As Brexit negotiations enter a crucial phase this week, The Inner Circle has investigated the extent to which its members are open to discussing politics on a date.
62% of survey respondents said that they would be open to talking about politics on a first date, while 25% would prefer to wait until future meetings.
Further, 68% are happy to reveal who they voted for to date, but 12% would never tell their partner no matter how long they have been together.
The Inner Circle CEO David Vermeulen explained in a statement: “Most singles are searching for people who are on the same page as them in life – but this doesn’t mean they have to agree on everything.
“Discussing politics and current affairs can be a good way to get to know your potential partner and find out what makes them tick.”
A majority of the respondents appeared to be open-minded when it came to politics, with 68% willing date someone who supported a rival party.
The current political climate in the US has raised issues for many online daters, particularly right-wing voters. Donald Daters is a new platform created for Trump supporters who have found themselves unwelcome on mainstream apps.
The Inner Circle recently released statistics showing which were the most popular profiles on the service. Working in finance was the most desirable industry for singles in London.
