Topic of the Week: dating...
It can be tricky finding compatibility in dating and relationships at the best of times. So how do anarchist views and ways affect these things, especially considering anarchists make up a tiny percentage of the overall population?
Does dating within established anarchist circles help? Or does this become stagnant at some point?
For people living outside major centres, how do you find people to date who are of like mind or even who are not hostile to your ways?
Do you self-declare as an anarchist just to get it out of the way and weed out non-viable situations right off the jump? Or would you intentionally go out of your way to date non-anarchists, knowing that many anarchists clash with each other?
How do anarchists and non-anarchists find common ground for dating or long-term relationships? Do anarchist/non-anarchist matches work well in your experience?
What are some of the common sticking points created by anarchism within dating and relationships, in general?
And finally, do anarchists need their own dating service?
