Donald Trump is making America date again.
David Goss, a lifelong Republican, just launched a new dating site for Trump backers who are unlucky in love: TrumpSingles.com.
The idea came to him after a female friend, a die-hard Trump supporter, told him that a date got up in the middle of dinner and left her with the check after she mentioned she was voting for the GOP’s presumptive nominee.
“There’s a special stigma when people say they’re supporting Trump, because of some of the brash things that he’s said,” Goss, an associate TV producer based in Santa Clarita, Calif., told The New York Post. “That immediately gets [projected] on his supporters, and it makes it hard for them when trying to date.”
The site, which went live in May, has about 500 members. Users can search matches by age, location and interests and gender. (Any gay Trump supporters out there? This is for you too.) The site is free, though users can only send messages if they pay the $4.95 monthly subscription fee.
“At first I was concerned that people would think this was a parody site,” Goss, whose wife, Tonya, is also pro-Trump, told The Post. “But people have told me that they’re so happy they can finally go on dates without worrying about political differences.”
Amber Williams, a 34-year-old paralegal based in L.A., told The Post she signed up for the site because most of the guys in her area are Bernie Sanders supporters.
Goss plans to roll out a mobile app for the site next week.
“We’re not a hookup service,” Goss said. “We want to be an actual real dating site that helps people find real love.”
