Newly Engaged US Couple Meets on Veggly! #OurVegMatch!

Meet Wil and Nate, who found each other on Veggly and fell in love at first sight – or should we say love at first text? They told us one of the most beautiful stories we’ve received so far from couples who met through the app. Now, we would like to share this inspiring modern love story with you!

“I just want to say how happy I am to have found Veggly. I had enough with dating women who just couldn’t understand my ethical concerns regarding animals. Me being vegan and them being non-vegan was something that became a recurring issue. And working from home as a professional artist didn’t exactly give me many opportunities to meet women, let alone the right women. Therefore, I decided to search for a veg-friendly dating app in hopes of finding a better match. I got an account with Veggly and was happy to know that there were others out there who cared about the things I cared about.  


My work, however, consumed me, and for months I hadn’t yet dated anyone from the app, that is, until June of 2020. I opened up Veggly and there she was! Her name was Wil. She was so beautiful and she was vegan too! It was her first day on the app. We started chatting, and quickly took our conversation to Instagram, and then Skype. I lived in Tampa. She lived in Miami. We were both over four hours away from each other, but that didn’t stop us from getting to know one another. We spent two and a half months talking every day before meeting in person. So, by the time we met, it didn’t take long for me to ask her to be my girlfriend. We became a couple in September of 2020. 


While our relationship continued to be long distance, we made the effort to visit each other on weekends. Sometimes she’d come to Tampa. Sometimes I’d go to Miami. And other times we’d meet in the middle – exploring beaches, canoeing rivers, and camping in the wilderness. It was so much fun to have the opportunity to spend time with her, and it was always comforting to know that our diet and our ethics were never going to be an issue.
Eventually, after months of long distance dating, Wil accepted a remote position, which gave her the opportunity to move to Tampa! Since her move, we’ve had the opportunity to grow together, and to know each other more deeply. In September of 2021, one year since we met in person, I happily asked Wil to be my wife. Without hesitation she said yes! 
We are grateful to have had the opportunity to meet each other. We are so excited to start the rest of our lives together. Wil tells me that she almost didn’t sign up, but that her brother encouraged her to, because she “could find the one!” Well, turns out, she did. And it only took her one day! “

This Spanish Couple Met on Veggly!

We get so happy when we help bring a new vegan couple together! This is the main reason why we created Veggly and knowing that we are helping people this way makes us very happy and inspires us to keep going! 😊🌱This Spanish Couple Also Met on Veggly!

Ana and Alfonso met through Veggly and are dating nowadays. Take a look at the testimony that they shared with us:


“I saw Alfonso’s profile on Veggly during my holidays in Spain on the 11th of July. I hadn’t been home for a year and a half because of Covid and two days into my holidays i saw his gorgeous pics on Veggly.


I’m Spanish but I live in UK. We didn’t match but he had his IG account on his bio. I followed him and he messaged me first. We connected straight away and after a week talking every hour of tj day he came to visit me and he had our first date.


It was a fantastic date and a week later he went to Menorca on his sailing boat with his friends and he invited me to come over… I joined them 3 days later!!! I flew all the way from Barcelona to Menorca to meet this gorgeous vegan guy for the second time, we spent a full week together and it was the best holidays of my life.


When we came back we spent many days together… including my 30th birthday! The 25th of August I had to return to the UK. Now we have a long distance relationship, but by summer next year we are planning to live together. I am so grateful to have met him! I don’t think I would have known him if it wasn’t because of Veggly.”

56% of American vegans wouldn’t date a meat-eater

vegans dating meat-eaters

New US research from Veggly reveals that over half of American vegans wouldn’t date a carnivore

The vegan dating app Veggly has released a new survey revealing that more than half of US vegans wouldn’t date a meat-eater. Veggly surveyed over 2,000 people in the United States to reveal the top vegan dating trends for 2021. It showed that well over half of American vegans (56%) wouldn’t consider a relationship with a meat-eater.

Vegan dating trends

American vegans are 13% more likely to avoid dating meat-eaters than vegans from other countries where the average figure is only 43%. In addition, 18% (nearly 1 in 5) of American vegans wouldn’t even consider dating a vegetarian as they are still consumers of animal products. This figure is also higher than vegans from other countries (1 in 10). 

American vegetarians are also more reluctant when it comes to meat-eaters. 1 in 2 (50%) wouldn’t consider a carnivore for a partner, compared to 38% for vegetarians from other countries.

Rise of veganism

The rise of veganism and plant-based diets across the globe in the past two years has fuelled Veggly’s rise to prominence, with significant increases in vegan populations in almost every country. A recent study revealed that the number of Americans following plant-based diets is up by nearly 10 million over the last 15 years.

The United States boasts the highest number of Veggly users in one country, with 66,130. Brazil is second, with over 60,345 users, and Germany is third with over 47,228 users. The UK places fourth, with 46,575 users, and Spain is fifth with 16,122 users.

Commenting on the new findings, Founder of Veggly, Alex Felipelli, said: “These findings help us understand why Veggly has become so popular in the United States. American vegans clearly want to be with someone who shares their love of animals. For many American vegans, their ‘veganism’ is a way of life, so it’s understandable they wouldn’t want to be with a partner that consumes animals or animal products. 

“We created Veggly for that exact reason and we are very proud of the successful growth in the US. Our mission is to help herbivores find the best and most compatible partners, and we are 100% dedicated to helping this community grow as much as possible. We always reinvest in the platform every month and make improvements to the platform every week to improve the experience and cope with rising demand.”

More exciting news for vegans looking for love today! We are very pleased to announce that as the world’s leading dating app for vegans and vegetarians, we now have over 300,000 users around the world.

Since July 2019, the Veggly has grown in user numbers by a factor of 12, from 25,000 users. At the same time, we are also celebrating over 1 million ‘Veg-Matches’ (where two users match with each other) and we predict over 2 million by mid 2021.

Commenting on the new user milestone, our Founder, Alex Felipelli, said: “The growth we’ve seen is incredible! As veganism continues to surge in popularity across the world, so does the demand for herbivorous dating and relationships. So many of us want to be with someone who shares the same values and love for animals, so it’s no surprise we have hit the 300,000 user mark so quickly.

“This milestone will strengthen our commitment helping this community grow as much as possible. Especially as it was Valentine’s Day last week, we will do our best to make sure every herbivore on our app finds their ‘Veglentine’ this year.”

Vegan Sexual Performance: 67% report a boost after making the switch

In this article, we reveal our latest research showing how two-thirds of vegans report an increase in sexual performance and enjoyment since switching to a vegan diet.

Vegan sexual performance

Very exciting news for vegans today! Especially when it comes to life in the bedroom! We’ve released new data from a survey of 5,000 vegans across the world revealing how making the switch to a plant-based diet has impacted their sexual enjoyment and performance. The results are worth celebrating!

The research shows that over two thirds of vegans (67%) have experienced a noticeable increase in sexual performance and enjoyment after making the switch to a vegan diet.

In particular, vegan men were most likely to notice a difference. 7 in 10 (71%) vegan men reported a boost, in contrast to 59% of vegan women.

The new findings are consistent with arguments made in The Game Changers by Dr. Aaron Spitz who witnessed a significant boost in strength and duration of erections for male athletes who took part in a controlled test to measure the impact of a vegan diet.

We believe these findings are likely to contribute further to the continued rise of veganism and plant-based diets across the globe.

This excellent growth has helped fuel our own growth in users. We now have over 290,000 users around the world. Find your Veg-Match today!

Commenting on the new research findings, our founder, Alex Felipelli, said: “This is exciting news for vegans and anyone considering a switch to a vegan diet! It’s yet another excellent reason for ditching animal products and choosing vegan food at every meal. It’s clear that your diet can impact life in the bedroom!”

So there you have it! If this doesn’t convince non-vegans, what will?!

As we grow further, make sure you stay up to date and read some of our success stories and messages from our users who found love from their Veg-Matches – all on this page here.

The research shows that over half of vegans (52%) wouldn’t consider a relationship with a meat-eater. In addition, just over 12% of vegans, roughly 1 in 8, wouldn’t even consider dating a vegetarian, as they are still consumers of animal products.

Vegetarians are also reluctant when it comes to meat-eaters. 4 in 10 (39%) wouldn’t consider a carnivore for a partner.

Veggly Growth

The new findings help explain the recent, rapid growth of Veggly. Our platform now has over 250,000 users around the world. Since July 2019, the app has grown in user numbers by a factor of 10, from 25,000 users.

Overall, the United States boasts the highest number of Veggly users in one country, with 46,552. Brazil is second, with 39,215 users, and the UK is third with 34,420 users. Germany places fourth, with 33,890 users

Rise in Veganism

The rise of veganism and plant-based diets across the globe in the past two years has fuelled Veggly’s rise to prominence.

Vegan population has grown significantly in almost every country. As an example, a recent study revealed that the number of Americans following a plant-based diets is up by nearly 10 million over the last 15 years – a 300% increase and nearly 3 percent of the population in the United States.

Commenting on the new findings, Founder of Veggly, Alex Felipelli, said:
