We get so happy when we help bring a new vegan couple together! 🌱 And this story is particularly great because it crosses borders! That’s right: Charity is from Netherlands and Joe is from the UK.
Veggly’s main mission is to help vegans and vegetarians find their soulmates and we firmly believe distance is less of a barrier when it means to find people with similar values and ethics!
Charity and Joe believed that and are now dating. 😊 Here’s the testimonial Charity shared with us:
“Our story started when both of us started to scroll through Veggly. Both of us realized that the vegan datingpool is very small and we definitely didn’t expect things to turn out this well. Finding someone who is vegan is great but it obviously takes much more to fall in love and to build a good relationship. From the moment we started talking we realized how many things we have in common and how many shared interests we have.
Joe is from UK and I, Charity, am from the Netherlands. It didn’t take long before we really wanted to meet in person and so Joe booked a flight to meet me in Amsterdam on my birthday. Needless to say it was the best birthday ever. We went climbing and shared meals at some of the many amazing vegan restaurants that Amsterdam has.
Shortly after, I flew to the UK to stay with Joe, we were both very sure that we wanted to be together. We went on a trip to the Lake District (England) and Isle of Skye (Scotland) by car. We camped every night in our tent, did lots of hikes, and took baths in the ice-cold lakes.
As Scotland is notorious for its rain we had to spend four days and nights in the car as all the campsites were flooded. Even though a car is a very confined space to be locked up in for so many hours we had a lot of fun as we continued cooking our porridge breakfasts and stir-fries in the car. I think on this trip we realized that our adventurous souls had found each other.
As I had to go back to the Netherlands to pass my driving test, Joe came with me. I showed him some of my favorite places in my region before we headed back to live together in the UK. We recently bought a van together. We are in the process of converting it to a camper so we can travel together through Europe.
Thank you Veggly for making it possible to find each other. Both of us have never been this happy in life and we are very sure we won’t ever need a dating app again 😉”
There you have it! Another vegan couple Veggly helped creating. This is the main reason why we created Veggly and knowing it is working makes us very happy and inspires us to keep working hard for the community!
