It’s Such A Loser Move To Claim Politics Are Ruining Your Dating Life

You’re a complete clown if you use your politics as a crutch for why you’re not meeting women.

The Washingtonian recently published a piece outlining the woes of conservative men trying to date in Washington D.C., which traditionally consists of mostly liberal people.

There are two major parts of this story that are outrageous. The first one is below:

“The political divide has gotten so wide that a lot of younger liberals don’t have any interest in meeting conservatives,” says a reporter at a conservative media company. Working for a right-wing publication is such an obstacle to dating in DC, he doesn’t put his employer on any dating apps and avoids talking about it until meeting someone face-to-face, he says.

The other main part is about a dude complaining about how a woman left his apartment because of the books he had. I’m not making that up. It’s actually in there:

He once brought a woman back to his place, and while checking out his bookshelf, she noticed some books by conservative thinkers, he says. “She was like, ‘Oh no. First question: Did you vote for Trump?’,” the reporter says. He told her no, but that he was conservative. “She was like ‘I have to get out of here. I can’t see you,’ and left.”

Men, please do not be like these guys. Don’t do it. There are certainly women out there who won’t sleep with you because of your political views, but it’s not the only reason.

The first guy above is such a beta that he won’t even put where he works on a dating app. Are you kidding me? Do you think women want men who feel the need to hide what they love or who they are? Hell no they don’t.

Don’t even get me started on guy number two. He brought a woman into his apartment and then claims she left because she noticed a book. My bullcrap detector is going through the roof right now. She didn’t leave over a book if this story is true. She was clearly just looking for any excuse to leave. Something has gone terribly wrong if a woman in your house or apartment you brought home has enough time to be searching your bookshelves. You’ve entered a disaster zone, and you’re probably not getting out.

Look, I’m just like every other guy. I shoot my shot all the time. Sometimes I fail miserably and every three or four percent of the time it doesn’t go too poorly. Guess what? I’ve never once blamed politics for not getting a woman to spend time with me. You can blame a variety of different reasons for why you’re failing with women, but you’re just lazy if you’re blaming politics.
