Well, let's face it, we were all awaiting this one. A new online dating site is parading that it will "Make Dating Great Again" by bringing together Americans frightened of living under a President Trump, with matches across the northern border.

Maple Match, the brainchild of 25-year-old Texan, Joe Goldman, was inspired after repeated proclamations from Goldman's circle of friends that they would move to Canada if the likely GOP frontrunner became president in November, according to NBC News.

"I have always been fascinated by Canada," Goldman said. "So I thought to myself, 'Given the current political situation, this could bring Canadians and Americans closer together'."

Goldman told NBC that he launched the site just over a week ago and already 13,000 people have signed up, a quarter from Canada.

"The response has been tremendous," he said. "I'm getting people from all over, but the strongest responses have been from Seattle and New York City. Our first inquiries came from Billings, Montana."

Goldman, who isn't partened up himself, said he too is a member of the site and hopes of finding his dream Canadian. He told NBC that there is no registration fee.

"Maple Match makes it easy for Americans to find the ideal Canadian partner to save them from the unfathomable horror of a Trump presidency," the site declares.

In 2003 when George W. Bush was running for reelection, many Americans expressed selling their personal belongings and emigrating to Canada.

Meanwhile this year, Lena Dunham along with other celebrities have threatened to cross north if Trump does wind up in the White House. However, members should be wary that marrying a Canuck doesn't automatically guarantee Canadian citizenship, according to various websites that specialize in immigration issues, reports NBC News.
