Democrat dating republican

It sounds from your posts they should not matter that much.But to me they inform how you relate to the world and your most important values.Often, they involve guilt, a liberal woman dating a paleo conservative and not knowing how to tell her friends the terrible news. And sometimes, they're not tales of forbidden political love, but obnoxious humble brags about how she married a conservative out of pity and was surprised to find that he treated her with respect and knew how to use a knife and fork. But politics doesn't care about what comes naturally. Politicos may fight about tax cuts or Russian spies in our closets, but with the midterm elections coming in 2018, the sociopolitical herding will be on the increase.

We then correlated their “must haves” with their political affiliation— as either a conservative Republican, moderate Republican, moderate Democrat, liberal Democrat, Independent or Libertarian. We found that significantly more conservative Republicans singles say they someone with a sense of humor and who has life of their own, someone who can communicate their wants and needs, someone comfortable with their own sexuality and with the same level of education, and someone who respects them.

If you delay sex in order to get to know someone first, as conservative Republicans tend to do, you are more likely to be comfortable when the kissing begins.

And perhaps those with more traditional values also have less self-doubt, another trait that could lead to a mental calm—and fireworks in the bedroom.

How could I possibly date a Republican when our most important values clash? I don’t expect their families to believe as I do, but they can’t support Donald Trump or Ted Cruz.

I can’t overlook that in this political climate given the opposition’s current rhetoric. And how would they feel when I canvas on Saturdays or host the Clinton campaign holiday party at my house?
