The self-explanatory dating site was started by David Gross, who felt that Trump followers faced a stigma in the dating scene because of the “brash things” that the presumptive GOP presidential nominee has said.
Gross told the New York Post that he was initially worried that people would think that the site was a joke. “At first I was concerned that people would think this was a parody site,” Gross said. “But people have told me that they’re so happy they can finally go on dates without worrying about political differences.”
The dating site already boasts 500 users, many of whom are based in New York, Washington, D.C., and Los Angeles; Gross said that he’s also looking to launch a mobile app for it within the next week.
The site isn’t the first to capitalize on the romantic aspect of politics; for those who are decidedly not Trump fans, there’s a dating website called Maple Match for those who are looking to find potential Canadian mates to save them from “the unfathomable horror of a Trump Presidency.”
