Online Dating For Vegans


The 3 Best Vegan Dating Sites (& Vegetarian)

1. Spiritual Singles

This site has been servicing spiritually-inspired singles since it first went online in 2000.

The site has over 85,000 members worldwide and offers a progressive dating atmosphere for people who are vegans, vegetarians, or animal rights activists.

A typical member prioritizes personal development, places a high emphasis on holistic health, and is concerned about environmental issues.

Although the membership is modest in comparison to commercial dating sites, you will be immediately surrounded by people who share your interests.

Interestingly, the owner, Jill Crosby, started out dating on mainstream sites but found she didn’t share much in common with those she was matched with. So she followed her heart and set up Spiritual Singles.


Membership options range from $10/month to $19/month and include the following:

  • Initiate up to 50 emails per day to other members using the internal email system.
  • Initiate unlimited instant messages to other members on the site.
  • Upload up to 20 photos to your photo albums.
  • See basic astrological compatibility with any member on the site.

Monthly Member Visits: 166,000


The match was previously top of this list, but I’ve had to drop it down because they have removed their dietary preference option, which is a real shame. I have emailed in about this and I hope they will reinstate it.

Most vegan and vegetarian dating sites don’t have anywhere near the number of members of the bigger, more commercial sites.

However, usually, the downside of nearly all of the big dating sites is that they don’t let you filter by diet, except Match, that is (up until recently).

It’s odd that they took it down given they recently ran an advertisement targeting vegans. Kudos. has more vegan and vegetarian singles than any other site, by a long shot, with over 13.5 million monthly visitors; you just have to find them.

When I asked Match competitor eHarmony why they don’t include a vegan or vegetarian dietary search option, they answered something along the lines of: “We don’t consider it a relevant enough preference at this time” (I’m paraphrasing, but that was the message I got).

Previously, when searching for matches on Match, you could simply choose “vegetarian” as a dietary need.

You could also search by “healthy eating”, which, if you are mainly plant-based but occasionally flexible, might be more applicable.

Let’s face it: dating is a numbers game. You are more likely to meet someone on a site with 13.5 million members than one with 100,000.

One other thing I like about Match is the number of new members joining all the time.

You regularly see new faces and don’t feel like you’re swimming in the same pool with the same vegans and vegetarians who’ve been single for years!

And as we know, more people are embracing the veg every day, which means more vegans and vegetarians on commercial dating sites, and more filtering options to find them.

When and if they reinstall the dietary option section, I’ll update this post again. Meanwhile, I believe it is still worthwhile to join because you can search by keywords and there are many vegans and vegetarians there.

Monthly Member Visits: 13.5 Million



The match is free to join. When you sign up you get an account that never expires.

Obviously, this comes with restrictions. You will need a membership to contact and IM (instant message) potential dates. It’s pretty affordable though, and certainly cheaper than a night out.

Paid Member (per month):

  • 12 months – $15.99
  • 6 months – $17.99
  • 3 months – $19.99
  • 1 month – $35.99

3. Veggie Connection

Veggie Connection is a not-for-profit site supported by volunteers and the financial subsidies of its founder, Ken.

It has a smaller user base than Spiritual Singles but is targeted more specifically to plant-eaters.

On Veggie Connection you’ll find vegans, raw-foodists, fruitarians, and vegetarians for romance and friendships.

The site is user-friendly, albeit a tad out of touch with modern design expectations. As of 2020, there is an app too.

You can search by proximity, age, height, diet, religion, and more.

You can register an account for free and do the following:

  • Add up to 52 photos
  • Write and edit your profile
  • Send ice-breakers
  • View other members
  • See who is viewing you

It’s worth noting that VC was named Top Site for Finding a Veggie Mate by VegNews magazine a few years ago.
