Man, this is really something. The 145,000th piece of evidence just landed in support of the hypothesis that Tesla is, in fact, a cult, and that activism and ideology has replaced religion in the wealthier, progressive, and more youthful corners of America.

Which brings us to Tesla Dating.

The website in support of this under-development dating app is real, and apparently so is the intention of its creator, a Canadian Tesla owner and “ecommerce entrepreneur” named Ajitpal Grewal.

It sounds like a joke, and it could very well still turn out to be one, but Grewal told Business Insider that it’s all very serious. Love is serious business, you know, and as the website states, you can’t spell “love” without “EV.”

Hey, pick your head up out of that bucket — there’s more!

Grewal claims he instantly became aware of the close bond Tesla owners share, one we’ve made mention of on these digital pages. The ridiculous, cult-like fandom that surrounds both Tesla and its CEO, Elon Musk, often appears like a nerdier version of Jonestown, minus the unhappy ending and free drinks.

Well, Grewal’s looking for many happy endings.

“It became a big part of their identity, and they shared a lot of the same values, like wanting to reduce their impact on the environment, stanning Elon Musk, or appreciating high tech,” Grewal told BI. “Suddenly it hit me, these people would be perfect for each other.”

If you require a definition of “stanning,” please consult this valued resource.

A profile of a very real Tesla owner shows potential clients (who will be vetted for proof of Tesla ownership) what they might be in for. Watch out, fellas — too many late-night noise complaints and your landlord, or possibly parent, might just kick you out! Another warning to the many, many guys (a vast portion of the app’s client base, if online comments prove true) who might take Mia up on her offer: Beware! Your future flame may appear hot to trot, but she’s trying to lure you into an unsafe situation. Tesla vehicles equipped with the Full Self Driving package are not capable of driving themselves.

Do whatever you want in the backseat, but it’ll have to be a solo affair. Mia’s proper place is up front, where her job is to remain alert and ready to take over in case Autopilot gets into trouble. And we’ve all seen that it can.

Grewal, who believes “your car tells a lot about you as a person,” said the app is in the early stages of development. Of course, it’s not a new idea —  this Tesla Forums post shows that people were mulling the idea three years ago.

Will Tesla Dating one day come to pass? Will Natalie fall for this silky smooth operator? The jury’s out, but yours truly doesn’t want to be anywhere near it when it happens. Just the thought of legions of panting, trouser-tended Tesla aficionados on the make has me reaching for the bottle.

    This is a great idea. Not sure what the downside is. It’s letting people who have a lot in common hook up.

    Plus, no one will argue when one of them drops an air biscuit that the windows should immediately be rolled up.

    So I can switch to this when my profile gets no clicks?

    I like the lead picture. No doubt the guy is minutely examining the outstanding and exquisite craftsmanship present on his Tesla masterpiece. A guy like that expects a girl like Mia. Smart, successful, oblivious and with a head full of air — the attraction between these two discriminating adults should be obvious to envious bystanders.

    OK, I’ll start this off….!

    I can certainly feel the electricity in the air on this one! Users of this app will feel sparks between each other! If, tragically, a couple brought together by this app break up, will the one on the receiving end of the “I don’t ever wanna see you again,” or possibly both, be in a terrible frunk for awhile? (Yes, the comedic timing is terrible, but I don’t know what to call someone who’s just gotten a “Dear John/Jane” letter, text, call, roundhouse kick to the head, etc.!)

    I think there is a dating app for Alfa Romeo drivers…it’s called “Uber.”

    Personally, if someone with those first three attributes listed appeared in my potential match list, it’d be an instant “reject!” Don’t care how attractive she might be!

    Though I suppose here, they’re just going with the stereotype, deserved or not.

    Well we know she isn’t a vegan…She would have put it right before or after Atheist.

    I heard about a woman who gave up on dating apps. Now she follows good looking guys to their homes, and shows up at their door with a clipboard, saying she’s with the Census. She asks for age, marital status, occupation, income, and whether they have a late model car – all the info the census and eligible women want to know.

    What’s in it for the guys? They get to compete over an extremely small pool of people with all three of these attributes: a) female, b) single, and c) willing to listen to someone drone on about our lord and savior Elon Musk.

    What’s in it for gals? A large pool of guys who are demonstrably rich enough to afford a nice car, and are almost certainly smart cookies in various high-tech fields with a bright future.

    If they can put up with the stanning, I think this is more promising for the women.

    That’s awesome. They’ll have a clearly a lot in common already, and can even sync their Teslas when they go on a date. More Tesla funny stories here, by the way:
