Do politics matter in your relationship or date?

I was talking to my boyfriend and told him that if we didn't share political affinity it would be awkward to talk about many things and it would probably turn me off for a lasting relationship.

I might have taken it a bit too far, but I wonder if you guys have had lasting relationships regardless politics, or do you just avoid the topic.

  • It matters to me.

    I have strong political views, but it's more than that: my political views are based on my values and worldview. They don't have to share every political view that I have, and some political issues hold more weight to me than others, but having very different political views would suggest to me that we have very different values and worldview and that we're likely not compatible.
