To make it easier for those trying to find love this year, we list 5 dating apps/websites for single farmers to consider.
This is probably the most famous of all the dating apps. Downloaded directly from the App Store, it uses the method of swiping left and swiping right on the people, which do, or do not suit you. Up to 200,000 people are members of tinder in Ireland.
It is mostly described as a casual hookup app, however, and may not suit a person who is out to find the love of their life. If you are single, somewhere between the ages of 18-30, why not give Tinder a go?
This dating website and app boast the fact that they give special attention to those in rural areas. The rural dating function on their site allows you the option to seek out and find farmers who want to date. This site is designed for people aged 35+. So, if you’re looking for a more mature connection, in rural Ireland, this is your best bet.
For the ladies out there, who would like to make the first move, Bumble is the app for you. The appeal of Bumble is that the ladies are the ones that have to make the first step, if they like what they see. The age bracket roughly for this app is around 18-24.
Definitely one of the older generation, this app has an average user base around the region of 50-70 years old. It advertises itself as a way to meet new friends.
So, if you’re not in the mood for love and would just like some company or someone to have a chat with, MeetMe could be ideal, and who says friends can’t become something more?
Plenty of Fish
One of the world’s largest dating platforms, with more than half of its users coming in under the age of 36. There is an opportunity to really express who you are, as the profile section is very detailed.
You get the opportunity to write about yourself and all of your interests. If you feel the other dating apps are too superficial then this may be the one for you.
All of the websites and apps above do offer a free service but in order to get their premium advantages, then you will need to pay, however, the basic option is more than enough to test out the app and see if it is something you enjoy.
Phone Call (Bonus)
Aside from apps and finding love, this is a strange time for everyone, and social isolation and loneliness are rampant across rural areas right now.
Even if you are struggling to find love or that special someone, know that people are there for you and they are only a phone call away. If you are in the lucky position where you have special someone, maybe pick up the phone and give a friend a call who might not be as lucky as you, just for a chat.
If you’ve tried and dating apps just are not your thing, then do not despair, the organisers of the Lisdoonvarna Matchmaking Festival are trying everything in their power to be set for 2021. So be prepared and have those dancing shoes at the ready.
