What you need is a real farmers only dating site where you know for sure everyone is a farmer – so all you need to do is find YOUR farmer among them.
Farmers online dating might seem complicated, but it’s actually the easiest thing in the world: you just need to plant that seed and watch it grow!
"The downside of hunt balls and race meets is they can be cliquey," Lucy says.
"There are amazing men out there who want a wife and children but feel as if they've been sitting on a tractor for the last 10 years and haven't met anyone." Charlotte, however, is socially proactive. But it's rare to be introduced to a new face and even if I am, the likelihood is that they'll know my friends." For many rural communities, the hunt ball is an annual highlight, organised ostensibly to raise money for the local hunt, but presenting locals with a rare opportunity to dress up and swing each other around on the dance floor.
"I'd never go to one on my own," Charlotte says, "but as long as I have a wingman, I'm fine." This is exactly the right approach, according to dating expert Mary Balfour.
"Find a dating buddy; someone who is in the same situation as you," she says.
"Single friends will also give you moral support if you're feeling depressed about meeting the third frog in a row." If you've been brought up in a country community, the chances are you will already know a lot of the people living locally.
