Category Archive: Date This Vegan

Here are all the SuperVegan blog posts categorized under Date This Vegan. XML

  1. The nerds in charge over at nerdsex mecca OK Cupid have posted 10 Charts About Sex, which includes this instant classic:

    They also provide a handy list of “Vegetarian-Friendly Sex Slang,” which includes such euphemisms as “peeling the banana,” “tossing the salad,” and (my favorite) “putting Monsanto in yoursanto.”

    Anyways, go read the whole thing. And lets hope they can give lots more charts and stats about the sexual proclivities of vegans and vegetarians in the future. (And I guess omnivores, too, for comparison.)

    PS: remember vegansexuals?

  2. Date Cait!

    Date Cait!

    “Date This Vegan” is a regular SuperVegan column in which we feature a reader in the New York metro area who is not only hot and smart, but also VEGAN and looking for love.

    Fellas, meet Cait. This 26-year-old social media strategist from Boerum Hill is one sassy, sharp lady with looks to boot. Raised in LA’s San Fernando Valley, “with an upbringing somewhere between Clueless and Encino Man, ” Cait’s been in New York for five years, and in that five years, she’s got her list of favorite things down to the ‘t’: “long walks (especially when bridges are involved), minor league baseball, new vegan discoveries, old man sports like shuffleboard, Prospect Park, cook-offs for a cause, the New Yorker, Ninth Street Espresso and Rock Band. I can be counted on to try nearly anything once, as long as it’s not too illegal and won’t bring complete shame on my family.”

    Here’s what Cait’s looking for, in her own amusing words: “I’m looking for someone to take on adventures and then curl up with after. Someone who could even take me on an adventure or two. I’m all about learning, so if you’ve got a super-specific wonky interest or just a general subject you’re passionate about, perfect. I’d love to learn more about classic film, Vespas, urban gardening, architecture, vegan chocolates, the blues — you name it, I’m game.

    “Ideally, you’d have a great sense of humor, enough style to steer clear of pleated pants, a healthy appetite, sturdy walking shoes, a surprising turn of phrase, the ability to give reassuring bear hugs, a creative streak, curiosity, good references (can’t hurt, right?), and the ability to get down and boogie every once in a while for no real reason but fun.”

    Cait doesn’t smoke or drink, and she’d prefer you do the same. (Longevity competition!)

    #1 Reason to Date Cait: She will teach you to eat bagels right: “avocado, heirloom tomatoes, and basil leaves with good olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Go California!”

    Contact Cait at DateCait@supervegan.com. We encourage you to send her a picture and tell her more about yourself than your age and how you pay the rent. If Cait doesn’t respond, don’t panic! We imagine her inbox will be overflowing.

  3. Date This Vegan #4: Julie from Yonkers!

    Date Julie!

    Date This Vegan” is a regular SuperVegan column in which we feature a reader in the New York metro area who is not only hot and smart, but also VEGAN and looking for love.

    Hey, menfolk, meet the witty, clever and very cute Julie! She’s a 29-year-old, Yonkers-based, multi-tasking, informally employed multimedia journalist. That sounds pretty rad, right?

    Here’s Julie-the-Journalist in her own words: “I am highly visual and I like to express my creativity through various media. I think and speak parenthetically as there is always a side note. :) I value correct grammar and spelling, and I am easily wooed by a beautifully composed sentence. (That doesn’t mean I haven’t enjoyed dating linguistically impaired fellows, but you anal-retentive types understand what I’m talking about.) Some things I do: Photography, bicycling, reading the news, being a Frugal Gourmet in my own right.”

    Are you a match for Julie? She thinks you should “have a highly developed aesthetic sensibility, but you don’t have to be a professional artist. You are trim, not bulky. You’re realistic, but not bogged down by the realities of life. You feel the weight of the world on your shoulders as you’re socially conscious, but you don’t slouch over because of the burden. You are adventurous, not reckless. You have strong values that you try to abide by on a daily basis. You take animal rights very seriously, but you don’t take yourself too seriously. You feel you are accomplished in your chosen field, and you exude the confidence (not arrogance) that comes with it. In that sense, you would invite the company of an intelligent, accomplished person, without feeling the least bit jealous or inferior.”

    Julie likes her adult beverages, but if you don’t drink alcohol, that’s a-okay with her. However, if you smoke cigarettes, that’s not okay. (You know, if you smoke, you really should quit already. Why? Because SuperVegan.com loves you and we want you to live for a very, very long time, kiddos!)

    #1 Reason to Date Julie: She’s a Sagittarian Monkey.

    Contact Julie at DateJulie@supervegan.com. We encourage you to send her a picture and tell her more about yourself than just your age and what you do for a living. Don’t get majorly depressed if Julie doesn’t respond — we imagine her inbox will be overflowing, and not just because you can cut glass with her cheekbones. Seriously, did you see those things! Hott!

  4. Date Jim!

    Date Jim!

    Date This Vegan is a SuperVegan column in which we feature a reader in the New York metro area who is not only hot and smart, but also VEGAN and looking for love.

    Fellas, meet Jim. Haven’t seen him around? Well, Jim says he’s not really into the vegan scene. He’s a self-proclaimed city man who’s looking for a sexy, physically active guy to play soccer and hike with him. If Jim and his date were stuck on the perfect deserted island, I imagine a typical day would run something like this: you and Jim take a short hike to Vegetarian Dim Sum House (yes, the deserted island is Manhattan!), followed by a bike ride around the island. Then, you and Jim pick bagels from the bagel trees and smother them in Ess-a-Bagel‘s tofu herb spread, which you always have on you because you know Jim loves it. After a game of — I don’t know which video games Jim plays. Street Fighter? Bubble Bath Babes? — you go back to your hut, put on some indie or house music, and make Jim dinner. Something with seitan. Something nice.

    #1 reason to date Jim: He just looks like such a good date. I mean, c’mon, guys. Look at him.

    Contact Jim at datejim@supervegan.com. Send him a photo, and tell him more than your 9-5 and age. If Jim doesn’t get back to you speedily, don’t be sad — we imagine his inbox will be overflowing.

  5. Date Beth!

    Date Beth!

    Date This Vegan” is a regular SuperVegan column in which we feature a reader in the New York metro area who is not only hot and smart, but also VEGAN and looking for love.

    Ladies, meet Beth. She’s a 28-year-old vegan residing in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn. She pitched a haiku-laden entry our way in hopes of meeting a cute vegan gal.

    here’s an idea
    cake batter soft serve hell yeah!
    thanks supervegan!

    haiku gets girl date
    girl buys girl vegan soft serve
    hey, everyone wins

    haikus are precise
    paragraphs take far too long
    hey! a chick-o-stick!

    last one i swear it
    this dates gonna rock for sure
    woot woot woot woot woot

    It took Beth a mere four haikus to outline that rocking date (though you two will need to hammer out who’s treating). If her 5-7-5 skills aren’t enough to inspire you to fire up that email, her bagel toppings of preference are plain tofu cream cheese or peanut butter and agave, she is a forensic social worker, and she has a dog.

    Beth outlines who she’s looking for as: “One who possesses nerd and bibliophile tendencies as well as refined taste in music. One who appreciates good pens, goats, jackets, winter hats, nice glasses, old bikes, new bikes, the smell of fall, her dog, other dogs, reminiscing about ‘80s tv shows, making mixed tapes, makes collages for said mix tapes, eating vegan hot wings, Coney Island, cooking, road trips. These are not required, just appreciated – well, except for the dog part, that’s required.” (Lucky you, seems like an easy requirement.)

    Beth drinks, but won’t expect you to drink and smokes on rare occasion but accepts that you might have more or less frequent smoking habits.

    #1 reason to date Beth: She incorporated “chick-o-sticks” into haiku!

    Contact Beth at DateBeth@supervegan.com. We encourage you to send her a picture and tell her more about yourself than just your age and what you do for a living. Don’t get blue if Beth doesn’t respond– we imagine her inbox will be overflowing.
