About Me

Really glad to be in my 70's--the future is going to be rough for the folks who are young now. Just my opinion.

Advice on potential new friend?

I live in Trumpistan. The vast majority of people in this town are GOP trumpers, blaming Biden for everything. I lost several friends back in 2017-2018 because I could not be around people whose values and morals differed so much from mine. I've missed having friends. I have connected with someone local (not a person from here, been here about a year) regarding something I was selling, and via online chat we got along well. We are meeting to browse an antique shop next week. I know she is religious, which I am not, but I have no problem with that as long as it is not pushed on me. I have no idea how to handle it if she spouts some anti-Biden trumper crap. I will not be friends with one of them, period. But what do I do if she does that? Claim to have a headache and leave? Sound like an intolerant human and say "Ok, this will not work out" and leave? Or let it go, leave as soon as possible and what? Ghost her? I have lived for years with no local friends and while I would love to have one again, I will not just overlook a GOP perspective, it's repugnant to me. Any thoughts on what to do if she "comes out" as a MAGAt when we get together for a fun and simple shopping trip?
