Default How dating in New York is changing under the new administration

Wonder where this headed? I wonder if any accidental offspring of a liaison between a tRumpeter and anyone with a normal brain(not sociopathic) would beget.

<It’s your typical midtown Manhattan happy-hour crowd: Groups of co-workers with buckets of beer, a family of tourists and a couple at the bar enjoying the tense chemistry of a successful-looking early date. It’s loud, the Yankees are playing the Red Sox and the doors are pulled back to allow the unseasonably cool summer air drift in from 32nd Street.>

<An engaging blonde woman in her late twenties is sharing her dating misfortunes with the group.>

<“I told him I voted for Trump in the primaries, he practically asked for the check,” she says. “I was like, ‘ok, I thought we were having fun.’”>

<Following last year’s election, the Trump name isn’t just on the towering buildings of the New York skyline. For some in the city, it’s the latest dating deal breaker. Many of the single people I spoke to for this piece, on both sides of the political spectrum, wanted to remain anonymous. They were concerned about stigma, negative reactions from colleagues or online retribution.>

<Since the beginning of the year, I started noticing a new dating profile. Flicking through Tinder, in the interest of immersive journalism, I kept seeing a biography specific to 2017. The photos were interchangeable: the look-at-me-with-my-niece-I’m-good-with-kids shot, the body-shot, and the look-I-visited-Machu-Pichu shot. (I’m starting to feel like I missed the Groupon for that trip). However, under the photos, a trend in descriptions was emerging. In Manhattan, where my app trawled for potential suitors, perhaps 1 in 20 would feature this new angle: The few short paragraphs traditionally filled with description or a witty quip were being used for political demarcation. Men and women were asking suitors to immediately discount themselves based on how they voted in 2016.>

That's not a bad idea. I wouldn't be able to get serious with anyone who thought that Bernie or Hillary were better choices. I prefer intelligent men.

If it's important to you (generic) then by all means ask, or disclose.

My life long BFF voted for Trump. I voted third party. As adults, we don't always have the same view of things, but apparently, there are those who not only find offense with people who disagree with their POV, they demand that you conform to theirs.

Glad I'm not so narrow minded that it's the end all in being friends with someone. Actually, it makes for lively discussions, and could you imagine *gasp* learning something from somebody with a different POV.

Like you said, itís best to get out before you tie the knot. I am happy with the early seventies model that I chose when I got outta the Corps.


BUTT!!

Meet the new wedding vow. I, take thee, to be my wedded Spouse, to have and to hold from this day forward, for better for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, till death us do part, according to THE ORANGE GERABLES holy ordinance; and thereto I plight thee my troth.

Funny, I've been to a few weddings and have never heard the bolded part of the vow. I doubt I ever will.

I don't recall any butt-hurt stories like this from any previous presidential results.
Have people become more stupid? Or is it just the media that is butt-hurt stupid? Followed by butt-hurt stupid people?

Who cares who a chick voted for. As long as she puts out....

Besides, if she's dumb enough to vote for Pantsuit or Socialist Boy, then she's dumb enough to sleep with me.
