Throughout my collaboration with We Love Dates I have written about different aspects of dating and relationships. You know, sharing quirks and tips for the best online dates, that sort of thing. Today though, I want to come at it from a completely different angle. Finding love and finding like-minded people should be a positive thing, but what happens when there are sites that spread a certain set of ideals that aren’t positive. Of course, what is positive and what isn’t is a matter of fact. It has a lot of elements and it’s entirely subjective. But since we’re all entitled to our opinions here’s mine.
I don’t even want to type these words on my site, but for the sake of getting my point across I will – Donald Trump. The President of the “Free World” and all that. The man whose political ideals are very far from mine. Yes, that man. What do online dating and Donald Trump have in common you ask? Trump.Dating … yes, you read right. There is a new site which is thankfully only popular across the pond where the like-minded Alt-right type meet and mingle. And yes, it is called Trump dot dating.
Here’s a straight up copy and paste job on the sites’ opening statement –
Find The America First Partner Of Your Dreams
Dating in 2018 is more of a challenge than ever before, thanks in part to today’s polarizing political landscape. While searching for a potential partner on other dating sites, it’s not uncommon to see messages like No Trump supporters or Proud liberal. We’re wrecking the dating game and giving like-minded Americans a chance to meet without the awkwardness that comes with the first conversation about politics. Wouldn’t it be refreshing to already know that your date roots for the same team?
Straight, Gay, or Bisexual?
As with any dating site, the very first step is to see how you self-identify. Well, my friends, if you opt to join this site your choices are quite limited. Are you a heterosexual male? No? Then you better be a heterosexual female, because if you don’t fall into either category you need not apply. What’s this LGBTQ acronym I hear of? Yeah, take that somewhere else because Trump dot dating, don’t forget the dot, is not the place for your type of people to mingle.
Safe Place for Cheaters
There have been some tweaks made to the website, as the developers claim that it “erroneously” offered those who made it past the first stage to select whether they were “happily married” or “unhappily married”. I think I’ll just leave this paragraph short and sweet and let that linger a bit. Let’s not talk about how the original stock photo of the models was a married couple and on top of that, the male in the photo has a child sex conviction. You know, can’t forget those good old American values and all that.
Some may argue that there are dating sites for different sexual orientations and even for those that choose to stray from a committed relationship. I don’t condone that, but there’s so much out there and I suppose all I can say to that is “ugh, whatever”. But the next bit does take the biscuit! When it comes to the ethnicity section your choices become even more limited than before … “Scandinavian/Mediterranean/Eastern European/Western European” are your choices. Seriously, I can’t even.
If you’re looking for love steer clear from the site. There are other options out there and hey, why not find something more local, and less homophobic and racist.
