Young people in the White House can't get dates because they work for Trump

Finding love in this weird and wonderful world can be tough at the best of times, that's even without bringing politics into the mix.

Talking politics on a first date is usually a big relationship no-no, but if that's where your career lies then what are you to do?

According to Politico, young staff members working for the Trump administrating are having a rather tough time in the dating game at the moment.

It appears they are having to decide when to come clean, so to speak, to their prospective partners with the admission: 'I work for the Trump administration' - which admittedly doesn't sound quite as bad as: 'I avidly read the Daily Mail.' Or...

Actually, that might be as bad as it gets.

Anyway, those who work at the White House seem to be learning that talking about their actual place of work isn't going to win them a second - or even a first - date if they reveal too much.

A former White House staffer told Politico:

I've still been able to hook up with women. But I know that I need to be careful about broaching the Trump stuff.

He went on to say:

I just know that going in, I need to be able to get it out at the right time and not get it out too early to the point where it's like, 'Hey, I worked for Trump, you should stop talking to me.'

Things have apparently become troublesome enough that many staffers have to be rather vague about discussing their job, with one saying he worked as an auditor on Wall Street.

Another official told Politico how she has:

Very, very frequent scraps with matches on dating apps.

She added: "You do the small talk thing, and you have a very good conversation, and then they might say, 'You didn't vote for Trump, right?'

"As soon as I say: 'Of course I did', it just devolves into all-caps 'HOW COULD YOU BE SUCH A RACIST AND A BIGOT?'

Another White House staff member said that this kind of response isn't exclusive to the dating world: "I've gotten yelled at a few times walking out of work."

Dating is tough for everyone, it would seem.
