Dating for ranchers
I treated my disappointment with the hope that outside city limits there was a place—Farmland, America—where the cowboys were monogamous and the vegetable growers knew how to ask a girl out.
So I started asking farmers about their love lives with plans to write about what I found.
Some were in their 20s, young and searching, and some were much older.
Living in a small town and feeling like your dating options are running a bit thin?
You my dear are in a relationship with agriculture. Chances are you will want to go on frequent date nights and the chances are you will get plenty of date nights. If you get all gussied up and the tractor breaks down or the cows get out. There are so many different factors that could take away from alone time with your farmer.
Cherish the time together on the tractor, milking parlor, in the grain truck, feeding calves, chasing those naughty cows that got out, etc.
When a friend of mine moved to a rural part of California, she called her new home “BYOB” or “Bring Your Own Boyfriend.” “The pickings out here are slim,” she said.Country is the place to find dates who love the country lifestyle just as much as you do.Our member base of country loving men and women are looking for someone who shares the same goals and interests, so whether you're a fan of country music or barbeques or riding western, you'll find someone whose idea of a good time matches with yours.But I also had my own agenda: I wanted to know if I moved to the country whether there would be someone there worth having a relationship with.I was looking for the pastoral version of a romantic cheat-sheet, a farmer’s guide to successful matches.
