Google searches for “move to Canada” spiked in March of this year, and one enterprising Canadian dating site is looking to capitalize on that.

MapleMatch.com “makes it easy for Americans to find the ideal Canadian partner to save them from the unfathomable horror of a Trump presidency,” Joe Goldman’s site promises.

“When this election came about and I started seeing Donald Trump and the rise of his candidacy I started getting concerned, just like anybody else,” Goldman told the Guardian. “I thought it might be interesting to try something like this out.”

The app, which hasn’t even launched yet, currently has over 5,000 singles signed up for it. “Please help me,” a 22-year-old American wrote in his Maple Match application. “I found out my parents are voting for Trump and it literally broke my heart.”

Earlier this year, “Cape Breton if Donald Trump Wins” was launched with the aim of attracting people to the small, sparsely-populated Canadian island should they need somewhere to flee to if Trump becomes president.
