Liberal dating a conservative
There’s really nothing like matching with someone on Tinder or OKCupid only to discover through messaging that they vote with your opposing political party.
Can a conservative and a liberal find love together? UPDATE: I APPARENTLY WAS MUCH MORE PATIENT WITH CONSERVATIVES WHEN I FIRST WROTE THIS A FEW YEARS AGO. My experience has been that men are less concerned about a potential mate’s political affiliation.
Though I am usually left gobsmacked by conservative ideology, I can generally accept differences. But when it comes to dating and spending time getting to know someone on an intimate level, I have found I only want to spend time with men who are of like mind in political affiliation or, minimally, centrist left-leaning.
The last thing I want to do is meet up with someone and have the election come up – as it does more and more these days – and find we’re not on the same side. I’ll also throw in there that all these writers (and they’re almost exclusively women) penning breathlessly tone deaf essays about their Trump-supporting partners need to GTFO of here.
Sorry, but if your husband or wife voted Trump, they were always an asshole. Maybe you shouldn’t be making that information public, because I’ll side-eye you harder than side-eying them.
I will only date someone whose ideologies align with the Democratic party.
