More People Saying Political Affiliation is a Dating Deal-Breaker
In our politically polarized times, more people are saying that political affiliation is a dating deal-breaker, saying they won’t date a Democrat if they’re a Republican or a Republican if they’re a Democrat, the Wall Street Journal reports, citing Barbie Adler, the owner of high-end matchmaking service Selective Search. Adler, who’s firm has 28 offices across the country, says she’s seeing more clients unwilling to date across political lines this year than in other recent presidential election years. Adler says her clients are often putting differing political affiliation ahead of religious differences, unattractiveness, and low educational and professional attainment on the list of things they don’t want. Adler told the Journal that in the past, about 25 percent of her clients wouldn’t date a member of the opposite party, but now it’s jumped up to 75 percent, with the opposition to it particularly strong in swing states. The Journal says far less expensive dating services are seeing this political dating divide too, such as OK Cupid and Match.com.
