With the steady rise of green and sustainable living becoming a normal part of life, diets (and lifestyles) like veganism and vegetarianism have taken a solid foothold. With at least 6% of Americans reportedly self-identifying as vegans, the vegan lifestyle has begun to affect all parts of society. Along with it comes the growth of like-minded support forums, groups, and dating sites, completely changing how we interact. With this change in interactions comes new ways to win the heart and love of a companion. When romance is budding (and/or Valentine's Day is nearing) with your new vegan...
You’re single, vegan, drive a Prius, have an organic, permaculture garden, compost and live in a strawbale house powered by solar energy. You conserve water, hardly produce any trash, shop at second hand stores and have an extremely eco-conscious lifestyle.
First off, THANK YOU! You are setting the example for how humans need to evolve and be stewards of our precious Mother Earth. You rock!
Most vegans that live a “forest green” life strongly prefer their partner be on the same green page. Dating someone that loves steak, drives a Hummer and is generally wasteful is usually a deal breaker.
It’s certainly much easier to date and potentially marry someone that closely matches your diet...
If you’ve finally found your conscious match and see that they are just as much of an animal lover as you are, you might be thinking about how to impress them and their dog on the first date. In fact, one survey found that more than 80% of dog owners said that their dog’s reaction to a new love interest would affect their feelings toward that person. However, don’t let that scare you away from planning and following through with a stellar first date. After all, if they’re really your soulmate, their dog will love you just as much as they will.

Investing your effort into saving energy could potentially cut the country’s projected energy use by about 23 percent by 2020, which would save as much as save $1.2 trillion! With figures like these, we should all be saving energy by cutting back on the waste we create and being more energy efficient by using improved products and innovative solutions. With negative news about global warming, depleting oceans and endangered animals constantly on our radar, it's often hard to know where to start. So, if you’re waking up to a world vision of humanity that's a little discouraging and wondering how you can do even more for the environment, you can start reducing your carbon footprint with these ideas.
Getting a Grip on Climbing and Dating
The word is out: rock climbing is really popular. As more and more people rope up and test their strength and fear of heights at both indoor and outdoor locations, what was once a niche activity moves ever closer to the mainstream. If you’re a green dater and interested in
How do we stay positive during times of turmoil and unrest?
Sometimes it can be challenging to keep your vibration high and to stay positive, especially in what seems like great times of change and upheaval, however, staying positive is a key factor in creating the NOW that you choose to experience.
When you can stay calm and in your heart you can help those in need and also benefit the collective consciousness, which we are all a part of. When you silence your mind and connect with the present moment you connect...
Yes polyamorous relationships work and they work extremely well.
Polyamorous relationships can be deep intimate relationships that equal the intimacy of monogamous relationships. In the past 30 years, I have worked with polyamorous couples, groups and singles as well as monogamous ones. The differences are not found in the relationship style, they are found in the ways in which the people involved approach issues, conflict and the resolution of problems, commitment and the relationships themselves.
Some believe that a person can only fully commit to one...
Having a green lifestyle in general is very important to most of us, so why not take it a step further and make sure that your dating lifestyle is also green.

I have truly been moving through many deep levels and layers of healing, following the passing of my mother last March.
People often describe a complete transformation taking place in their lives after the death of someone close. Something about death causes you to reach deeply into your soul – as I said when my sister passed away over 4 years ago, your “heart gets broken open.”
Although my relationship with my mother was very...
The following is a vision that I received in October, 2011. It came to me in the evening before going to sleep while lying in bed. It was if I was actually there, living it. I don't know what created this mass awakening, however, it was very vivid and beautiful. When I came back to this realm I took copious notes in my iphone which was on my night stand. After meditating the morning of 11/11/11, I felt guided to share this vision with our members in the form of a mass email. I got sooooo many responses from that email that I decided to post it on the site. I feel that this vision is waking up deep seeded cellular (and probably DNA) memories for those that read it, feel it and connect with it. I share this with unconditional love and a knowingness that we are all FAMILY. In-JOY!
Here is the vision I was given:
Everyone on the planet...
