Update On Rural Singles Of America"We've had tremendous response to FARM SHOW's article," reports Dean Budde, Mankato, Minn. He's the originator of "Rural Singles of America," a newsletter specifically geared to single people living in rural areas (featured in Vol. 9, No. .1).
"This newsletter is a communications link for rural singles," notes Budde, who started the newsletter after reading stories about the troubles rural singles have in meeting other eligible singles who like rural living.
His idea's really taken off. Since his first issue last year with its 42 listings, each newsletter has grown. His latest issue had 272 listings from men and women throughout the country. Budde notes that "singles" listed in the newsletter range in age from 19 to 76. He adds that more and more women are now joining the service.
Singles are listed by first name, phone number, city and state, along with a short description which includes likes and dislikes. Interspersed throughout the newsletter are helpful hints for the first meeting, colorful quips and advice for building relationships.
Cost for the service is $20 for two monthly listings. Each two month renewal costs $15.
