On the flip side, the majority of liberal dudes I have dated were clearly not interested in committing, but that might have been because in New York City, liberal guys get a lot of action.
I’m joking, really, about most of this because I think the notion that conservatives and liberals “date” differently is ridiculous.
One of the women interviewed on the site agrees with me, saying, “I think that the danger with the liberals and conservatives is that if they are living in an area where they’re dominant, they can be quite set and unimaginative about their political ideas…. I’ve dated generous, bleeding heart libertarians and conservatives and sexist, annoying liberals.
I got married at 22 and haven’t had to worry about these kinds of things, thank goodness.
But for those of you who are single and looking for politically compatible love, John Hawkins’ latest feature on conservative women and dating is an entertaining and useful read. She blogs at Conservatives with Attitude: [Hawkins:] Have you dated liberals before? I have always had a policy of not dating liberals, but once, after a bad break-up, I dated a couple of liberal guys…
If so, any difference you can tell between liberal and conservative guys? First of all, they don’t have the same values and I find that to be a fundamental problem.
Wing News, a conservative political blog, interviewed six women who’ve dated both liberals and conservative men and asked them about their differences.
The overall majority seemed to think liberal men were whiny and arrogant.
One woman said, “Liberals were always happy to suggest we split the check; it must be some Clintonian socialist entitlement.
They also tend to own clothing displaying their irrational fear of Dick Cheney, and/or love for Che Guevara.
They are the shaggy haired, greasy hipster types you find loitering in the Apple Store.” I laughed out loud at this because I totally know what kind of dude she’s talking about and his name is My Brother.
Anyway, this series of interviews amused me and got me thinking about the real differences between conservative guys and liberal guys, if you try and take away your own personal bias and disagreements on “the issues”.
