Research from Veggly has shown that vegan dating is on the rise, following the COVID-19 pandemic. The vegan and vegetarian dating app conducted research into dating post-pandemic, with more than 4,000 respondents.
The research shows that 45% of all respondents didn’t date at all – even on a virtual capacity – during the peak of the pandemic. While some users are still wary about returning to physical dating, 40% of Veggly survey respondents say they are going on more dates and having more dating app interactions than they were even before the pandemic, with 43% saying they are back to dating as they did pre-COVID.
Alex Felipelli, found of Veggly, said: “The pandemic has been very frustrating for people looking for love and new relationships as restrictions have prevented dates, meet ups and holidays. As the lockdowns are easing, we are now witnessing a large surge in new downloads, dating activity and new relationships for vegans and vegetarians. This is wonderful to see!”
Veggly launched in 2017, and hosts over 450,000 global users globally. The app, which aims to help herbivorous daters meet like-minded partners, is available worldwide in a multitude of languages, and has announced more languages are on the way.
