You never know, they might agree to try it with you! The easiest way that I made new vegan friends was to join vegan Facebook groups. I had no idea that there were specific groups with thousands, even hundreds of thousands of people!
I made a lot of new vegan online friends that I shared recipes with and found new vegan products to try based on their recommendations. You can even search for state or town specific vegan Facebook groups that setup vegan potlucks in your town, or share reviews of local vegan restaurants, or vegan events that are happening.
