more advice for the lovelorn soulz

From some loser on

Q. I'm 45 and never married, though a survivor of many relationships. I'm not petty -- I can handle it if a guy is shorter, fatter, poorer, bald, etc. But I've recently met someone I'm wildly attracted to and there is a problem -- major! I'm half laughing, half crying as I write this. He's a diehard Republican; I'm an Obama girl. Clearly our politics are miles apart. Whenever he brings up the election I want to scream, but I settle for closing his mouth with a kiss. When the chemistry fades, is the relationship doomed to fall apart?

A. So let me get this straight, you're a Democrat, and the dude you're into is a Republican. Please allow me to break this down for you in terms of a relationship: By simply following a path in your relationship, similar to the path already set by your chosen political affiliations, you'll find that in the end it will burn itself out.

Let me guess, the previous administration, errr - I mean previous boyfriend - did you wrong in many ways. And now you think you're going to be able to fix it with one nice shiny package that contains a lot of style, but not a whole lot of substance.

As your relationship gets clogged with more, and more, and more special interests, wedge issues (like what to name your gay kid), and out-of-control spending (do you really need all that crap you just bought...on credit?).

Face it, you both have a one way ticket to the same shitty destination - just one of you is flying, and one of you is taking the train. But ultimately, you're both fucked.

Good luck!
