Conservatives much better at dating than liberals, survey says
It’s a Grand Old Party — especially if you’re single.
Conservatives are much better at dating than liberals, according to a new survey by the over-50 dating app Lumen.
The company found that right-wingers are more direct than their left-wing counterparts. They clearly state to potential lovers what they are looking for in terms of life and romance, according to the findings.
They also value family and friendships higher than liberals and have a smaller, more intimate group of friends. By contrast, liberals tend to thrive in larger social groups. But left-leaners have their advantages, too — they are generally carefree and more fun than conservatives. And they’re more inclined to explore and travel the world than those who lean right, Lumen found.
Unsurprisingly, people who share the same political opinions flock together like birds of a feather.
Conservative women are twice as likely to chat with their right-wing peers than to initiate a conversation with their liberal counterparts, according to the survey. Left-wing women are similarly set in their ways, as are liberal lads, who are three times more likely to chat with fellow liberals than conservatives.
Lumen made the findings after analysing data from its 1.5 million user base.
The survey comes after The Post reported that dating can be difficult if you back Donald Trump, especially in blue cities such as New York and Los Angeles.
