This Dating App Wants To Connect You With Someone From Canada So You Can Escape Trump

If the election didn’t turn out as you would’ve hoped, and you’re serious about heading north, there’s a dating app that can help. Yes, there’s really an app for that. Maple Match is a Canadian dating app that connects Americans and Canadians looking for love.

The app is set up similarly to other dating apps, like Tinder and Bumble. Users begin by setting up a profile and answering basic questions, such as gender and location. Then some more unique questions come up, including some about political opinions, the type of citizenship the user is seeking and a couple of personal questions. After the questions are completed, the app finds matches for the user based on the answers given. If you’re curious to see more, one Business Insider reporter did a whole trial run of the app showing the interface, examples of the questions asked and even some of the guys.

You may think this app is a joke, but it most certainly is not. It’s as serious as the fact that Trump has been elected. According to the site, “Maple Match is a very real company with the goal of bringing Americans and Canadians together in a fun, meaningful way. Tens of thousands of you have told us that they want to use Maple Match for dating, so we look forward to building the best experience out there for meeting quality matches online.”

We have a feeling that now that Trump is the new president-elect, the number of users on this app will increase drastically.
