Online dating services comparison consumer reports
Heather Wilkerson, a single Democrat in Iowa, wears her political feelings on her sleeve, literally."My profile picture on the dating sites I am on is very, very liberal," Wilkerson said."I am wearing a shirt with a cat holding a gun, captioned 'Watch out Donald, this one’s armed!If you're single and actively dating, this year's Valentine's Day may have been your crummiest yet.And not for the usual reasons like lack of chemistry or the person being nothing like their profile promised — but because of whom they voted for, and what political positions they support.
"People feel so strongly and as a result, their ideologies might be hard to contain.
Every so often I do get some words of encouragement, but those are few and far between."It's pretty discouraging stuff, but Wilkerson isn't giving up and neither should you.
Unless you really do feel better off just taking a break from it all for a while.
Earlier this month, the dating service Coffee Meets Bagel surveyed 1,320 users and found that the majority of singles say politics are impacting their quest for love.
Seventy percent of single Democrats said that politics are affecting their dating life "slightly" to "profoundly," compared with 55 percent of single Independents, and 43 percent of single Republicans.
