|Family time spent feeding the cows in the early Spring.|
A friend of mine actually introduced me to FarmersOnly and I decided one day to check it out.
The site actually offered three free days of service at the time. I decided to check it out for free, but there was no way I was going to pay for a dating website. (My husband on the other hand fell for the $15.95 a month hook, line, and sinker)
If you knew me personally you would know how outgoing, loud, and super talkative I am. I had to be the last person who needed a dating website. I was insistent I didn't need it.
But really, what did I have to lose?
I actually met a few "farm" boys on the website. I have become great friends with an Ag teacher in Iowa, and of course my wonderful husband!
My husband and I spoke via email and texting for just over a month before we had our first phone call.
The first time I met him in person it was on the exit ramp up the road from our house.
We had about 5 minutes together before he took me to his parents' house to shower.
I then spent the next 2 hours meeting his brothers, their wives, their children, and his other friends and neighbors.
It wasn't really supposed to work like that. We had hoped to have a few hours together before I met practically every person he knew. But, thanks to Iowa traffic and a tire that blew on me in Minnesota, that didn't happen.
I spent the next week following him around on the farm (Just because I was there didn't mean he stopped being a farmer!), a few days with his sister in laws, and then finally a really hard goodbye.
Not too soon after that we decided that we were head over heels in love.
I transferred from Purdue University to South Dakota State University, finished my degree in Agricultural Education, and married the man of my dreams.
People always ask me how I met my husband, or how I ended up in South Dakota. I really have enjoyed telling the story and love that people get a kick out of the beginning to the rest of our lives.
I owe FarmersOnly so much for introducing me to my husband and I tell everyone that is looking for that special someone that FarmersOnly is a great place to start!
