Hello everyone, I've been vegan for nearly a year now and everything has been going great. It is very unlikely for me to meet someone vegan where I live live but I met this amazing guy who I've been with for a few months now and who is super supportive and I made him watch some documentaries and he stopped buying dairy milk and is vegan as much as he can, he buys all his animal products local and knows how the animals were raised, but he is a hunter. I've been trying to convince myself that the animals he eats had a good life and they they didn't suffer too much, but I can't stop resenting him for taking those lives. I can't stop imagining him pulling that trigger, killing an animal with his own hands. I'm findinf it harder and harder to respect people's choice to eat meat and I don't know if I can spend my life with smoeone who does, even if everything else about them is perfect. I also don't want to ask him to change. I know all I can do is keep educating and hope for the best but, as when I found out the reasons behind veganism, I switched overnight. I don't understand how people can stay omnivore even after they find out all these things. They don't even try. How do you not resent people for not being vegan?

I don't know. I don't think I can be with someone who does that. I mean I used to eat animals but I was ignorant. I didn't know, and there weren't many vegan articles or people online or around me. If I had that, I would have changed a long time ago.

I always tell myself "How can someone kill?"...It doesn't matter who they're killing; human or non-human, but how can someone kill? What's the difference between someone killing a cat or a dog, and someone killing a deer and call it "Hunting"?

When I ate meat, others were doing the killing for me, but I bet you that no one would eat animals anymore if they had to do the killing themselves. People in Cave ages had to hunt if the environment they lived in did not provide them with vegetation, and that was for survival, but in this day and age, I believe, and I am being blunt here, that someone who hunts and kills an animal himself is heartless. They're not doing it for money, and they're not doing it to survive. They just enjoy killing innocent beings.

What do you need? I’m a vegan and never had support either, just like any other vegan. There are many great vegan recipes online that can help you to create great meals. I’m not sure how I can help you in your path. I did it for animals, so support or not, I’d never eat animals ever again. But in your case, I’m not sure how I can help. Maybe if you watch documentaries about what animals go through to reach a plate, you’ll find a greater motive to stay on your path.
