Online Dating Soared by 35 Percent After Trump Was Elected – Also: Dating Site For Trump Supporters
According to this article (next one below), most Democrats would be unwilling to date Republicans.
How stupid. You should be able to look past the person’s political views, unless they are obnoxious about them and insult you over yours or something like that.
(I’m a right winger but would feel perfectly fine dating a left wing guy, so long as he’s not a rude jackass towards me over our political differences.
And, by the way, as a right wing woman, I’d like to say, right wing men should NOT be sending insulting messages to left wing women on dating sites over their political views, as this site says some men are – that is so very rude).
If you’re single and actively dating, this year’s Valentine’s Day may have been your crummiest yet. And not for the usual reasons like lack of chemistry or the person being nothing like their profile promised — but because of whom they voted for, and what political positions they support.
Earlier this month, the dating service Coffee Meets Bagel surveyed 1,320 users and found that the majority of singles say politics are impacting their quest for love.
…Cupid Takes a Hit, Especially for Liberals
Seventy percent of single Democrats said that politics are affecting their dating life “slightly” to “profoundly,” compared with 55 percent of single Independents, and 43 percent of single Republicans. Furthermore, 82 percent of Democrats said “it’s more important that my matches’ political views are similar to mine,” versus 66 percent of Independents and 66 percent of Republicans.
….CoffeeMeetsBagel’s survey showed that Democrats are feeling more affected by politics and are less open to date a Republican than vice versa. Why is that? It could be because frankly, Democrats are traumatized by President Donald Trump.
“The Trump victory has had a profound impact on many of my patients,” said Jonathan Alpert, psychotherapist, relationship expert, and author. “Several report high anxiety and difficulty sleeping and others report how their sex life is pretty much non-existent because they’re just so distraught.”
“Usually people can keep their political views to themselves but with this past election being so contentious and polarizing that’s hard to do,” added Alpert. “People feel so strongly and as a result, their ideologies might be hard to contain. It’s also not surprising that more Democrats are feeling the impact given that their party lost.
If you’re a Trump supporter looking for a romantic partner that shares your political views there’s no best place to find them than Trump Singles, an online dating site catering exclusively to fans of the U.S. president-elect.
Trump Singles was founded by David Goss, a Trump supporter from California. He apparently came up with the idea for the site after hearing of a similar dating service for Democrats, and after seeing that his Republican friends were having a tough time on dates whenever politics came up, and particularly when talking about Donald Trump. So he decided that single fans of The Donald needed a safe space where they didn’t have to compromise on their views.
