Do you have to agree with your S/O politically? Or at least be able to tolerate them?

Could you ever date someone who was on the exact opposite side of the political spectrum? Would conflicts arise?

  • I could never date someone who's the exact opposite side from me politically. I just can't stand liberals... I want a conservative man.

  • I think it would be cause for too many arguments, if we significantly differed.

    I've only once dated somebody who was on the other side of the political spectrum, and guess what? It's the relationship I regret the most.

    Life is full of potential conflicts, and so are relationships. Being blase about that seems rather short-sighted to me.

  • I try to avoid dating people with opposing political or religious veiws. No judgement, people can believe whatever they want, but it usually causes conflicts somewhere down the line.

  • I'm more off of center. Extreme liberal would not work out. I live in one of their strongholds, and can tell. I'm not sure about extreme conservative.

    • Conservatives are the tolerant party nowadays it seems.

    • That seems to be more true. I've never lived in a really conservative area so I'm not exposed to if there are some really bad parts. I know I've heard many stories from current liberals that said they group up in conservative areas that were terribly and openly racist which is hard for me to believe, but then I don't know why they would lie. It's possible they are sensitive exaggerators.

  • If they don't value free speech then that's a dealbreaker.
