Hey there, good lookin'. Are you single, ready to mingle, and tired of interacting with people who don't share your exact views on federal education and health care policy? Have we got news for you!
Yes, it's BernieSingles.com, a new dating website for Bernie Sanders supporters, by Bernie Sanders supporters. Or, as its tag line puts it, a place to "Meet other people who understand the world!"
The site, which currently boasts some 5,600 members and counting, was founded by 19-year-old Arizona State University student Colten Caudle -- who, the Huffington Post notes, met his girlfriend through a Bernie Sanders Facebook group earlier this month. (The two have yet to meet IRL.)
"Bernie Singles first started as a spinoff to the wildly popular Facebook group Bernie Sanders’ Dank Meme Stash, as the group Bernie Sanders’ Dank Meme (BSDM) Singles," explains the site's "About" page, thoroughly ensuring that no one over the age of 40 will understand a damn thing these people are saying. "As the group began to grow, people would suggest even more ways to group, by personal preference, or sexual orientation, etc. This is where Bernie Singles was born."
