We create life-changing matches and love stories in the veg community. Find Veg Love is 100% vegan owned and operated. We are the creators of Veg Speed Date, the first and only speed dating for vegans and vegetarians across North America.

Our events are the best way for veg*ns to connect in real life with like-minded singles. We create fun, friendly spaces where veg singles can match for dating and friendship. Every detail has been thought through to make sure people have a great time, don't need to worry about feeling rejected, and have the best chance of making that special connection.

And it's working: 3 of 4 people match on their first try. Since February 2017 we've facilitated over 3000 matches in almost 100 cities. We're proud to have inspired many success stories, including two marriages so far!
Back in 2011, our friends were telling us how difficult it was to meet like-minded singles as a vegan or vegetarian. To help them, we came up with the idea of veg*n speed dating, and launched the first Veg Speed Date event in Berkeley, California.

What began as a fun experiment became a local institution. Participants were amazed to discover how many single veg*ns lived right in their own city. Making these connections in person, in a fun, friendly way, felt like such a breakthrough.

Eventually we started to learn that people who had met at the event were moving in together and getting married. This sowed the seed of an idea: could these amazing love connections be made everywhere, not only in California but coast to coast?

We decided to find out. On Valentine‘s 2017, we brought Veg Speed Date to cities across the United States and Canada. It was a smash hit. People were calling it "revolutionary" and matching up at an astonishing rate.

We‘d love for all vegans and vegetarian singles to give the event a try and match up too. We think our event concept offers singles the best chance at finding love when they decide it‘s time.
