“Mobile technology, smartphones, revolutionized how our members approach romance,” Miller explains.Before smartphones evolved into a palm-sized media centers, farmers had to wait until they got home at the end of a long, dawn-to-dusk day before they could to sit at their computers and log on.Now, they can Skype with a potential date, text an answer to a “flirt” or swap photos while they’re sitting on a tractor.Miller takes phone calls from seniors who find technology a challenge and helps them upload photos.“Most farmers either marry a high school sweetheart or meet a spouse in college.
She said the people who ran these other sites had no clue about what’s important in life.
Farmers post notices of horse shows, cattle auctions and festivals, and invite anyone, male and female, to attend the event with them.
One senior told him she now exchanges Christmas cards with 32 Farmers Only pals.
But if she needs a university or Starbucks to fuel her creativity, the nearest city that has both is 200 miles away.
Geography can pose a challenge, so Miller tries to make Farmers Only a place where members can find social solace even if they’re not finding dates.
