ava321 Posted August 13, 2008 Share Posted August 13, 2008 I am wondering if anyone out there has been in a successful, happy relationship with someone who holds very different political beliefs (from international policies/abortion/gay rights/government services/you name it...) then you I began dating someone about 4 1/2 months ago, who I like very much.. We have a great time, and he is very loving and caring. But we see things so differently, and some of his beliefs I find really unsettling and to be frank, upsetting. He is less involved with these issues then me, and is not so bothered by my views. I admire his tolerance and acceptance of my viewpoint but am having a really hard time reciprocating these sentiments, but in my heart realize what a wonderful guy he is and want to get over my intolerance... but sometimes I really wonder: if our outlooks on these issues are so vastly different, how compatible are we really? Any advice would be really appreciated...Thanks Link to comment
