We have seen the future, and it sucks.

The Perils of Dating in the Time of Trump

2nd March 2017

Read it.

It sure would seem that way. Jenny, 26, from New Orleans, was outspoken against President Trump. She says she wouldn’t date a Trump supporter, because there would be “fundamental differences in the values we hold most important.” If she were in the middle of a good first date and found out the guy was a Trump fan, she’d “try and finish the evening like nothing was wrong — but definitely wouldn’t make concrete plans for a second date.”

Not everyone manages to hold it together as well. Peter, 41, in Midtown East has gotten dramatic reactions from dates when he mentions he’s a Trump supporter. “One stormed out,” he said. Another “just shut down and stared into space.” He describes sitting next to women who are drinking $30 glasses of wine and talking about their upcoming Vermont ski trips — while also discussing their fear that America has become Nazi Germany.

It’s murder out there. The solution, of course, is not to associate with proglodytes.
