Yeah, you knew it was only a matter of time. There’s all those online dating services and hookup sites that cater to every demographic. So why not a dating site designed just for Donald Trump supporters?

That’s what entrepreneur David Goss thinks and so he’s jumped right in with his site called TrumpSingles with the promise of “Making Dating Great Again!”  Just fill out your profile and wait for the perfect match to find you.  Or better yet – search on your own for the next love of your life.  No Hillary or Obama fans, please.

“It’s a place where people can come and meet each other and they don’t have to worry about going on that date, politics coming up, talking about politics and all of a sudden that person getting upset and leaving,” Goss explained to WFMY News. (Is that what happens? I wouldn’t know – I’m married. Sounds horrible).

Goss and his partner somehow screen every new member to make sure they are bona fide Trump supporters. One young lady who used the site was even lucky enough to shoot AR-15’s at a local gun range…on her first date!

It’s free to sign up, but you’re only allowed to send one message a day. Unlimited access is granted to users who pay $4.95 per month which, according to a previous New York Post article, is much less than what ta competitor – WhereWhitePeopleMeet.com – charges. (Should I comment? Nah – too easy). The site already claims thousands of users. Goss said he had to quit his job in order to run the busy operation.

Unfortunately, like any owner of a controversial small business will tell you, a thick skin is required. “I’ve been told that I’m a racist, I’ve been told I’m homophobic, I’m a xenophobe just for having a business!” Goss told WFMY. He insists, though, that members include people of all ethnicities, religions and sexual orientations. “We want to be an actual real dating site that helps people find real love.”

I make jokes, but in reality I’m impressed. Goss is doing what smart entrepreneurs do – he’s created a service that’s satisfying a niche. “I thought this website was a joke, but I get that everybody needs somebody, and relationships can be hard if both parties have widely different political views,” a dating expert told the Post.
