Farmer Founds First Rural Dating Service
Single men and women in rural areas now have a way to meet new people of the opposite sex, thanks to the efforts of a Minnesota farmer who's founded "Rural Singles of America", a new dating service specifically geared to the farm population.
Budde, who was divorced several years ago and has patronized other dating services, says recent stories in the national press about troubles young men have meeting eligible young women in rural areas prompted him to start Rural Singles.
"Opportunities for meeting people of the opposite sex with similar interests is often difficult in rural areas," says Budde, who's service provides members with a monthly listing of eligible singles on a national basis.
Singles are listed by first name, phone number, city and state along with a brief description that includes likes and dislikes. Subscribers to the service can contact anyone that interests them.
Budde says he expects demand to be tremendous. "Farm Journal recently ran an article asking about singles on the farm and received over 2,000 inquires. Another story in the Wall Street Journal on single farmers also generated tremendous interest so we expect this idea to take off and hope to provide a valuable service."
Cost for the service is $20 for two monthly listings of eligible singles listed by state. Each two month renewal costs $15. "That's in line with the cost of other national dating services," says Budde.
