"The best sex I've ever had was with a guy who I'm fairly sure was a Republican," 30-year-old Democrat Jen Winston told the outlet. "If I had known he was a Republican, I probably would not have engaged. But if I had known how good the sex was gonna be, I probably would have gone through with it still."

/maybe the Republican was a huge prick?

Wait, I think I've heard this before.  They can't breed, so they have to recruit.  I was a good moral Boomer, but one day I'm in this truck stop bathroom, and this Millennial talks me into putting avocado on my toast.  "What's the harm?" he says.  "Try it just this once."  Next thing I know, I'm ruining old media.

Its not politics I prioritize, its civil rights.

Back when it was as simple as 'Bush or Gore?' it wasn't an issue (though perhaps that says more about me than it does about politics in the 90s and early 2000s).

Now we've got a political party who wants to roll back civil rights for LGBTQ, minorities, immigrants, and women.

Why the f*ck would I date someone on board with that?  Can you imagine how that sort of thinking would filter into every day life?  I'm supposed to build a life with someone who thinks 8chan has some really good points?  Who might suddenly start rationalizing children being kidnapped by the U.S. government to punish parents for applying for asylum?

I've done a lot of stupid things in my life.  Some of those things were f*cking a**holes.  I'm not falling for that sh*t again.

I would like to meet a non-conservative liberal lady in the area that I live in... who is unmarried and interested in fellows.

But, I live in Missouri, so... yes, the dating scene is something that does not exist.  I am a late Gen-Xer... and I will say this: for the last twenty years or so, I have considered dating conservative ladies... it takes exactly one date with one before I realize my religion does not allow suicide, and to go back to the search for the elusive liberal lass.

As a millennial, let me say that my wife and I aren't having kids because... why the hell would we want to bring any more humans into this POS place? Seriously, we humans are destroying our planet, our country, etc. Why would I want to voluntarily bring more life into that?

/This isn't uncommon among my age group of friends either. I have many more friends in their mid 30's with no kids than have kids.

Gee why don't liberal women want to sleep with paleo-conservative guys who treat them like property, that's only good for cleaning, cooking and making babies?

Probably because dating someone who thinks women shouldn't even *have* opinions or viewpoints, and doesn't listen even if they *do* have them is a *yuuugggeee* turnoff.
 
2019-03-25 12:05:52 PM  
Probably that and nothing to do with higher college loan debt that people are burdened with along with stagnant job wages, not to mention the high cost and limited housing opportunities that have made it less economical to start or support a family.

Or maybe it's the politics thing.

It doesn't usually take so long for someone to demand that everyone else use their definition of millennial. Second post this time. Quite an improvement. Also bats aren't bugs.

And even the latest Millennials were largely born to later Boomers or early-mid Xers. Millennials birthing Millennials were those relatively uncommon teen pregnancies in the late 90s, maybe early 2000s.

Millennials? hell, I do that. I'm do that and I'm 52.

I cannot date stupid women, Tried Tinder once, ended up on a date w/ a Trumper soccer mom. We had a political argument until she called me a socialist and stormed out.

I'm far from being a millennial, but if my GF started talking politics I'd probably leave her.

Social media has whipped up a political frenzy.  They're really not that important to your day to day existence.  They will change.  And change back.  And change.  And change back.  And there's not a lot you can do about it other than to vote.
 
2019-03-25 12:08:54 PM  
I wouldn't care dating someone of other political beliefs but when it is all consuming of them and all you do is hear them parrot back the latest talking points it gets old real quick.
And like weddingsinger said when one group is out to destroy civil rights and a lot of our sacred democratic institutions then I would tell them to get out...............after some disappointing sex.

That's poor logic, given the existence of adoption.

You just don't want a child. That's perfectly fine.

I don't think anybody ever wanted to date complete assholes.

Now that the complete assholes have come together in the Republican Party, we still don't want to date them.

If you get bit by a Millennial, you'll slowly transform into one. It'll start with growing tattoos in weird places and culminate in a bloodlust for Applebee's and plastic straws. Then there will no humanity left, just Justin Bieber.

So after you refuse to have sex with all the women who really, really wanted you, then you complain about being an Incel right?
 
2019-03-25 12:12:54 PM  
In other words, Millennials have their priorities straight. Learning how to please a partner in bed is not that complicated. Actually living together without driving each other crazy is the part that takes work.

I'd like to have a kid (and adopt a second), but the last decade of my life - bouncing from one un/under-employment to the next every year or so and racking up about a year's worth of debt in the process - makes it rather difficult.

I'm 38, so the window's rapidly closing. Don't wanna be chasing a toddler around when I'm 50.
