Wild Date with the REPUBLICAN if only I could remember his name.

It is interesting how a change of direction can create major life changes. I haven't dated for a few years and suddenly I've exchanged phone numbers with a few gentlemen. This evening I received a phone call from Mr. B who I met at Republican Campaign Headquarters. He asked me if I wanted to go to dinner. Dang! I couldn't remember his first name. I could remember his birthday and the names of his ancestors but I couldn't remember his name. I only had enough time to get dressed for the date. I had his name in my computer but no time to open it up.

He arrived at my doorstep so I called him, Mr. Gorgeous. He asked me where I wanted to go. I asked him if he like home cooking or exotic adventure. He liked it all. I suggested that we drive to Lewisburg and see what we could find there. It used to be that I would cast a man's astrological chart and tell him all about himself. Instead I was able to tell him about his family history. Dang, I couldn't remember his name so I called him Mr. Cutie.

We arrived in Lewisburg and he asked about Shoney's. Blah! Trough Feeding. I was looking for someplace semi-romantic so I suggested Carlito's. When we arrived we were seated near the television so he got to watch college football. The Mountaineers beat Texas so it was all good.

He asked me what I like to do for fun. Political activism and opera. So we have a date for the Opera The MET Live in HD: Saturday at 12:45. Marnie, it's an adaption of an Alfred Hitchcock movie. I usually go to Operas by myself but it will be interesting to go with a companion. I am not sure how he would feel about my political activism but keeping company with the GOP has been a good change for me. I would have never found a date at the Woman's Democrat Club.

Who would have thought something so simple as changing your political party would lead to something like this? Republican men are more fun - except for the Kennedy boys. They were a lot of fun, or so I hear.

When Dubya Bush got in trouble, Daddy Bush chided him "What do you think you are,? A Kennedy!" After that Junior minded his P & Q's. He was told to be more like Jeb. "Jeb could become President!"

When I was first dating Joe, we watched Rigaletto on his TV and I told one of my resident's husband about it. When his wife's doctor came in to see her, the man told the doctor that I was dating a man that liked opera and I had actually watched one with him on TV.
The doctor laughed, and told me that I sure must like the guy to sit through opera with him! (He would go to the opera with his wife, although he didn't care for it.)
So, I guess he must like you.


Life's short. Be sure you spend your time on the internet, arguing with strangers over politics.

The Republican Party- where men are men, and women are glad of it.

You see when you dont make everything about " women's issues" you can have fun. When you aren't worrying about " fighting the patriarchy" you find the patriarchy worth hanging with.

I have seen never a more depressed, unhappy, intolerant, and clueless bunch than Far Left women, which is becoming more and more the norm in the Democratic Party. If you are a man, you have to subjugate yourself to a shrill bunch of Me First, you men do what you are told, harpies. Consequently, for the women who are left of the old Democratic Party, the pickings are slim. Until you come over to the sunny side of the street.

LOL! Republican men are definitely more interesting than Democrat women. I have keeping company with the GOP for a month - I've already exchange phone numbers with two and have a second date with one of them. SWEET!!!!!

Good Bye Demos!!!!!!

Maybe Mr. Republican will feel appreciated since I sat through a date while he was watching a football game. I wasn't facing the television but it was interesting watching all the folks cheering for the Mountaineers as they beat Texas in the last 10 minutes of the game.

    Wow, that sounds like a fun date......Only interesting, attentive, fun-loving men watch TV sports on the first date........
ACTUALLY, it was fun watching all the other folks cheer on the Mountaineers. I will probably be attending a few football games now that I am keeping company with the GOP. He opened the car door for me , paid for the dinner and we talked politics when he wasn't watching football and we have a SECOND date. It sure beats hanging out with the DEMOS who were protesting in front of the Greenbrier in the snow because Trump is coming to town.

I had a fun date once that comes to mind.
I met a woman from a dating site, and she spent more time talking to a guy she knew at the next table than me.

    Quoting sparkleflit:
    That would be very uncomfortable. I've had some odd dates with men I met on dating sites......usually because they weren't honest in their profiles. One man was very rude to me and it turned out we had met before and he had contacted me because he recognized me and thought it would be a fun surprise for me when he showed up. I didn't recognize him and he felt insulted, so he was very unpleasant towards me. I just thought he was a jerk until months later when I suddenly remembered our first meeting......
I have given up on the dating sites including this one. I survived two potential relationships from hell from the dunderheads that I met on SFF. I met an abundance of jerks from POF. I had not dated in 5 years figuring my time in more valuable. I lucked out last night. All because I started keeping company with the deplorables.

All Trump supporters can be labeled "Republican".. whether they call themselves that or not... But all Republicans are not Trump supporters..
All Democrat women aren't socialists or Femi-nazis.. but all socialists and femi-nazi are Democrats.. even if they don't label themselves that way.

I would prefer NOT to date a Trump supporter or a socialist... Even though a preference should not be based on a political "label"....but I have TOTAL aversion to Trump supporters.. not on an ideological base... but on the basis of communication.. on the basis of ideas and reasoning.. It's just not going to work for me, and it's not going to work for them either.
Maybe you think. it's the same both ways.. but that not the way i see it... I don't wish to be agreed with..in fact, that doesn't work for me either.. I find Trump supporter unwilling to ACKNOWLEDGE different ideas,, and I am full of different ideas. Not acknowledging those ideas.. means they are NOT acknowledging ME...I, on the other hand, will ACKNOWLEDGE their limited ideas.. agreement is not a necessity. In fact for me, the disagreement and the way you disagree is a necessity.

    Quoting sparkleflit:
    I gave up on dating sites too, I never got past a first date with any of the men I met that way, but it wasn't because they were jerks, but because we didn't fit. .......I can't, however imagine your situation. I've been involved politically since I was in high school and went door to door stumping for my candidate.......I have been thinking about politics all my life, thinking about the consequences, getting involved.

    There is no way I could just switch my deeply held beliefs one day......I have been living in close proximity to, been in community with, have fought for some issues along with those who have different politics than me. Their children went to the same schools as my children, we go to the same doctors, to many of the same gatherings, work for the same boss...I love lots of people who vote differently than me.

    I don't understand your world at all, where political factions are so divided that they live in separate realities as they seem to in your world.
Amazing how once you come to the fence to speak to your neighbor, we find out just how much you have in common.

Changes don't happen in just one day, they can occur over a period of time. I attended Quaker Meetings for ten years before deciding to make it official. Politically, I can accomplish a lot more as a Quaker than I could as a Wiccan Minister. I still light candles, leave a jade plant on a ladder on my porch (for prosperity) hang fairy mirrors on the balcony, and light candles in my home. Quakers are historically activist which makes my heart do a happy dance.

I have been considering a political party change for a few years. I still support many of the same issues that I did as a Democrat but politically, I can be more effective as a Republican. I am not sending Trump love letters but I don't have to hate him either. Nor do I have to hate Obama just because I changed political parties.
