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. Me celebrating with a couple of my pro Obama friends ticked her off and I haven't gotten a reply back from her since this morning...
So any of you folks have an idea to recover from this spot?

Since who you voted for has NOTHING to do with this question (not that you can tell from all the whining that grown men seem to be doing in the comments), I think that you can have a relationship with someone who has different political views, depending on what they are.
If your political views are a huge part of your personality and a defining factor in your life? That can be hard. I think it's easier for a couple to work if they have different political views, but aren't exceedingly political - such as I have pretty strong opinions in certain areas, but I honestly don't discuss politics with most people, sometimes even my significant other, because there's so much in my life that I deem more important.
Your celebrating the candidate you wanted shouldn't offend her, as long as you didn't rub salt in the wound - in other words as long as you kept it out of the relationship and away from her. Since I'm assuming you'd have wanted the same from her if the situation were reversed.2
