More than half of vegan daters would refuse to date a meat-eater, according to a new poll.

The polling by Veggly, the world’s leading dating app for vegans and vegetarians, quizzed 7,400 users across the world.

Vegan daters

It revealed that more than half (52%) of vegan daters would not consider entering a relationship with a meat-eater.

On top of that, around 12 percent would refuse to date a vegetarian, due to their intake of animal products.

Vegetarians are almost as fussy when it comes to meat-eaters, with 39 percent saying they would not date someone who consumes animal flesh.

‘Our rapid growth’

According to Veggly, it has grown rapidly in recent times, racking up more than 250,000 global users since July 2019.

Acording to the organization, the United States ‘boasts the highest number of Veggly users in one country, with 46,552. Brazil is second, with 39,215 users, and the UK is third with 34,420 users. Germany places fourth, with 33,890 users’.

Currently available in 181 countries, the Veggly team is working to translate the app into an increasing number of languages. It is currently available in English, Spanish, German, Portuguese, French, Italian, Danish and Polish.

‘Values and love of animals’

In an exclusive statement sent to Plant Based News, Veggly founder Alex Felipelli, said: “These findings help us understand why Veggly has become so popular. 

“Many vegans want to be with someone who shares their values and love of animals. 

“For many vegans, their ‘veganism’ is a way life, so it’s understandable they wouldn’t want to be with a partner that consumes animals or animal products.”

Vegan daters community

He added: “We created Veggly for that exact reason. We are here to help herbivores find the best and most compatible partners, and we are 100 percent dedicated to helping this community grow as much as possible. 

“We always reinvest in the platform every month and make improvements to the platform every week to improve the experience and cope with rising demand.”
