The fastest growing sector in the online green dating scene is for vegetarians, and there are several sites that will help you find someone looking to share their juicer.
One of the newest and most successful in the garden patch is Veggie Love, the sister site to Green Singles.
Crosby says, “Members love this option as it fosters creativity and fun while allowing them to express themselves more fully.” You can also upload videos to add a personal touch to your profile, as well as find helpful advice articles that are unique to the demographic like “The Top 10 Things to Do On a Green Date.” Besides helping people find the perfect match, Crosby also loves learning about the environmentally-friendly things couples do together after they meet on the site, such as hosting eco-conscious events, workshops, and retreats, which they can post on Conscious and promote to other Green members.
Started up in 1984, it advertises itself as the "simple, smart, prudent way" to find your socially conscious, progressive mate who is intelligent and creative while being interested in social justice, gender equity and the environment.
Green Singles has been operating since the early 80s.

Before taking over Green in 2014, Crosby got the idea of creating her own dating site in 1998.
She was on a mainstream site that kept matching her with people she had nothing in common with, so she set out on a mission to prevent singles from having the same experience she did.Crosby, a serial innovator in this industry, was kind enough to give us all the details on Green Singles.com, including the site’s unique features, the importance of listening to users’ needs, and the value of the niche dating market.Green isn’t a typical dating site where you hand your dating destiny over to someone else and hope for the best — they get members involved in the matching process with numerous tools and features you won’t find anywhere else, including custom essay questions, in-depth Match Questions, and astrological compatibility.Crosby brought that same energy to Green when she inherited it after the previous owners retired.The site is now part of the Conscious Dating Network, Crosby’s umbrella company, which consists of many dating sites within the same realm (conscious/green/spiritual), like different doorways into the same house.It’s common interests like these, she said, that build the foundation for a successful relationship.
