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.

The vast majority of dating app consumers tend to be younger with 83% of Tinder users ranging from the ages of 16 to 34, according to the GlobalWebIndex. The same pattern is true for Remainers as the youngest citizens voted to stay within the international organization, so the concept is fitting.

While Remainder is in the preliminary stages of development, they told The Telegraph that their target is 16,141,241 users; the total number of official Remainers in the U.K.
