You Will Need

- Media from both sides of the fence
- An active libido
- A gym
Embrace the media
We know it’s not your favorite thing to do, but suck it up, keep your comments to yourself, and devote a night to sharing their favorite partisan media with them. Your sweetheart will appreciate the effort.
Check yourself and zone out
If you find yourself speechifying about the splendors of your party, try to curb yourself. And when your other half is droning on, put on an interested face and take the opportunity to zone out.
Find something to like about the other party
Find something, no matter how small, to like about their political party.
Talk about other topics
Come on… you guys must have more on your minds than politics, right? Talk about that stuff—especially if it’s stuff you both enjoy and agree on.
Take it out on the gym
Push your pent-up frustration towards fitness.
Capitalize on the "opposites attract" idea
Opposites attract, and if James Carville and Mary Matalin can make it work, so can you. Turn those debates about government intervention and military spending into just another kind of foreplay, and invite your hot opponent to a bipartisan caucus… in the bedroom.
Remember why you're there
At the heart of it all, remember—you’re attracted to the person, not the party affiliation.
