One Seal Beach (CA) woman-seeking-woman user’s tagline was “Help!Surrounded by libtards.”WE HOPE SHE MADE IT OUT ALIVE. During a short flirtation with the dating site OKCupid, one man I was matched with emailed that he recognized my photo and without any additional pleasantries asked, “How can I speak on a panel at CPAC? If I’m being honest, there may have been a time I offered a cute author a book signing at CPAC, but it was frustrating to be approached about CPAC when I clearly had another purpose for being online. For the first time last year I participated in an event called “Friend Swap,” an invite-only gathering of single Washingtonians. It was started several years ago by Harvard Law graduates who moved to D. In 2004, The Washington Post wrote, “When 500 Friend Swap members get together one Wednesday night in March at Maxim Restaurant near the White House, the cumulative effect is less that of a singles scene and more of a convention at the Omni Shoreham.” I suspect this is a dig at CPAC, which was held at the Omni Shoreham Hotel for many years.
Several times on Christian Mingle and e Harmony I was matched with guys who already knew me through CPAC . Predictably, one of my matches was the guy from OKCupid who asked how he could become a CPAC speaker.
Online dating for conservatives is tricky, particularly for those in the movement, because it is a fairly small pool. It’s telling that the point of the event is to find a significant other, but yet it’s still called “Friend Swap.” A mixer with mixed messages is so D. I recall being set-up with five people at the 2013 Friend Swap, most of whom I met at the event.
If you know him or are him, come to my book signing at CPAC and I’ll give you my number.
The Atlasphere They say: “Connecting admirers of The Fountainhead and Atlas Shrugged.”We say: Are you feeling Rand-y? And for those who believe in “self-reliance” above all, except when it comes to dating, we guess. Waiting Till Marriage They say: “Make it to your wedding night without dying of frustration first.”We say: Alleviate your frustration easily by having sex!
Conservatives Only They say: “Join the lib-free dating scene.”We say: “Lib-free,” perhaps, but certainly not “Glamour Shots portraits with your dog(s)” free.
Conservatives Only is more aggressive in its dating approach, with a large font that appears to be riddled with bullet holes, and an assurance that there are no “feminazis,” “socialists,” “marxists” or “communists.” Despite being “lib-free,” it was surprisingly not “lez free,” as we found 16 conservative lesbians on the site.
The last 15 years in the conservative movement now seem like the lightning round of a game show. In short, the event was indistinguishable (for me, anyway) from a networking event.
The others talked about work and people we both knew.
Heck, the year itself begs for an extra dose of romance – 2/14. C., I’ve had some funny missteps, dead ends and a few connections that really helped me learn more about myself and the kind of man I’d like to marry.
Ideally, he’d be a mix of Ron Swanson and Bruce Campbell.
Then you’ll have to die alone in a field somewhere.1.
