When you’re dating someone matching your dietary requirements isn’t straight forward.
And if things go well and you start living together, it can be even more difficult.
When one man met his girlfriend, he was initially fine with her vegan diet but when they moved in together he admits he missed ‘mac and cheese with cut up hot dogs’.
So rather than just making it for himself, he decided to test whether her reasoning that dairy products gave her bad acne was true.
He was convinced that she’s just grown out of her teenage acne a bit later than everyone else and didn’t think it would make a difference.
He decided to switch her soy milk for regular dairy milk without telling her.
His post on Reddit said: ‘I’ve been dating my GF for three years. A while before I met her, she went vegan basically for health reasons. Mostly she swears that it cleared up her skin—from pictures, it seems she went from really gnarly acne to very clear skin.
‘Now, I thought this might be due to her age—teenagers get acne and it goes away yeah, hers just went away a bit late. And now that we’re living together, I’ve been getting tired of all the vegan food (I do the grocery shopping but she does all the cooking). She’s a great cook but sometimes a man just needs some mac and cheese with cut up hot dogs.
‘So I thought I would prove to her that the whole “dairy gives me acne” thing is in her head. For the past two months I’ve been emptying the same soy creamer container and filling it with dairy creamer.
‘I was gonna do a big reveal, like “Surprise! You can eat whatever you want!” But she’s been wearing makeup both in and out of the house lately…and last night I saw her barefaced for the first time in a while and it is BAD. Like insects about to hatch out of her face bad.
‘So I figure I’ll just quietly throw out the dairy and her skin will go back to normal… I feel bad but on the other hand I was doing it for her own good!’
It seems like he’s just going to switch everything back now he’s realised she was right but people on Reddit were not impressed with what he had done.
One said: ‘You also could have made her horrendously sick! If she’s been vegan for years and you gave her animal products then she could have gotten extremely ill. Please never do that again.’
Most agreed that he should tell her what he did and let her decide what to do. Others said that what he did was abusive.

‘I mean there’s a ton of reasons why he needs to tell her what he did. But I have cystic acne and I freak out anytime it comes back after being clear for awhile and frantically search for an answer. It’s a huge cause of stress, and then the stress makes me break out more. I wouldn’t be surprised if she’s reacting similarly,’ another said.
Another poster added: ‘I’m sorry, but you need to tell her. You betrayed her trust. You acted like you knew better than her on a topic she knows way more than you (IE HER OWN F*CKING BODY), you essentially poisoned her and are showing absolutely no remorse, I sincerely hope this post goes viral enough for her to realize what had happened and you get dumped.’
But despite all the comments, the man seemed determined to keep it a secret telling everyone that he would ‘take it to his grave’.Advertisement
