It seems we are all in preparation mode: A new dating service has been launched just in case Trump moves into The White House in November. With many public figures and celebrities vowing to leave the United States if this does, in fact, happen, Maple Match will cater to their romance needs, with the site pledging to set users up with their perfect Canadian counterpart.
“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 joining the wait-list, the site asks users to fill in their details, and join by clicking “save me from this madness.”
Okay but are people really signing up for this?
According to the site’s founder and CEO Joe Goldman, it is not funded by an anti-Trump organization.
“Maple Match started as a fun idea about Americans and Canadians connecting during the admittedly disturbing possibility of a Donald Trump presidency. However, over the past few days we have seen countless Americans and Canadians tell us about the frustration they’ve experienced with current dating platforms,” Goldman told Tech Times on Monday. “After more than 35,000 hits and more than 4,500 signups in just 4 days, we are confident that Maple Match will fulfill a clear need in the dating space.”
He insisted that it is not a joke, and the site will actually connect singles.
“Donald Trump is a joke,” Goldman told Cosmopolitan. “Finding true love in a place where you can be happy is not a joke. Maple Match is very real.”
I know what you’re all thinking, and we are on the same page. Trump is not a joke! Save yourself: Join here.
