New dating site Maple Match helps Americans find a Canadian partner for a special mission “” to “save them from the unfathomable horror of a Trump presidency.”
And the service”™s tagline? “Make dating great again,” natch.

“This is about finding the right partner and not caring if they”™re on the other side of the border,” CEO Joe Goldman explained to The Guardian. “You should go to a place where you”™ll be happy. For a number of Americans, in the event of a Trump presidency, that place would be Canada.” Whole thing here.
