Latest News

Germany couple Evi and Falco are engaged after matching on vegan-friendly dating app Veggly, a first for the platform.

Vegan and vegetarian dating app Veggly has made a milestone announcement with the first wedding born out of its Veg Match.

Evi and Falco are the first vegan couple to be engaged after meeting on Veggly. Evi, from Düsseldorf, and Falco, from Herne matched on the dating app in December 2019 and are engaged 15 months later.

Evi, who proposed to Falco, said: “I am incredibly grateful that I met this wonderful person. Falco is the love of my life. I would never have believed that love could be so strong and beautiful as ours, and it grows every day.”

Adding that she “found the man of my dreams” after using Veggly, she said: “Every morning I wake up to this lovely human being, now my fiancé, who
gives me so much strength because of our same values and beliefs.”

Falco called it a “perfect match”. “There are points in life where you can really feel when you thrive the most. For me, it was, on the one hand, finding veganism and, on the other hand, meeting my girlfriend, now fiancée, Evi,” he said.

He added: “No wonder we harmonised so incredibly well right from the start. She shares my views on the important things and compliments me perfectly on the right things. Every day, I find new things that I love about her.”

We are already looking forward to the wedding, and many more Veggly weddings.
