6 singletons are hoping to find a suitable match in the newest dating series to hit RTÉ1.

Love in the Country is based on the Fremantle Media reality show Farmer Wants a Wife, but features an array of rural (and some non-farming) singletons looking for love.

A spokesperson for the production company told That’s Farming editor, Catherina Cunnane:

“The six lovely singletons come from various backgrounds, but the one thing they have in common is they are all living in rural Ireland.”

“Let’s face it, when living in rural Ireland; you do not have too many dating options.”

“The six rural romantics are hoping to find people willing to give country living a try.”

The six singletons include:

  • Robert Murphy (32), a pharmacist and part-time farmer from West Cork;
  • Alanagh Loftus (20), a veterinary nursing student & sheep farmer;
  • George Quirke (36), a land custodian from Carlow;
  • Fiona Moore (32), a restaurant and pub owner in Donegal;
  • Jano Evans (22) is a coffee shop owner and part-time farmer;
  • Edwina Walshe (49) is a café owner from Mayo.

The spokesperson continued: “The producers of the show are now on the search for their perfect match.”

“Therefore, if you have you always dreamed of leaving the big smoke for a life in the country, check out the dating profiles of our lovely gang of singles looking for love,” the spokesperson concluded.

If you are interested in dating one of them, please fill in the contact form or email – [email protected] – and one of the team will be in touch. Filming is due to take place in early January.

Dating advice

You should “unapologetically fly your freak flag, according to life coach, Jeanne Sullivan Billeci, also known as The Soul Mate Coach.

Billeci advises singletons that being their most authentic self without holding anything back is the “secret sauce” to attracting a partner who supports and elevates them instead of holding them back.

After years of coaching in the corporate world—helping people grow in leadership, marketing and business/personal relationships—certified life coach Jeanne Sullivan Billeci decided to pursue her life passion and become The Soul Mate Coach.

She believes her purpose is to help bring soul mates together, making the world a better place and has penned a book entitled Be the Soul Mate you Want to Attract: Step Into Your Sovereignty and Magnetize a Higher Love, where she offers advice to “accelerate your soul mate attraction journey”.

The life coach turned author commented: “It seems like common sense, but society and social media encourage us to tone ourselves down because we will scare people away if we are completely ourselves.”

“Many clients in Ireland—especially women—are still afraid to show confidence because they will be teased as having notions.”
