9 per cent of singles overall chose politics – but none of these singles were Canadian.That’s right: not one Canadian single thought political chat should be off the table. She wanted me to know it was a badge of honor for her. It’s always seemed a decent guess that we let political affiliations influence our attraction to a potential valentine. A recent study demonstrates that having similar political beliefs makes us more likely to be interested in a person when we view his or her online dating profile. Casting a vote for a Republican is by no means a date deal breaker as far as I’m concerned. It changed the background music playing behind her monologues.There was, however, one topic that was universally thought to be bad date conversation: the subject of ex-partners.40 per cent of singles thought that this topic was the most off-putting thing that someone could bring up, making it a bigger no-no than talking about money (15 percent), sex (11 per cent) or marriage (10 per cent).The results also showed that Canadians are particularly easy-going when it comes to discussing this traditionally ‘taboo’ topic.The survey, which looked at the responses of 500 singles from Canada, the UK, Ireland, New Zealand, Australia and South Africa, also asked singles what they thought the most forbidden first-date conversation topic was.
