Have you ever dated someone with very different political views than you?
It doesn't matter. I used to be a hardcore liberal and I met my libertarian boyfriend and I was SO closed minded. Until I just listened to him. It's okay to have differing opinions, we learn from others and I'm much more middle of the road now!
Yes, and I spent over two years trying to convince myself it didn't matter. It did.
ever dated, great joke Tony
Not really, but I'd be up for it.
Yes, which is why I married some one else. People who are well informed are usually very opinionated, and their core values are just soooo different.
Truthfully, politics isn't the first thing on my mind when looking for a mate. By the time I care enough to know; even if she had a vastly different view and everything else was fine, there is no way in hell I'm breaking up for politics!
Smart! You can have both opinions and love!
I'm a libertarian and minarchist that believes the only legitimate function of the State is to protect individuals from aggression.
99% of the country doesn't understand that so, yes, almost everyone is "very different".
Yes...he and his father were the biggest conservative assholes ever. Still not sure how/why I put up with it for 11 years!
In utah it's hard not to find a rep. Even though I am one. I found out half way through the date when my friend mentioned the president's job he's done. But if you really like the person politics shouldn't matter.
Once I found out that she was a Republican I dumped her.
Now I'm a budist and just love myself.
????????????????(insert you here)????????????????
I did once, but I refused to be with someone that ignorant, so it didn't work out. I'm happy to be with a brilliant woman who shares my common sense, time proven values.
I'm dating a very liberal girl right now. I am more aware than she is, she is just taking after her parents. I'm a libertarian, so we disagree on most things fiscally related. She doesn't do well arguing her side. XD
Wow, I couldn't date a true liberal. I can stomach conservatives sometimes because some of them claim to be for less govt but liberals worship and now to the State, they just sicken me.
Just like me and my boyfriend! My parents are fiercely liberal, like: I won't take to you if your views are different than mine. So I always felt pressure to be liberal but my bf and I talked and I have to say I saw the light!
I dated a guy who said he was a satanist and he said he asked demons to give his mom cancer...I never asked him about politics lol
Not for long ;-)
Actually the less intelligent woman and girls I dated were liberal. The smarter ones that went on to be professionals also are conservatives. No bull.
The conservatives ladies were probably more attractive too! Most are.
Nope I've only dated one person and She has pretty much all the same political views as me.
Well no but I haven't dated anyone with similar political views either.
My girlfriend is like my toaster oven...
I don't have a toaster oven.
Yep, a far left liberal. The sex was great but she was dumb as a rock on reality based things. Didn't last overly long
I thought you would have said you masturbated with your left hand one time.
RJ, not everyone is like you, bro!
Now put the cat down and go try to find a job!!
Oh god that would be a nightmare! I cant even imagine! Im too stubborn and strong willed to even consider that....
Made me chuckle.
Oops! Didn't hit reply.
I've never dated someone... *Forever alone face*
...... How old are you
No, because I haven't had a gf yet.
I've dated everything short of a true communist and anarchist. Liberal chicks are easily the smartest and make the best spouses. I married one :D <3
Aren't you only like 18?
The spouse is Republican, but since marrying me understand why I support raising taxes on families like us and the ACA; she now agrees with me after doing her own research.
She thought she was a republican because her parents were, until I explained what that meant. Now she's a vehement democrat. Truthfully she doesn't know what that means either, she just likes being opinionated. Also, she's my ex. Ladies.
That's because most Repubs just believe what their parents believe until they learn enough to form an educated opinion themselves which mostly leads to being a Democrat
My momma always told me to never date anyone I couldn't see myself marrying, so I have never, ever dated a liberal.
Yep, and I married her 53 years ago and we are still married. Desention spices up a marriage. Also, I am a Christian and she is Mormon.
Are Mormons not Christians?
Not sure what the difference is, but no they aren't.
So, 'The Church of *Jesus Christ* of Latter-Day Saints' is not Christian?
Mormon doctrine states "as man is God once was". Bible says "God was always God."
Using the name of Jesus Christ does not make you a Christian.
And who has the authority to judge hearts?
I'm a libertarian, having to date someone with the exact same political views as me would substantially decrease my pool of potential partners.
never got that far to find out. when I found out he was a douchebag, I didn't care., it was already over
I don't know, I was so young then
And it ended very very badly.
Once. Only once.
Yeah, it makes for great debates and some really hawt sex! Also, she was the impetus for my political transformation... I was a lefty almost-socialist who dated a Randian libertarian. She briefly flipped me completely, but I've since readjusted and now I consider myself a Radical Centrist.
Dated. Married. Then divorced.
What was I thinking? Marrying a REPUBLICAN?!
Yup. I was a democrat at the time, she was wrong. I now am independent though still lean left. Had a great effect on helping me see both sides of issues.
I've never dated someone, soo...
Never did and probably wouldn't. But I also don't date much, so, whatever. ;)
Probably but I wouldn't know. I don't get into politics with anyone.
She was insane!!!! hit me in the head with a frying pan, stabbed me with a fork, and she thought Bush was a good president.....then she voted for Obama, like I'm saying she was nuts
They're all nuts.
Holy insanity, DiscMan!
And boy, was he a bummer.
Yes, my wife! She cares, I don't!
Yeah. It crashed and burned quickly.
My ex-girlfriend was a socialist
Was she the nice kind or the mean kind?
Wife and I have opposing political views on spending/taxes and a few others, but the social issues we agree on. The debates are fun and we're both continuing to learn each other's views.
Of course. Ignorant girls are the best lays. The ones with Daddy issues, and no morals, are really fun, and dirty. They'll let you do anything to them.
cowboy appears FTW!
(You'll want to scroll down a ways in case your ears have been burning ????)
Yeah... That's to be expected. Not sure what I said about Fryguy's mormon faith though.
Dated her? Heck I married her! We have the best debates. Keeps the marriage spicy after 15 years.
Back when I was very young and naive. Turns out my Republican ex was right all along.
