Basically reposting from another subreddit, as I figured this one was actually active so it would be of more help. Anyways.
I was wondering if you guys have had any experience or tips in dating within the gay/lesbian community (while holding political views that differ from the “norm”). Personally, one girl that I've dated has stopped associating herself with me after she learned of my support for the Republican party, and another agreed to go on a date with me, and then left early after a discussion we held about abortion (that she brought up). That one hurt more, as we had talked a lot beforehand, and I thought the date was going smoothly.
I live in a very liberal town, and ironically, acceptance of being gay is easier to come by than acceptance of someone who isn't a strongly left-leaning Democrat. Sucks sometimes.
For those that may be in a similar situation, how has finding girls to date/sustaining these relationships gone? Do you just keep your political thoughts hidden? Do you only date other conservatives?
Thanks to all.
TL;DR I don’t mind dating liberal girls, but they don’t like dating me.
