In my opinion, everyone should at the very least know the basics and try to be somewhat updated on the different parties and their representatives, especially during election times. Politics is important even if it might be boring at times, you should at least know who you want to vote on and why.
I'll have to think about that. When I was younger it didn't bother me at all. Just didn't matter.
Now I will say I'd rather date a girl that has no opinion from a political standpoint than date a girl of opposite political opinion. We wouldn't go down that road, because it would be a one sided discussion. I probably wouldn't be turned off by it.
Political conversation doesn't make up a big portion of my life
I want to have intelligent conversations with the woman I'm with.
Sometimes I'll ask her trivia questions just to see if she's anywhere in the ballpark of "not a moron". One is, "Do you know the smallest denomination of bill without a US President?" Not everyone knows this and that's ok, but one time someone said... "Ummmm Lincoln wasn't a president was he?" Yeah ok, it was nice to meet you, have a nice life.
Politics ARE very important with the success of a relationship, because if you both can't agree how to run a country, how will you run a relationship? If someone doesn't care about politics than that isn't a big deal since they're probably open to anything.
A, politicians are the ones who makes the whole world a HORRIBLE place, it's unappealing if she doesn't care about anything. AND if she doesn't care about anything, then in turn, will not care about me in the long run.
I'm a huge politics guy and it would be a tiny bit of a turn-off if my partner did not know a lot about the subject. Not a deal breaker or anything though.
On a side note, fuck leftism.
If you're younger than 20, who cares. If you're 27 and still have the world view of a 17 year old, it's annoying. But if you're a good looking woman, men will still fuck you. Well, same applies for a man, except he will have far fewer options.
I don't care about politics.
As long as you don't start talking about it. If you start talking about it, and you know next to nothing, ya sound ignant
