Raw food diet.

I am originally from PA but relocated to VA after college graduation for a job. I have been a vegan, mostly raw/living foods, for about 3 years now. I love fruit, especially smoothies and banana whips :) I absolutley love practicing and learning about yoga and recently earned my certification as a yoga instructor. I love being outside in the sunshine and reading a book in my downtime.

Living in Alexandria, Virginia
Raw food diet.

Late Bloomer in many ways...well I am a little of many things. I am in introvert but I can entertain a crowd pretty well actually. I can make you laugh-I am a quick thinker. I am masculine energy/initiator so in that vein I am better matched up with a feminine energy feeling/sensual type whose feelings I can cherish above my own while I work on being a good decider of what I need to do. Quick facts:I like comedies on tv probably too much. I enjoy conversation and ideas. I have big plans that are all in my head about how to help a lot of people someday. I am trying to act on those a little here and there. I like drums and rock and roll very much and have quite a passion for music and dance. I feel kind of nauseated when i see the way animals r treated at the meathouses. I am a believer in financial literacy & I see a lot of pain in the world from ignoring the facts about money. PLZ DON'T ONLY PUSH THE FAVORITE BUTTON! Because it will be anonymous and I won't know who you are UNLESS YOU WINK AT ME!! SO GO AHEAD & WINK PLEASE!


Lauren, a  Veggie/vegan in Fairfax Lauren
is a 24 year old, spiritual female.
Living in Fairfax, Virginia
Veggie/vegan diet.

I am a vegetarian, who loves to cook, organic garden, and follow a green lifestyle. I am spiritual but not religious, and enjoy practicing mindfulness. I spend much of my free time volunteering with animal rescue organizations and it is important to me that my partner enjoy volunteering and working with animals. I love being outside in nature, whether walking my dog through the woods, hiking, or simply digging in my garden. Traveling is important to me-I especially love western Europe, and the American west.  I hope to live in a tiny home one day, with lots of property and wildlife to enjoy. 

 


Sydney, a  Vegan in Centreville Sydney
is a 61 year old, Jewish female.
Living in Centreville, Virginia
Vegan diet.

Lioness looking for lion tamer. Very independent. Love life, life, family, friends, career, driving with the top down, nights by the fireplace with hot chocolate, wildlife habitats, beaches, concerts, travel, trying to help make the world a better place and much more. I also enjoy learning about the various aspects of Judaism, particularly those that are mystical in nature.

I'm currently phasing out of a long and lucrative executive level career in the  real estate development field with the goal of locating a position with a non-profit organization focused on animal or environmental conservation. I also volunteer as the President of a non-profit wildlife rehabilitation organization. Although goal-oriented, I have no problem relaxing and would be just as happy growing my own fruit and vegetables on a farm surrounded by animals.

I would love to travel more, although I've learned that it's not so much about the place you visit but the experiences you have when you're there. Being in on Bulli Beach outside of Sydney where you can reach up and touch the moon, Tangalooma where wild dolphins eat fish from your hand, the feeling of peace in the Garden of Versailles with the sun beating down on your face, eating at the falafel shop on the top of the hill in Tzfat.  Places I plan to visit include Belize and the Galapagos to dive, Africa for gorilla trekking.

I am health-conscious, compassionate and an ethical vegan. I believe that all beings have the right to their own existence, and that kindness, strength of character and compassion are some of the most important attributes that a person can have. 


aikijw, a  Vegetarian in Arlington aikijw
is a 48 year old, Buddhist male.
Living in Arlington, Virginia
Vegetarian diet.

I enjoy a wide variety of mostly outdoor activities (camping, hiking, biking, SCUBA, sailing, etc), and am also very satisfied by sitting in a cafe with a good book and a cup of coffee. A major focus in my life is Aikido. I also study Iaido, and have practiced T'ai Ji (among other things). I am a long term vegetarian. I enjoy cooking (if I don't do it, no one will... :-)), and am becoming quite good at making several varieties of bread (there's nothing quite so good as the smell of bread baking...). I am employed as an Electrical Engineer (my career is mostly focused on space related things), and consider myself lucky to be doing something that I truly enjoy.

I love doing things outdoors. Camping and hiking are two of my favorite activities. I've been riding my bike and exercising more to get in better shape, and very much enjoy riding. I am a vegan as well, and try to minimize any negative impacts in the world. I work for a small company writing software. I am also the system administrator for the company. I like figuring out how things work, but at the same time watching things happen and just marvel at them.

is a 69 year old, spiritual male.
Living in Vienna, Virginia
Vegan diet.

I enjoy walking, attending live theatre (mostly comedy and farce in particular), meditating, taking photographs and videos, visiting and pet animals, exploring zen and other approaches to nonduality, and advocating for veganism and animal rights.  I created two music videos advocating for being vegan and animal rights.  They are on YouTube.  Ask me for the links.  Used to perform music (jazz, swing, standards, rock, blues, folk).  I work full time as a web applications programmer.

Living in Washington, Virginia
Vegan diet.

I am a good natured, vegan, engineer. I have bachelor of science degrees in computer science and electrical engineering. I work as a software developer. I have spent most of my life studying classical guitar and I very much enjoy playing and performing classical, bossa nova, and flamenco. I like scuba diving, alpine skiing, backpacking, learning to fly planes, fencing and martial arts. I very much enjoy sailing and during the summers I am often sailing/racing on the Chesapeake Bay. I do volunteer work by working for animal rights and putting on an occaisional guitar show for a worthy cause.


CvilleEducator, a  Vegan in Charlottesville CvilleEducator
is a 35 year old, spiritual bi-female.
Living in Charlottesville, Virginia
Vegan diet.

I love living in Charlottesville and am grateful to live in such a beautiful and special place. I am fortunate to be surrounded by incredible friends.

I have a son who is the light of my life.

I'm passionate about my work. It is an honor to teach and love people's children-- their most precious gifts. I love the creative challenge that teaching provides, and I love that the kiddos teach me to see the world in a different light.

I thrive on intellectual conversation; at the same time, I enjoy jokes with sexual innuendos. I think an exquisitely-written book is like a high-quality piece of chocolate.

I enjoy hiking, listening to live music, and watching basketball. My favorite local spots include Cafe Cubano, Revolutionary Soup, Sticks, and any place that serves Shenandoah Joe coffee.

I'm looking for someone to relax with at the end of the day while watching comedies and telling inappropriate jokes. :)

Favorite books: Right now I'm rereading While Oleander by Janet Fitch and In the Beauty of the Lilies by John Updike. I've read a good bit of Anna Quindlen's work. I love the Divergent series. The Hunger Games is also at the top of my list of favorite books. In many ways, the United States' relationships with the countries that supply our goods mirrors the Capitol's relationship with the rest of Panem. I also really enjoy nonfiction.

TV Shows: The Big Bang Theory, The Daily Show, Reno 911, Battlestar Galactica

Movies: But I'm a Cheerleader, Saved, Borat, Jackass, anything post-apocalyptic

Music: I like to listen to Christine Lavin, the Reformed Whores, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Sarah McLachlan, Billy Joel, Dido, Jewel, classic rock, soft rock, and anything that makes me want to dance!

Food: Italian, Mexican, and anything that involves pasta and Daiya "cheese!"

Toby, a  Almost veg in  Roanoke Toby

I am deaf woman. I use sign language as communication method. I can read lips too. I also can write paper as another way to communicate with people.


Aislyn, a  Vegan in Woodbridge Aislyn
is a 42 year old, Agnostic / not religious female.
Living in Woodbridge, Virginia
Vegan diet.

I'm an outgoing, friendly, and an animal lover. I love going to the beach, movies, spending time with friends, meeting new people, among other things. I spend most of my time with animals. One reason is because I work at an animal hospital and the other reason is because I have 3 goofy dogs at home. I'm new to online dating, so I'm not sure what else to say about myself. But, I love meeting new people, so feel free to contact me. 


Friendly Freak, a  Almost veg in Richmond Friendly Freak
is a 47 year old, spiritual male.
Living in Richmond, Virginia
Almost veg diet.

Short version: I love God, making music, writing, practicing kung fu and Tantra, giving massage, making love with my soul mate, spending time together doing whatever we like, talking and sharing our selves and lives.

Long version: Hi there, beautiful soul – who are you? I'm in the middle of a life-long quest to know and love, ever more deeply, the source of this amazing, brutal and beautiful living universe – God. I'm looking to meet others to love, learn from and share the journey with, as friends or more.

I'm a massage therapist, because it's a decent living and I enjoy helping people feel good, relax and relieve pain/stress. I practice Ving Tsun kung fu, and plan to begin teaching the system by Summer 2016. I can work most anywhere, and would relocate for love. 

Sometimes I make and record psychedaelic industrial punk roots rock music, and I also like to express myself through writing and speaking; I'm nearing completion of an album and blog project that I'll release and promote independently. 

I pray and meditate, and recently began practicing Tantra for spiritual growth and to be a better lover. I also enjoy running, yoga, hiking, swimming and exercise in general.

I love to laugh and make others laugh. If I find you attractive and/or I like you – and if you like my attention –  I'll listen to, flirt with, tease and compliment you. I love eye-gazing, I'd like to see the universe through those windows to your soul.

I like to research and discuss: reality, truth, justice, this universe, technological evolution, the future, nature, life, love, sex, health, fitness, exercise, nutrition, God, religion, history, deep state politics/actors/events, society and non-violent ways to create a more just and sustainable society. 

I strive to base my beliefs, words and actions on credible evidence, logical argument and/or humane values, and I appreciate having my views and character tested for integrity, the way a good woman tests a man. 

I've been a veggie-loving omnivore and sometimes vegetarian for most of my adult life. Since 2011 I've been mostly vegan, to reduce animal suffering and environmental degradation, boycott animal-exploitation industry, and improve my health and karma. I admire and respect those who devote their time and energy to creating a more just and sustainable society, and I support various causes in various ways.

I won't lie to you. I've never cheated and monogamy is fine, if it's what you want and we love and want to be with each other. However, I'm an open-minded freak, and I find those qualities interesting in others. 

I have tattoos, including one on my hand, and some ugly scars on my torso; for art, and from getting stabbed and then operated on.

TrueEssene, a  Veggie/vegan in South Boston TrueEssene
is a 57 year old, spiritual male.
Living in South Boston, Virginia
Veggie/vegan diet.

Just a simple, Southern Gentleman. My path, best described as an Essene and I love it. I love the country, not the fake gated community type. The real deal. Where you hear bobcats at mating season. You can hear the call of foxes. The hooting of my favorite animal. The smell of horses early in the morning before a long ride makes me giddy! As you can tell, I prefer the real country to the city. I love the beach, but prefer to live near the mountains. Please, I'm not a total barbarian. I do love what city life has to offer - customers and clients, lol, just kidding, I think, hmmmm!! As a footnote, I may have a very eclectic education, capable of doing a variety of things very well, one thing I can not do, Read Minds. So please, contacting a gentleman first is OK. Kinda sweet, flattering to be honest. Even a Southern Gentleman enjoys a little flattering!

Since first signing up, I've moved back to the rural county I grew up in. I'm starting my dream company now that I'm semi-retired, too young to be fully retired lol, a farm and land management company. So, I'd be real pressed to move, maybe to New Zealand, Bolivia, Italy... So, where I am is 1.5 hours to Raleigh, NC and Richmond,Va. Plus it is 1 hour away from the Blue Ridge and 2 or so hours to the beach. There are black bears, foxes, owls and things I have yet to see. Join me in this adventure, share it with an honest, down to earth gentleman, who has been a fancy farmer for nearly thirty years of my life. It's comfortable and you get to work with a lot of great farmers....

I love: love coffee, teas of all kind, horses, kayaking, creating bonsai, big dogs, freshly tilled earth smell early in the morning,the site of a newly harvested field, kids laughing, looking down on the clouds while flying or flying into the sunset, watching it from the air as we go to somewhere new, anything else: ask...if you're really ready for the honest answer: happens that way with an honest man... 

ps. I've been a vegetarian for 28 yrs now. Before that, I went from a diet with no limits, to a Kosher(biblical diet) for almost 7 yrs, then the move...haven't eaten pork since 1977 when I looked at a raw slice under the microscope, I still shiver...


connie, a  Vegan in pearisburg connie

Vegan diet.

I am a happy, independent person who enjoys life. I like to travel & also enjoy the simple pleasures of life such as appreciating the natural beauty that surrounds us every day. I have an animal sanctuary where I have several rescued animals.


Rosalye, a  Veggie/vegan in Williamsburg Rosalye
is a 35 year old, spiritual female.
Living in Williamsburg, Virginia
Veggie/vegan diet.

I like adventures, but not in a motorcycle-without-a-helmet kind of way.Friends have described me as kind/caring, loyal, deep, mysterious, and an "old soul." I would add curious to that list. I think life can be interesting and people are fascinating, but you can only discover this by getting off your butt and out the door. You have to peer under rocks and around corners or it all can become a mundane blur. I moved to Williamsburg from Boston about a year ago, without knowing anyone here. Can you tell I don't do much of anything in a traditional way? Surprisingly, I still manage to fit in with mainstream America. 

I have a 9-to-5er job working with people, but ultimately I identify as an artist and storyteller. I write, read, make jewelry, and sew clothes in my free time. I like to go to museums, lectures, film festivals, and I love the beach and being on or near water. I take yoga and dance classes. I also have 2 rescued pets, a dog and a cat, so it's important that you like both.

I'm independent-minded and like to write my own rules. I question "doing what you're supposed to" and have been researching tiny houses and minimalism for a few years. I fantasize about backpacking the globe or homesteading, but one feels too unrooted while the other feels too confined.  I've had the same career for 11 years now and am thinking about what I want to do next.  I might start my own business doing something similar or change gears entirely. This might make me sound flakey, but it's just that I can feel it in my bones that I'm on the verge of a new chapter in my life. Maybe you'll be part of it? Either way, I'm gonna  enjoy figuring it all out. To that point, I can entertain myself quite well, but it'd be great to find someone who also  is crafting their own path so we can compare notes and talk about what it all means... or just what made us laugh today ...


Mark, a  Vegan in Lynchburg Mark
is a 44 year old, male.
Living in Lynchburg, Virginia
Vegan diet.

I sail the Chesapeake Bay as much as I can. While I work in mental health, I graduated from William and Mary with a concentration in studio art and even gave an MFA program a try before realizing I had no interest in what it would take to be a successful artist -- self-promotion, a strong ego, belief that one can do better than Mother Nature. I have found working on boats satisfies creative impulses and is a practical application of sculpture techniques, so now I have a yard full of boats in various states of repair. Just prior to this job in mental health, which I've held for over 7 years (and hope to for only 8 more), I was in India completely focused on yoga. I still have a house there and will likely use it as a winter base to sail once retired. 


Dhanraj, a  Vegetarian in Herndon Dhanraj
is a 31 year old, Hindu male.
Living in Herndon, Virginia
Vegetarian diet.

Okay, so here it goes, I am from India and moved to US in 2010. I like to travel; visiting and learning about different cultures. I believe we human are more alike than different. Anyways that was little philosophical. BTW I like getting philosophical some time and engage in chats like what is life, why we do what we do etc. I am sure you might have given such thought sometime.. if you have then I am sure I wont let you down if we meet :-)

I have simple life style, un-complicated by nature, and fond of healthy living through good diet and good workout. I am kind of guy who likes reading hardcover books, I am kind of guy who knows chemistry behind various spices and love cooking his own food, I am kind of guy who wont hesitate helping a person in need, I am kind of guy who day dreams and fights hard to realize them, I am kind of guy who cannot withstand in justice, I am kind of guy who believes there is always a story behind what we are and how we are. 

I am professionally very ambitious and at same time spiritual towards the way I live my life. I meditate and at times go into solitude to align myself and my thoughts.

I find solace in Sufi and Indian Classical music and when I am driving classic progressive rock music.

Mitch, a  Vegetarian in Norfolk Mitch
is a 49 year old, spiritual male.
Living in Norfolk, Virginia
Vegetarian diet.

I'm on this site because I'd really like to date people with similar beliefs.  I am a veg mostly because of the cruel factory farming system.  I have several rescue animals.  

I am a nice, fun, funny, witty, complex, intelligent, passionate, compassionate, easy-going, person without any mental or drug & alcohol problems.  I am completely happy with myself and don't need anyone in my life but am looking for a companion to share life with.  I have a good job and a house.  

I try to work out, practice yoga and meditation every day.  I am fit and weigh 140 pounds.  I love music and going to concerts and am a part time dj.  I also love movies, books (although I rarely read), riding bikes, traveling and spending time with friends and extended family.  I'm an entertainment sponge and am willing to try almost anything and believe it's not always what you do, but who you are with that matters.  

I look really young and people think i'm around 30.  I bet I can make you laugh.  I still have dreams...

A little about me... Hey, please don't judge a book by its cover or lack thereof. I am interesting, funny, and handsome, oh, and I am employed LOL! I do have photos but we'll get 2 that...I don't drink, smoke, or do drugs of any kind. I'm not a thug or a bad boy so if that's what you're looking for I'm not for you. But I do know how to protect and defend the ones I love very well :) oh, I'm also a vegetarian but I don't mind if you're not if you don't mind that I am. And last but not least I do love God and I'm trying to get to know Him better everyday! :)

Vegan for about four years, vegetarian for a few years before that. In it for the animals, environment, and my health!

I manage a vegan restuarant which takes up a lot of my time but is some of the most fulfilling work I've ever done. When I'm not working I enjoy snowboarding and generally being active. I am a big fan of music and play a couple insturments as well.

I am a recent transplant to the area (moved for work) and travel to Chicago and Minnesota fairly frequently to visit family and friends. Would love to meet like minded people nearby!

 


Kartik, a  Veggie/vegan in Charlottesville Kartik
is a 43 year old, Agnostic / not religious male.
Living in Charlottesville, Virginia
Veggie/vegan diet.

I am an astronomer working at Caltech -- my research interests are mostly in the field of galaxy formation and evolution. I absolutely love what I do but often feel that the secret reason for my professional choice is because it allows me to travel the world and explore :) My only remaining continent is Antartica :) In the past year I was in India, Tibet, China and Ecuador ;) I have been a veggie all my life and now nearly vegan. My other passion besides exploring and world (and the Universe), is social justice / public service. I believe that we can and should leave the planet a better place than we found it. I spend a significant amount of time doing volunteer work - as a violence prevention specialist for a peace organization and in various capacities for my undergrad alma matter and for the community (in regards to some environmental / eco- issues). For fun - besides all my travels, I love to just be outdoors, play sports, see movies, have dinners with friends - all the usual stuff I guess :)


harry_iam, a  Veggie/vegan in Ashburn harry_iam
is a 46 year old, spiritual male.
Living in Ashburn, Virginia
Veggie/vegan diet.

Unique about me: I aspire for enlightenment in this lifetime, fully knowing that enlightenment cannot be had by the personal self (ego), because it requires the dissolution of the ego. That's the paradox! Statistically, only one in 10 million people even desire such pure spirituality, which is way beyond the domain of religion.

Description: A spiritually mature and committed seeker of Truth, a man of wisdom/knowledge, yet fun, joyful, reasonably intelligent, insightful, intuitive, maverick - out of the Indian traditional box, original thinker - assimilator/integrator of apparently diverse knowledge, friendly, growing more in compassion, value emotional intelligence and deeper communication, a strong balanced person, inner strength, adventurous spirit, done outdoorsy and adventure sports, find humor in living itself, funny/silly/naughty too. Lived in a few countries and various US cities, traveled to 35-40 countries for professional business and pleasure, a global citizen, yet am a simple, open soul at heart and want to keep and grow the innocence. Well established in an integrated understanding and practice of spiritual Knowledge and Wisdom acquired through years of research and reading (over 200 books from different enlightened masters and diverse traditions and scientific material on Consciousness), living practice, contemplation, advanced long meditation retreats and courses, as well as teaching and supporting spiritual growth of others as part of a global spiritual organization.

Love and Blessings for you to maintain 'Inner Stillness' on this amazing, messy and transformative journey called Life! ( Even in the Bible: Be Still, and Know 'I AM' God).(India: I AM That)....
All knowledge from all spiritual masters/traditions point to the same Truth .... of 'One Consciousness'. It is our little, divisive mind that splits things up, compares and creates conflicts. The underlying reality is 'Oneness', but it takes a special, developed insight to see this. This takes work and time.  

The Way: Skillfully transcend, and the rest of worldly activities/interests/identifications/pursuits/ career/desires/relations/growths fall in their appropriate place without causing too much angst! Requires living the opposites, e.g. outward 'passion' in worldly activities and living life fully, and inner 'dispassion' of transcending the world (not to be so caught up). Sounds interesting? It is demanding ... but fun, deeply joyful and most fulfilling!  

Physically: Am 5' 6", yoga-toned, reasonably attractive, youngish looks, modern professionally smart, intelligent looks - no frills, tattoos. :-)

My intelligent 12 year old, quite mature for his age, is mostly with his mom. But he still needs a father-friend for guidance and love during the 10% visitation time.

I am a vegetarian and do not drink alcohol due to my spiritual and ethical interests (not religious indoctrination; was never religious). I have not always been so, and am not rigid about anyone having to follow my regime, but do encourage more vegetarianism and reducing alcohol to elevate one's consciousness level.

Bob, a  Vegan in Buckingham Bob
is a 67 year old, spiritual male.
Living in Buckingham, Virginia
Vegan diet.

i'm a Reiki Master and Master Herbalist, I've studied Shiatsu, Yoga, Body Electronics,I Ching,12 steps, and my new love which i wish i had found years ago is permaculture and am currently working on a food forest and keyline type restructuring of my 30 acres. and the update on that is that i have completed my PDC (permaculture design certificate) ---although the course is really just an orientation into all the learning and work that is waiting

 

but in true permaculture fashion, if you're not having fun, you've got the design wrong

 Tantra/karma yoga best describes my current spiritual practice with a healthy dose of Christian forgiveness and non judgement

 I play at the piano, fiddle around (Old time,bluegrass), do some contra and cajun dance, and am developing an alternative energy lifestyle. i'm living off the grid using wind and solar for electricity, wood/solar for hot water and heat. i bought 30 clear cut acres near yogaville, va 13 years ago, and this land has captured me. nice creek, rolling hills, and a growing forest provides privacy,quiet and wonderful night skies. I have high hopes and lots of projects for this "estate", make it something the next generations will be grateful for,

 

oh, my rocket stove is up and running--actually , the update on that is the rocket stove did so well last winter, that i plan to increase the capacity, so it's only burning two hrs a day instead of four. I also was able to hook up hot water to the stove system, and have plans to make it much more automatic and fail safe.

 

for me  getting to know one peace of land really well beats living out of trains, planes and automobiles

 

I can enjoy anyplace i find myself and did snowbird for a while before i became aware of global warming, but now i definitely value all the time i get to spend outside of infernal combustion engines

 I really enjoy my life, i laugh at myself as i stumble around and marvel at the perfect grace that occasionally inspires me, although really it's all divine, just another day in paradise


outdoorsy1954, a  Veggie/vegan in Arlington outdoorsy1954
is a 61 year old, spiritual male.
Living in Arlington, Virginia
Veggie/vegan diet.

I seek a lover who is also my best friend. I aspire to seek truth, be honest, and to live the golden rule. I believe nature is to be revered and not conquered, that the current division of the planet between human and nonhuman habitats is badly out of balance, that people should be held responsible for themselves. Aside from being unconventional, I’m articulate, well mannered, affectionate, very tactile. I value simple living--I live 30 minutes from work (walk to metro), I bike 5 minutes to and from the gym in the morning, and I do errands on foot whenever possible. I enjoy vigorous daily exercise, hiking (day hikes & serious backpacks), bicycling (usually 30-50 miles), listening to music (mostly acoustical, but rock too), reading (mostly history and philosophy), movies at home, home maintenance projects, gardening, my cat, travel. I’m a bit of a loner, lately more than I’d like to admit. With regard to religion, I don’t pretend to know much. My intuition tells me that life has meaning that transcends the self and humankind.

Veggie/vegan diet.

I'm a recovering workaholic, a creative couch potato, curious, responsive and informal. A professional musician, I play a bunch of different string instruments on early and traditional music, write articles, produce recordings, arrange music. My big thing these days is devising early music scores for silent films. I like movies and theater, speaking French, esoteric healing, yoga, drawing on the walls, music improvisation, old radio sound effects, cooking. My ADD is well-controlled, mostly manifesting as hyperfocus. I find reading wonderfuflly overstimulating, and usually fall asleep to episodes of The West Wing.

Hi

I've been a vegan for about 2 years.  I enjoy working out (mostly calisthenics and a bit of running), spending time outdoors, playing soccer, listening to music (anything from bob marley to led zeppelin as long as it sounds good), spending time with family and friends and generally just having fun.  

I'm currently in school studying nursing and I'll be done within a few semesters. I'm always interested in the latest research related to health and when I'm not busy studying I'm often on pubmed or nutritionfacts.org looking up information. 

I also enjoy learning about other cultures and languages.  When I was younger playing soccer I got travel to Barcelona, Spain.  I fell in love with the city and picked up a bit of spanish will there.  When I have the time I try my best to improve on it.  Later I plan on learning more French and perhaps German.   Traveling as a youngster sparked my interest in other cultures. When I am able I would like to travel as much as possible and it would be great to have a travel partner to do it with.

I've always been very health-conscious and active, but going vegan in July of 2013 has allowed me to see the world in  different light. I've realized it only makes sense to date a fellow plant-based individual that understands my beliefs and thought process now. I love cooking, working out, blogging, spending time outdoors, hanging with my friends and family and taking care of myself.

I am passionate about my family and friends. I am happy with what I have accomplished in my life, but always strive to improve myself. I am curious by nature and am always up for trying new things or the next adventure. I love to travel and have been fortunate enough to have done quite a bit of it... 40 countries so far and counting... I also love to cook (and by default, eat!) and experiment with vegetarian/vegan recipes. A great weekend for me would probably involve hanging out with friends with good conversation (even the occasional good argument) and good wine, discovering a new dive restaurant or a new band, getting into a really good book, or just walking around getting lost in a new city. Personality-wise, I'm a pretty easy going person who likes to laugh and enjoy what life has to offer. My friends would probably say I'm sincere, outgoing, and down-to-earth. I work as an engineer for an aerospace company doing something I find interesting and challenging.

Just heard about this site and registerd so I could search profiles. I have not joined yet so I cannot respond unless you provide additional contact info. There are so many dating sites and unfortunately this site very few members locally. 

I am passionate about helping animals, children, and the elderly, and I am in the process of starting up a nonprofit organization. Our first fundraiser is a music video featuring original performances by You Tube's most famous pets, and the song will be available for download for 99 cents.

I've been a vegetarian since I was in my early twenties.

Hey! I’m 27 years old. I'm shy and quiet to start with but once I get to know you I can be quite talkative. I have a very open personality and honesty is a big thing with me. I'm a very caring person and I love animals. I love to laugh so having a good sense of humor is a must. I can be very witty and sarcastic at times, but that's just who I am. I love getting lost in a good book, fantasy is my favorite genre; David Eddings, Mercedes Lackey, and J. K. Rowling are amazing. Movies are a passion of mine and I have an ever growing collection. Music is something I can't live without in my life. I listen mostly to rock, alternative, metal, emo and the occasional country song. I have three tattoos; one of a phoenix on my right shoulder, a gryphon of my left shoulder and on my upper back I have my Scottish crest with an Irish knot dangling off it. I plan on getting more in the future. I love roller coasters and have a passion for cooking. 

Honestly, I'm looking for a good man, not a boy. I want a best friend that I can confide in and cuddle with after a bad day (or just in general). He needs to be open emotionally and not afraid of commitment. He should be sweet, caring, loyal and trustworthy. I'd like a guy that at least tries to be romantic occasionally (you do get points just for trying^^).

I would consider myself a kind, personable, intelligent individual. I have been a vegetarian for three years and I currently eat vegan at home. I am interested in learning more about healthy living and engaging more in environmental activism. I'm hoping to meet other like-minded people and to find a man who shares similar values. My favorite things include books, travel, good conversation, and good wine.

Well hello! Thanks for visiting my page. (: My name is Ashley and I am a 23 year old pescatatrian. I'm a nanny right now in Fredericksburg, Va. I am a pretty simple gal. I enjoy hanging out and having a few beers, video games, photography, cuddling up watching netflix, going on little adventures, museums, hiking... I'll tell you more if you're still interested. I don't mean to ramble! I'm a pretty blunt person. I tell it like it is. But I'm also kind hearted and possibly the sweetest person you'll ever meet. That sounds so conceited. I'm often told that I'm "too nice."  (I'm really bad at talking about myself when directed to do so. I always feel like I'm not giving the right information.) I'm pretty bubbly and I love to laugh. I enjoy punk rock music, anything acoustic, some metal, classic rock, and some elextronic. I love going to hear bands play. Live music is always enjoyable. i honestly don't know what else to say, but if you've read this far.. You should ask me some questions!! (: hope to hear from you!


Wraithion, a  Vegetarian in  Fairfax Wraithion

My name is James but also go by Wraith for my close friends.  I have been a vegetarian for 8 years now and currently looking for other people who share the same types of habits that I do.  I am a pastry chef who has studied at the Culinary Institute of America, the Culinary Institute of Switzerland and in Dubai, neededless to say I like to travel.  I have hit most of Europe and look to hit Asia next, my favorite city would have to be Prague.  I love going to Europe because it feels so old and the history seeps through the mortar.  I also listen to a particular type of european dance music called Hardstyle which isnt very prevelant in the states yet.  It is nothing like the music in the states and I use the beat to keep me light on my feet as I run.

I am very much into physical fitness having run my first full marathon in Dubai. I really enjoy the mountains, hiking through green trees or skiing through in the winter.  I enjoy wandering with no set destination and seeing where the path may lead.  I hope to do more running and races in the future no matter where I may be.

One of my other hobbies include reading classics of literature from Walden and Metamorphosis to 1984 and 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.  One can only learn by two methods: 1) From someone smarter and 2) From books.  I have a fascination with other ideas and trains of thought that I feel only make me better as a person.  Even books such as The Lorax have powerful messages to teach for those whom are willing to listen.

I absolutely love animals, part of the reason why I am a vegetarian, because I hold roughly all life equal and do not believe subjecting other beings to maltreatment is ever the right answer.  I have a big place in my heart for dogs, and not just any dogs, but big dogs that you can play and wrestle with.  A dog is one of the few animals that if you act like a fool, they will as well. 

I am very spiritual however not religious per say.  Spirituality is your own belief system coming out of your own experiences, religion is someone else's belief system.  I believe as soon as you say "I am a/an X" that you put up blinders and see the world through different tinted glasses.  I am very pagan in some cases and see all the life of inanimate objects with spirit that grow as we grow and pain as they suffer.  The trees are my greatest friends because of everything that they have seen and what they can help us learn.  We only have one planet, we need to treat it with respect.

I really wish I could have someone write this for me. I am bias, so of course im going to say I am pretty much the best guy ever. Truth is, I am just a normal down to earth guy stuck in a weird dichotomy of being a veggie/vegan health nut who loves to have a good time and go out on weekends. Yes, its weird, I know.

Other than that, I am graphic designer who enjoys art of all kinds, from listening to a good live band, to checking out art museams. I also love the outdoors, sports of all kinds and trying new things. Life is too short to be boring.

Sarah_326, a  Vegan in Alexandria Sarah_326
is a 32 year old, female.
Living in Alexandria, Virginia
Vegan diet.

I love all animals; they're the reason I went vegetarian. I've spent many years volunteering at animal shelters, and I like to go to peaceful animal rights protests.

I'm very open and a good listener; people often feel invited to share things with me. I'm not interested in someone flashy who's out to impress everyone; I'm down to earth and am really attracted to men who are similarly real and honest.

I love reading and always want to know more about things. This also means that sometimes I learn something that changes my mind about an issue. I think it's important to be able to change your mind when you get new information, and not to cling to an idea just for the sake of consistency or because you're afraid to look like you don't have it all figured out.

I like to think that I have a really good sense of humor - life is hard and being able to be goofy is important! The best part of the rocky parts is being able to playfully make fun of yourself and joke about things. I'm not saying I'm a ray of sunshine all of the time - and people who constantly are tend to annoy me because it seems fake - but I always try to keep my sense of humor handy. I also think one of the best parts of a relationship is the ability to tease each other. Make me laugh, including at myself, and we'll be great. On the comedic front, one of my favorite movies is What About Bob?, and I love Louis CK and Steve Martin. I will also watch Stepbrothers anytime it's on TV; I cannot help myself.

I love socializing with friends and meeting new people, but I also appreciate and need a some "downtime" here and there. Personality tests always land me right on the border between introvert and extrovert, and I think that's pretty accurate. I can enjoy a night out with a big group of people now and then, but what's more important to me ultimately is a good group of close friends.

When I'm not working, I enjoy: trying new things, dinner/drinks with friends, watching movies (I still think the first few seconds of a new movie, sitting in anticipation in a dark & quiet theater, are magical), hiking/being outside (having some green and warmth/sunlight in my day is key), volunteering, working out (I suck at running but I like it and keep doing it!), reading, working on my balcony vegetable garden, and cuddling with my cat, Honey.

When I am working: I'm the HR Manager at a healthcare facility in Northern VA, but this isn't what I want to do forever. I have thought many times over the years about maybe someday becoming a therapist....we'll see!

I'm eternally curious, active.  I am slowing down though; I mediate and sit on the couch and read much more than I used to.  I enjoy crossword puzzles, reading the Post and New York times, listening to NPR.  I work, walk, hike, dance, am a potter, and enjoy my friends.  I love living in the metro area after being in Florida for years.  I enjoy the seasons, and especially the hills, dirt (!) and architecture.  It's great having the Potomac so close to my house - I don't kayak that often, but it's beautiful to see.

I talke care of horses and other animals for a living.  I'm an avid reader, especialy of philosophy and classic litterature and although I am agnostic/athiest I am interested in comparative religion.   I write poetry every morning for at least a couple hours sometimes more and I have been published in some journals although nothing prestiious.  My favorite novelist is William Faulkner, poet,  Dylan Thomas, and philosophers Camus and Nietshe.  I'm not sure I have a specific type,  I guess inteligence in a person is important to me and not just someone with a high IQ but someone who is reflective and has wisdom.  There are many bright people in the world but not nearly as many who are  actually inteligent.  I look forward to getting to know you.  Because I'm not subscribed I can't message someone unless they messge me first other wise all I can di is wink.

I've been vegan since I was 15 after reading books like Animal Liberation.  I now work full time as a director of a very large animal welfare organization.  I love it.  It would be great to meet someone who is also passionate about compassion.  Other things I enjoy - kayaking, hiking, working out, lounging around with nothing to do, traveling, veggie food searches, and cooking.  I love being silly and laughing a lot!

I appreciate it when I meet someone and we are able to have meaningful, free-flowing conversation... where we're both comfortable enough to be ourselves, and I leave feeling as though I truly got to know the essence of the person I just talked to.

Search my purse & you’ll always pull out a book. I just finished reading “The Alchemist” by Paulo Coelho.  I read it again after devouring it 6 years ago, but felt like I was reading it for the first time.  Love it when that happens! I'm now reading "The Aleph".

Thanksgiving Day is my favorite holiday (people tend to volunteer more & they are kinder to each other) plus, we all tend to be in a state of gratitude and focused on what we have vs. what we don’t have…(if only EVERY day could be Thanksgiving:)

I just moved to the DC area, and I work from home. So I like to take full advantage of my weekends to get out and about, meet new people, and explore different neighborhoods.

Fall is my favorite time of the year!  There's so much to enjoy: festivals, crisp weather, foilage, being able to sip a cup of tea while sitting on a park bench, hiking, or just strolling around the city taking in the sites.

I have a Shih-Tzu named Kai, and although he is 9 years old, he is still a puppy at heart.  We have been going to this park nearby for long walks, and I don't know who enjoys this more, me or him!

Travel is a passion of mine (I get to do some travel for work and that keeps my wanderlust in check). My goal is to visit all man-made seven wonders by the end of 2015. I have 2 down (Machu-Pichu & Chichen-Itza) only 5 to go! Next on the list...India's Taj Mahal. Care to join me?

To be clear the children I have are four legged Cool I look forward to giving birth when the time comes but either way I care for all living beings equally with Unconditional Love. Equality suggests that all living beings have the innate right to live their natural life free & happy. Its unconditional just as love. Love is an action you either love something or you don't. I am a vegan because I want animals to live their natural life free of suffering. I prefer them to be living than Tortured, Raped, Kidnapped & slaughtered. In 2006 while soul searching looking for where I lost my happiness as a human found that it was lost the day I participated in the slaughter of my friends. At about age 6 when I found out where milk, meat & eggs came from took a stand that I didn't want to eat my friends but didn't have the courage to stand strong and eventually was conditioned to think that was a fact of life. Fortunately I reconditioned myself & no longer pariticipate in such atrocities committed on beautiful innocent beings. I am interested in others who have a moral code that directs them to be Hero's protecting the Defenseless from the Cowards who prey upon them by any means necessary.

It is true that only Saint's can have an accurate and true appraisal of themselves and us with human intelligence be it vast or be it be it not... we are not how we see ourselves FULLY, others can see us better than we can see ourselves.. this is my experience and belief. My point is that what we all write about ourselves here isn't absolute AND the ony way one we can get to know is to meet live and in person.. agreed?

I have decided to be more specific about what I'm looking for (or not looking for, notice my interest's ). From what I have written (below) It may appear that I want to date an Extra Terrestrial but all I truly want is to find a woman with some depth, REAL depth.. 


Still here? Great! read on: 


If you agree that most personal ad's include any of the following phrases, and you are BORED to death by them... please contact me immediately! 

10) "I live life to the fullest!" 

(Is this really the most profound philosophical statement you can come up with? Dig a little deeper, Nietzsche.) 


9) "Loves to laugh" or "Fun-loving" 

(Alright! A person who enjoys laughter and fun. What a rare individual; I must meet her at once. Just once I'd like to see "loves to sob uncontrollably for days on end.") 


8) "I'm ____ years old but I look MUCH younger!" 

(Sure you do. And if I just did a couple more sit-ups, I could still make the Giants starting lineup. Is self-delusion great or what?) 


7) "I'm a down to earth..." 

(If I see this phrase one more time, I'll... I'll... I don't know WHAT I'll do! I might be forced to actually turn off my computer and go interact with people in the REAL world. Okay, I probably wouldn't do anything THAT drastic. But you get the idea.) 


6) "I can go from jeans to a****ail dress in 10 minutes!" 

(You must be very proud. I can't believe they haven't made this an Olympic event yet.) 


5) "I'm a intelegent..." 

(If you can't SPELL intelligent... do you see where I'm going with this? Class? Anyone?) 


4) "I'm a typical (insert astrological sign here)." 

(Astrology? Yeah, it's a science. I think they use it at NASA. I don't even know where to begin here. If you're looking for some insight into the nature of my character, don't ask me what my sign is. Talk to the Easter Bunny, he has the real inside track on me.) 


3) "I don't have a pic, but trust me, you won't be disappointed!" 

(Trust me, I will.) 


2) "Looking for THE ONE" or "Looking for my Soulmate" 

(Really? These are the most fresh and original lines you can come up with? Your mother and I had such high hopes for you. Oh well, there's always trade school.) 


And the Number One Most Overused Phrase In A Personal Ad is... 

1) "Don't worry, I plan to loose [sic] the weight real soon." 

(Ok, it's probably just me, but why am I still worried?) 


Put them all together, and the end result usually looks something like this.... 

"Fun-loving, down-to-earth woman with 5 kids from 5 different fathers seeks a intelegint guy who loves to laugh. Must be in shape! I'm temporarily 50 pounds overweight, but don't worry, I plan to loose the weight right after I finish these fries! Must look like Brad Pitt and be no older than 35! I'm 49 but I look MUCH younger! I don't have a pic, but trust me, you won't be disappointed! I'm a Libra so I live life to the fullest! I get along best with Geminis who have six-figure incomes! Must have a big heart and a bigger house, cuz the landlord just kicked us out!" 

(Well, as long you have realistic expectations.) 

Update: If your photos are not recent and without full body shots (fully clothed please) it's highly likely that I'm not going to respond. I met a woman recently who looked completely different than her photos, finding out they were 2 years old and she weighed 50 lbs MORE, this is bad dating business..  It's not the weight that bothered me but the deceptiveness of it all. 

 

So the real me enjoy's Yoga, Spiritual experiences, VEG FOOD, Nature and more..

I have been a vegetarian since I was in college and have recently been moving toward becoming vegan. I haven't completely made it there because of my love of cookies. LOL. To stay in shape I do yoga, play soccer and have taken up running although I am not very good at the running thing.

I enjoy long talks at dinner parties, red wine, good beer (preferable and IPA), and quiet time. Not a big bar fly, but do like to go out now and then. Love to travel... Favorite country so far is Italy. I Like the ocean and the mountains, definitely like a warm vacation in the winter. Financially responsible with a good credit rating. :) INFP

Divorced in 2001; raising 3 active boys in NoVa (2 in college now, 1 senior in high school)

Work: yup, gotta work to meet my duty and obligations to my boys

Yoga: I love the physical and spiritual aspects and am in teacher training

I love to talk, laugh, walk, yoga, bike, hike, the water; pretty much anything as long as in good company.

 

Looking for ... well, you know, you, if you are good company, which means you laugh and you can carry an intelligent conversation. It really all boils down to that, well, and you smell good (no pressure though).


Phoenix, a  Veggie/vegan in Richmond Phoenix

Veggie/vegan diet.

 I believe in positivity and I am trying to adhere to talking about things I want, not what I don't want. After all, Mother Teresa once said " I will never attend an anti-war rally; if you have a peace rally, invite me. ... that if you focus on what you want, (peace) instead of what you don't want, (war) you will receive it in abundance!" My sentiments exactly. 

 I believe in the law of attraction. Your thoughts are seeds and the harvest you reap will depend on the seeds you plant. Focus on the positive and follow your dreams. As William Jennings Bryan once said "Destiny is no matter of chance. It is a matter of choice. It is not a thing to be waited for, it is a thing to be achieved." " You must make a choice to take a chance or your life will never change." - Author Unknown.

  Are you a positive person or are you always complaining or bemoaning your bad luck? I hope you look for the positive, after all, life is only a reflection of what we allow ourselves to see. Is the glass half empty...or is it half full? I'm hoping that you always seek the positive and believe in dreams coming true.   I do.

my limitations

I am passionate about meditation, yoga, all types of art, music, animals, nature, social issues. I have been a vegetarian for 18 years, i have experimented and gone through phases of different diets: raw, vegan, Ayurvedic, macrobiotic, gluten free, but for now I'm just vegetarian. I love to travel and have gone to many different countries. I have a few different jobs and enjoy my work. Life is good.

Let us fall in love again
and scatter gold dust all over the world.
Let us become a new spring
and feel the breeze drift in heaven’s scent.
Let us dress the earth in green
and like the sap of a young tree
let the grace from within us sustain us.
Let us carve gems out of our stony hearts
and let them light our path to Love.
The glance of Love is crystal clear
and we are blessed by its light.”~Rumi

ABOUT ME: As a person I like to think of myself as confident but not a ****. I'm a very humble man. I understand that there's a time to give and be loving and understanding. I also believe in standing up for what I believe and not being walked on. I'm always there for my friends and loved ones. I don't run from adversity. I care what people think of me because I believe in being the best man I can be. I want people who come across me to think "hey what a cool guy". It's not about attention for me. It's about the importance of ones own honor and respect for those around him. I am not here for a "fling", one night stand or whatever you want to call it, friendship first, but ultimately looking for a serious loving relationship! 

 

GOALS: Looking to find a way into the tattoo business or possibly write a book. At what capacity, I'm not sure yet but I'm exploring many ideas. I really want to find a woman to love and share in the beauty that is life. I also want to continue to help those around me I care for to achieve their goals.

Hello everyone, I've lived in the DC area for the past six years. I love animals, particularly rabbits, and have been a vegetarian for 9 years.  I recently decided to go vegan and so far so good!

My hobbies are reading, writing (fiction), watching TV/movies, going to shows/concerts/musicals, and hiking/walking around outside.  I'm taking a creative writing class every Saturday, which has been great.  

Exercising keeps me tranquil.  I was a competitive weightlifter and boxer, but after several injuries--decided to go the moderate route.  Now I do some weight-training, calisthenics, and walk a lot.   

I love to eat, particularly Japanese, Italian, and Chinese food, but unfortunately, I don't know how to cook.  I burn everything, even rice :(

I work as a diplomat and economist, and generally enjoy it.  I'm originally from Brazil, but spent several years in Switzerland before coming to America (my favorite Eddie Murphy movie too!!!)

I love to tell jokes, mostly pun-based, and sometimes they end up being good! I act outgoing and engaging for work and obligatory social events, but I'm actually quite shy.  

My profile photos show me scowling over a tofu dinner, and then posing with two members of the greatest ABBA tribute band in the world (I love ABBA).

I truley believe juicing saved my life. I did a 60 day juice fast for my health and I have never felt better in my life. I have begun a vegetarian lifestyle now and I'm loving it.

I live in a  small beach town but i prefer the mountains (my favorite place vacationed is Glacier National Park). I enjoy reading,  riding my bike to the beach, traveling to other countries, hiking, spending time with my family when i have the time to visit them, crocheting, cooking, and going on walks with my dog Buddy.

“I can never read all the books I want; I can never be all the people I want and live all the lives I want. I can never train myself in all the skills I want. And why do I want? I want to live and feel all the shades, tones and variations of mental and physical experience possible in life. And I am horribly limited.” -Sylvia Plath

“I am afraid of getting older… I am afraid of getting married. Spare me from cooking three meals a day—spare me from the relentless cage of routine and rote. I want to be free… I want, I want to think, to be omniscient… I think I would like to call myself ‘The girl who wanted to be God.’” -Sylvia Plath


i'm franni. i never know how to describe myself because i don't know exactly what about me is true, but my friends tell me i'm, "opinionated, open-minded, literature nerd, unpredictable, scientific," and a "hippie at heart".

 

also: i'm not actually bisexual; i'm pansexual. bisexual was the closest option.

I actually learned about this website through Victoria Moran's book "Main Street Vegan" and I am very glad I did! I had no idea such a great site existed! I also got to meet her in person and she's terrific.

I recently got my first real legal job, and am very close to getting certified to work as a Guardian ad litem. I have two sweet furry feline friends whom I adore. I am a bit of a movie buff, and know a lot of movie trivia. I also am a polyglot, having studied romance languages most of my life. I like astrology and have been reading a bit about Buddhism recently. I go to the theatre whenever I can. I really like animals and recently took a trip to the Poplar Springs Animal Sanctuary, where I was able to pet a cow for the first time, as well as many other adorable and lovely animals! I'm very excited to meet other vegan/vegetarian-minded people, as most of my friends and family have been a bit weird about it. And lastly, I love to go dancing as long as the place isn't ridiculously loud.

I like to take things apart, improve on them, and put them back together. I like to stand in awe of you. My favorite music is the beat of your heart. I'm caring, laid back, curious about everything, and have a heart of gold. I've been vegan for 12+ years and though I don't try to identify with it as a definition of me I'd like friendship / relationship with someone who is at least veg friendly. I try to live with self sufficiency in mind and am in the process of buying land in the mountains to grow, build, live, love, and cry on.
