THE POLITICS OF LOVE: CHOOSING A PARTNER BASED ON PARTY

For better or for worse, we're finding out more and more people are using politics as the deciding factor when choosing a mate.

What's important to you in a love partner? An avid traveler? Must love dogs? Or sharing your same feelings about President Donald Trump?
For better or for worse, we're finding out more and more people are relying on the latter to choose a mate and if they don't it can potentially cause big problems.
A poll conducted by dating company It’s Just Lunch, showed:

50 percent of singles think dating someone with opposite political views was fine for the short-term, but not for the long-haul.
63 percent said they only date people who have similar political opinions and beliefs.
Therapist Juan Santos with Santos Counseling says couples already in a relationship are coming to him more than ever to help resolve issues stemming from politics. “If they don’t know how to communicate over this political issue then a relationship can go from a very nourished relationship to one where they’re looking at separation, they’re looking at divorce,” he said. Although it’s difficult, he says couples need to agree to disagree about politics like they do about other issues.

He suggests looking for a partner with similar political views, but Berzack encourages her clients to keep an open mind. “I do not believe that people should use their political agenda as an important part of their finding love,” she told us. She says when people meet organically at an activity or party, they're more likely to give someone a chance before knowing every detail about them. “Sometimes people think they know what they want and then they meet it in real life and they realize that everything they thought they wanted is out the window and that’s the really awesome part about meeting people in real life and off the computer,” Berzack said.

In 2010, Heleen Devos, a native of Belgium who works in corporate social responsibility and communications for a French energy company, was heading to Cuba for a United Nations climate change conference.

“I had seen him and found him handsome,” Ms. Devos said dreamily of a Chilean in her row. Yet she was unsure of his relationship with the older woman next to him.

Easy and Fun Ways to Meet Guys This Fall (Even Though 'Cuffing Season' Isn't a Thing)

Now is the perfect time to meet men.

By Taylor Davies

Earlier this summer, the New York Times published a story about a Harvard Business School study which suggested people who spend money to save time (rather than spending time to save money) are generally happier. Those who outsource tasks they dislike, like cleaning, accounting, or ordering in dinner rather than cooking, reported “greater overall life satisfaction.”

So if dating and dating apps make you feel stressed, frustrated and exhausted—why not try outsourcing the work to an expert? ….It’s Just Lunch will do all the legwork for you, setting you up with dates that are carefully selected for potential compatibility.

By Hayley Matthews

Oftentimes, staying healthy and looking attractive are one in the same. The desire to attract a partner can be a strong motivating factor to watch what you eat or go to the gym every week. Maybe an active dating life is the best medicine. Studies seem to support the idea that many daters feel motivated to stay fit when in a relationship or looking to get in a relationship.

It’s Just Lunch, a matchmaking firm for busy professionals, gave us a look at their own internal insights on the subject. The team’s “Dating, Dining, and Push-Ups” survey investigated the link between healthy habits and dating, and the results are striking.
