Political discussions are more intense than they have been in years. With the country divided, a war on, a president that is either loved or hated, political discussions are more dangerous to a new relationship than they ever have been.
Just 15 years ago people beginning to date didn’t concern themselves with the political affiliation of their dates. But these days politics is a hot button for many people and it can sink a new relationship faster than the iceberg did the Titanic. Yes, your heart will go on…but you may miss out on a great person just because you see things a little differently.
Serious ideological discussion are best left to later in a relationships when mutual respect and friendship will help you keep it all in perspective. Enjoy the season but skip the debate.
