U.K. citizens who voted to remain within the EU are so avid about their choice that many don’t want to date anybody who advocated for leaving. A new dating application called Remainder is giving the “Remainers,” as they are colloquially called, what they want by only offering potential matches for like-minded users.
While the dating app’s website expresses no blatant animosity towards their homeland counterparts, the two dispirited creators wanted “to cheer everyone up after a dismal day” and help “heartbroken Remain voters to find a bit of comfort” following Brexit.
Remainder has gotten “interest from venues in several Remain-voting cities across the UK wanting to host a Remainder date night,”according to their crowdfunding page. The application is not currently functional, but the blueprint is apparently in place. The startup is soliciting donations with a £5,000 goal to continue testing the technology.
