7 Ways To Tell If You Can Handle Dating a Democrat

Pin it

Previously, I looked at what qualities it might take for a left-leaning person to handle dating a Republican — but what about the inverse? Many conservatives (I’m thinking of particular friends here) wouldn’t in their wildest DREAMS date a dreaded liberal. (The political ideology that is somehow now exclusively a pejorative in American politics, but that’s a debate for another time…)

So: you, my Right-Winger friend, could probably handle dating a Dem if…

1

You’re not attached to those incandescent bulbs, plastic water bottles, non-Fair trade coffee, and long showers — and don’t mind keeping a reusable grocery bag with you at all times.

2

His unwillingness to fight back in an argument because he’s a “pacifist” wouldn’t drive you up the wall.

3

You didn’t throw anything at the screen during Fahrenheit 9/11.

4

You actually saw Fahrenheit 9/11.

5

Being in a Prius doesn’t make you feel less manly.

6

You’ve never referred to Nancy Pelosi, Hillary Clinton, or Janeane Garofalo as “shrill.”

7

You can handle “the pill” being more than just something in The Matrix.
