With Donald Trump the likely Republican presidential nominee, many people may already be planning their escape plan out of this country if and when he actually becomes commander-in-chief. If you are already thinking about going to Canada, why not sweeten the deal and make the big move to shack up with someone you've been dating online?
Making dating great again — for those looking to leave the U.S. — Maple Match is a new dating website that will help Americans hook up with Canadians. Just in case Trump becomes president, they will already know and possibly have a strong connection with someone they met on the platform — because there is nothing like running away from a possible four-year bad relationship with the new president to get into a new relationship in a new country with a stranger you met online.
"Maple Match makes it easy for Americans to find the ideal Canadian partner to save them from the unfathomable honor of a Trump presidency," the website reads.
The dating site has not yet officially launched, but those looking for love and a big move can fill out the Maple Match form to get on the waiting list. Along with entering in their name, age and email, the users checks off whether they have an American or Canadian citizenship. Make sure to select who you are interested in dating, and click the "save me from this madness" button to complete the process.
"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," Joe Goldman, Founder and CEO of Maple Match told Tech Times. "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."
With its growing interest, Goldman revealed that he plans on launching the site "as soon as possible."
Besides having no Donald Trump and maybe even your potential soulmate, Canada actually has a lot to offer. It's big on hockey for sports fans, has universal health care and has low business taxes. Democrats will enjoy the fact that the country is left-leaning when it comes to politics, and it may even soon legalize marijuana. Since many speak French, it's like living in a version of the European country, only it's much closer to your U.S relatives.
However, would people really leave the U.S. to escape Trump and find true love?
"Call me a softie, but I really do believe that if two people truly love each other, they will overcome any obstacle and cross any border to start a meaningful life together, and that's what Maple Match is all about," Goldman said.
Who knows, maybe you will have Donald Trump to thank for being the reason you found your match.
