In today’s world, someone may have a need to find out what someone else’s political views are before they are willing to take things further. Whether they lean left or right, it will make a big difference.
However, if someone is using an online dating app, they might not even wait that long. In this case, they can find out before taking things further, and this will save them a lot of time.
A big problem
One is going to believe that someone else’s political opinions are incredibly important, and then it is not possible for them to overlook this area of life when it comes to finding a mate. As a result of this, it might not matter if they meet someone who meets all of your other requirements.
There is a possibility that you also have friends who are like this, and this could mean that some of your friends will be in a relationship with someone who has the same views as them. However, even if you’re not looking for a relationship and just want something pretty casual, you can still look for someone who has the same perspective as them.
You could say that it is important that someone has the same perspective as them because of how important politics is. Based on this, one is likely to spend a lot of time researching this area of life.
The kinds of newspapers they read, for example, are likely to lean on the side of the political spectrum that they do. Perhaps you have the same political views as your parents, or perhaps your time in the educational system has defined your perspective.
noir et blanc
One could still be in college or university, this being an environment that is more likely to be in favor of the left than the right. And, if you want someone to have the same opinion as them, this can also mean that you think they are right.
So it’s not that they’re closed-minded and unwilling to consider someone else’s point of view; no, it’s that your point of view is the only acceptable point of view. With this in mind, it will be natural for them to ‘disagree’ or ignore someone who has a different view of them, or to end a date or not see someone again if they have a different view.
This will be similar to someone who only dates people who support the same sports team or who like the same type of dogs. Now, you could say that these examples are much more trivial.
These kinds of things are generally not going to have much of an effect on whether two people will get along. But while someone’s political opinions may be considered important, it doesn’t mean they always are.
Following the crowd
Let’s say you only lean left or right, from what your friends or teachers have told you, for example. Consequently, they will not have taken the time to come to their own conclusions.
Then one can meet someone who has a different view of them and reject them, preventing their own views from being questioned. Alternatively, if one listens to what he has to say, his perspective might change.
They might describe themselves as open-minded and even tolerant, but this will not be the whole truth. It could be more accurate to say that they will be open to hearing what people have to say if they have the same views as they do, and this is something they will tolerate.
If so, you are ill-prepared for a working relationship. Part of being in a relationship with another person involves being able to empathize with them and respect their views and opinions.
from one side to another
Clearly, you don’t want to be with someone you have absolutely nothing in common with, but that doesn’t mean the alternative is to end up with someone who’s exactly the same. If you want someone who always agrees with them and therefore does not challenge them, you can also get a cat or a dog.
What is also part of a relationship is being able to discuss things in a mature way, and this does not mean closing down or losing all self-control. With this in mind, it might be much better for one to look for someone who is open-minded and willing to have their views questioned than to find someone who has the same political views as them, and this means that they it will also have to be the same.
This will not only allow them to speak out about their own political opinions and grow; it will also allow them to talk about all areas of life and grow mentally, emotionally and even spiritually. You could end up with someone who has the same views as they do when it comes to politics, but that doesn’t mean they will have a satisfying relationship; especially if this person hasn’t even thought about what they believe.
When you are with someone who has the same views as them, you can allow them to be right. This is something the mind desires more than anything else; as far as the mind is concerned, to be wrong is to die.
However, in order for one to grow and develop, one will have to accept that being wrong is part of life. By accepting this and realizing that being wrong will not make you die, it could allow you to be more open and tolerant.
