1. The thoughtful response
This is the one that immediately pulls out a phone and tries to look up restaurants to accommodate you. This person doesn’t make you feel like an inconvenience but makes it a mission to find a place that satisfies you both.
2. The inappropriate response
This usually only happens if you’re dating a guy but I’m sure girls have gone here too. This is the person that makes a “joke” questioning if you can still eat his meat. Although he’s playing it off as a joke, this is secretly a legitimate concern of his.
3. The jerk response
This person will not be shy about telling you how you should be eating meat. They usually will also make a comment about how they will eat enough meat for the both of you. According to them, you need meat to be healthy and they can’t even imagine how you can live without it.
4. The 21 questions response
This is the person who will go off on an hour long tangent asking you all types of questions about your choice to be a vegetarian. Animal rights? Health? The environment? and my gosh how do you get your protein?!
5. The overwhelmed response
This person has clearly never dealt with a vegetarian before. They will act frazzled and stressed and start asking if you things like: so can you eat bread?
6. The unfazed response
This person realizes that how you chose to eat has nothing to do with the person that you are. Not only do they not try to change you but they also don’t question all of your morals and beliefs over dinner.
