Time and distance meant nothing


I was recently divorced, after being married 28 years. My best friend kept telling me that I needed to get out and meet people. She jokingly told me that she was going to create a dating profile for me, if I didn't give it a try. I finally gave in. I was born and raised on a horse/cattle farm and grew up in the farm equipment business. With my history, FarmersOnly caught my eye. I created a profile. After several months of casual dating, I decided this wasn't for me. One Sunday afternoon, I was bored and decided to try again.

On Tuesday, February 16, 2016 I received a message from a very kind man who lived in Mount Airy, North Carolina. I read his message and immediately disregarded it. That was too far away for me (I lived in Georgia). On Wednesday, February 17th, he sent another message, telling me Good Morning and that he hoped I had a good day. I didn't want to be rude, so I responded, thanking him and wishing him the same. He continued messaging me throughout the day on Wednesday and Thursday. On Friday, he asked if he could call me that evening. I said sure. I lost count of the number of hours we talked on the phone that Friday night.

He had also given Farmers Only one more shot and extended his radius, and that's how he found me. He laughed and told me that I might just get to liking him and if so, he would drive to Georgia and take me out to eat. We discussed meeting in person sometime within the next couple of months. Before the week was out, sight unseen, we had already decided that we were meant for each other....we were already planning our wedding before we met! Without hesitation, he told me that his plan was for us to live in Georgia. On Friday, February 26th, we met in person for the first time. We both drove 2+ hours each to meet half way. We spent the weekend together as if we had known each other our entire lives....EVERYTHING felt right from the beginning. We weren't strangers....I felt as if I had known him my entire life.

The following weekend, he made the trip to Georgia to meet my family. On Saturday, May 5, 2016, we went to visit my Daddy. He asked my Daddy's permission for my hand in marriage! (I was 48 Years old!) This really stole my heart! We went back to my house and he immediately pulled out the ring and asked me to marry him! Of course I SAID YES! On April 15th he moved to Georgia! We were married on April 25, 2016 on the beach at North Myrtle. The only ones present were our kids and grandkids. We announced our marriage via Facebook! We just celebrated our 2nd wedding anniversary and I love that man more and more everyday!

I could not imagine my life without him! Thanks to FarmersOnly, I found my soulmate, the man I am meant to spend the rest of my life with. When you meet "THE ONE" time and distance mean nothing. We talked, met and were married, all within 10 weeks! Responding to that message was the best decision I ever made in my life. - Tim & Melinda

They love the beach

Greetings! Just want to thank you for FarmersOnly. I met my husband, Lionel, on the website and we got married on January 30, 2018 and now in June 2018 is the religious ceremony. - Sara

What did you do on your first date? We met on FarmersOnly in February, 2017. Our first date, we went to the beach in Cabo Rojo, Puerto Rico.

When did you know that he was the one? I knew that he was the one like in May 2017 when he was my support through a rough time.

How did he propose? We traveled together in a cruise on November and in December he popped the question! On January 30, we got married in the court house.

What is your favorite thing about each other? We love the beach and our dogs and cats.

After e-Harmony and Match, they found love on FarmersOnly

My fiancé, James, and I met on FarmersOnly. We have so much in common and sometimes finish each other’s sentence. We have a saying “what else is there” when we find another thing in common or were going to say the same thing! He is from Rockport, Texas and I am from Yoakum, Texas. We started talking the end of January, 2016 and he proposed to me April 4, 2018! We are planning to get married April of 2019. We both used other dating websites such as e-Harmony and Match, none of those were successful. I was raised on a small ranch with cows and tractors and such on about 100 acres. I teased him when we first started dating because he hadn’t worked cows before or driven a tractor and of course I have. I called him my coastal country boy. Now he helps my family on the farm and loves it. He is now my coastal cowboy! <3. - Brandi

What did you do on your first date? Our first date was February 6, 2016. It was the day of the Super Bowl. We watched the game and he played his guitar for me. ❤️❤️

When did you know that he was the one? I’m not sure? I didn’t think it would go anywhere after the first date, but I was wrong! It was most likely shortly after we met, maybe a month or so. We have so many things in common and turned out we have a mutual friend.

How did he propose? He took me home to Yoakum, Texas where I grew up. He told my parents he was going to propose so they knew. I kind of had an idea he was going to do it because I knew when the rings were going to be delivered which was on April 4, 2018 (the same day he proposed). He took me to my parent's pasture and parked by their fish tank. He wanted to feed the fish so we brought fish food with us. I was driving his truck. He got out before me and I met him at the tailgate. I was reaching for the fish food and was picking my teeth with a toothpick. He proposed simply. Right then he knelt down, said my full name and of course asked if he could marry me.

What is your favorite thing about each other? We have so much fun together it’s hard to say. We have a natural vibration, a strong chemistry and both have a sense of humor and we get one another.

He saw her through a difficult time

I met my husband, James (Jimbo), on FarmersOnly after losing my husband of 13 years to suicide. Jimbo and I both love horses and it was a perfect match. We will be together 4 years in July and married 3 in July. I was a little scared of online dating, but I’m a country girl at heart and knew this was the best one to try. Thank you. - Kimberly What towns/states are y'all from? James is from Knoxville, Tennessee and I am from Dalton, Georgia.

What did you do on your first date? When we met I was living in Etowah, Tennessee. On our first date we met in Madisonville, Tennessee and went to eat dinner, then went to the park to walk and talk for a while.

When did you know that he was the one? I knew he was the one after my Dad passed away. He was there through the whole process.

How did he propose? He proposed to me in Gatlinburg, Tennessee while on the chair lift.

What is your favorite thing about each other? My favorite thing about him is that he is a good Christian Man. He said his favorite thing about me was my heart. We both love horses and the country life.


First date? Ghost tour.

I had been on many dating sites but I couldn’t find my “country boy”. So my coworker convinced me to try FarmersOnly. I met Michael through FarmersOnly 1 month into my subscription. My first correspondence through the site to Michael was “you’re cute” he responded back with “you’re cute too,” we texted back and forth for about 6 weeks until we finally met in Nashville for a ghost tour on October 29th, 2016. He was from Huntsville, Alabama and drove over 2 hours to meet me. I knew the minute I met him, he was the one for me and we were going to get married. And on Christmas Day 2017, he popped the question and I said yes! We are getting married this year! Michael was the only man I met in person from Farmers Only, but I can tell you it only takes one to meet the man of your dreams and my true to life country boy. - Amy

What towns/states are y'all from? I'm from Franklin, Tennessee, and he's from Huntsville, Alabama.

What did you do on your first date? He decided to make the two hour trek up to Nashville to meet me after we had met and chatted on Farmersonly.com for about six weeks. Our first face to face date was on October 29th 2016 at the Opry Mills Mall in the food court right outside the sushi restaurant. Through our texting we had discovered that we both enjoyed sushi, so we had planned to meet at the sushi restaurant and have dinner, but all did not go as planned. I think we were both a bit nervous, so we decided to postpone dinner and just go out on the town for a little while. He had a surprise waiting for me; he had bought tickets to a ghost tour in downtown Nashville, so we decided to make our way to lower Broadway to enjoy the honky tonks before our tour. He took me to one of his favorite places, the Wildhorse salon, where we sat at the bar and had a few drinks and shared the pimento cheese dip with these huge crackers.

We left a short while later to go attend our tour but it wasn't quite time yet so while walking through downtown we found a small Japanese restaurant. We both were not hungry yet so we just drank some sake. Finally the ghost tour was about to start. When we arrived for the ghost tour, the host began to call out the names of the people who had purchased tickets. She called out everyone's name except for ours but called out one additional name; Daniel. After a few seconds, he said, "oh, that's me" I thought it was funny that he seemed to have forgotten his name or something because at the time I only knew him as his middle name, Michael, but Daniel is in fact his first name. Anyways, as we are walking around the city on our ghost tour we start to get closer and closer.

By the third stop at the Capital Building, I don't think we could have lasted any longer and we had our first kiss. After that we pretty much made out all over Nashville while we walked on our ghost tour. I am sure we had to be very annoying to the others patrons on the tour. Almost to the end of the tour, we went through Painter's Alley and decided to abandon the tour and stopped in another bar to listen to the live music that they were playing. After a drink or two, we decided on one more bar stop. This one was Tootsies. We took a petty cab from Painter's Alley to Tootsies but did not have enough cash to pay, so Michael went into Tootsies to get some cash while I waited with the petty cab driver for him to come back. I remember telling the driver that I was sorry that we did not have any cash as we had just given all of our cash to our fifteen year old son to go to the mall. This in fact was true, as Michael brought his son with him to Nashville and had in fact gave him all his cash just prior to meeting me. I guess this is where I was already claiming Michael's son as my own.

We had just one more drink at Tootsies before I started to get really hungry, so we went to the Nashville cafe. By this time is was 3 o'clock in the morning and we decided we had better get back. So we got back to Opry Mills to pick up our cars, but we couldn't seem to leave each other just yet. We talked and giggled until 4:30 in the morning that night. It was the best first blind date I have ever had, and now we are getting married, so it will officially be my last blind date!

How did he propose? Michael proposed to me on Christmas day 2017. While I knew he had a ring for me because we picked it out together, I did not know when he was going to pop the question. I thought it might happened on Christmas day, but the whole day went by without a peep. It wasn't until late that evening when we were getting ready for bed that he sat down next to me and asked me if I would marry him, and of course I said yes! We set the wedding date for April 28, 2018, and are busy preparing for our lives together.

What do you tell people who are still waiting for "the one"? I am 38 and it took me a while but I tell my friends who are still dating that "It only takes one."

Tennessee + Missouri = Love.

I met my husband 5 years ago on FarmersOnly and it's been absolutely amazing! I lived in East Tennessee on my family's farm and John lived in Southern Missouri with his own cow/calf pair operation. We were several (hundred) miles apart, but decided that our connection was strong enough to give it a shot! - Elise

What towns/states are y'all from?

I (Elise) am from Maryville, Tennessee and John is from St Louis, Missouri, but he left the city as soon as he could and he never went back!  After college he landed in West Plains, Missouri and that's where we are today!

What did you do on your first date?

We drove to Dickson,  Tennessee to meet and ate at a little Mexican restaurant and talked for hours!

When did you know that he was the one?

I remember thinking "well,  crap!" as soon as I saw him in person because he was even more handsome than his pictures!  The second I saw him I knew I would be moving to Missouri!

What is your favorite thing about each other?

John is the hardest worker I have ever known and he's very intelligent, but my favorite thing today is what an awesome father he is to our little boy!  He says his favorite thing is my smile (...and then asked me why I wanted to know that at 6:30am on a Monday morning!)


They knew they were soulmates the first time they met

My husband, Colton, and I meet on your site November of 2015, he likes to say he was enchanted by my eyes but I still giggle and think it may have been the mix of clevage and camo. We met in person that December meeting in Branson because it was middle point, me being from Kansas and him from Arkansas. After our first meeting we just knew that we were soulmates. I visited him every weekend just about until July of 2016 when I finally moved to Arkansas and we were married that August. We are now happily married and enjoying life all thanks to your site. We do get some trouble from our friends because of where we met, being in our late 20s our peers understand Tinder or Plenty of Fish but don’t quite get FarmersOnly. I couldn’t be happier with the experience I had on this website. Thank you! - Lizzy What did you do on your first date? We walked the boardwalk and just spent some time getting to know each other face to face.

When did you know that he was the one? It was our meeting in Branson that sealed the deal for me, knowing he was actually him and that he didn’t change from the persona he gave through text and phone calls was wonderful.

How did he propose? He didn’t propose traditionally, about a week after we had begun talking he would tell me that he was going to marry me.  About everyday he would remind me that I was going to be his wife.  When I finally made the move down to Arkansas to live with him, we were out fishing in a pond and he looked at me and asked what day in August I wanted to get married.

What is your favorite thing about each other? My favorite thing about him is that he can keep me laughing and smiling every day.  It doesn’t matter how bad the day has been or if we’re angry with each other he always makes time to make me laugh. Colton says his favorite thing about me is how kind and understanding I am, and my beautiful eyes aren’t too bad either.
