Farmers are not interested in one night stands and are flocking to a dating agency to find laid back women.
Lisa Woods, 33, from Co Louth works as a matchmaker at Intro – an Irish dating agency and said rural men are proactive in finding love.
She said: “The biggest problem is that there is a lack of opportunity and everyone knows one another in rural towns.
“We’ve a big pool of farmers from Galway,Cork,Donegal and Kerry looking to meet women who are hardworking and easy going.
“Farmers are definitely modernising and don’t expect to meet someone who will move to the farm or be a housewife anymore.
“In fairness they are brave and are open to travelling to meet someone, which for a lot of them is out of their comfort zone.”
And Laura says farmers in their 20s are proactive in finding love and even have men in their 70s who are widows making use of the service.
She said: “They’re not interested in one night stands and a lot of them aren’t on social media so they want to give this a go.
“We had a farmer from Offaly who we matched with a woman living in Dublin and they ended up getting married and moved halfway to Kildare where they could both commute to do their job.”
