What do your politics say about your love life? Andy and Tim posit that “voting Remain says: I’m open minded, I don’t mind immigrants, and I might even take you to Paris one day.” They could have a large potential user base, as 48 percent of British voters elected to remain in the European Union while 52 percent voted to leave.
This crop of political-themed dating sites might overstate the role politics actually play in the search for love. In Match’s annual Singles in America survey, 79 percent of singles said they don’t have a problem dating someone of another political party. Only 6 percent of those in the 5,000-person survey said it was essential that their partner held the same political beliefs.
Andy and Tim, however, are circumspect. “Relationships between Remain and Leave voters are possible, but it requires a lot of understanding,” they wrote. “It’s like if one person is into role play.”
Funny guys, those two. And perhaps that’s the more important factor here. A shared sense of humor is a far better indicator of relationship success than having similar politics.
