What’s Going On Here?
OkCupid has just launched a new feature allowing users to filter out climate change deniers…environmentalism IS sexy after all! 😍
What Does This Mean?
The free dating site recently discovered that people are thinking about climate change when…dating! Their hot research found that:💚 Most daters are really concerned about climate change and are discussing the issue on their dating profiles.
💚 Climate change is more important to daters than the economy, eradicating disease and world peace.
💚 Young daters are most concerned about climate change, and women daters are more concerned about climate change than men daters (♀️💪🏽).
They also said there’s been a 240% increase in mentions of environmental terms on people’s profiles. So what did they do? They rolled out a new filter feature to steer away those pesky climate change deniers ⬇️⬇️⬇️.
Why Should We Care?
Let’s not jump to any conclusions here (e.g. caring about the environment will get you more sex), but climate denial is clearly a growing deal-breaker when it comes to finding a potential partner. I mean let’s be honest, unless you fancy having a heated debate on a date, most of us would do anything to avoid dating someone who actually thinks climate change is fake news.In support of OkCupid’s findings – Tinder’s most recent year-in-review found that terms such as “climate change”, “environment”, and “social justice” are the most popular inclusions in Gen Z user bios (and that millennials were more interested in finding a travel partner…#gapyah).
The fact that our Gen Z’ers are incorporating their love for the planet into their dating life – is pretty damn cool. It reflects the huge increase in public engagement around the climate crisis and the rise in environmental activism. So get on board that environmental love train!
💚 Be loud and proud about your love for the planet! If you’re a single pringle ready to mingle and you’re into your dating apps – try out OkCupid’s new filter or try chucking in an eco line or two into your bio (⬆️ see above pic for some inspo ⬆️)…it may attract your numero uno 😉.💚 If you’re feeling keen go straight in with one of these eco-inspired lines…🥁
- “I should call you carbon, cause you’re causing a period of unprecedented warming in my atmosphere.”
- “Is your middle name turbine? Cuz you’ve got me spinning.”
- “Don’t say you’ve got a girlfriend, cuz that would be an inconvenient truth.”
- “We don’t need to frack to make the bed rock.”
- “If you were a year you’d be the last one, cause you’re the hottest on record.”
Please note: we hold zero responsibility for the success of these #climatepickuplines.💚 Find your ‘veg-match’ on Veggly – yep, this is a dating app just for vegans and vegetarians…🍆💚 A shared passion to save the planet doesn’t have to be a deal-breaker when it comes to dating.
