Re: How you handle relationships where only one is vegan?

For me, this question is the same as saying, "What kind of a relationship should I have with a smoker? Alcoholic? Drug addict? Criminal? Mentally ill person? I treat non vegans like people who don't know the truth--especially if they are the type person who hangs out at McDonald's and has diab...
