The rural, often remote lifestyle of the average farmer means that it is difficult, if not impossible to meet any women at all, let alone one with whom he wishes to spend the rest of his life. In times past, the farmer depended on either his family or friends to introduce him to potential partners, or would hope to find a girlfriend on one of his rare nights out. Part of the problem is the early morning required for farming, which puts many of the usual social opportunities for meeting women out of his reach. Luckily the internet has come along, providing a brilliant way for the farmer in search of love to find potential partners. So if you're such a farmer, follow these simple tips to get you started on the path to everlasting love. Check out a few websites before registering All dating websites will promise you a relationship made in heaven, but not all websites are equal. Some sites demand up-front fees before you can even view any of the profiles on their databases. Don't be tempted to part with any cash until you've completely satisfied yourself that the site is right for you. For your search for a mate to be successful you need to be able to interact with your chosen website easily, so have a look at a few examples to find a site that you feel comfortable using. Are you looking at the right site? Is the site aimed at your situation? Will it introduce you to women who are interested in a rural lifestyle? It's no good finding the potential lady of your dreams only to find that she won't consider anything other than a city lifestyle, so seek out a website which has already done some of the work for you. Dating sites often specialise in one or more areas, meaning that you should be able to source a dating site which meets your requirements. Take time over your profile Women love a sense of humour, but try too hard on your profile page and the jokes could fall flat. Have a read through other profiles to see how people try to make themselves stand out from the crowd. Think very carefully about the kind of woman you are hoping to attract and aim your description at her. Choose a photograph with great care. You want to show yourself at your best, but make sure it is a reasonably accurate representation of how you look. Prospective partners are never going to be impressed by a photograph that depicts you several decades ago! Now you just have to wait for potential mates to get in touch and before long you could find that love is really blossoming for you. Caroline Waterson grew up on a farm, making her uniquely familiar with the social problems associated with a farming lifestyle. She believes that any website which promotes dating farmers is one that she will rigorously support due to her background.
"Over drinks at a bar my date revealed many interesting details about himself. He used to live on 'the streets.' He claimed to have 'beat Spina Bifida.' He had had a fiancé in Japan who was open to him dating women while he was in the States. After all those amazing revelations I let him know our relationship would not be romantic. As we walked out of the bar he appeared to be suffering from some sort of stomach cramp. He told me he suffered from severe IBS and desperately needed a private bathroom. I have family members who suffer from Crohn's disease so I felt very sympathetic to his situation. I offered to let him use the bathroom in my apartment. After he had finished using the bathroom, he says, 'I know you said we could just be friends and that's fine. But, I was wondering if I could just watch you pee before I leave. I only want to watch.' P.S. — I did not let him watch me pee." -Miranda, 33
