We’ve got OkCupid, match.com, and a whole lot of dating websites dedicated to several groups of people that are alike or share the same interest, but have you ever heard of a dating website dedicated for supporters of a political candidate?
“Make dating great again” is the slogan for a dating site meant for the supporters of Mr. Donald Trump, a play on his slogan “Make America great again.” The site is called Trumpsingles.com, and was founded by a lifelong Republican supporter, David Goss.
The idea came from Mr. Goss and some of his conservative friends back in February. Trumpsingles.com went live in May and more than 500 Trump supporters have joined since. It may seem like a small number, but it will grow as the elections are coming near. Most of its users are from NY, LA, and Washington, DC. It’s just like any other dating sites wherein you can get a match with your age, location, and interests. Unlike Tinder, it only allows you to send one message a day, unless you decide to pay $4.95 monthly subscription fee.
According to Goss, an associate TV producer based in Santa Clarita, CA, “[I think] there’s a stigma when people say they’re supporting Trump because of the brash things that he said. That immediately gets (projected) on his supporters, and it makes it hard for them when trying to date.” This is what he told The Post.
It might’ve been Goss’s female pal, who’s an avid Trump fan, who somehow stirred this idea in the head of the young Californian. She told him that when she revealed her political leanings to a Hillary Clinton supporter (whom she was out on a date with), he immediately got up and left her with the check. This is just one of the instances wherein Trump supporters had difficulties when it comes to dating.
There are Trump fans who get out of both short and long-term relationships because of their political leanings. Political differences are going to be a big factor for relationships, so they would rather date someone with the same political leanings as them. This would be a tad bit difficult as there are people who would rather date people who support any other candidate except for Donald Trump.
There are also people who think that Trumpsingles.com is a parody site, but we assure you that this really is a legit dating site.
“At first, I was concerned that people would think this is a parody site,” says Goss. “But people have told me that they’re so happy they can finally go on dates without worrying about political differences.”
Goss also says that they are not a hookup service and they do aim to help people find real love without thinking too much about their political leanings.
However, there are also Americans who worry about Trump winning the seat at the White House. In the same month that the Trumpsingles.com was perceived in the mind of Dave Goss, the island of Cape Breton on Canada’s Atlantic coast started to market itself as a refuge for Americans seeking to escape the country should Trump wins. For this, there is also a dating site launched for Americans who want to find the ideal Canadian partner if they decide to move to Canada.
“Maple Match makes it easy for Americans to find the ideal Canadian partner to save them from the unfathomable horror of a Trump presidency,” the Maple Match website reads, before offering a waiting list for interested singles.
The site allows users to add their name to a waitlist matching dismayed U.S voters with interested singles, adding “We’ll let you know the steps soon!” to their application.
Chief Executive Joe Goldman told the Canadian Broadcasting Corp that more than 10,000 singles and 2,000+ Canadians have already signed up for the website’s waiting list. The website’s Twitter page was also active, and was suggesting that the website would help Americans avoid the difficulties of gaining Canadian citizenship.
Now that there are two new dating sites that would cater to your political leanings first, it is only a matter of time to decide which dating site is more suitable for you. It truly is a time to be alive or in love for that matter.
