Why progressive women want to date
men who act like conservatives

Original Article

My friend Mark, 36, is a “catch” by many New York City standards. He’s good-looking, highly educated, and a talented photographer. He’s also progressive and participates in protests and gives to left-leaning causes. And Mark is looking for love. He wants to get married and have kids. In a liberal city like New York, swimming with single women wishing they weren’t, one could assume Mark wouldn’t have a problem finding a mate. And while he dates and recently had a couple of short-lived relationships, Mark remains single. He’s trying to understand why.

Comments:

IMO most women like attention from a man with a good sense of humor. Most liberal men can't meet that standard.

But why would a conservative man want a liberal female? Dating I get, they’re easy. But marriage? That’s a recipe for disaster.

He’s probably looking in all the wrong places. First, relax. Stop considering yourself to be a great catch. Stop “looking” - you’re not shopping for a car. As for “progressive” women, the protests he likes to participate in will attract them, not the more conservative (may I say “normal”?) women. They just won’t be interested in you. Try church. Seriously. Normal women still go to church. As for me, if I were a young single woman in NYC or anywhere else, I wouldn’t touch him with a ten foot pole. He sounds much too self-centered to be much of a catch.

Once they snag a conservative man, these leftist witches spend all their time haranguing their spouse about leftist causes and turn the weaker ones into neutered wimps.

Ted Olson comes to mind after losing his beloved Barbara on September 11. The new wife did a job on him, I'm guessing.

if you walking on the curb side or paying for dinner triggers her, run don't walk. otherwise the rest of your life will be trying to not trigger her and that isn't going to be possible. paying for one dinner and bailing is a lot cheaper than giving her half your stuff after a couple years of "wedded bliss"

I would not be comfortable dating some leftist chick. They might be smoking hot (most aren’t). Maybe have some good times for awhile but never, ever consider marrying one.

I agree with OP: Usually high on the list of what woman want is a man that can male them smile and laugh. Liberals have no sense of humor because they are always "offended" by something. I would NOT date a liberal woman. I'd rather be alone.

Hmm. If a woman is a "progressive", I'd never ask her out, or if I did in error, would stop calling as soon as I found out. Sorry.....'progressives' have way too much baggage and bizarre ideas. But.....I've been happily married for well over 40 years so what I think doesn't make the slightest difference to some young woman looking for a hubby. But I know conservative young men, and I doubt that they are looking for lefty women, either. Too 'high maintenance'. Why would they want the grief?

“If I pay for dinner, it signals I don’t value my date as my equal so I’m super casual about it all. If she wants to pay or split it or whatever, that’s fine with me.” When liberal women want a pu$$y, they date women, not a "man" who's super casual about his pu$$ydom . . . or whatever.

What's wrong Mark? You're a progressive that likes protest gatherings. I'm sure you'll find a green haired lady with a nose and lip rings, facial "DEVIL" tattoos, and a tattoo on both forearms that says - Arm Wrestle You For A Beer". Don't be concerned about her IQ, she likes to party day and night. Should be paradise in NYC.

Funny this article is describing my very liberal sister. She is on her third relationship in her life (first husband was a divorce and the second passed away after 30+ years.) All of the men have been older strong men who take care of her. And conservative. She’s always been pretty with a great body and even though she is older now her figure is still curvy in all the right places. I agree with the other posters - a great body doesn’t make up for liberal beliefs but I now have known 3 men who disagree. Whatever.

No no no stay away! As a mom of a marriageable aged man, my good Southern Conservative momma advice is, Conservative men, don't. It's a trap. Don't put a ring on it!! Be equally yoked, in religion as in politics. SHE will be birthing and raising your babies. Frivorce and the hell of custody is your future with a bat guano crazy lib female.

I could never marry anyone whose values were so different from my own. Sane women want strong men who will care for and protect them and their children. They don’t want panty-waist metrosexuals and progressive men tend to be either that or thugs. And if you haven’t noticed, the women at these protests tend to by ugly, fat lesbians who are always ranting about “toxic masculinity”, so he won’t find a mate there. My husband of 40 years has always walked curbside. He also opens and holds doors for me and walks through them with his hand on my lower back in case I slip or stumble. Our daughter’s fiancé asked our permission a full 2 years before he actually proposed. And she will take his name when they marry. Her future sister in law and best friend has a plaque in her home which says, “He stole my heart so I took his name”. See, there is hope for the future! Finally, if Mark starts dating “like a conservative” he’s a fraud and whomever he dates will hopefully find out before the wedding.

The bottom line is simple. Women, even those that identify as liberal, still want a real man for a relationship. That pretty much leaves out all the soyboys.

You don't 'act' like a conservative. You either live the lifestyle of conservatism, or you are a poser and will be quickly found out. Women like confident, strong men, and are generally repulsed by soy boys.

It is an oil and water situation for anyone with sincerely held views of life. If one does not see the conflict, they must not hold to any views very tightly. If a young man naively thought that all women want a weak man, because they listened to those women who are prone to run their mouths constantly....get ready for a long sad life.

I live, work, date, in and near San Francisco. EVERY woman I've met and dated is pretty far left. I do not ever hide my views but I don't spend all day telling them why their philosophy and belief structure is ridiculous, either. I do point out stories in the news where there's a clear example of their belief system destroying innocent lives, or freakish things like men walking around naked in women's gyms naked in front of children. Over time every single one has shifted her views varying degrees towards reality. One even said out of the blue one day, "I never thought I could fall in love with a conservative!" (Said in a non-ironic and positive way). The problem with these women is men like this wimp loser who spends all his time trying to behave how he thinks they want him to behave instead of just being a real man. Of course they don't want him. He is what they say they want. Not what they really want. Poor dummy for suckered by leftist garbage fake culture.

The article says more than once that "instinctive mate preferences have evolved for hundreds of thousands of years," suggesting the fad for wimpy men won't stand up to it. I agree, and I'll bet the family cow that "male and female He created them" will outlast multiple "genderism" too.

Apology for the second post but I really think most women want a stable and decent provider even if they are nowhere near Cary Grant looks (boy, that dates me). It means at least financial protection. It’s why you see extremely attractive women marrying men like George Soros who as far as looks go could scare s*** off a shovel. Money, power...listen to the Eagles’ song “lying’ Eyes”. That said , I married a smoking hot, conservative girl 51 years ago and consider myself the luckiest guy on the planet.

First, there's a huge difference between a "liberal," especially a classic liberal (aka conservative) and a "progressive." If you could find one not physically repulsive with the greasy hair and screechy voice, she'd be a harder core communist than a female VC or NVA regular, and at least some of the latter could be rather attractive. Reminds me of a social science class I once took in grad school. The professor, a medical doctor turned supply-side economist, used me in the class as the token conservative("let's see what brother geoman thinks about that!"). He once told me in class that even though I identified as a "Reagan Conservative," I was actually a classic liberal. At first I got angry but since one's political identification on a left-to-right Likert scale is the most predictive variable in social science research, I listened to what he was telling me. He made some very good points and included reference citations, which I looked up and processed, and I came to see that he was more right than wrong. It still made me feel kind of dirty but I found that classic liberals are strong believers in liberty and free enterprise, which is a good starting point for political identification. That's also a reason I was an early supporter of Trump, as I did not see him as an ideological conservative as much as a populist with strong core beliefs. Again, a good starting point for a new politician.

Late in the story, the writer talks about "Kari, 45, is a fundraising executive" with Leftist views. When the writer stated "While she met her most recent ex on a plane," my mind jumped to the words of a country song.... "She's Just the Next Ex of My Old Used-To-Be".

Women want men, real men, even if they can't admit it to themselves. Liberalism truly is a mental illness. They try to change everything, but the fundamentals are not subject to change as they were instilled by our creator.

There’s a lot of room between sitting on your hands doing nothing and setting everything on fire. Things that used to get done used to get done in that space, and not much outside it. Outside it is apathy or insanity, which are not places you want to live. But life has gone from having a dimmer switch to two settings – off and blowing circuits. It’s fun to watch, I guess, but it’s not particularly helpful if you want to get things done. And I, for one, would like to get things done.

Where It Is Now: There are too many obstacles to death! We have to make it easier to die! Where It’s Going: Death on demand for any reason (already the law in Germany). Some jurisdictions are moving along this trajectory quickly and some more slowly. But over time, that is the way the current flows. Canada is speed runner in this regard.

Given how flawed human nature is, America has been a remarkable moral achievement. This is the truism that separates the wise man from the fool. This is the truism that separates the left from the anti-left. Those who acknowledge how flawed human nature is compare America to reality. Those who do not, compare America to some utopian image: a country free of inequality, prejudices, intolerance, sexual misbehavior, greed, etc. This divide helps explain why those who hold a biblical worldview -- usually religious Jews and Christians -- are more likely to appreciate America than those who do not.
