Swipe right for climate action - OKCupid adds new 'green filter'
by Maya Comely
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:
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.
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 😉.
Please note: we hold zero responsibility for the success of these #climatepickuplines.
