Does a far left socialist believe that dating opportunities should be controlled and doled out by a Central Committee of Big Brother Government, as with economic opportunities? Perhaps a bureaucrat (Socialist Comrade) could assign dating partners by fiat, executive order of the People's Assembly?

I suppose I could "hold my tongue" by being a cunning linguist until I just couldn't stand it anymore. its been 13 years and counting for me, I could keep my mind occupied for some time down there, and she might not be able to say much more than my name. It sure would be an interesting goal to have.

but then, the OP was about a long time relationship, if I recall?


Make sure she is not an atheist or she will be screaming "Oh my non-gooooodddd! Oh my non-ggggoooood!"

That would be Oh My Gawd!

When I was younger it wouldn't have matter much if I thought I liked someone, but then my political preferences weren't that developed. Now I would not date anyone who was against simple civil human rights as their idea of moral and what's right would be deeply insulting to others, for me. Outside of politics there are things that I find to be ridiculous, opinions/actions/ways of expressing one's self to others, etc., that I cannot stand to be around. These things are of a very high priority in choosing who I would date or even be involves as friends.

CrimsonFur- Probably not.
IF they could respect my point of view and me theirs, then MAYBE, but my political OPPOSITE (and that word is key), I don't see that working.
More often than not, political mindset influences other behaviors/ways of thinking.
Relationships are difficult enough without getting into it KNOWING there is such a difference between the way you think verses the way they think.
(btw-WHY is everyone getting SO worked up about this OP's sexual preferences? He did NOT ask about his sex life!)

Left wing wack job women are "easy" so I will condescend to date them short term for that reason only. I certainly do not consider them long term material!

I love left wing wack job women.

But labeling them easy is no different than using the term slut, witch to me is ridiculous and a double standard by Right wing male chauvinistic Trump-loving religious fundamentalist, gun carrying, Planned Parenthood hating, Cuba-Iran foreign policy disgusted men.

As a semi-liberal now living with a conservative republican, I find it's bit of a balancing act. I watch the evening news alone as he no longer watches main stream news-which is fine with me. He usually doesn't bring issues up which helps but when I do, he gets pretty wound up. I try to find common ground such as federal spending being out of control and try to respect his opinions on gay marriage, gun control, etc.

I tell myself that the majority of guys in my area (midwest) are of similar values and well, I like living here in his house. So basically, if you can keep debates to a minimum, are not joined at the hip, it's not ideal but could work. Can't really do anything about a lot of it anyway.

Mary Matalin and James Carville are married.
Some people feel they are somewhat opposite.

I can't decide if my political opposite would be a capitalist conservative or a tax evading conspiracy theorizing hippie... Either way, not so much. Unless he was rich. Haha.

I will date liberal women, but only for sex, because they are so easy.

For a long term partner I will only consider a conservative woman.

I'm going to keep thinking about that statement - I'm sure it will make sense eventually.

I see the second part of that statement as acknowledging that only someone who is batshit crazy could put up with him for more than a few hours.

I wouldn't bother to date anyone who was a religious conservative
considering I'm an atheist democrat ever again!

That marriage was a nightmare of differing beliefs
and power struggles!

Never again!

Funny thing?

I met him in a ultra liberal setting and figured
it matched his belief system! WRONG!

A well-chiseled Ms. Coulter type wouldn't stick around to see if you cared, either.

Don't understand the hate I'm seeing here. It's a legitimate question. As long as their political views didn't make me question their intelligence, and as long spirited political discussions could be had with argument, I could live with it Personally, sexual compatibility would be a higher priority to me than politics.

agreed, if they can argue h0nestly, and don't need to salt every conversation with it, its not a problem. You might want to go down to "off topic" however, to see why some people think that might not be possible :)

I make it a habit not to discuss religion or politics with any one I would be dating. It is our business and really should not interfere with having a social life. If a person is a religious nut, that is different. Our views are our business after all. Hopefully there are other common interests that can be enjoyed. .

I tried it once, and found sadly that sexual compatibility just wasn't worth it in the end. I mean, one can only spend so much time in bed ( or against the wall the car, the dining room table and the sofa). Once in a while you have to have a meal and then what do you talk about?

And he didn't like driving in my car because of my Obama sticker....
