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.

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!

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".

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.

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!

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

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.

I'm a libertarian, having to date someone with the exact same political views as me would substantially decrease my pool of potential partners.

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.
