If you take a stroll through the relationship section of your local bookstore and randomly pull a book from the shelf…
Or if you search google for a few helpful hints on what to talk about on a first date…
You’ll undoubtedly find some variation of the following advice:
“Never talk about politics or religion on a first date”
In my latest video I break down three reasons why this is terrible advice, and why breaking traditional dating “rules” like this could be the best thing you ever do.
Can you think of a time when you broke a dating rule and it actually worked out in your favor?
Leave a comment below the video and share your story!
P.S – Conversations around sensitive topics like politics can leave both men and women very emotionally charged.
If you’re interested in discovering how to take his emotions and use them to your advantage… get my Emotional Attraction Formula right here.
1. Your Politics Are a General Reflection of Your Personal Values
If one person in a relationship is just a little bit more politically fiscally conservative than the other, you can generally assume that it’s a reflection of their own life.
Getting a general idea of someone else political viewpoints will help you understand the situation a little more clearly.
It’s better to discover deal-breakers like this on the first date. It will save you a ton of time down the road.
2. Finding Political Commonalities Will Bond You Closer
Finding political commonalities will sometimes create an even deeper emotional bond.
Of course, when you’re on a date you don’t have to agree on everything, but when you do find things in common it might actually connect you even more.
One thing that Jess and I found as we got to know each other a little bit better is that we’re environmentalists.
This has been a common bond for us over the years of getting to know each other.
If you are on a date and you’re struggling to find things in common, then perhaps talking about your views on things actually might be that common thread that connects you two on a deeper level.
3. Even If You Disagree, You Might Learn Something New
When you’re single and dating, it’s actually a rare time in life when you’ll be able to meet so many different types of people.
I’m not saying you always need to agree with people, but it’s good to be able to use this time in your life as an opportunity to learn more about people that are just different than you.
Once enter into a committed relationship and get married, you’re not going to have the opportunity to meet as many people as you’re meeting right now.
Take advantage of this opportunity and have an open ear.
Heck, you might learn something.
Maybe it won’t be a fit romantically, but who knows?
You’ll at least get to walk away with a new perspective.
Do you agree or do you disagree? Is there room for politics on a first date?
