5 years vegan (2011). I'm a genuinely nice and thoughtful person. I accept people and animals for who they are. No judgements. I have a very good sense of humor and love a little comedy sparring when it pops up. I know who I am and don't require someone else to be validate.

Recently certified Plant-Based Nutritionist. I play ice hockey and music. Love to see live music as often as possible. I support local music and my friend's bands most often.

Spencer, a  Vegan in Chicago Spencer
is a 45 year old, spiritual male.
Living in Chicago, Illinois
Vegan diet.

To be called a "Renaissance Man" used to be a compliment. However, to survive in today's society individuals must be "focused" on one thing in order to succeed well. Therefore, persons like myself find it hard to fit in since I have so many interests. One of my favorite things to do in life is learn and master new skills and subjects. I believe this is what breathes new life in us giving fresh perspectives concerning our existence. This also keeps us young:-) Things I have learned well are classical piano, electric guitar, carpentry, bricklaying, physical fitness. Lastly, I believe the most important subject we can learn about is PEACE. Right now I am working on a Master's in Computer Science.

Veggie/vegan diet.

 And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.
 
Better is a dinner of herbs where love is, than a stalled ox and hatred therewith.

How could you pass up this offer I'm about to make?     Left corporate job to live dream: wood carver on family farm: apple trees, berries, wild grapes, black walnut trees & lots of edible green plants.    Moo!   No kidding deer!

Generally easy-going.   Open to the possibility of a great relationship one day with the right lady.  

Became vegetarian after Charlotte Gerson Straus explained - "It's easier to eat raw veggies & stay well - than to have to go to her cinic & fight your way back to health."

Some of the authors whose books I have read: Arnold Ehret, Ann Wigmore, John Robbins, Napoleon Hill, Michael Gerber, Tony Robbins, Seth Godin, Jack Canfield, Brian Tracy. Have you read The Essene Gospel of Peace?  It teaches some startling things about Natural Healing.

Casual style - although I have told me that "I clean up well".    Former Democratic candidate.

Accomplishments: I used to bandsaw heart shaped boxes by hand. now draw them with a mouse & program my ShopBot to make them and other shapes.

see website below.

Wood carver shop an hour west of Chicago.
Anything you can imagine (and then some)  - I can make - using everything from Ancient to high tech equipment.
One of my goals is to train vets some of these skills - to keep them interested in life.

goals include: raw/live vegan healthful lifestyle, learning to wood carve with the computer. developing personal potential, cleaning up Nature, becoming even more energy and food independent;

Favorite things: dancing, nature walks, watching red cardinals, listening to coyotes howling in the night   or woodpeckers "knocking" on trees.

Have you tried Curly Dock, Lambs Quarter or an herb walk?

Saving the Rain Forests (and the Earth in general) from the International/Central Banksters 

Countries sell their 'daughter' (rain forest/ natural resources) to pay interest to the Banksters.

Cristin!, a  Vegan in Chicago Cristin!
is a 38 year old, spiritual female.
Living in Chicago, Illinois
Vegan diet.

I would like to think I’m layered like an onion, but less tear-inducing.

I became vegetarian at the age of 11 and went vegan about 7 years ago. I would approximate I’m 95% plant-based and 5% Ben & Jerry’s PB&Cookie Almond Milk ice cream. I also enjoy Salted Caramel Cashew Milk ice cream.

I live with two dogs and they are the world to me.

I love doing things like (but not limited to): ice skating, boating, traveling, reading, dancing, going to festivals, concerts, bike riding, swimming, and just hanging out at home.

I cook and bake a lot. I often create my own recipes, some are better than others.

I voted for Bernie, then I voted for Jill.

I do enjoy the Sci-Fi and Fantasy genres. Although I feel a little burnt out on superheroes at the moment. I could watch a nice documentary. I love learning.

I don’t know how to end this silly self-assessment, so I will just say thank you for reading.

Thank you for reading.


rawblissed, a  Vegan in Chicago rawblissed
is a 52 year old, female.
Living in Chicago, Illinois
Vegan diet.

I have worked for over 25 years as a massage therapist in private practice, massage instructor, and now I'm a corporate wellness program coordinator and health coach. I am passionate about all natural therapies and learning more of that is how I usually spend my free time. I'm awed by all the tools nature gives us to heal and stay healthy.

I have been vegetarian for most of my life and got into raw/live foods a few years ago, so now am about 75% raw.  Living a healthy life in body, mind, and spirit is important to me because it just makes me happy.  I consider myself spiritual, but not interested in any religion, especially with fanatic doctrines - just love and tolerance.

I love working out, reading non-fiction, learning something new, watching documentaries, diy/creative projects, and spending time outside!  

I hope that my next relationship is fun and easy.  One that is based on a solid friendship, freedom, and acceptance.  

 


Kind Soul, a  Veggie/vegan in  Chicago Kind Soul
is a 46 year old, Jain male.
Living in Chicago, Illinois
Veggie/vegan diet.

I thought my grad school essays were hard...here we go..I once wrote an award winning essay on Snoopy on how he's a Renaissance Man much like Leonardo Da Vinci. I know...you're thinking...what? Here's my logic...Snoopy was a dog whose best friend was a bird (Woodstock) and a human (Charlie Brown)... he's so likable that even other SPECIES can relate to him. He's a WWI flying ace, plays tennis at Wimbledon (I played there also in 2001..great story here...ask me about it!) drives a car and can speak French....he is one cool dude (or canine...whatever)! I guess I see a lot of me in Snoopy and Da Vinci! You still reading...;-)

I grew up in the Chicagoland area so have solid Midwestern values with a global perspective. Have traveled far and wide (seen 30 countries and counting). I'm hard working, ambitious and generous. I am financially secure and invest wisely. Very in tune with my intuition and have a soft touch. ;-) The foundation of a great relationship is communication. Both looks and money can be fleeting but it’s the emotional connection you make with someone that sustains you. Authenticity plus Vulnerability = Connection. Active listening is the key. Conversational turn-taking, interpersonal trust and mutual respect. If we were in a relationship, I would give you a foot massage every night! Yup, that's right. I know you work hard and a massage with some candles and soft music help you to relax. You're happy; then we're all happy! ;-) I want to get off this site and find a loving partner where we have a lot of FUN and take great care of each other. ME (quick overview...I know you're busy ;-) * Dependable, emotionally available, rock solid guy * Self-aware: High EQ. I put a lot of emphasis on emotional intelligence...more than IQ * Myers-Briggs Test: I am an ENTJ * Renaissance Man: love math, science and the arts. * Travel is a wonderful way to learn. Have an adventurous spirit--like Indiana Jones! * Compassionate lifestyle: vegan-ish, kindness to people, animals and the planet. I was a Boy scout--I help old ladies cross the road ;-) * Charity work: Volunteer at animal shelters, asked to speak at HS, Universities regarding interfaith dialogue and sustainability. I even met H.H Dalai Lama and Nelson Mandela. * Love playing tennis * Innovator: love technology and watch the latest trends..think Tesla, nanotechnology, Space travel...who know, maybe time travel someday. "Beam me up Scotty"...lol) * Healthy in mind, body and soul (Want to have a green smoothie and do some yoga with me?) * More Timex than Rolex (My smile may be golden, but I'm also pragmatic and reliable ;-)

I love to smile and am looking for someone to smile with. I am a woman who loves to laugh but has no problem carrying a serious conversation. I believe in being honest and have no time for those that don't. I'm open to new adventures but also love staying in and cooking, watching a good movie or reading a good book. I love the sunshine and being active. I try to learn from all experiences in life and enjoy every day to the fullest. In essence, I love life and all that comes with it. I love trying different events and places and it would be great to find someone who is open to the same.

Living in Chicago, Illinois
Veggie/vegan diet.

I'm a very eclectic person with diverse tastes. I've studied Computer Engineering as well as Graphic Design at Purdue University, and I've also taught photography and graphic design at a small private college in Indiana. Currently I write for the technology news site Ars Technica and occasionally freelance for Chicagoist and Alternative Press. I'm pretty easy going but I can be stubborn about things that are important to me. I tend to be very extroverted and have been known to get pretty rowdy at times in public. At home I tend to be pretty quiet and subdued. Things I often spend my time doing: karaoke, dancing, music, photography, autocrossing, crafting, cooking, reading (mostly non-fiction), sudoku, computing, skateboarding (not necessarily in that order).

Sarah, a  Vegan in Chicago Sarah

Living in Chicago, Illinois
Vegan diet.

    For as long as I can remember I have had a strong attraction to animals and nature. I believe that all of nature is equal and one. This has lead me to a vegan lifestyle because I don't believe in causing pain and suffering to others. I work in a veterinary laboratory, testing for the animals, not on them. As well as I work for a small farm animal sanctuary, where I care the animals as well as educate children. I have a pretty good balance of both sides of my brain. I have always been attracted to art and love creating art myself. I am also facinated with learning anything having to do with science. I am currently studing to be a Zoologist, I hope to work in animal behavior and ecosystem conservation.

   I am the only vegan among my friends and would love to find other like minded people for friendship/dating. I do work midnights, so I have an insane schedule, but would like to expand my world past my little bubble!!

I love the sciences from astrophysics to biology even though I am a lawyer by education.  I love to learn about new things, places, people and  culture. I believe in preserving the environment... our actions as individuals go to work as a collective force to shape our global future.   I have been humbled by many experiences both wonderful and challenging and have learned  to appreciate life in almost every way. I am here because I am  interested in making  a new friend, someone with a bright and deep soul. Someone wise and thoughtful.

Friendship, Romance, Passion. There's more to it than that, but you get the idea. So what brings me to this web site? Probably the same things that brought you here. Once we are a few years out of school, the usual ways of meeting people become less usual, and the odds of meeting compatible people drop off quickly. I am honest and sincere, emotionally balanced, and financially stable. I enjoy good conversation and evenings out at dinner and the theater. I read more than I watch TV, exercise regularly (but am not a fanatic about it), and enjoy being outdoors in both summer and winter. I'm an amateur stargazer, I practice yoga, and I do NOT spend my weekends and evenings watching sports on TV. My spiritual outlook is Eastern (i.e., India and Tibet, not New York and Boston), my political outlook is left of center, and my sense of humor tends toward British comedy (esp. Monty Python and Blackadder). In brief, my life is good. But it would be better if shared with a woman who values friendship, romance, and passion.

I'm a southern gentleman who is looking to enjoy what life has to offer. I would like to go exploring the Midwest, while also enjoying the local festivities in the surrounding areas in Madison and Chicago.
I love going to the Farmers' Market on the weekend. Especially when the sun is shinning. I love cooking! And I strive to try out new recipes throughout the year. So be prepared to have your taste buds rocked.

A few years back I went through a health phase in my life, which led me to trying to improve my diet. It eventually evolved to my current plant-based life-style (5 years), which I enjoy. I like it when my grocery store has something new for me to try.
I like sci-fy, and how it opens up the mind to thinking outside the box. I'm also a big fan of the classic video games, and I would take a Mario game over the latest Call of Duty game.

Adam, a  Vegan in Chicago Adam

Living in Chicago, Illinois
Vegan diet.

Hello! I am a proud pet owner of a 8 y/o Akita mix. I am living vegan for a few reasons that I believe define me as a person. Health, with a history of preventable disease among my family. Science and Politics, the facts are out there & should guide our life choices in almost every way. Sustainability, I have always had a deep feeling of connection to people & Earth. Challenge, the vegan lifestyle allows me to push myself to live more purely & challenge others' worldviews from strangers to loved ones. Discipline, I enjoy the routine of meal preparation & food exploration.

I have a bachelor's degree in Community Health and have done some relocation & travel for work in the past. Today, I enjoy being back home in Chicago, as this city has everything the modern world can offer. I have a large network of friends that I have not been in a lot of contact with lately. Many have partnered up & some have started families. I guess you could say I'm looking for my partner.

It must sound like I take myself too seriously so l'll lighten it up a little.  I enjoy all seasons, and all animals with the exception of a few insects & a couple reptiles. I was an athlete my whole life, my most practiced sport was wrestling, while my hobby sport will always be hockey. I have traveled for sporting events & music and really enjoy camping. I'm into all kinds of music, especially live. I've been big into Blues/Rock for the last couple years. I enjoy all kinds of activities & new experiences. There's nothing like some good wine and deep conversation though!

I hope this gives you a good idea of who I am, though I did not say much to represent my sense of humor. However, I will say that I'm only on this site so that I can be sure I'm reaching the better part of the gene pool. So if that is you, let's connect!


Eric, a  Veggie/vegan in Decatur Eric
is a 31 year old, Atheist male.
Living in Decatur, Illinois
Veggie/vegan diet.

My self-summary

First and foremost I am vegan for the animals. In fact, I don't care if a vegan diet was the least healthy with the highest carbon footprint. I'd still want to be vegan. I am happiest when I am with someone with whom I have as much as possible in common. I'm use to doing things by myself. If you get nervous when your man hangs around other women, then I am the man for you because I never am around any other women. I have to say touch is my favorite sense. I enjoy touching my partner and being touched as much as possible. It is very important you feel the same way. Right now my cat receives the brunt of my affection. She hates it.

What I’m doing with my life

I make a good living and I usually work from bed. I see myself as being best matched with someone who dreams big.

Maybe a writer, actress, musician, or scientist. I'd also make nice arm candy for you at your red carpet events :)

I’m really good at

I'm very thoughtful and observant. I take heart in being the man and making chivalrous romantic gestures, you definitely won't have to worry about opening a door when you're with me. I'm also a good listener. I make sure to keep track of all the little things my partner tells me. Then spring them upon her when she least expects it. Details are very important to me. Tell me once your favorite color is yellow and your least favorite color is blue rest assured I will never forget. There will be lots of yellow things coming your way.

The first things people usually notice about me

My height

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I've always thought I'd probably be most compatible with someone who likes to read. It's kind of strange to think this because I don't get a chance to read much myself. People who are content sitting passively and taking in whatever the TV/movie screen spits at them really annoy me.

I'd like to eat a 100% raw vegan diet one day. I enjoy making fruit smoothies. I got addicted to lots of the typical American diet foods as a kid and it's tough to completely break free from that. I work out everyday and I'm quite tall, so my metabolism is very high. This means I need to eat a lot of food. I know this can be very frustrating to women. I try to alleviate this by eating a lot of things that are healthy, but don't taste good like soaked nuts. Fortunately, I never got in to alcohol. I probably can't date someone who drinks. I've found that most drinkers can't understand the concept of teetotal.
It's definitely preferred that you don't drink. Then we can keep all of that stuff out of our lives altogether.

The six things I could never do without

Long make out sessions
Cuddling
Passion
Common interests
Understanding
Love

I spend a lot of time thinking about

Why don't we judge people with fake teeth the way we judge people with fake breasts or hair pieces?

Is there really such a thing as a free will?

On a typical Friday night I am

After 4pm on Friday the first thing that comes to mind is that it is time to relax. This could mean lots of things. Maybe going out to dinner, playing golf, watching a movie, learning a new skill. I am sitting/laying all week, so something that involves moving around is probably best.

The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I like to turn the thermostat down in the bedroom, so I get to use my body heat to keep you warm :)

I've only been vegan since August 2015 but I plan to stick with it for the rest of my life. I absolutely love dogs, but am hesitant to get my own. I'd rather watch YouTube or Netflix than regular tv, although I try to never miss a new episode of Workaholics, Broad City and X-Files. I have a slight addiction to ASMR. I don't mind going to the movie theater by myself, in fact I enjoy it. I love a good glass of Malbec or a smokey scotch. I insist on riding my bike everywhere because it saves time, money, and gives me a work out. I enjoy taking long bike rides to new places, going to comedy shows, going to concerts, picnics, and trying to cook new things. I like to think I'm really good at washing dishes and rolling burritos.

I am 35. Few years back I realized how little I need in life. I feel at peace, even when I am mad. I feel complete, even though I'm writing my profile on a dating site looking for You:) Weird stuff.

 

I was born in Poland, went to college there. In 2005 came to the US, finished college here. I talk with an accent. Currently I work in a profession that has nothing to do with my schooling. I like what I do a lot.

 

Been married and am divorced.

 

Love traveling, music, jack fruit, hiking, mango, swimming, salads without dressing, biking, dry dates, camping and all kinds of outdoor activities. I love mountains, desert, forest and ocean. Major cities are not my thing and yet I live in one:)

 

Since I discovered benefits of raw vegan diet and fasting my life has changed for better. Yet I "lost" a lot of what I used to consider precious.

 

I can't dance.

 

My perfect dream life is to be shared with You in tropics, while breathing clean air, feeling warm breeze from the ocean, eating healthy, staying intellectually, spiritually and physically active and living out of my own web based business.

I make art and write stuff. I'm interested in art, philosophy, and environmentalism. I don't have any kids. I know how to give good massages. Taking good care of myself is important to me. Some of my favorite activities are socializing, interesting conversations, parties, reading books, swimming, long walks, good food, travel, romance, going to hear live music, and almost any experience shared with my special someone. I like rock, pop, techno, punk, and some other types of music. My political views are left-wing. I do not eat dairy, eggs, or meat. I have a job setting up stuff for weddings.

Good quote:
If not now then when?
If not here then where?
If not you then who?

In the middle of a cold Chicago winter a friend asked me if I could be anywhere in the world right now then where would I choose to be? I said Chicago.

If what you have read here interests you, then why don’t we meet? I will be waiting for you at the top of the staircase, by the clock.

Ok this is what you will get here, it seems most females have it in your head that all men are all dogs so yes you are right I am a dog also but see I'm one of those dogs that is done with an abusive, disrespectful, dishonest, uncommitted, unfaithful life and just wants to be in the right life. Attention to new owner this dog has some problems but what he is is primarily housebroken, loyal, protective, respectful, committed, honest, faithful, open minded, down to earth, and much more. If you don't take the time to talk it could be to late.Sorry If you don't like the way I did this I'll be nice and put the regular profile here.

I'm basically an open book, if I don't answer then I'm not ready for you to know that sorry. I have on here That I am a Non Smoker, now I am currently smoking do to the stress that is in my life(which I'm trying to alleviate, but I normally vape. (HONESTY)I will smoke green to kill the pain in my back from my scoliosis regularly no I don't have a med card but I do wish to so less worries( thank you for letting me be honest). Yes I said a Player not PLAYA, I do like to play around and have fun when I am permitted to, but I also view life as a game of knowledge and I'm a player in life till the day I die cause I am now doubling down and I'm all in now baby let's ride. I will not upgrade I'm SORRY I have a few more important things to do, if needs be negotiations can be made to figure something out. Again THANK YOU and please SO MOTE IT BE( not FM).


Rebekah, a  Vegan in Elgin Rebekah
is a 40 year old, spiritual female.
Living in Elgin, Illinois
Vegan diet.

Hi!

I am a fun loving and easy going gal.  I am independant, content and grateful for my lovely life. I am fine being single, but I am only single because I haven't found my soul mate yet....I am a passionate person and I don't have the capacity to settle for a relationship that isn't soul awakening and uplifting.

I have been vegan for two years and I have never felt more wonderful! Giving up animal cuisine has been the best decision I have ever made. I am healthy and strong and compassionate in a new way, and I am looking for a man who is the same.

I have a daughter who lives with me full time, so you must be a family man. If you have your own child or children, all the better as far as I am concerned, but I can't deal with your overbearing ex or drama in any way. I have worked hard to rid my life of that junk, so i am not about to take on yours.

I have a Masters Degree in Clinical Psychology, but I am raising my daughter on my own so I am currently working in her school district as a high school study hall monitor. This allows us to have a parallel schedules so I can earn a living and still be a "stay at home mommy" for her. I drop her off at school, go to work and get off work just in time to pick her up from school in the afternoon. Working in a high school is challenging and fun, but not my life's ambition. It only demands what I am willing to give to my profession- not much. I am unwilling to give less than everything I have to my kid. Being a psychologist right not would take more of my resources than I am willing to give to a job at this time. Raising her is my privilage and I am honored to make sacrifices on her behalf. So, if you want a woman who is all about her career and making a lot of money, I am NOT your girl. I don't care about money. At all.

Finally, I have a lot on my plate, so unless I think you and I will be long term, I will not pursue a relationship with you. But, if we do hit it off, I will be true and honest and loving and all in.

I've had a strange and interesting life; I spent my first years in Alaska, experienced boarding school in India, became a teenager in Chicago, discovered myself in Barcelona, received a degree in Colorado, worked/lived all over the US including Honolulu. Moved back to Chicago in 2010.

 

Share something unusual or extra special about yourself:

I went to boarding school in India from ages 7-10.

Having awareness of self. Willing to look inside and call yourself on your own issues. Willing to take accountability and responsibility for your issues and work to heal them no matter how difficult. Having a daily practice that focuses on inner growth; mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Constantly working to improve oneself in relation to others. And having fun along the way!


What types of healing modalities do you practice or would you like to learn?

I have a personal spiritual practice with which I look internally to discern where I'm out of alignment and what would be beneficial to heal mentally, physically, emotionally, spiritually and sexually. My ultimate goal is self mastery; to have a primary relationship with my self so that I may be able to share my self with another as the basis of the relationship.


What are you most passionate about?

I love volunteering my technology and leadership skills/experience at non-profits. I also enjoy mentoring and tutoring people from grade school up through college. Helping others where I feel I can make a difference.

About me... Well, mostly I am curious about how to meet more vegetarian/vegan people, 97.5% of the humans I know are your typical carnist... with the ever unoriginal vegetarian jokes, and who cannot seem to fathom a plant-based diet. 

what else... I love animals and nature (obvi) I also really like video games, and legos, and the Bourne movies. I have this really weird aversion/phobia to Tom Cruise... I will NEVER watch a mission impossible movie with you... same goes for midgets so no freak shows or little people big world, or whatever that midget show is. This is getting real weird real quick, but it will likely give you a pretty accurate idea of my personality and wha to expect from me so, whatevs, I guess. 

Well, I have no idea what else to put in this stupid describe yourself box, so this is where I stop.

I am a single divorced woman for 15 years and my daughter is in college now. I work a lot and am looking for someone to spend time who can make me laugh and loves pets also :) I have only become vegetarian in the last year although I didn't eat pork for years before that because I have pet pigs. Slowly I did away with all flesh. It's very hard to date people who eat meat I am finding. I could date someone who eats meat but not pork of any sort.

This is kind of awkward to fill out but, here are some basic things about me that will never really change.

I am demisexual

I am an independant soul 

I am a relaxed critical thinker 

I love adventure

I although I am an introvert I enjoy socializing (INTJ/INFJ)

I love nature and animals

I enjoy art, the macabre, nature, animals, casual gaming, the gym, red wine, and a lot of other shit that would probably bore you.

I am not clingy but if someone wants a serious relationship with me they should be capable of being openly honest with me or monogamy.

I love and respect myself so I dont tollerate bullshit.

My passion is found in what allows people live up to their potential. Travel exploring finding new understanding in the world around us. Building and creating, finding how things work. I have Been a Vegetarian for 30+ years back when it was not so popular.My hair was longer then. lol Each person we encounter has a story and a lessen to teach us I am constantly amazed at the insight we can learn from the most unexpected people.

tcp21, a  Vegetarian in Crystal Lake tcp21
is a 36 year old, Christian / Protestant female.
Living in Crystal Lake, Illinois
Vegetarian diet.

I'm a: daughter, niece, granddaughter, sister, friend, writer, cat-mom, home cook, vegetarian, djembe player, zealous reader, world traveler, former musician, big-picture thinker, city lover, slow runner.

I like to read everything I can get my eyes on, watch obscure documentaries on Netflix, listen to Stuff You Missed in History Class podcasts, think about how to be a better person, pet my cats, and complain about how I always get sucked into the comments on internet news articles.

I love board games, books, Doctor Who, and any show Joss Whedon has ever laid a finger on. I like theater, including ballet, opera, plays, and musicals. My favorite musical is The Book of Mormon, my favorite ballet is The Rite of Spring. My current favorite board game is Ticket to Ride, though I love Settlers, Forbidden Island, Wadjet, and traditional games as well. I care about spelling and grammar, even in text messages.


I care deeply about things like taking care of the planet, living compassionately, and trying to make the world a better place. I'm fairly certain that a large portion of that can happen around a dinner table, and I believe in eating together with anyone and everyone.


I'm spending my life changing the world, one life at a time. no, seriously. By caring about people, building a community, empowering others to reach out and do justice and serve with compassion. By cooking and eating, fighting sexism and racism, reading and writing, praying and teaching. By figuring out creative ways to experience the sacred. And by talking a lot and listening not quite enough.

I'm very good at pretending to follow recipes while actually making shit up in the kitchen, all the while telling myself that if it's not good I can always order in. I've never yet had to order a pizza due to kitchen disaster.

I'm also really good at finding my way around foreign cities, laughing, telling long winded stories, and making faces if the wine is too dry.

And I have really REALLY great hair.


Steve, a  Vegan in Itasca Steve

Romantic, kind, and gentle guy with a virtually endless variety of interests. I'd like a partner to help me explore the world, and to build a lasting, loving, and supportive relationship. I am able to move almost anywhere to spend life with my twin flame.
 
Easy-going, witty, patient, loving, compassionate, non-judgmental, and a good & loyal friend. I am very open and emotionally available; some would say evolved. My attitudes and behaviors are very positive, light hearted, and consistent. I will never let go of your hand or stop hugging you. I believe that common values are more important than common interests, and that simple pleasures are the best.
 
Some of my interests: travel, kayaking, biking, hiking, swimming, keeping fit & healthy, yoga, beaches, mountains, volunteer work, biographies, classical music, NPR, continued learning, word games, writing Haiku, American Southwest, French language & culture, contra dancing, museums, fine art, foreign cinema, and romance in any form. Animal rights supporter and member of many vegetarian/vegan/raw groups.
 
Thirty years of a plant-based diet and a lifelong healthy lifestyle have blessed me with a body, mind and spirit far younger than my chronological age (except for accumulated wisdom, of course). My photos are about three years old, but I have not suffered any significant physical deterioration since they were taken. My diet is 75% raw.

As of January 1st 2016 I made a life choice of eating a whole foods plant based diet. There are many reasons that opened my eyes to this change. Living in this area its hard to meet people with the same views that have changed my way of living. I love cooking and creating new ideas. I believe creativity is a major key to this lifestyle. I am looking to find someone to be creative with, share recipes and other ideas. I am very active in health and fitness, so finding someone with that kind of lifestyle is ideal. I love animals, marijuana(medical and recreational), working out, movies, nature/hiking, and music! Looking forward to meeting some new people!

I have been a vegetarian since 1997, which is when I finally realized i was eating soemthing I care deeply about... animals. I do eat organic eggs because of my other dietary restrcition to be gluten free. I also really enjoy make raw food dishes. I have been told my raw desserts are to die for! I like to eat seasonally. From the small amount of food I produce in my back yard and farmers markets. So I eat more raw food in the summer. While in the winter I love soups and veggie stews. 

I would describe myself and part 50's housewife who love to cook, maintain her home, garden, sew, and care for others. And part free spirit who loves exploring nature, having fun, and who has considered just buying an RV and living off the grid. 

My career is a massage therapist and nail technician. Since I am self employed, it can keep me very busy. However I do set my own hours and I find my work very rewarding. I work out of my home and at a local spa. I am also looking into teaching massage. I would hesitate to relocate because of my career. 

I am intelligent, fun-loving, open-minded, friendly, affectionate, energetic, bubbly, down to earth, flirtatious, and have a good sense of humor. (That is how my sisters and friends described me!) I love to laugh! I do best out of crowded areas like bars, parties, and clubs. I love to bicycle, kayak,  camp, hike, and just enjoy nature.  Another hobby is spoiling my lab and 2 cats. =^,,^=

I'd like to meet a woman who is athletic, accomplished, beautiful, and affectionate. In return, I pledge the following: 1. A voyage at one of my biannual parties: my best friends humor me, boogie until the break of dawn, and when I find them plunging into the leftover moist vegan chocolate cake, they always, always leave a piece for my date. 2. Bootcamp to my favorite beat. I'm a disciplined fitness aficionado, and when the dance music starts, you and me will bear crawl to the top, even if I have to carry you on my back (all about teamwork, baby!). After a good workout, we'll hit the tennis courts (I'm a 3.0), and end the day with a little salsa/merengue. Bachata, anyone? 3. Charisma. I've actually had to work at this one, but it's paid off: chairing political, animal protection, and graduate school alumni groups; and running my own successful business for 17+ years. I strive to be the best-dressed man in the room (people often steal my ensemble for their own...Halloween costume:)).

I'm actually a panro asexual, and I'm non-binary (though I personally don't care about pronouns), but the options here are limited, so eh. I do all kinds of crafts - knitting, sewing, crochet, shuttle/needle tatting, etc. I'm pretty nerdy - Star Wars being my personal holy grail of geekdom. I'm a big fan of "netflix and chill" and I really love sweet foods.

I'm probably most looking for friends, but I certainly am not opposed to finding a girlfriend, if that were to happen.

Oh, and I'm in a wheelchair. Pain disorder in my foot prevents me from walking.

I am very sarcastic and love to cuddle.

Honestly, don't know what to say here. I'll write more/better stuff later.

I've been vegetarian/vegan for over 10 years. Health and environment are important to me, but I'm veg for ethical reasons. I'm an open-minded guy who is passionate about his beliefs. I enjoy bicycling when I'm not falling off tearing my rotator cuff. Owww! I learned how to ride a motorcycle a couple years ago and love it. I've got a thing for two wheels, but that doesn't mean I don't love driving my Toyota Prius. I'm open to all sorts of activities as long as the end result isn't a full body cast or arrest! :( I've got a huge, soft spot for animals. I've been described as, by reputable sources of course ;), bright, witty, trustworthy and dependable (class dependable to be exact with the H.S. yearbook to prove it). I'm a fun, creative guy who is full of surprises and who knows what else.

I am not looking for a Russian bride to bring to America so you can kill me in my sleep once you get here.You can stop contacting me!! Also, If youre a shadow person with no pic...move along....Like clowns, shadow people kinda creep me out.  I love animals, especially dogs, so the corny saying....must love dogs..does apply. I like to walk/run 3-5 miles a day and cook healthy 80% vegetarian organic meals Even though I have kissed enough frogs to last two lifetimes, I still believe the right one is out there....so the quest continues. I am soooo done with kissing frogs though!!!
I do not enjoy watching sports on TV. There are much better ways to spend 3 hours than to sit on the couch watching dudes chase a ball around with Doritos crumbs all over your shirt. So If youre a 40  year old woman with a closet full of sports jerseys, its safe to say, I am not the guy for you. I rarely drink alcohol and prefer drinking an iced coffee while watching others stumble off their stools. I love to cook healthy organic vegetarian delicious tasting meals. Ingredient shopping has taken over my life and can be a real pain because it seems to never fricken end, but I still enjoy it though . Im really laid back and ez to get along with and find humor in most situations. Im a little bit of a bad boy type but with a heart of gold...How can you go wrong with that!!.

My name is Robert.  I have three professions; I estimate construction and save tax payers hard earned dollars, I'm a professional photographer and I'm a Reiki Master Teacher. I love all the work that I do for its very rewarding.

I shoot Photograhy for some not for profit groups gratis as this is my way of giving back to the community.

The Reiki that I do is also very amazing. I work with all your chakras placing crystals on them. Reiki relieves stress and if stress can be eliminated..this allows the body to heal.

Bill, a  Veggie/vegan in Chicago Bill

Living in Chicago, Illinois
Veggie/vegan diet.

Thoughtful, kind and easy going, I'm a great listener and conversationalist with a slightly sarcastic, somewhat offbeat sense of humor. Sometimes quiet and introspective; other times I'll talk your ear off. I'm an engineer, farmer, environmental and animal rights advocate, handyman and cook. A bit of a news junkie. Love documentaries. Outdoor enthusiast - hiker, sailor, photographer and cyclist. Passionate, compassionate and sometimes a bit overwhelmed by all that needs to be done in this world. I grew up on a farm in Illinois, but have been an urban dweller for the past 20 years, working as a mechanical and environmental engineer and life cycle assessment (LCA) practitioner.

I've been working on simplifying my life and getting back to basics so I can live a more sustainable, self-sufficient lifestyle. I'm currently living back in Chicago after spending a few years in the SF Bay area. I've been learning about Permaculture for the past several years, and am a co-organizer for the Chicago Permaculture Guild. Would love to build a permaculture lifestyle with the right person. I currenly work from home as a independent contractor for a company that certifies green products. My work provides me with financial independence and a very flexible schedule to do some of the things I couldn't find time to do before when I worked 9-5 in an office. One of my newer passions is sailing. I've joined a sailing club here in Chicago, where we sail on Lake Michigan. My dream is to one day sail throughout the Mediterranean. I enjoy traveling, trekking through the mountains, and seeing other cultures. I'd love to have a partner that wants to travel with me - South America, Africa, India, Europe; to far-flung places in the world. I don't want to do it alone.

I am a beautiful and intelligent woman waiting for the right man who can see me shine. I am committed to taking back my life and that includes getting healthier. I have recently discovered the benefits of being a vegetarian and would appreciate someone who would cook this way with me. I call myself a "transitional vegetarian" because I have given up all meat except occasional fish. I love Salmon! Shellfish is for special occasions. I am staying away from dairy now also. I'm told it is best to avoid gluten. I look for organic and non-gmo products. If you are Vegan, I would love to learn more from you! I could be convinced to go Vegan for health reasons. Please don't ask me to give up my leather.

 

Friendship first is important because a relationship will not last and be satisfying without it. Mutual interests are important but the emotional and physical attraction are the most important things. A spiritual connection is an important part also. I love to entertain at home so dinner and a movie "in" is welcome most evenings. I can be social and "out" on the town also if you like. I am creative with crafty hobbies, sewing, etc. I enjoy making "lemonade out of lemons" so most of my treasures are found at thrift stores. I have a degree in the social sciences and have worked as a para-professional social worker with developmentally disabled, mentally ill, and elderly. I have lots of interests and love to learn more. I have a lot to offer the right man at the right time.

 

I appreciate intelligence and a good sense of humor. I am not very materialistic although I appreciate the gifts God gives me. My ideal partner should have plenty of positive energy like me and be able to express his emotions as needed to grow. In the beginning, I think we each need our own space as we get to know each other...then the time we spend together is more precious. I do like romantic gestures and affection as the connection develops.

 

For a first date, I don't need anything fancy. Conversation and coffee (or tea) is fine. I'm not divorced yet. As you probably know, cutting legal ties is not always easy. My marriage has been stagnated in a platonic relationship for years but I am only just separated for 6 months due to economic reasons. I expect to be divorced in 2015. If that puts you off to meet under these circumstances, I understand. But keep me in mind for 2015. We can meet in public as friends if you are comfortable with that.

 

I miss and appreciate affection very much but will have to wait for the full passion of a romantic commitment. When that time is right, my sensuality will fully come through. I don't hold back in that area in a loving , loyal, committed relationship. I have not had this for many years. I am looking forward to the relationship I have always wanted. However, in the meantime, I think that seeking friends is worthwhile. I believe that any first date is worth the time and effort even if it does not lead to romance. The reason I say this is because you can learn a lot about yourself, others, and relationships by talking with a variety of people. So meet me without pressure and with friendship in mind. I am very intuitive, open, and fun to be with. Even if we find we are not compatible for romance, we each might learn something valuable and have fun in the process.

Enjoy biking, cycling,hiking, etc. Organizing my own travel I'm always up for a camping trip, car trip, scenic drive, or any trip involving nature, weekend excusions, particularly in the mountains and staring at Fractal art. Also have a geeky love for rocks!

What I’m doing with my life

While living in Montana from February 2002 - November 2013, I gained the freedom and self-confidence that had once eluded me. After I became a widow in September 2013, I needed to return to my home state of Illinois, to be with my family and regroup. I will to return to Montana, as soon as the resources to do so are available to me. Depending on circumstances, I might consider other states in the west - northwest, including Alaska. But Montana will always be my most beloved state, and first consideration, regarding places to reside.

Life certainly is an exhilarating and interesting experience!

Meanwhile, I'm exploring my artistic talents to try new things, and connecting with people more willingly, openly, and happily, while still enjoying moments of solitude. The experience of a deep connection is something I haven't had for a time and miss, and am working on to remedy.

I do meditate on a daily basis. I am adventerous and like to travel, try new restaurants, go to musicals, concerts. I have a dysfunctional family of four cats! Currently dabbling in making "mash-up" music. I can't go to animal shelters because I will walk away trying to adopt all of them.

Veggie/vegan diet.

My personality is very laid-back and leans toward positive. I enjoy doing the normal social activities most people enjoy as well as others. I'm open minded and willing to try new things as long as I am clicking with my partner. Other things I enjoy include biking, photography, reading, and some international travel.

Vegetarian diet.

I love surrounding myself with positive people. I feel the ingredient to success in life is to be around the right crowd. I am always optimistic, and like to make others smile and laugh. I can be talkative but also a great listener. I live and work in downtown Chicago. I like living in the city, there so many activities to engage yourself in. I am always working hard, trying to be a professional in my occupation. On the weekends and weeknights, I like going out for coffee with friends, maybe watch a movie, and check out the nightlife. I live by the motto, "time is scarce", so you have to make the most of it, or else time will pass you by.
