A…car dating app? Yes, you read that right.

These days, you can find almost anything you want at the swipe of the hand. Lately, even the car industry has capitalized on this trend. Even brands like Cars.com make it easier than ever to get you matched with the right set of wheels. But, have you ever wished you could not only find a great car, but find someone who shared your love of cars too? You’re in luck, because in the latest internet news, there’s now a car dating app just for that. 

Find Tinder too tiresome? Developer Ajitpal Grewal is currently working on a car dating app designed specifically for car lovers to connect with…other car lovers. Specifically, the app is geared toward Tesla owners for now, but could potentially be expanded at a later date. If you’re looking for something a little more general, Date My Ride is the place to go. 

The car dating app at work

So how does it all work? For this app specifically, you have to be a Tesla owner. Once you’re approved as an eligible bachelor or bachelorette, you’ll be greeted with an interface that’s surprisingly similar to apps like Tinder. You’ll see a potential match and either hit a big red ‘X’ or a green circle to say ‘no’ or ‘yes’, respectively. There’s one key detail, though. Under every photo, you’ll be able to see a Tesla-style rendering of each person’s car accompanied by a short description. Hot.

This is all a very tongue-in-cheek way to poke fun at people who love their Teslas a little too much. Still, it could very much signal a shift in the way we date. People increasingly want to connect over things they truly love. Plenty of niche dating sites have already amassed thousands of singles. But should you sign up? While it might be fun to swipe through some “S3XY” Tesla owners while you’re stuck at home, we think the best connections are made out in the world, or out on the road. 

Once you do snag a car-loving cutie through the car dating app though, why not take them on a road trip this fall?
