Best online dating site for new yorkers
It’s your typical midtown Manhattan happy-hour crowd: Groups of co-workers with buckets of beer, a family of tourists and a couple at the bar enjoying the tense chemistry of a successful-looking early date.
A man who asked to remain anonymous had been happily dating his girlfriend for almost three years, until “that nice little Tuesday on November 8th.” He didn’t much care about politics until this election.
Although he’s a Democrat, he says he would have voted for John Kasich if he had won the Republican nomination.
Earlier this year, the dating web site Ok Cupid tested that theory by asking members if they stood with Planned Parenthood (a non-profit organization that provides reproductive and other health care services to women and is a frequent target of Republicans who seek to cut funding to the organization even though public money isn't used to pay for abortions.) New York responded with 90% of people supporting the organization and gaining an #IStand With PP badge, according to Melissa Hoble, the site’s chief marketing officer, who said it was a means of connecting users.
“In today’s political climate, we think it’s important to focus on unity, not division,” she said.
It wasn’t the best date she’d ever been on, but not the worst (this is New York after all).
But at first mention of her support for President Donald Trump, her Tinder match mentally checked out.
“One Planned Parenthood supporter isn’t exactly the same as another person who supports Planned Parenthood—they may even belong to different political parties.
But if they both feel the same way about it, it can be a means of connecting on a deeper, more meaningful level.” Single New Yorkers aren’t the only ones navigating relationships in the Trump era.
She has a photo of her at Trump’s inauguration on her dating profile.
“I decided that I did want to put it in there because I wasn’t being honest about it.
Still jubilant about Trump’s election, Lagana’s politics are seeping into the conversations he has with dates.
