Dating someone with opposite political views
Just as long as they were like me on politics and it wasn't a big deal. Just because she was into the agricultural movement while I am strictly Hunter/Gatherer, does not mean I would be opposed to dating her. I could change my views and settle down in one place to grow roots rather than having to follow the herd.Or she might decide that fresh meat every now and than was preferable to always having granola.I'm sure most of you were glued to the TV last night watching the vice-presidential debate, and regardless of your political stance, I bet you had quite a bit to say throughout their heated discussion. Or do politically heated debates at home keep you on your toes?Now as we all know, topics like politics, race, and religion are usually avoided in certain situations, but what happens when you don't see eye to eye with your significant other on important matters like war, the economy, women's rights, or where our country is headed? I'm curious so tell me, have you ever dated someone with opposing political views?How important is it for you and your significant other to share similar political views? Recently, we conducted a poll to determine how political beliefs are playing a part in today’s dating scene.The results are rather surprising, and reflect the significance political discussions have on dating.33% have experienced a “ruined date” because of a date’s political opinions and of that 33%, 18% would not give their date a second chance.50% of both single men and women think that dating someone with opposite political views was fine for the short-term, but not for the long-haul.Anybody else here currently dating someone with a opposite views when it comes to politics?I ran in a bit of a trouble last night with a girl that I'm currently dating because she's for Mitt and I'm for Obama.
Apparently they literally didn't discuss politics at home at all. That would be a bit strange, but perhaps the only way to make it work?
Lately, the upcoming election is permeating every aspect of American life.
Not surprisingly it has become a topic of discussion in the dating world as well.
