Only ¼ of single men avoid dating women with strong political opinions.41% of men and 40% of women think it’s risky to talk politics on a first date.63% said that they only date people These results indicate that there are no hard and fast rules about political talk and first dates.What we do know, though, is that having an interesting and engaging conversation on a first date, or any date for that matter, is vital to the success of a relationship.And according to a broad national survey of almost 5,500 unattached adults 21 and older, those qualities, attitudes and expectations illustrate cultural shifts in how singles approach relationships.Among the findings:-- 38% would cancel a date because of something they found while doing Internet research on their date.-- 42% would not date a virgin.-- 65% would not date someone with credit card debt greater than ,000; 54% would not date someone with substantial student loan debt.-- 49% would consider getting into a committed relationship with someone who lived at home with parents.

Vaillancourt, who works in public relations, did not participate in the survey, but agrees that "teeth are very important" in a potential date."Taking care of your teeth is a good indicator of hygiene."Such feelings don't surprise biological anthropologist Helen Fisher, a research professor at Rutgers University and a adviser who helped develop the survey."From a Darwinian perspective, good teeth are a real indication of your health -- how much you drink, smoke, what you're eating," she says.How important is it for you and your significant other to share similar political views? Recently, we conducted a poll to determine how political beliefs are playing a part in today’s dating scene.The results are rather surprising, and reflect the significance political discussions have on dating.33% have experienced a “ruined date” because of a date’s political opinions and of that 33%, 18% would not give their date a second chance.50% of both single men and women think that dating someone with opposite political views was fine for the short-term, but not for the long-haul.
Overall, the traits that men and women rate as important hew to traditional gender roles.An Associated Press-WE tv poll finds that two-thirds of Americans think it’s tougher to talk money with your romantic partner than it is to talk sex. And when people do lay out their thoughts on money and gender in the dating scene, all kinds of contradictions emerge.Seven in 10 of those surveyed say it’s unacceptable to expect a date to pay for everything.But most still say it’s a man’s job to pay for the first date.Most say it’s OK to ask someone out because he or she seems successful.
