The Dating Game Gets Partisan, With Politics a Deal Breaker

Opposites Aren't So Attractive; Voting Record Trumps Religion, Looks and Schooling

Ms. Adler owns Selective Search Inc., a high-end matchmaking service in Chicago. With 28 offices across the nation, the firm pledges to find the ideal mate for clients paying fees that start at $20,000. Not in four presidential elections has Selective Search seen so much love lost over politics.
In this neck-and-neck, ideologically fraught presidential election season, politically active singles won't cross party lines. The result is a dating desert populated by reds and blues who refuse to make purple.
Perhaps, if one were into Sado-Masochism a democrat would make a good pick as a partner... I'm not too familiar with the lifestyle myself, but as a Republican, the "little red ball, taped in the mouth" thing does have a certain appeal.
