Making friends can be difficult.
But it can be even more difficult when you are not only looking for vegan friends, but are awkward AF.
Like I said in my last post, I don’t have any vegan friends.
Boohoo I Know, but I would like some vegan friends and I find it difficult to make friends in general mostly because I’m very shy and very awkward… I also get anxiety when I talk to people I’m not too familiar with which makes the situation even more awkward. Basically being inside my head whilst speaking to an acquaintance is like a bunch of little people running around looking for things to say and mentally analyzing my every facial movement and inch of my body for tell tale signs of, well awkwardness. So making friends is a little difficult for me.
According to Metro there are now more than half a million vegans in Britain. I live in London and I couldn’t find any information about how many vegans are based in London but I’m assuming it’s a lot.
I’m going to be completely honest. When you go vegan friends you currently have may act different towards you. Luckily I haven’t personally experienced this but I have heard some stories from other vegans via Facebook groups.
But you know, people who change their opinion on you or how they treat you just because you don’t want to eat or buy the same food as them are people you should maybe reconsider having in your life…
I imagine how nice it would be to have a group of pals who share a specific interest as you as well as the same morals when it comes to animals then environment and your health. It’s important to have friends who do, and if you don’t try and make some!
I’ve been thinking of ways to get more involved at events and meet some cool people, I asked to be a part of The Vegan Society’s stall this year at London Vegfest. Honestly i’m really excited about it, and hopefully I can do an entire post about my experience and what The Vegan Society do as an organization.
And even more exciting… maybe I can meet some cool people to chill at the local fruit and veg stall with 😀
