I’m Jerry Miller, founder of FarmersOnly.com. There are basically two groups in America. Group one: their lives revolve around four dollar cups of coffee, taxi cabs, blue suits, high heels, conference rooms and getting ahead at all costs in the corporate world. If you fall into this group you’re probably on the wrong online dating site. Group two: they enjoy blue skies, wide open spaces, raising animals, appreciating nature and truly understand the meaning of Southern hospitality, even if they don’t live in the South. This group makes up America’s Heartland. This is not a geographic area, this is a slice of America with good old fashioned traditional values, values that were never lost by the farmer.
So why did I start this new online dating and friendship finder?
I truly feel there is more of a need for this matchmaking site than any other singles site on the web. You see, as owner of a company that works with thousands of farms and ranches across the country, I’ve met a number of single farmers of all different ages with one thing in common–they were all having a difficult time finding someone special. Why? Let’s face it, how many new people do you meet working on the farm all day?
One farmer told me the story of her frustrations in trying to find her match. She thought trying online dating may be the answer and joined some of the big national online dating sites. What she found was that the city folks that dominated these online dating sites couldn’t relate to her lifestyle. They wanted to meet at 9:00 p.m. for a cup of coffee when she would typically be preparing (going to bed) for the next day, which started at 5:00 a.m. Caffeine at that hour was the last thing she needed!
I also talked to a number of people living in small towns surrounded by farmland, where everybody already knows everybody. If they didn’t marry their high school sweetheart, it was difficult to meet someone new who understands the rural lifestyle.
City folks just don’t get it!tm
Because their stories were so common, I decided to do some research.
When I looked for sites for farmers online dating, I found sites that claimed to cater to farmers, ranchers, and country dwellers, but the majority of postings seemed to be from people living in big cities. How many farms have you seen in New York City? Just looking at the postings, they sure didn’t look like farmers to me! I decided to create an online dating service that’s 100% for farmers, ranchers, and those who can relate to the rural and country lifestyle.
Instead of asking what your astrological sign is, at FarmersOnly.com I ask if you raise or breed alpacas, horses, cattle, chickens, dogs, goats, rabbits, sheep, grow crops, or if you’re an organic farmer, student farmer, cowboy, cowgirl, or just a farmer wanna be! How many singles sites do that?
FarmersOnly.com is not affiliated with any other online dating service and we will not sell your name or information to any other online dating site, so our members are unique and not a carbon copy like many of the other sites.
I hope you enjoy your time at FarmersOnly.com. Your suggestions are always welcome as we strive to make this site the best it can be for down-to-earth small town and country folks throughout America’s Heartland coast to coast.
P.S. When dating online, posting a photo greatly increases the odds of meeting that special someone!
