Isn’t love great? These days, finding someone who’s compatible with you can be tough – just ask the young curators. From outdated views on race and reproductive rights to a blind allegiance to a twice-deposed former POTUS, some conservatives may struggle to find like-minded people to connect with — until now. The Right Stuff is an invite-only, conservative-only dating app, and it will launch next month. The app is the brainchild of Ryann McEnany.

This glorified Google Calendar app also does not offer any self-assigned gender options apart from male and female, nor is there an option to include pronouns on your profile.
The idea of a conservative dating app is of course not new. There are plenty of Republican dating sites and apps for those who lean on the right. No matter where you are on the political spectrum, weeding out those who disagree with you on important issues could be a good thing. Unless of course you’re looking for a little friendly talk to spice up what would otherwise be a boring date.
