Conservative guys dating
Trust me: you’ll be amazed at how quickly a date that was seemingly going well can suddenly turn awkward, or how quickly the guy will find an excuse to leave.
“Oh, I forgot…I have to take my dog to the vet.” This was a real excuse used on me.
I’m convinced that part of the problem is the city I live in: San Francisco has a lot of great qualities, including the lack of cold weather, the abundance of good Mexican food, and a variety of ridiculous dog names (e.g. One was named “Mountainous” and the other was named “Nectar.”) But the flip side is that it’s not always the friendliest place for a conservative. The truth is, growing up in a Church, there was a point in my life where I thought it was wrong. “I think people should be able to live their lives however they want. “I just think that sex can be something really special, if people choose to make it special.
I’m not just talking about politically conservative: I’m talking about conservative anything. I just don’t think it’s the right choice for me.” “Because it’s wrong? And I want that to be something special that I share only with my life partner.” I have to say, I was pretty proud of the explanation when it left my mouth. “I think you’re putting too much emphasis on it,” my date says.
If you dress in a conservative business sense to work, you might find yourself labelled a ‘stiff’ or a ‘suit.’ If you have conservative taste in food (e.g. Thank you for that opinion, man I’ve known for four dates and who kisses like a beached walrus looking for water. I just said, “Well, I guess we have a difference of opinion,” he said. These bad responses have often led me to a crucial question: do I tell my dates right away (and in no uncertain terms) that I’m not planning on having sex with them?
So, I interviewed another group of conservative women to find out some of their best and worst dating stories, to see if there’s a difference between dating conservative and liberal men, and just to get a little of the dating advice that people seem to be so interested in. My buddy Skye, who blogs at Midnight Blue and Flopping Aces is a charming, cultured, conservative Democrat, who lives and blogs in Philadelphia.
Since she had told me a few interesting dating stories over the last few months — when she wasn’t trying to talk me into watching horrible French films — I thought she’d be a great addition to this piece. I don’t hide my political point of view and quite frankly, it kind of weeds out liberals, so I don’t have to bother with them. I can’t speak for everybody; I am looking at how they talk to strangers, how they treat people they don’t know, how they’re conducting themselves, how they walk, how they carry themselves…. …I met this guy who was a very nice guy, we had met online, and he told me…that he was a diehard conservative.
