morning.  Something that pushes you to want to do better, to be better.  What is your passion?

I'm an outdoorsy, generally mellow person, shy (at first) and thoughtful. In sixth grade a teacher called me pensive and as much as I disliked being labeled at the time, she hit the nail on the head. I love to listen and talk with people. Life's deep questions and the ridiculously mundane are equally fascinating. If I drop an "I wonder...." we could be talking for hours. I like to laugh and make people laugh. With or without alcohol I have a pretty wide mischievous streak.

I'm trying to be the best person I can be. I work hard to have my overall impact on the world be positive. I'm lucky to have an insanely high quality of friends and I put a lot of effort into being worthy of their presence in my life.

If I'm not spending time with the people close to me, I'm probably on a bike, listening to music/NPR, traveling, or building something with my hands, 

My best friend is the most handsome guy I know. When I take him for walks and the sun is glistening off his white fur I often hear the theme to Saturday Night Fever in my head.

*****NOT A PAID MEMBER SO IF YOU WINK ME I CANNOT REPLY; SEND ME A NOTE INSTEAD.

IF VEGGIEDATE HAD MORE MEMBERS IN MY AREA I WOULD ACTUALLY PAY!*******

 

A date with someone who loves his pets but eats animals just isn't going to work for me, so here I am... 100% Vegi for 25 + years;

 

It seems that people do not often meet in person anymore! Online dating isn't my first choice but I am open to being pleasantly surprised... The very best case scenario would be true lasting love.

I would  prefer getting to know one person with potential "really" well vs. multiple people "sort of" well, but a veggie meal with a new like minded friend is always good...

 

I am NON denominational but I have experienced miraculous synchronicty for sure....

I grew up in the Bay Area (Silicon Valley) around a huge Indian community so I am always reading some sort of Eastern philosohy or non fiction; Yogananda, Krishnamurti, BKS Iyengar etc. If you have not seen the documentary "Awake" about Paramahansa Yogananda, it is SOOO spectacular! 

"Meditate don't medicate!" Kriya yoga, holistic medicine etc, Good stuff!

People have actually told me "You are too pretty to be single" which I guess is a compliment? But the truth is my internal beauty is too great to accept anything less than amazing and honorable. I am looking for am "US against the world" best friend sort of dedication, not just someone to change my relationship status!

Writing a cool profile about "who we are" is fun but how is it when the newness of a relationship wears off? That is what interests me truly; In a perfect world, I would like a relationship where after several years we still hold hands while walking our dog(s) etc..

It's one thing to "get a lady" but knowing how to keep one around is far more honorable, at least in my opinion. "Best friend" sort of love; does it still exist? I think so... I hope so. 

I am ABSOLUTELY searching for a man with a "heart of gold" not just a "pile of gold" tho money certainly can make life more comfortable and fun, so if you have both, great.... I live somewhat simply. I try to keep the amount of "stuff" in my home in check. I do enjoy nice things in my home/shopping etc but it is certainly not my only interest or activity.

I am open to your spirituality but if you are super fanatical (or an Athiest) I would probably disagree. I believe in the spirit of the universe, something more than what we know on this earth for sure. I have seen "miraculous synchronicity" in action many times. 

Fun, silly, serious. Kind to strangers of all shapes and sizes yet not fake and not a pushover. I probably will not have a million dollars in this lifetime but so far have chosen my passion over working in a cubicle. If I won the lottery I would likely give a lot of the money to animal rescue and spend a lot exploring new places... 

I LOVE: Integrity / my dog / music / concerts / documentaries / natural medicine / exploring a new place on foot / soy chai / rainy Portland days in a bookstore / Thai food, Indian food and a good vegi burger / juicing greens;

I am a healthy clean eater mostly but I also enjoy a nice slab of pizza and chocolate cake now and then... Not at the same time of course! 

I DO NOT LOVE: Smokers / dishonesty 

Music: Everything from U2, Neil Young, Coldplay, The Clash, Snow Patrol, George Harrison and all of the Beatles, Kings of Leon, Garbage, Prince to Johnny Cash! Paul McCartney is my favorite animal rights activist and he is still rocking in his 70's! 

(Not big into Jazz)

 

*I honor ALL animals and animal rights are very important to my life.... Rats, pigs, bats, etc.  All beautiful souls who want to live as much as we do*

Yoga has been an important part of my life for a long time. I taught it for years in Seattle. The yoga then turned to mantras, meditations and pujas. I don't think I ever would have chanted my first mantra without doing my first asana. I have a love of the outdoors which seems to always bring me back to the Pacific Northwest. I like the idea of the approaching God as female and learn as much about her different forms and methods of worship as I can. That’s my preference, but I feel all paths are valid. There’s always more than one way to get to the same place. I’ve been to India a few times. Originally to study yoga with BKS Iyengar and also to celebrate some of the important holidays like Navaratri, Sivaratri and Holli.
My most recent trip included temple tours in Tamil Nadu to the major Goddess temples (Kanchi Kamakshi, Madhurai Meenakshi, Neemili Bala) and the five elemental (Pancha MahaBhuta) Siva Lingam temples.
I practice Tantra, not in a new agey California way, but in an authentic Godess worship way. I do empowerment rituals for people. It is very satisfying for me as well, to help.

I prefer living an eco lifestyle out in nature, even though I'm living in the city now.  I meditate, do yoga and try to power walk everyday. I love to dance... (at least 1 or 2 times a week for fun and exercise). I'm cheerful, opti-mystic, affectionate and demonstrative with the man I love and I do have a sense of humor!:)

Nature amazes me, so I tend to hike a lot these days. When I'm not hiking, I go for long walks with my dog in the city. Sometimes we play ball in the park. I also live with two older cats who are a bit more sedentary. I'm a very compassionate person, and I love helping others, especially those who need the most help. 

I've just received my architecture license, though I may abandon that field for something else. If you want more info on that, send me a "note"!

Interests: wandering, animals, nature, urbanism, chance encounters, documentaries, hiking, exploring, riding my bike, detail, juxtaposition, sarcasm, satire, smoothies, walking through a winter forest in the snow, warm rain, trees, sunlight, film, thinking, architecture, narrow streets, narrow buildings, chocolate, and drawing.

I have a passion for life, and all of the facets that symbiotically work together to make it worth engaging. I love to travel, whether that is to a foreign land where I do not know the dialect, a spontaneous trip to Denali, or just a new restaurant or farmers market that opened up down the street. When I am not teaching or playing architect, then I love to get outside with my dog for hikes, muck around in the dirt, sculpt beautiful artifacts, spin fire poi, read, and have random conversations with intelligent friends. I pick fruit most of the Summer and make a great pie crust from scratch; I skate through food markets on the back of carts like a kid; I actually enjoy doing taxes; I have a book addiction and always want to learn; I love to go dancing, and will volunteer to be the designated driver; If we are stuck on a rock face, I do not panic; My life is composed of myriad adventures and facets, and I want to hear and experience those which you love as well; I truly believe that one can have their cake and eat it too!

I work as a academic tutor and freelance editor. Much as I enjoy that, I am passionate about music and developing myself as a singer/artist/musicmaker. Sometimes my passion for food and cooking overshadows that...so I am making exercise a more regular activity. Smile I'm really into the outdoors as in enjoying nature, especially after having lived in a huge city for over two years; I'm looking forward to the abundant green spaces and nature oases Portland has to offer.

Transformative1, a  Veggie/vegan in Portland Transformative1
is a 64 year old, spiritual male.
Living in Portland, oregon
Veggie/vegan diet.

I am a warm, loving, compassionate man. I am witty, intelligent, and love to make others smile :)

While I consider myself to be a self-confident man, I understand about the interplay between confidence and vulnerability. I tend to look for the positives in life and believe that things happen for reasons, and ascribe to learn from my experiences. I am a good listener, and feel that my professional medical training allows me to understand others.  

I enjoy spontaneity and will sometimes, surprise my partner with the unexpected, believing that when things are always predictable then can sometimes get monotonous. I think life can be exciting if we see it as more of a journey than just a destination. 

I've been told that what is most appealing about me is that I am honest, trustworthy, dependable and sincere. Perhaps that is why I enjoyed raising my two daughters so much because it gave me an opportunity to show my warm, loving, playful and affectionate side while providing the emotional support that is necessary to raise a family.  Most of all, I am comfortable in my own skin, know who I am, and not afraid to be me. I think others find that appealing over men who will say or do anything because they think it is what others want them to say or do.

If these aspects are important to you, I am: Cancer sun, Leo moon, and Pisces rising; Enneagram #2 and ENFP

Molly, a  Vegan in Portland Molly
is a 42 year old, Agnostic / not religious female.
Living in Portland, oregon
Vegan diet.

I love animals, nature, learning and books.  I am quiet until I feel comfortable with someone and then I enjoy good conversation about all manner of things both silly and serious.  I am out of step with popular culture and my political views are very progressive.  My hobbies are quiet: hiking, sailing, handcrafts, reading baking and cooking.  I'm not one for clubs or large noisy crowds.  I feel my life is simple without being Spartan and I am distressed by the consumerism of much of modern society.  I'd rather share a book with someone than watch a movie and often find it more fun to cook together than go out.

Veganism is very important to me because of the compassion it encompasses.  I am vegan first for the animals, secondly for the environment and thirdly for my own health.  I live with a companion kitty who is my best friend. 

My sense of humor tends towards the silly and satirical with some added sarcastic self-deprecation.  This isn't a lot, but this profile, like myself, is a work in progress!

Happily living in Portland.  Going to school full-time to learn more about the woods and sustainability.  I also have a part-time job subtitling video for PCC classes. I would love to have my own piece of land someday, and homestead.  I'm a single mom with two awesome kids, an 9 yr old boy and a 7 yr old girl.  I love to go hiking, camping, watching movies and snuggling.  I also love to go out dancing.  I am liberal and open-minded, supportive of gay rights.  

I am comfortable with who I am and happy, for the most part, with my life.  I'm a curvy girl, and proud of it.  My curves rock.  I no longer have a car, by choice, and I walk an average of 30 mi/week. 

My musical tastes are pretty eclectic.  I love a lot of stuff from the 50's-90's, but enjoy being introduced to contemporary music, too.  I love film noir and Hitchcock.  I also love reading and learning.

I'm a crafty girl.  I love to sew and make things.  I also enjoy gardening.  

I enjoy cooking fresh, healthy food.  I occasionally eat chicken and fish, but I am primarily vegetarian.  I enjoy drinking wine, beer, and cocktails.

I am a spiritual person, but I know that I am responsible for my own actions.  I have been a member of a UU fellowship for about 10 years.  I am totally open to dating people with beliefs differing from mine.


Marilyn, a  Vegetarian in Portland Marilyn
is a 49 year old, Atheist female.
Living in Portland, oregon
Vegetarian diet.

I'm an outgoing, high-energy, former Chicagoan who has been vegetarian for 20 years. I prefer to be out and about versus staying in for the day. I like hiking, frisbee in the park, riding my bike, live music, playing guitar, and spending quiet time taking long walks, reading, and writing. I really want to run more but have yet to achieve the runner's high people say exists. Art and music are a big part of my life.  I've been watching the rides go in for Rose Festival. I've never been. Tilt a whirl, anyone?

Living in Portland, oregon
Vegetarian diet.

I was taught by a very special person that having empathy, compassion, and being mindful of all creatures creates true happiness. Animals have every right to be here on earth and are no less important than we are. They enrich our lives and depend on us and it's our job to respect and care for them. I'am forever grateful for the lessons I have learned. Vegetarianism is a beautiful choice and dating a woman who is vegetarian or vegan is important to me.

 

INTEREST: Dogs, camping, cycling, hiking, city walks, travel, plants/garden, art, theater, crafts, concerts, music, documentary films, greenjuice, chai, Indian and Thai food, quite evenings ( to name a few)

Hi, I'm Sarah. I moved to Portland almost two years ago to attend Lewis and Clark Law School. I moved here from Texas, although I grew up on Air Force Bases around the world. I went to Texas A&M University and majored in bio-environmental sciences with a minor in French.

I'm currently a second year law student. I have a passion for animal rights, which is one of the reasons I'm studying animal law and environmental law. I've been vegetarian since I was 13 and since I moved to Portland I've made the change to vegan. 

My hobbies are reading, drawing, painting, writing, hiking, dancing, and exploring Portland.

Sean, a  Almost veg in Portland Sean
is a 37 year old, Agnostic / not religious bi-male.
Living in Portland, oregon
Almost veg diet.

I am a happy, healthy, creatively inspired fellow. Thoughtful, kind and intelligent. I am a seeker, an explorative type. Life-learning is a constant. My path is never usually straight and has many curious and exciting detours to which I enjoy growing from.

I try not to have expectations, and enjoy learning and experiencing new things. I am assertive, honest, and deep but also very laid back and casual. I have plenty of wry wit and humor to go around...sometimes I find myself giggling at something funny someone said last week.

Passion calls...

I am a musician, artist, energetic nature lover. I hike, swim, bike throughout the week and just love being outside. To me, that is the "good life".

I appreciate others fully. I take my friendships seriously and am old-school about the value of them. The feeling of connection runs through life, from eating well, exercise, people-connections and hard work. This is the life magic we all learn from ; ).

I am deeply empathic and a sensitive-intuitive. I encourage your conversation and hope you are well.

Veggie/vegan diet.

Hello. Well, what to say huh? And here I fancy myself a writer and yet the blank page is always mildly intimidating.

Are you familiar with Chomsky, and Howard Zinn, well my political beliefs line up with theirs.

I like to read, mostly older more classic stuff, rarely living writers, which I kind of regret because writers, like all artist, need support, and it doesn't help much to support them after they're gone.

Music wise; it would be much easier to say what i don't like: gangsta' rap, contemporary country, hair band heavy metal stuff.

I'm not a "normal" guy (if there is such a thing as normal). I don't know anything about cars (except how to drive them and change a flat tire, or add oil (basically, the basic stuff).  I don't like sports (unless you consider chess a sport - which it is in some ways).  I write poetry, and have been wanting to work on putting a novel together, but that is quite difficult, and there are so many things which pull at your time, and time is what you need for that, but am I just making excuses? Probably, because we find a way to make the time for the stuff we really want to do, don't we?

much, much more, but after all, this is really only an introduction, so, how do you do?

Brooke, a  Vegan in Portland Brooke

Living in Portland, oregon
Vegan diet.

I've decided to join Veggie Date to see what happens and to be open to the possibility of new vegan friends or a partner.

I've been an ethical vegan for almost 6 years and vegetarian my whole life. It would be really great to have some meat free dinner dates or spend some time camping with some vegan snacks under the stars. I haven't met many vegans my age and would like to connect with some like-minded others. 

I love traveling and have an adventurous spirit. I would love a travel partner for the future. I have a long list of all of the places I would like to go and things I would like to do and I plan on conquering all of them! 

My typical day to day includes going to class at Portland State, working at one of my two jobs, going for a run or hike, and cooking some vegan grub. I'm currently in Australia working as an Au Pair, but love my Pacific Northwest home back in the states. When I finish my university studies, I plan on backpacking the Pacific Crest Trail with a friend and then traveling across the globe. I'm currently planning on graduating with a Bachelor of Science for Pre-veterinary graduate studies. I am slowly finding my way in this world and I fall deeper for life around me everyday.

I wear sandals to protect from thorns and do not try to cover the earth with leather. This great classroom requires tests to be taken individually but we may have fellow classmates with whom we can study, learn and grow with. I am in pursuit of these co-journeyers. May we walk the path together...


Heidi, a  Veggie/vegan in Portland Heidi
is a 33 year old, Humanist female.
Living in Portland, oregon
Veggie/vegan diet.

I want to share the rhythm of life together.. I'm looking for someone to talk about life's ups and downs. I am emotionally healthy, not codependent, a little introverted but moving towards extroverted. I'm super self-aware. I'm intuitive in relationships and therefore a healer, in a sense, or so I've been told. Mostly, I'm a good listener.

Intuitive because I've been practicing eastern meditation and yoga (on and off) since my early 20s.

 

HSV-2

 so ideally you'd have it as well, or can accept that I do

 

I'm good at nurturing. I enjoy dating older and younger men. My last relationship was with someone a year younger than me.

I have a child who doesn't live with me, and I love kids. My field (usually) is in behavior therapy. I just returned to Portland and getting reestablished. I thought this would be a good way to make new friends. 

 

Date ideas-

Bike ride and Frisbee

Picnic in the park and cloud watching

A really rudimentary, beginner's game of tennis

Volunteering

 

I'm mostly vegan/raw, love to cook and take care of another. I like sharing responsibilities and planning for the unwritten future.
