Lifelong Republican David Goss, 35, was hanging out with his conservative friends in February when he came up with the idea of TrumpSingles.com, a dating website for supporters of the presumptive Republican presidential nominee.
Goss’ female pal, who’s a die-hard Trump fan, told him that when she revealed her political leanings to a male Hillary Clinton supporter in the middle of a dinner date, he got up and left her with the check.
“I think 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., tells The Post. “That immediately gets [projected] on his supporters, and it makes it hard for them when trying to date.”
Golly, people finding out they have major disagreements politically might lead to a bad date? Well, who the fuck knew.
“At first I was concerned that people would think this was a parody site,” says Goss, whose wife, Tonya, is also pro-Trump. “But people have told me that they’re so happy they can finally go on dates without worrying about political differences.”
TrumpSingles user and libertarian Richard, who asked that his last name not be used for privacy reasons, agrees.
“Trump is bastardized and demonized in the media, so I kind of keep to myself that I’m a Trump supporter because people can have a violent reaction to it,” Richard, a 27-year-old retail associate from Oxnard, Calif., tells The Post. “It’s hard for me sometimes to meet new people.”
Founder Goss plans to roll out a TrumpSingles mobile app in the next week.
“We’re not a hookup service,” he says. “We want to be an actual real dating site that helps people find real love.”
Oh good. Conservative bigots meeting, mating, and manufacturing more conservative bigots. Just what we all need.
