If not, I hear there are some online dating services that sort people by political views, and I think there may even be some for liberals only? Even if nothing serious comes of it, you might find it fun to exchange flirtatious notes with someone for a while? (Assuming you even want to have anything to do with anyone right now. If not, it's completely understandable. :hug

It was a strong indication of what kind of disrespect he would show you in the future. Your political outlook was not his to change or control. Control freaks are always bad matches for any woman. It's an ominous sign for a relationship. Here's hoping you find someone who respects your point of view.

(I'm female, Freddie is a cat)
Many years ago I briefly dated a guy with some pretty Neanderthal ideas about women. The more I got to know him, I realized how ingrained this was. When I dumped him he was totally shocked and had no idea why I would find his viewpoint offensive! Probably beating his wife somewhere as we speak.
For me, this was a learning experience; I didn't realize that I was a feminist or liberal until that experience cleared it up.
Consider this a learning experience.

Even enjoyed Ian Pundette, but George Nooray kinda rubs me the wrong way. I wonder if it's because he is a RW wacko. Has had some of the RW lunatics on a few times like Jerome Corsi, and occasionally the talk turns political and he is definitely a RW'er. I think Art Bell was too, but he never really let it be obvious. But if C2C has an interesting topic, I might listen, it puts me to sleep anyway.

Art said that he normally doesn't talk about politics and then proceeded to say he voted for Obama.

I think Art has more "depth" than the typical crazy RW.

A little conservative on some issues. Liberal on others.

If he can't comfort and be there for you and have your back, you're better off on your own where you can find someone else if you want to.

To quote Marilyn Monroe in The Misfits: "If I'm gonna be alone, I'd rather be by myself."

You go, girl! It took guts and you did it. Congrats and kudos!

I find I can't deal with RWingers anymore, especially when they start regurgitating Heritage Foundation talking points and when I point out that they are being lied to, they won't admit it even when I present them with facts and figures. I figured out for my sanity that I have to cut them loose. The last RWinger I dated was so racist I had to cut our second date short cause I couldn't stand to listen to him anymore.
