Conservatives are better at dating than liberals, survey finds

A new survey has found that conservatives are better at dating than liberals.

The findings were the result of a survey conducted by the over-50 dating app Lumen, which revealed that the dating approach of conservatives was more direct than that of liberals - equating to more success.

The survey found that conservatives immediately established what they were looking for in a relationship.

Another difference between the groups was that conservatives valued family and friendships more than liberals, but they tended to have smaller groups of friends. Liberals, on the other hand, allegedly thrived among larger groups of people.

However, while conservatives might have come out on top romantically, being a liberal is not without its advantages, and they were found to be more carefree and fun than their conservative counterparts. They're also more likely to travel.

Needless to say, people with similar political views almost exclusively tend to date.

According to the survey, conservative women were twice as likely to speak to conservative men. Similarly, liberals were much more likely to interact with each other, with men and women both being found to be three times more likely to speak to those whose political beliefs are in line with their own.

Lumen is owned by the same company in possession by the better-known dating app Bumble. The findings from this survey were conducted using its 1.5 million user base.

This survey comes in the wake of the revelation that Trump supporters find it harder to date, especially in blue cities like New York and Los Angeles.

"I think there’s a special stigma when people say they're supporting Trump because of some of the brash things that he's said," Republican David Goss, founder of, told Fox News.

"That immediately gets [projected] on his supporters and makes it hard for them when trying to date."
