Would you date or marry someone who doesn’t share your political affiliation?
I am a libertarian, (I do not want the government in anyones business) I think we don't need the government to have a good running economy and country. My girlfriend is a liberal she thinks the government should be a bigger part in things open borders and thinks taxes are necessary. We get along great sometimes there are things we butt heads on but we are adults and we work through them as a couple and honestly we have a stronger relationship due to our differences we have together because we have to talk about it and work together to get through it together
I did that. I dated a man who was a writer/editor for the National Review and a friend of William Buckley Jr.
I’m a flaming liberal.
How did it go?
Quite well, while it lasted (2-3 years). We didn’t talk about politics much, though. And it was a long-distance relationship, so we weren’t in each other’s faces all the time. We did see each other fairly often, though. I was in Morgantown WV and he was in Fairfax VA, so it wasn’t a huge distance.
He was a really nice man; kindhearted but with an acidic wit. And very very smart. We had enough other common interests that the political differences weren’t that big a deal.
But long term, in the same place? I dunno. It might have been OK.
Not even if they are moderate and lean left or right? You would just immediately reject them
Yeah, he says that but if the girl was hot, he’d marry her.
No way. I like women with a sense of humor who aren’t offended by everything.
Yikes, nevermind, changing my answer.
Thank Christ in heaven his dating oool is the minority
Your trash and a failure as an American man
You said “never” above my comment.
You agree with me, ya drunk.
What if we just tolerate people of opposite political views l, if our vote is basically meaningless why does it matter so much. If I am a good person and am good in every other category just not politically isn’t it a bit obnoxious to blow me off bc you don’t agree w me politically
Your vote isn’t meaningless
I tolerate everyone. It doesn’t mean I want to have sex with them. It’s important to have things in common. Considering politics is a large part of my life, it would be much more enjoyable to share that positively with someone rather than negatively.
