Maple Match, a dating app that aims to save Americans who fear a Trump presidency by matching them with a Canadian partner, is rapidly gaining popularity.
“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,” Joe Goldman, founder and CEO of Maple Match told the Tech Times.
“Make dating great again,” says the new dating website, a play on Trump’s “Make America great again” slogan.
“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 site states.
The site has not yet officially launched, but people can sign up to the waitlist.
The form asks individuals for their basic information, whether they are American or Canadian, and an optional comment to the question, “How we can make Maple Match great for you?” People then click the button “save me from this madness” to submit the form.
“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 said.
People are also showing their excitement about it on social media:
