Betrayed man furious after girlfriend tricks him into eating vegan meals

01/04/2022

A man slammed his girlfriend for 'betraying' him by feeding him vegan meals.

The guy accused his girlfriend of 'lying' to and 'tricking' him as she didn't tell him she was using meat alternatives when cooking their dinners. However, she didn't see the issue.

The woman explained the situation in a Reddit post as she asked for opinions.

She explained that although her boyfriend supported her diet choices of being a vegan, he never joined her as he was a big fan of meat.

However, she would make meals for her boyfriend when he came to her house, using meat alternatives, without him knowing.

She wrote: "When he's come over and I've made lunch or dinner it's always been vegan dishes.

"I've never tried to actively hide this from him, when he asked what we were having I'd say things like 'burgers' and I assumed that he knew it would naturally be something like impossible burgers."

After eventually coming clean, her boyfriend was furious at her for "lying" even though he was a big fan of the food whenever he ate it.

All was revealed at Christmas as the couple were unable to travel home and spent the day together. They ended up eating a vegan lasagne that the woman made.

She revealed: "After dinner, we were watching some cooking show and a contestant was making something with fake meat.

"He commented how he hated when dishes pretended to be meat when it was plant-based and it was deceptive and gross and he would never eat that."

The woman decided to tell her boyfriend that she had fed him the same food numerous times, which he did not realise.

She added: "When he questioned me I explained that dinner had been entirely vegan with fake meat and every time he's eaten at my place it's been a vegan dish.

"He got really mad. He accused me of tricking him into eating something he found disgusting and 'forcing' my diet on him."

The woman told her boyfriend that he was overreacting, but he said it would be the same as if he tricked her into eating meat.

"I said it wasn't the same because I was morally opposed to eating meat but nobody was morally opposed to eating plants," she said.

She added: "We argued some more and he left and went home. He hasn't been over since."

The woman then attempted to smooth things over with her boyfriend after a few days, but it backfired.

"He wrote a few paragraphs about how betrayed he felt. He said that he hoped I understood how disappointed he felt that I would tamper with his food like that and that something like this was a serious betrayal of his trust" she said.

"He said I should have disclosed that none of the food I ever made contained meat. He finished it by saying he would come over for New Year only if I apologised for lying to him."

There were a few mixed comments on the post, however many agreed the man had overreacted.

One person wrote: "The number of times I have heard grown men say in all seriousness, 'it's not a meal if nothing bled' are many."

While another added: "It’s possible the boyfriend heard ‘vegan’ and was such a know-it-all misogynist that he didn’t request clarification on what vegan meant."
