Dating in the Boonies

When I was younger, the "moral" aspects as far as being a vegetarian really did not enter into my dating. I did not actively try to convince someone I was seeing to stop eating meat. At the time, it was just my personal thing. It usually came up in discussions, but these discussions were always directed towards why I didn't eat meat, not why my date shouldn't.

In the past few years however, I am compelled to question people as to why THEY eat meat. I have come to realize that I do not wish to spend the rest of my life with someone who doesn't share my views. I don't think I would feel comfortable sharing my life with a man who finds animal suffering acceptable. I know a lot of good men who would never harm an animal on purpose, however, in my opinion, eating meat IS harming animals on purpose because meat is not needed by humans to live and be healthy. Trying to persuade a meat-eater of this is emotionally draining on me. I have spent many hours arguing this point, mostly to no avail. Here I am, standing in front of them, totally healthy (usually more healthy than they are), and they still refuse to believe they don't need animal products to live! I am totally stumped as to what could ever convince them.
