Saint Charles, missouri vegetarians, vegans and raw foodist events and singles dating
is a 37 year old, spiritual male.
Living in Saint Charles, missouri
I am 29 years old and have been vegan for 2 1/2 years. Admittedly, I would not normally be one to consider online dating. In fact, if I hadn't found it so difficult to meet other vegans in everyday life, I would likely not have considered this. Having said that, I am vegan for environmental, health, and animal cruelty reasons. After becoming aware of how the animal agriculture industry operates and the cruelty inflicted on animals, I could never go back to eating meat, poultry, and fish (even though I am asked this question repeatedly by non-vegans :) I realized that I could never consider a long-term relationship with a non-vegan so here I am.
I am a firm believer that the universe provides us with what we need, when we need it. As a Buddhist, I seek to avoid striving and reaching for things with the understanding that everything is as it should be. In some ways, this is at odds with online dating and I am leery for that particular reason. I do not beleive in forcing a relationship. I believe that there is a purpose behind all happenings and that life is constantly teaching us lessons.
So, I would like to use this site, primarily, to connect with other vegans. It has been nice to have engaging conversations with others who share the vegan lifestyle and understand the reasons behind it. If something more arises, I am entirely open to exploring whatever the possibility may hold. I prefer to simply live life and trust that I will cross paths with the right person, at the right time. I am, by no means, unwilling to pursue a relationship that may arise from this site but I will not chase a relationship for the sake of being in one.
Beyond that, I live an active lifestyle. I have pursued a variety of mainstream and obscure hobbies over the course of my life and look forward to many more years of the same. I snowboard, wakeboard, salsa dance, play competitive table tennis, am a PADI certified open water scuba diver, paddleboard, hike, play hockey, practice yoga, meditate, and powerlift. I am an avid reader. I believe learning is experiential and takes place solely outside of one's comfort zone which is where I strive to be.
