It’s been a long time since I wrote anything about veganism on here, and I want to address a question that I often get asked by my friends. Do I want my future partner to be vegan?

It’s a simple question, with a simple answer: yes. And to me it makes perfect sense why. But my answer always confuses the other person and leaves them quite puzzled.
When I reply that I wouldn’t want to be with anyone long-term who isn’t vegan, they think I’m this horrible girlfriend who will dictate my partner’s life. I would never want to forcefully make my partner vegan, there’s nothing nice or beautiful about it! In the long-run it wouldn’t work anyways. And it’s just not me, I want my partner to be vegan by choice. I am more than happy to play an important role in their transition, but of course they need to want to make the change.
