- Can love be apolitical?
- Drinking turns him into the Devil
- My Irish family is being diluted
- I don't like his children
- Am I ever going to meet someone special?
I am in my fifties and after a long time mourning my wife, I have begun a relationship of late with an old friend. So far so good, we enjoy each other’s company and we both share our beloved Irish roots, something I think that really sealed us together. I like everything about her, and at my age this doesn’t happen regularly!
So I hate to be pessimistic, but I have one complaint that sometimes can overshadow the good. We are polar opposites politically! I am a conservative and have been all my life. I am a proud member of the Tea Party and I stand true to my conservative beliefs. It’s how I’ve been all my life.
She, on the other hand, is a flaming liberal! She is in a dream world when it comes to voters issues, and when the subjects come up (we try to suppress them) it ends badly. The time of year, the media and meeting fellow party members doesn’t help, and at the end of the day it’s impossible to avoid discussing and arguing.
We both agree on one thing – that we will never agree with the opposing viewpoints!
So, Colleen, my question to you is; can two people, of completely different viewpoints on important issues in life, be together in harmony? Or will it eventually break us? I have a lot to lose at this stage of my life, but I just can’t fathom some of her views.
Sounds like the good points outweigh the bad regarding this lady.
I have met the man of my dreams - he is from Ireland and lives here in the U.S near me (I don't want to give away too much information, since I know he goes on IrishCentral.com).
We've been dating for a few months, and we are taking it slow since we have both been married before. He is smart, funny, charming, and I am falling in love with him.
I am a 42 year old single man. I always pictured myself married with children, but I never found the right person.
