Dismayed Brits who voted “Remain” on the UK’s Brexit referendum last week can now find like-minded people to commiserate with. As The Telegraph reports, “Remainders” is a new dating app targeted exclusively at users who voted to keep Britain in the European Union.

After the historic vote on June 23, a pair of “Remain” voters were inspired to create the app as a way of cheering up heartbroken citizens who are in the same boat. “The EU Referendum result has been a tough experience for a lot of people," the app’s Crowdfunder page reads. "What better way to recover than by going out with a fellow Remain voter?”

Remainder isn’t the first dating app to filter out matches based on political leanings. General dating apps like Bumble as well as niche services like candiDATE offer the option to connect users based on shared views, something people are factoring into their dating lives more than they were 50 years ago. This latest app narrows down the dating pool even further. (There’s still no word on whether we'll see a competing app for the 52 percent who voted “Leave”).

The creators are looking to crowdfund £5000 to make some finishing touches on the app before it’s ready to download. Until then, you can join the thousands who’ve already signed up ahead of its launch.
