Canada—where Americans can find refuge and romance if Trump becomes president.   (Maple Match)

(Newser) – Looking for true love? Thinking of fleeing to Canada if Donald Trump wins the general election in November? Now you can take care of both in one fell swoop thanks to a site that promises to "make dating great again," Global News reports. Maple Match "makes it easy for Americans to find the ideal Canadian partner to save them from the unfathomable horror of a Trump presidency," per the site—a mission that CEO Joe Goldman says is just part of the Great White North's neighborly duties.

"As Barack Obama said during Justin Trudeau's official welcoming ceremony at the White House, 'We're two different countries, but we're like one big town," Goldman says. "Our side [of] this 'town' happens to have a megalomaniac trying to seize power, so we're naturally concerned." Goldman insists this isn't a spoof. "Donald Trump is a joke," he tells Cosmopolitan. "Finding true love in a place where you can be happy is not a joke. Maple Match is very real." There's already a waiting list for the site, which hasn't started matching anyone yet, and Goldman tells Tech Times there've been more than 4,500 signups in just four days' time.
