This is the site for you whether you are country-based or a city-dweller who loves gardening, walking, fishing, riding or any other country hobby.Dating can be a daunting prospect, especially if you are dating later in life and our aim is to make it as straightforward as possible in a secure environment.We have a fine heritage of successful match-making having launched the original, award-winning 'Farmer Wants a Wife' initiative back in 1999.Since then, through the series in the magazine and the BAFTA nominated TV show, we have been bringing together happy couples across the country.So much so that it's got Rebecca Holman in a deserved tizz: when exactly do you call a relationship a relationship?She talks of horror stories of friends of hers who have been dating a man for months, but when she's introduced as his girlfriend at do's, he goes pale at the thought of it.Any bio that states your job, height, university, address and siblings is an immediate turn-off.Your date wants to get to know you at their leisure, not read what effectively sounds like a background check compiled by a paranoid bot. That means no chat-up lines, no jokes so wet you could wring them like a sponge, and no over-complicated puns. "Dog lover and kitten lover" might make girls want to BFF you, but they won't want to go on a date with you. "Lover of hugs and Sunday snuggles" might make someone deliver a bucket of sick to your front door.

Everyone knows it's one big, edited, selective lie, but hey..we're all doing it... Obviously, we don't mean you should actually only spend two minutes writing it.You need to trawl through your photographic repertoire until you find a photo with the best lighting, the best angles, the best side. Rule number one: Your bio should be short and sweet. No one wants to think you're the kind of guy who tucks himself into bed on a Thursday night and spends an hour writing a Tinder personal statement whilst sipping a green tea and listening to Einaudi. By all means do spend an entire Thursday evening in bed writing the damn thing, just don't make it look like you did. Your name, age and distance are already listed, and that's all you need.
