Vegetarian/Vegan Social Networks, Personals, Singles, Dating Site Annotated Links

    The International Vegetarian Union used to have a links page like this, but unfortunately they deleted it years ago, so I started this in 2012--maybe 10 years after I started using such sites.

Social Networks

Happy Cow (free) is one of the oldest vegetarian/vegan social networks (started as a restaurant guide.) It has a dating group.

Vegppl is a newer vegetarian/vegan social networks.

Personals/Singles/Dating Sites

    The first few of these sites also have non-vegetarians--sometimes on separate sites in a network--but they all have many vegetarians/vegans.
    Many so-called vegetarian/vegan personals sites--not listed here--that can be found on popular search engines are actually part of a larger network with mostly non-vegetarians. Certain sites look similar, and as soon as one signs up, one will probably receive many messages from non-vegetarians. Those particular ones are also rather expensive sites. It is also said some sites use fake profiles.
    There are some international (besides that most here are) and United Kingdom (UK) sites, but I am omitting the ones that remove your profile after a period or are just, like the ones in the last paragraph--or because of very poor search features--not very worth one's time.
    Unfortunately with the popularity of the internet, people are scattered in more places across it... the sites below are in the order that I use them, starting with some of the most popular and useful ones.
