Dating online can be difficult enough under normal circumstances, but apparently if you’re a supporter of Donald Trump, the complications increase because no one wants to date someone who voted for a racist.
After facing rejection from conventional dating websites, Trump supporters have reportedly started their own dating site, just for fellow bigots. David Goss, a 35-year-old Republican, was the founder of TrumpSingles.com.
One of Goss’s female friends was abandoned during a dinner date by a male Hillary Clinton supporter when she revealed she was for Trump; thus, Goss thought it would be a useful idea to have a site where you didn’t have to worry about the consequences of your insane political affiliations.
According to the New York Post, over 500 members have joined Trump Singles in New York, Los Angeles, and Washington D.C.
One user explained his reasoning for joining to the Post: “Trump is bastardized and demonized in the media, so I kind of keep to myself that I’m a Trump supporter because people can have a violent reaction to it. It’s hard for me sometimes to meet new people.”
Individuals using Trump Singles likely do not recognize that people are hostile to the mention of Trump and he is demonized by the media because he is a fraud and a racist, but at least they can now date like-minded, blind supporters.
The users of the dating site are unsurprisingly monolithic—according to the New Republic, “A quick search finds zero Hispanic, African-American, Arab, or gay men within 100 miles of D.C.”
Goss says the ultimate goal of Trump Singles is to help find long-term relationships: “We’re not a hookup service. We want to be an actual real dating site that helps people find real love.”
