Are you heartbroken following Brexit? All hail the dating app that will match you with fellow Remain voters

Along with the cabinet, the shadow cabinet and social media, many friendship groups are in meltdown following the Brexit vote, and many Remain voters have been spotted walking apprehensively down the street, suspiciously eyeing everyone who crosses their path, unable to be certain who voted Leave and who voted with them.

To avoid any confusion, and to provide a snuggly blanket of comfort during these uncertain times, two Remain voters have created a solution that will solve IT ALL.

Ok, so it won’t solve it all – it won’t solve the plummeting pound, the Westminster skulduggery or triggering of article 50, but it might solve our love lives.

Following Friday’s result, two staunch Remain voters have created a dating app exclusively for those who voted Remain – so you don’t end up halfway through drinks laughing joyously and staring into the eyes of your potential new beau, before realising they voted to leave, and having to flee the scene.

Remainder, “created by two ordinary voters who wanted to cheer everyone up after a dismal day,” is touting itself as the “dating and social app for the 48 per cent.”

It’s the perfect post break-up (of the union) remedy, where you can meet “someone who shares your sense of existential dread.”

If you voted remain, Remainder is the dating app for you

Explaining their reason and inspiration behind the app, the pair say on their website:

"We think everyone’s entitled to their views and we know that there are many sensible, kind and intelligent Leave votersbut our audience is ‘Remainers’ and we’re trying to provide a little comfort for these heartbroken voters.

"We created it because all the Remain voters we know seemed so depressed. Our Facebook feeds had turned into a never-ending funeral service.

“We thought the best way of recovering must be to go out for a few drinks with someone who’s in the same boat. After all ‘a problem shared is a problem halved’."

Sadly, the app has not yet been entirely realised, as the duo are still crowdfunding it, and have currently raised £10 (which we estimate equates to a value of around £100 pre-referendum). But, the founders believe it will be up and running this weekend set for a London release (which will provide a larger pool of contributors.)

There is no word yet as to whether the app will be launching in Wales, the Midlands, or the North of the country.

If you are suffering from post-Brexit heartbreak, you can sign up to join the app here.
