The guy I'm talking to hasn't texted me back for 3 days ever since I told him that I was voting for a Republican in this presidential race, but was not decided on who yet... He of course is a liberal Democrat and even works for a Democratic senator. I'm just wondering if this made him lose interest in me all of a sudden...

People who are into politics trip me out, haha. Some folks root for it like their favorite sports team, it really blows my mind that people can be that concerned with what people other than themselves are doing. But I heard a quote once that stuck to me, although I don't know who said it: "Being able to entertain ideas without accepting them is a sign of intelligence." And I think there's truth to that, you're being closed-minded if you just immediately shut down to thoughts and opinions contrary to your own. My girlfriend, who actually is very intelligent, doesn't really fall under that. If she finds out someone is a Republican, game over, she doesn't want to even know them. She just takes it as a character flaw, as if it just tells you everything you need to know about someone. She thinks it means you're automatically racist, homophobic, greedy, lacking in compassion, and that's clearly not a conclusion you can comfortably and automatically jump to, haha. If you don't Feel The Bern, she ain't feeling YOU😂 And she's not dumb by any stretch of the imagination, but she's very fiery and can become blinded by passion, so I think her wise mind checks out at those times, haha. So maybe this guy is the same, especially if he works in politics, and he just can't bring himself to go across the aisle🚫🐘 Its only 3 days though, guys can just go AWOL like that sometimes if we're busy😜0

Well they say that religion and politics are the top 2 things that you should never talk about with people because they have so many different views and beliefs that it can cause a lot of tension when you and another person are not even on a different page but in a completely different book! I remember being in middle school arguing with a couple of class mates about religious beliefs, things got heated enough. We didn't stop talking but there was a lot of tension in the air. I mean depending on the person and their views, some things can be accepted, but others can't. I've had discussions about politics, but I've never got into a heated debate about the matter, not like religion, but now a days I talk as little as possible about those things. So there is a good possibility he might not be talking to you because of political views. I would just feel him out and let him know that I'm willing to learn more about why he doesn't agree with my political views, and if he doesn't answer than move on and do your thing.0
