|So this is guy is a Vegan. He asks this lady out that he's known for a while and she's not a Vegan. He warned her that if she orders meat as part of her meal, he will not pay for her lunch. They go out to lunch and she orders a burger. Apparently, that caused a verbal fight between them. What is your opinion on this situation? Should he impose his ways on her?|

|No he shouldn't|

|I'm a vegan and wouldn't dream of doing something like this. |
He was wrong, especially if he knew before the date the that she wasn't.

|He warned her before the meal? and she still went out with him? Im still wondering why she went to lunch with him?|

|She should have paid for her own mean regardless.|

|I've told my huzbin.. "no veal"... a couple of times..;-)|

No, he should not impose his Vegan lifestyle on anyone.
What was the issue of the arguement?
Posted: 3/29/2012 6:33:30 AM
|I would have ordered whatever I wanted to eat and paid for it myself.|
The Vegan should have simply enjoyed his meal and learn to STFU.

|This is ridiculous and so is the vegan brain.|
Posted: 3/29/2012 6:42:53 AM
|I would gladly pay for my meal. Only argument would come if he told me what I could and could not eat.....that would then be our last date.|

|Well, if he warned her that he wont pay for any meat, then she should have bought her own. Its not like he said she couldnt order it/eat it in his company, he just didnt want his cash going towards something he doesnt believe in...thats fine by me.|
I am not a vegan, but I see his point in this.

She went out with him because he stated he would only not pay for her meal if she ordered meat. He didn't say he was going to make her feel bad or raise issue when she did.
If the argument was over who was paying...she was wrong. If it was over her ordering or eating the burger...he was.
The ground rules were clear. Somebody attempted to change them.

|He isn't imposing on her way of eating.|
He just said he won't pay for her to eat meat on a date with HIM.
Did he bring up the subject of meat?
He could have done/said it differently if he wanted to date her
They both sound extremely immature to fight about it.
Seems he could have said "I would love for you to try this vegan restaurant/meal and take you out.""Would you care to try it?"
She could have missed one meal with no meat.

|If someone felt the need to tell me that before a meal I certainly wouldn't go out with them. I respect your beliefs until you try to push them off on me or chastise me with them.|

|Sounds like a control freak to me!|

|i think he is a loser... i mean , really - what a hypocrtical ugly mess...|

guy sounds like a control freak.. what does he care what she orders?
His attitude speaks volumes, he is a total control freak... she should not see him anymore. If she does, her fault and she seems to deserve some lesson time with him.

|Tell him you won't f**k him until he eats a steak and see how he likes that. |
Posted: 3/29/2012 7:38:20 AM
|I think both of them are idiots; him for being a vegan an imposing stupid conditions on someone he should claim no type of ownership on her, and her arguing with him because she doesn't understand the fact that he's a moron AND for her wanting a free meal instead of just solving the situation by pulling out her own wallet.|
So they deserve each other. They should probably marry. Hell, they probably will....

|I avoid Vegan's and Vegetarians for this reason. There is more to it than their diet. And I am not going to sit and hear someone **** about PETA, eating meat, and all that crap. They all say they will not ****, but they do. |
I respect what other people are doing for a lifestyle, but when they start up on me...forget it. And most people who are Vegan and Vegetarian do this. I hear it, I see it. Reminds me of tree hugging bible thumpers. All of a sudden everyone else is BAD because they eat meat. Makes me want to eat a rare 20oz ribeye in front of them. And I will. :)
I had one come up to me in my gym a week ago. She decided to go * vegan * and all the preaching started. I went off. Mainly because she all of a sudden is vegan and people who eat meat are unhealthy etc? I think they lack something in the brain. All the behavior changes I see in this type of eating. Maybe a few do not whack out...but geez.
Maybe this woman in this case simply should not have agreed to meet the guy. LOL they both may have issues..

Dont worry. Because they dont eat meat, they'll die a lot younger than us anyways.

That right there is a contract. "I will pay for your lunch, BUT ONLY UNDER THIS CONDITION" (you can't eat meat.... you must eat meat.... you get the tip.... your turn next time.... a BJ for dessert.... what EVER).
She either accepted the terms of the agreement, or she didn't. SIMPLE. It was entirely her perogative to decide, just like it was entirely his perogative to define the conditions under which she'd get lunch on his dime. Or are you going to suggest that he is automatically obligated to just pay for her lunch? Based on WHAT?!?
They go out to lunch and she orders a burger.
I will say she must not have cared that he wouldn't be buying her lunch if she ate a burger, otherwise she wouldn't have ordered a hunk of meat. If he is an idiot, then nobody held a gun to her head and said she had to agree to a vegetarian meal much less have lunch with him.
Apparently, that caused a verbal fight between them.
I can't imagine what the argument was about, but already I'm on the vegan's side more than hers and there's nothing I like better in this world than a big ol' plate of steaming, semi-raw meat. She sounds bratty, bitchy, presumptuous, and self-entitled, and also SHE DOESN'T LISTEN..... like the last person on earth I'd ever care to have lunch with again.
Oh but he is a vegan, damn him. I'm surprised he didn't just force her into the nearest tofu bar and shove alfalfa sprouts down her gaping maw, right before he paid for her lunch. Gotta look out for those vegans. Scary.

|This would have really pissed me off.|
I have a close friend who is a vegan, and myself, as well as others, are allowed to eat what we please around him.
I'll be damned if I let a vegan, or vegetarian tell me what I can or cannot eat. I'll smash a f*ckin burger right in their faces.
Vegan: Rush, you're meeean!
Me: Shut up, whiner!

|To select a certain diet for one's self is a personal choice. Key word being "personal"|
Same principal as religion, political leaning, or so many other choices one makes.
They're yours - keep 'em to yourself , and don't be pushing your stuff onto others !
He was not cool.

|This guy should have taken her to a vegan restaurant if he had concerns about her eating meat. Problem solved.|
I would be willing to go to a vegan restaurant for a date. On one condition...she enjoys my "meat"...
