Sorry, Pam.
Love may see no class or color buuut it's apparently pretty judgy when it comes to what's on your plate. 

A survey conducted by the Today show and Match.com found that out of 4,000 singles, nearly 30% of meat eaters won't date a vegetarian. 

According to Today.com, the reasons for this diet-based discrimination are plenty. Some see vegetarians as high-maintenance. Others want to bite into their bloody filet mignon without feeling like their partner disapproves. For burger-loving women, vegetarian men may be viewed as less manly. And some simply say it comes down to shared interests. Chef and writer J. Federer tells Today.com, "The ability to provide and share food is part of romance, and I just can't date a person who does not share those moments of life with me."   

Vegetarians, conversely, may be picky about their food options but not so much about their potential love connections--only 4 percent said they would not date a meat-eater.   

Omnivores, maybe this will change your mind? (Yeah, probably not.)

I would never date a vegetarian chick. I don't trust vegetarians. As soon as some chick says "vegetarian", it's over.  Also, tattoos: I would never touch a skank with ANY kind of tattoo on her body. Odds are, if she's vegetarian and tattooed, she likely has herpes is a skank that sleeps with niggers. Probably has AIDS too.

I'm a vegan of 16 years and I'd never date a guy who didn't eat meat. Men should eat meat.

I have been a vegetarian for 8 years and I have been with my boyfriend for 4 years. He's a huge meat eater and honestly it doesn't bother me. I dont know what the big deal is, respect other people's life choices the same way you would want them to respect you. I think that vegetarians and vegans should stop trying to convert meat eating people into non-meat eating people. Im sure everyone hates it when someone comes along trying to convert them into their religion their dietary habits are just the same, just don't do it. To each it's own.

For me, I also do not like to date a man or a woman who doesn't eat meat. Anyhow, it is just my personal opinion.

I also will not date a vegetarianism, I like eating meat. As we know, human's life is just several decades, we should treasure our lives to do what we want to do.

Carnists males are missing out on some of the most beautiful, intelligent and compassionate women in the world! I got mine and I can't imagine life without her anymore. Why would someone choose to be vegan? To help end world hunger for one! Here are two uplifting videos to help everyone understand why so many people are making this life affirming choice: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fKr4HZ7ukSE and http://www.veganvideo.org

@Snell Lindseyt  Why are you expressing your opinions in public? Women should be seen and not heard....now get back in the kitchen and make me a delicious quinoa burger.

@Snell Lindseyt - More so, when we are talking about that one special cut of meat, that almost no woman can refuse for a man to eat, (lol).

@playbook-video It is a two way street, when it comes to making love, then of course, I love to eat fesh meat, and I would hope that she also likes to each/suck on some fresh meat. It is a natural.
