Veggie dating uk
So it ended up being a pretty fun 20 x three minute dates for the blokes, and, well, kind of a drag for the ladies. Let us know in the poll below what you think about speed dating.
My conclusion is, I wouldn’t write this type of thing off.
’, ‘what do you do/like to do in your spare time’, or some sort of confession about how much of an effort it was to cram in as much info as possible in three minutes.
One awkward, sheepish bloke made a really shit joke about me ‘liking big ones’ because of my ‘large glass’ of red wine (it was 175ml – that’s a small! Curiously, around 40 per cent were of Indian parentage and born in Kenya.
Speed Dater now run around 70 events every month in 27 cities.
They do other weird and wonderful niche events such as tall men, bearded men (hello), older women for younger men (LOL), cooking classes, wine tasting, comedy, quiz nights and more.
Of Tuesday’s bunch of blokes I think less than half were actually vegan.
Conversation varied from person to person, but generally the openers were ‘veggie or vegan?

‘We run so many successful food-related events such as our vegetarian and vegan cooking classes at L’atelier des Chefs, the shared experience and interaction really is a successful recipe for romance to blossom.’ After the event my mate and I stayed for some Tibits food*.
Michel and his pal sat next to us and we had a chat across the tables about travelling and theatre. We left after about 15 minutes, after we finished our food, and they stayed on without taking our numbers.
And attending means committing to two hours of smiling and chit-chat to 20 people with whom you may struggle to build rapport.
If you’re an ethical vegan who wants to date ethical vegans, I’d say you’re better off mingling at Veg Fest, Vegan Meetups (check Facebook for the ones closest to you), some healthy-living expo, PETA demonstrations, restaurants like Black Cat in Hackney, and your local vegan supermarket.Michel is the only one I ‘ticked’ online but he hasn’t entered his yet so we’ll see.*If you don’t go there to date, just go there to eat, please? A mix of veg cuisines – all-vegan on Tuesdays – and you pay by weight. Datingvegetarian has a decent Google pagerank and bad results in terms of Yandex topical citation index.
