Over 15 Years of Liberal Love Stories
How It began:
||LiberalHearts.com was born out of the great political divide of Election 2000. I was teaching Computer Science at the time and was relieved my students hadn't seen my passionately partisan remarks on the local news or my iKnowWhatYouDidLastElection site online. Though president 43 said he'd be a "uniter, not a divider," I knew liberals would only find comfort in each other's arms. I launched the world's first political dating site the next year. -- LH Founder|

Our Contest: Who Wants To Be First Lady?

|11/03 WorldNetDaily - "LiberalHearts.com is asking single women:
'Do you have what it takes to be presidential candidate Dennis Kucinich's first lady?'" Associated Press - "The Web site will fly the winner to New Hampshire for dinner at a vegetarian restaurant with Kucinich, who agreed to the date. The candidate is vegan."
12/03 MSNBC aired a debate between the finalists. 20,000 voted.
6 hours later, CNN announced that Gina Marie won with 52% of the vote. They contemplated America's future and each other for about an hour and exchanged numbers. Word is, her boyfriend back home proposed 2 weeks later. So we'll still take credit for another LiberalHearts love story!
Our Motto: Opposites attract, but LiberalHearts live happily ever after...
||CBS News, February 13, 2015
"Deborah and Jim are living proof of the powers of political alignment. They met in 2004 on LiberalHearts.com.
"She said her interests were fishing and camping and things like that, which I wasn't really interested in," Jim told CBS News. "But I felt I had to reply to someone who also agreed with Ralph Nader." Deb agreed. They've been together ever since."

matches" "I was hesitant but intrigued. Now, I have to say it opened up a whole new world for me! You introduced me to more compatible men in the last month than I met in the last 3 years.
