Farmers dating site farmersonly
Swiping on dating apps is a breeze if you live in a town or city.But, when you're a young farmer living in a rural community, it's a whole other story. 31-year-old Mark Jervis — an arable farmer in Warwickshire, UK — entered the world of online dating four years ago in an effort to broaden his horizons after a big breakup and a series of "unsuccessful" flings with women in the area.Their bios frequently assure women that they know how to handle a blizzard, drought or power outage as well as run an agricultural business.And they feel compelled to remind women that farm houses are nothing to billionaire Ted Turner’s Montana ranch.“Mobile technology, smartphones, revolutionized how our members approach romance,” Miller explains.
One senior told him she now exchanges Christmas cards with 32 Farmers Only pals.
“Most farmers either marry a high school sweetheart or meet a spouse in college.
Farmers Only is there for people looking for love later in life.” Thirty-five percent of Farmers Only’s more than 500,000 members are older than 50, the site’s media director Michael Gober says.
The ads end with the words, “City folks just don’t get it.” Times have changed.
Farmers Only calculates that five percent of site members are city folks willing to move and share the country life with the right farmer, and that percentage is growing.
