Paul4552, a  Vegan in Salisbury Paul4552
is a 64 year old, spiritual male.
Living in Salisbury, Maryland
Vegan diet.

Hello: My name is Paul. I am a spititual person and have been a vegetarian since 1970 and a vegan since 2001. A bit of an artist and musician. I love the outdoors, and I am an easy going person that has been through a lot of trials and tribulations. I'd like to live out the second half of my life with a partner. I feel I have a lot to give and I'm willing to receive as well as learn. I'm also willing to relocate under the right circumstances. I play the guitar and sitar as a hobby. I'd like to hear a little about you, so If what I told you fits in with your ideas, write me and let me know.

Savana, a  Vegan in Takoma Park Savana

Living in Takoma Park, Maryland
Vegan diet.

I sometimes wish I had been born a less complex creature with an exotic name, like a marmot, so I could spend my time foraging for grasses, berries, lichens, and flowers instead of spending so much time trying to figure out my place in the Universe. Robert Schumann once said that the artist's place is to send light into the human heart, and I am a vegan because I hope that my example in this regard will also send light into the human heart. I am signed to a record label. I am trying to find my way as a solo artist these days (piano), and I am illustrating a book I wrote trying to give a voice to factory-farmed animals in a humorous way. I think humor is also a way into the human heart. I laugh frequently and seek out things that make me laugh. I love dogs, and you should love them, too, not just tolerate them or enjoy them at a distance. I have large dogs (2 standard poodles and an Irish Water Spaniel). I own a small home with a big back yard, and I play with my dogs a lot back there. I work as an online editor for a university in Taiwan, where I lived for 5 years. I edit Master's and PhD-level research writtten by speakers of Chinese in English. I love nature. I grew up on a 165 acre wheat farm and spent good weather wandering the countryside with my dogs. I meditate daily. I have a very eclectic spiritual background, but I do not adhere to any specific religious dogma. I feel deeply, but I try not to take myself too seriously.

Vegan diet.

Have you considered that your partner may be farther away and somewhat older than you thought? You never know how life, love and chemistry will work out. Friends and family say that I'm fun, loving, happy, romantic, compassionate, and very loyal with a good sense of humor. I've been a vegetarian for most of my life, vegan for a few years and have been told I seem younger than I am. I enjoy the mountains, art, eastern philosophy, ethnic/health foods, movies/indie film and being on or near the water. Also most music, literature, sailing, hiking, photography (mainly of nature and wild animals), believe in preserving wildlife and the environment. Dining out, day trips are enjoyable as well as exploring any place my journeys have taken me. Having enjoyed traveling some I want to see more of this wonderful world, but I would love to see it with you so much more. I have been to Toronto, Victoria, Paris, London, and Liverpool so far. Paris was beautiful, the English countryside breathtaking and Stonehenge was hypnotic... It's not what you are doing but who your with that matters to me. Anything can be fun, enchanting and enjoyable if your with that very special lovely woman. She will be my best friend and I will tell her every day what an amazing woman she truly is.


Michael, a  Vegan in Gaithersburg Michael
is a 36 year old, spiritual male.
Living in Gaithersburg, Maryland
Vegan diet.

My diet currently is 100% Raw-Vegan because it feels amazing, to look great, never get sick, mental clarity, more energy, happy all day! It compels me to live my mission and to find the truth of why I am here on Earth. It allows me to be the best I can be at every single moment. It is MUCH easier to smile, laugh, feel joy, bliss, and love when eating simple raw plant foods. Why doesn't everyone know about this? That is part of my mission: educating people on how to achieve a diet consisting of a higher percentage of raw vegan foods. Aside from educating the public and sharing methods on how to feel healthier and happier, I also enjoy weight training, running, guitar, tennis, golf, snowboarding, dancing, singing, traveling, hiking in nature, camping, and concerts. I am a down-to-earth person and easy going. I am also a "mover and shaker." So, when I want something....I GO FOR IT. I know that it's more important to how I am BEING rather than what I am DOING though. Afterall, we are human-"beings" and not human-"doings."

Steve, a  Vegan in Lexington Park Steve
is a 59 year old, Agnostic / not religious male.
Living in Lexington Park, Maryland
Vegan diet.

I like who I am. I'm honest, kind, compassionate, down to earth, caring, affectionate, sensitive, young at heart, pro-choice, intelligent, fun, passionate, creative and liberal ... and proud of it.

I care about the environment and treatment of animals.  I'm morally opposed to zoos and keeping animals (especially mammals) in captivity. I'm a good cook. I recycle and buy cruelty-free products and organic food when possible. I’m a good kisser. I believe in evolution.

I'm a moderate drinker, usually wine with dinner. I have an open mind about alternative remedies, but don't reject Western medicine, either.

I have eclectic musical tastes. I enjoy reading and love movies, especially independent films. I'm probably the only guy you will ever meet who owns The Jane Austen Book Club.

I have no religious faith, but do have a spiritual side largely influenced by Buddhism and Taoism. Imagine a blend of Joseph Campbell, The Tao of Pooh and Chief Seattle. I like what the Dalai Lama said: "My religion is kindness." I do my best to live a life of compassion, keep things in perspective, treat others as I want to be treated, and try not to get too attached to material stuff.

Thumbs up: Shakespeare, my two cats, good wine, the Beatles, sharing the Sunday NY Times, Macs, tennis, loons, cooking for someone I love, NPR, Leo Kottke music, traditional jazz, the second movement of Beethoven's 7th Symphony, The New Yorker, cartoons before movies, cuddling, long walks, holding hands, and slow, sweet kisses.

Thumbs down: Donald Trump, hunting & fishing, arrogance, the Confederate flag, cigarettes & cigars, beets (allergic), FOX Noise, Bible-thumpers, NASCAR, reality TV, and Limbaugh, Palin, Hannity, Coulter et al.

A few of my heroes: Rosa Parks, Julia Butterfly Hill, the Dalai Lama, Martin Luther King Jr., Jimmy Carter, Albert Einstein, Pete Seeger, Michael Moore, Natalie Maines, Elizabeth Warren.

Useless talents and fun facts: I can do Monty Python's Spam and Constitutional Peasant sketches. I’ve written a book narrated by a cat. I own every Beatles album on vinyl. I know both the opening AND closing theme songs of Gilligan's Island. My Little League batting average was .000.

My favorite quote: He who thinks he knows, doesn't; he who knows he doesn't know, knows.

I'd like to make a difference in the world and share my life with a kindred spirit in a loving, passionate, intimate, committed, forever relationship. I think happiness is even better when it's shared with someone special.

is a 55 year old, spiritual female.
Living in Annapolis, Maryland
Vegan diet.


I am a positive, self-sufficient, and fun-loving vegan.  I chose a vegetarian life-style over 20 years ago because of my deep conviction for animal rights and have gone full vegan over a year ago.  I recently founded a non-profit to provide sanctuary for neglected and abused exotic birds and to raise awareness about the plight of captive parrots and parrots in the wild.

When I have time . . . I love watching sports (Go O's! and Skins!) and working out at the gym.  I love any activity that brings me close to nature.

Jaetu, a  Raw food in Columbia Jaetu
is a 62 year old, spiritual male.
Living in Columbia, Maryland
Raw food diet.

I value personal growth and living life in the balance. Basically, I am an eastern man as what I practice has come from eastern thought and spiritual disciplines. I have drawn to my life those tools that assist any human to be able to experience personal growth and to be a benefit to others in assisting them to do the same. I changed my diet at the age of 19 excluding meat of any kind and evolved my diet through the years in order to get to where I am today. What we put into our mouths certainly colors how we shall live and think. Ahimsa is the real principle to not eating meat and that equates to not being violent towards other living entities, which should include the 'self'. I began the practive of yogic disciplines at the age of 21 and decided to stay with the internal martial arts, it is a way of life for me. I am native to Dayton Ohio and moved to Wash. D.C. to go to Howard U. This is where my destiny unfolded.

Living in Baltimore, Maryland

Conservative (with a real goofy side :p ) leaning towards very conservative, I believe the best impact humans can have on the planet is none at all. I like to take alot of nature walks (mostly in the spring and summer) and work/socialize with animals. Despite my conservativeness I enjoy playing video games and watching tv and movies (the scarier or super...heroer? the better). I also enjoy a random game of pool, bowling(preferably at a bowling alley not someone's house unless I hate them and WANT to break all of their appliances and furniture), or miniture golf here or there.

Steve, a  Veggie/vegan in Wheaton Steve
is a 54 year old, male.
Living in Wheaton, Maryland
Veggie/vegan diet.

I am originally from Maryland, but spent many years in Southern California. Since I moved back, I don't really miss LA (well maybe sometimes :)). My favorite beach town is Ocean City, MD (and that includes California beaches) and I spend my weekends there during the summer. I have the flexibility to move to another city, but my preference at this time is to stay within a few hours of this area (maybe I can be talked into moving somewhere else :)). I have to admit I’m a night person (not all night :)), and going out to a place with good music and dancing can get me going. But, I also like a cozy evening stayin in and watchin a movie with the right person. I am a former DJ (radio and clubs) and have a wide variety of musical tastes (yes I like hip hop and country too). I am also a strict vegetarian (almost vegan) because of ethical reasons involving treating animals with kindness... and I love dogs. I have found it hard to meet other ethical vegetarians that I am interested in dating, so maybe we will find each other on here :)

Nick_Isley, a  Vegetarian in Laurel Nick_Isley
is a 39 year old, spiritual male.
Living in Laurel, Maryland
Vegetarian diet.

I would describe myself as a fairly laid back character who likes to go with the flow. I try to spend my time living a (fairly) peaceful existence. My profession is somewhat stressful, so I like to use my free time to seek out things that keep my mind at peace. In my free time I'm a huge fan of reading, where my interests range from classic literature to science and technology. I also love books on anthropology, history, philosophy, as well as just plain goofy stuff. Though I love the feel of a nice paper book in my hands, lately my kindle has become my favorite bit of tech. I'm also a lover of physical activity. I try to stay fit, and generally workout several days a week. I admit it, I can be a bit of a gym rat, but I also love the feeling of a good long run along a secluded nature trail. One of my best traits is that I am well traveled, love learning about different cultures, and though I was raised here, I have lived outside of the United States during my adult life. I think that lends itself to my open minded demeanor.

Roey, a  Vegan in Bethesda Roey
is a 37 year old, Jewish male.
Living in Bethesda, Maryland
Vegan diet.

Born in Israel, raised in Washington DC, got my education from UMD and Hopkins and now work in the Information Security sector. I break stuff at work for fun and profit, and make stuff at home for fame and delicious glory. One of these days I'll open a vegan candy store; message me for more info. In short: I have a fun job, I exercise and my rice cooker's always boiling away. I have my stuff together, but can still laugh at myself. Tight with my family, and I keep a solid connection with the Jewish community in DC. Sound like your scene? Send me a mail. What I'm doing: Hacking Government computer networks (fun!!) and getting paid for it (profit!!) Filling up my balcony every spring with greens. Climbing up and down twenty floors in the office at lunchtime. Twice. Visiting my larger family in Israel every year. Crawling Wikipedia and sponging up gooey knowledge on whatever I can get my hands on. Staying up till Three in the morning with friends making sweet, sweet art. I doodle a lot to keep my brain busy.

I'm have been a lacto-ovo vegetarian for more than half my life now. I enjoy running (although for most of my life I never thought I'd say that!) and last year finished my first and second marathons respectively within three weeks of each other. I am currently training for my first ultra-marathon, coming up in November 2014. I enjoy literature, film, art, road trips, and constantly learning new things. I like to write as well, and I perform stand-up comedy every now and again.

Avram, a  Veggie/vegan in Rockville Avram
is a 37 year old, Agnostic / not religious male.
Living in Rockville, Maryland
Veggie/vegan diet.

The best way to describe myself is as an intellectual gearhead. I'm just as comfortable with my hands in an engine, as I am discussing world events, speculating on the metaphysics, or designing computer systems. That last one is actually my job. I'm well traveled and would like to see more of the world. When I travel overseas, I'm all about understanding what it's like to live in whatever place I'm visiting. When I travel domestically, I try to find all the Frank Lloyd Wright buildings in the area. I enjoy spending time with my friends, usually with coffee or drinks with good conversation or games like Spanish Monopoly or bowling (gutterball here I come). Overall, I guess you could say I'm pretty open-minded and easy-going.

Summer, a  Vegetarian in Rockville Summer
is a 55 year old, spiritual female.
Living in Rockville, Maryland
Vegetarian diet.

Easy going, friendly, health conscious, caring, hard working but loves free time,  loves animals and laughter seeks activity partner, maybe more. I am interested in taking things slow letting a friendship develop first.   

Myers Briggs tells me I am an INFP. 

My interests include comedy shows, art exhibits, and being outside in the summer (but under shade as my skin won't tan well).  I love paddling a kayak or rowboat, reading by a river’s edge, chilling at the shore, and hiking or camping.   Some places I've been to include road tripping down the Pacific Coast Highway, camping in the desert SW, hiking in Arches, Zion, Grand Canyon and, of course close to home too, chateaus in the Loire Valley, whale watching off San Diego, dophin swimming in the Florida Keys...

This time of year I like outdoor concerts and festivals, live music, art exhibits and fresh honey and fruits from orchards.  Personal and spiritual growth, family, and caring about the environment and animals are passions.  So is staying in shape. It feels right to make the effort.

Sharing interests in some or all of these endeavors would be great.

I like warmer climates over colder, less crowded over cities, and movies and books over news.

Spiritually a mixture of Buddhist/Christian. 

If any of this sounds like you, please send me a note. If not best of luck to you in your search!




Kyra7, a  Vegetarian in  Camp Springs Kyra7
is a 37 year old, spiritual female.
Living in Camp Springs , Maryland
Vegetarian diet.

Describe myself...hum this is an interesting question because this is the first time that I am describing myself on a dating website. Well, here we go, I consider myself to be adventurous, but kind of shy. I know you are wondering how can I be advenurous and shy, it is because I am an omnivert, an omnivert is a person who likes to be social but also likes to be alone as well. I enjoy exploring the surroundings such as taking nature walks at the park, visiting museums, seeing a play, exploring cultural events also I enjoy cozying up watching a good movie at home. I love having discussions about the deeper meaning to life, watching documentaries, or short films on cultural, and social issues within our world. I consider myself to be very spiritual, I believe in the a higher power, and don't take His presence in my life for granted. I am a teacher by trade but a student on life. I believe we are all here on this wonderful planet to learn and grow, and that is what I look forward to do each and everyday.  


My diet lifestyle, I have done everything. I grew up as a meat-eater, changed my diet at the age of 27, and decided that I no longer wanted to eat meat. My reason for changing wasn't political, or social but spiritual. I opened myself up to learning more about what is my purpose here on earth, learning about who created the universe, and discovered that the Creator says meat is poison to the body. I will share more if you later on that subject. Anywho, I have done everything from vegetarian, vegan, raw foods diet, the 20\80 diet, and now I am back to being a vegetarian diet (can't give up the cheese yet). Maybe you can help me with that, but as far as I am now, I feel pretty content with my diet, but I am interested in changing back to veganism, one day. This is only the frosting on the cake, if you want to know more and desiring to grow, learn with me, don't hestiate to connect.

Lou, a  Vegetarian in Rockville Lou

Living in Rockville, Maryland
Vegetarian diet.



As the last third or perhaps the last half of my life is entered, it is good to ask what is worth pursuing.  I think in terms of the stages of life; student; career(s); householder raising a family; and now freedom to chose.  This is the phase where one may dedicate oneself fully to solving the mysteries and unraveling the true nature of life. Humans are likely spiritual, the very essence of love at the core.  The times I’ve been in love have been the most exhilarating times.  The unseen atmosphere seems to glisten with a luminance that brightens every aspect of life.  So how can one resist signing up on Veggie Date and searching for that special person with whom the magic manifests and the night becomes like day.  A great quote from Rumi,


'Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.'  I love philosophy (concepts), psychology (science of the soul), and spirituality (the practices that lead to self realization and God realization) in pursuit of the ultimate divine experience.  OK, meditation is an important everyday practice for me.  That leaves 21 hours a day where I live a relatively normal life enjoying the life of a lover (should one manifest), business, wilderness activities, various responsibilities, travel, entertainment, and dealing with the challenges that come my way.  I would like to find a mate/friend to share life with, explore, and build a relationship with which removes all barriers to both physical and spiritual love.




I’ve inspired many students as a teacher (public school, including 5 yrs in bush Alaska and 2yrs at the university level), been a radiation safety professional (State of MI and Nuclear Regulatory Commission – incident response), a team leader, a project manager, and a certified health physicist.  I’ve traveled a fair amount and lived in many states.  I have two amazing children, one (network security) starting a new career at MIT LL in Boston, the other in her senior year undergrad (math & physics) in MI.  I retired from the NRC about three years ago and am enjoying the freedom to pursue my own interests very much.  I stay busy (never a dull moment) working on various projects and business investments.  Life is divine (even the worst calamities are there to teach us) and I’m happy to embrace it.  I would also like to embrace a warm and lasting friendship, so if the pull becomes irresistible, I invite you to share a little of your life with me.

mrshan, a  Veggie/vegan in Baltimore mrshan
is a 34 year old, spiritual male.
Living in Baltimore, Maryland
Veggie/vegan diet.

I am a laid back, open minded and a very happy kinda guy. I am a thinker (trying to close in the gap between Idealism and Realism) I do like to think that I have patience and a feeling of empathy for everyone. Most definitely love for the environment and all the lovely creatures. Yeah, I know it's easier said than done and so this is exactly where my idealism vs realism fight begins and continues... so since I am only a human I do have my moments where some things can be let down or a disappointment. But I try to work it out... live and learn and repeat. I also consider myself more spiritual and don't exactly care for any organized religion although I do enjoy learning about different cultures and beliefs.

I love being active, working out, running, dancing (especially flamenco) outdoor activities, and I adore the beach as I grew up by the Mediterranean Sea... Ahhhh! I have been a estrict vegeterarian for 25 years, almost veganand am in transition to raw food now. I am 45 years old, but I really feel 25.

Vegetarian diet.

I am queer, genderqueer, and gender nonconforming. I have a sense of humor. I find every opportunity for laughter. 

I am a great ape trans-species hybrid, but don't bother if you only want to use me for the hot, intensely passionate, 24-hour sex sessions that my kind are notorious for. Seriously, you'd never survive it without the necessary training.

A few of the things I have been influenced by are: Buddhism, western philosophy, animal rights, and ecology. I am highly creative and yet have a logical mind. I am unconventional. I am an atheist and have already installed my consciousness in an subterranean supercomputer.

I work as a writer.

I think and theorize a lot, read about a bunch of topics, and enjoy talking.

I enjoy science fiction.

I like rollerblading.

I love spending time with nature.

I like growing plants and befriending animals (including humans).

I like writing letters.

I like computers. I built two. I use Linux and Windows, but prefer Linux. Sometimes I like programing. I am learning Python at this time.

I like to make veggie soup.

I do fiber arts. I knit, sew, and crochet. I prefer natural fibers. I invented a form of fiber art that does not have a name. I figured out how to knit an entire row at a time (rather than one stitch at a time), but I have not gotten around to making the device for doing that. I made a simple loom. I am new at fashion design, but I have some concepts.

I do origami.

I am good at seeing things about a social situation that others miss, imagining possibilities, and appreciating others as unique individuals.  I love homemade vegetable soup. I think up a lot of puns when I am under stress.

I was a vegetarian for 23 years, have been a vegan for 6 years.  I like all animals, but know birds best.  I work for a nonprofit, have been doing it over twenty years.  I just retired in June 2015 but will work a little to make ends meet (and not go nuts).  I haven't traveled much, but I like being outdoors.  I'm a liberal arts kind of person.  I love music, have no talent for it but I keep trying to play it.  I grew up in a sports family and follow my home teams but I don't watch a lot of sports.  Or anything else on TV.  Friends tell me how great TV shows are these days but I just am not interested for some reason.  (Update: I like Vikings.  Hate the violence, but enjoy it otherwise.)  It's easy to eat vegan, but a little tricky to be a vegan in the real world.  I'm usually low-key.  I almost never get angry at people, but I have verbally and physically assaulted some old cars and faulty appliances.

Sometimes you have to slay a few dragons....

(Slaying dragons may not be very eco-friendly so I can assure you I only slay metaphorical dragons...)

Truth be told, I would be more likely to be defending them than slaying them. In a former life, I could be found in Massachusetts, usually in Boston, protesting and collecting signatures for animal protection initiatives. These days I get to work on these issues within the confines of a cube, under a small disco ball, through managing advertising campaigns at a large non-profit organization. Nothing pulls at my heart strings more than those that do not have a voice. Almost nothing....I melt a bit when I see a picture of a man and a cat, or better yet, a cat in a hat. 

Having hung my proverbial hat in this area for the past 8 years, the DC playground feels like home, whether it be looking for the perfect patio spot to sip a prohibition-era martini with friends, exploring local flea markets for steampunk or art-deco finds, or checking out outdoor festivals that celebrate veg, green, and holistic living. Having been vegan for 15 years, it's easy being green, but my hippie-girl side is more in sentiment rather than style. Let's just say I may tempt you with my delectable vegan cooking wizardry skills while drinking kombucha, but will do so with a twist. I can also be found at times literally twisting on the dance floor as I have been swing dancing (lindy hop) on and off for a number of years. If dancing is not your thing, don't worry, I won't drag you on the dance floor, but if you find yourself in my story, I can promise that you may find a kitchen dance (or two) is in your next chapter.

I'm a vegan, bi-lingual, a techie, & a musician.
I'm super friendly, smile a lot, and always do my best to find the positive side of a situation.

I do not have children, and I'm not intrested in getting them, but there was no clear "No Children" option.
I don't have a problem with children, many of my friends have them, and I get along with them fine. I just don't have any intrest in raising any. 

I enjoy going to the movies when its possible, but I also enjoy a night in, either curled up watching a movie, playing a friendly board game, or just simply getting to know eachother better.

I'm a slow reader, except if the book is really really good, I've read several genres and different authors, and have favorites, but I don't have a specific author whom I adore like most of my least not yet :)

Oh and I think "The Alchemist" is crap!! &  J.R.R. Tolken just frustrates the hell out of me.
Just sayin!

As I mentioned I'm a musician, so naturally I listen to a lot of music, local and international. I have not heard anything on the Radio for a while (3+ years) due to having an Aux Port in my car stereo, and a bunch of CDs in the glove compartment, which I would change out every once in a while

I don't drink, so I'm not a "bar" person, I only go if I have a gig in one.
I'm also NOT a big sports fan, if you are, that is perfectly fine..I will encourage you to root for your favorite team..I just won't be any help if you need the latest stastics :)

I do have tattoos and planning on getting more in the future, just so you know.
I can't think of anything else to write, but if you have any questions, then please feel free to ask :)

John here. I am a liberal, creative free-spirit who likes to live outside the 'box'. I work as a picture framer so I can be around art and photography and a seasonal gardener, and landscape designer so I can be out in 'mother earth'. I love to travel.

I like art/crafts; all kinds of games; music: singing, playing instruments, listening to many genres such as folk, spiritual, classical, new age, beatles, celtic, native american, choral, swing, campfire, renaissance...; museums; art galleries; concerts; massage; movies-esp. cuddling up at home; cooking; flea markets; peace dances; intentional community gatherings; country living; universal spirituality; hiking/biking; train travel; would like to try rv camping; romantic stuff; kittens/puppies; celebrating the moment and spending quality time with friends. Life is what is created in the art of the moment.

I never know what to say.


I'm looking for someone who recognizes that animals' feelings count like ours do. If you're compassionate to animals, you should be toward people as well. I do get exasperated with people’s willingly stupidity and disheartened with their cruelty. I’m an environmentalist but of a scientific bent. I’m an agnostic.Ask me anything you want.
