Today’s republican is a different hybrid than the ones we had prior to 2015.

We live in Trump’s America now and it’s a new world many of us don’t recognize.

The dilemma becomes, how do we trust any Trump-supporter-would-be date isn’t either silently or openly, the same way?

I started asking on my social media platforms what singles were currently doing about dating and politics?

I found many were stuck in a holding pattern until they could figure out a new way.

Both men and women said they have started asking before accepting a date.

It feels as if its affected most of our social conventions, especially as we try to figure out why people we love and respect voted the way they did.

The legacy I want to leave when I die, the impression I want to leave on anyone I meet, is that I am committed to loving people and making our world a more kind, accepting and loving place.

Let’s remember that 53-61% of white women voted for Trump depending on their education.

Therefore statistically, female Trump supporters passed by the almost exact username without feeling the need to bash him.

I’m also the adoptive mother of black teenagers, one of whom is gay and another who is special needs, a lot of the unhinged hate speech of the president feels personal.
