Veterinarian Creates Ag Dating Website
After hearing single friends complain about the difficulty of meeting people with agriculture roots and similar interests, Brandy Phelps created a dating website for country folks. The site www.ag-personalities.com officially went online in August, 2007.
  There are other ag-related dating sites, Phelps says, but they tend to be very specific, for farmers or people who like horses, for example. "Mine is broad and general - it has that country state of mind," she explains. "When I say agriculture, I'm talking about people who hunt, fish, rodeo, camp, ride horses, raise livestock, farm, ride 4-wheelers, watch NASCAR, and love big tires on jacked up trucks. My hope is to bring those people together wherever they live."
  Phelps, a Virginia horse veterinarian, works on the site on her time off - checking emails, screening applicants and making sure the site is working properly. As a Christian, she says she sets standards and rejects profiles that are lewd and include curse words. She realizes, however, that some profiles may not be truthful, so she warns clients to use common sense when connecting with others on the website. Phelps lists several terms and conditions for members, who must be 18 or older.
  Phelps offers memberships for different lengths of time: $13.95/month to $145/year. She also offers a free 14-day trial period.
