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. Use it as an opportunity to teach them a thing or two…and simply fall into that sweet green love! ????
