Yes, the time is upon us. America tried everything: squinting to make lucifer in the flesh less evil, we poured money on everything hoping he would go away, we even pretended like it wasn’t happening. Now Hillary Clinton is the only thing standing between us and America turning into a full on reality show.


Fleeing to Canada seems like a realistic option, but not so fast. Moving to the great white north isn’t as easy as driving to Montreal. But as the Washington Post reports help might be on the way:

Luckily, now there’s a dating website that takes this into consideration. It’s called Maple Match, and its tagline promises to make “it easy for Americans to find the ideal Canadian partner to save them from the unfathomable horror of a Trump presidency.”

In other words, Americans looking to escape a Trump presidency can find a warm, loving place to shack up in Canada. Two birds with one stone. The site’s slogan, naturally, is “Make dating great again.”

Okay but are people really signing up for this?

According to the site’s founder and CEO Joe Goldman, it is not funded by an anti-Trump organization.

“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 told Tech Times on Monday. “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.”

He insisted that it is not a joke, and the site will actually connect singles.

“Donald Trump is a joke,” Goldman told Cosmopolitan. “Finding true love in a place where you can be happy is not a joke. Maple Match is very real.”

We love the idea CEO Joe Goldman, but we have to quibble with one thing and keep repeating this to yourself: Donald Trump is not a joke. Seriously, somebody help us.
