The makers of Gogglebox Ireland, Irelands Got Talent, and Ireland’s Fittest Family are seeking singletons living in rural Ireland to participate in a new TV show.
Producers told That’s Farming that the show aims to “find romance for people whose career ties them to the countryside and whose dating life suffers as a result”.
The spokesperson for the production company continued: “The company is also looking for city dwellers who dream of moving to the countryside to find love and discovering a new way of life.”
“Do you live in rural Ireland? Are you single? Want to meet someone special? If you find dating tricky because of a lack of options in your rural area, then we would love to hear from you.”
“To find out more, email us telling us about yourself and why you would like to take part,” the spokesperson concluded.
If either of these sounds like you, then email [email protected] to find out more.
We previously interviewed Westmeath love guru, Mairead Loughman, who has sent over 5,500 singletons on dates through her company, LoveHQ.ie – Here are her tips:
- If your plan of action is to go online and match with your future love, then look the part. A good picture speaks a thousand words. A selfie is good if done correctly but have a nice background or put effort into taking a decent photo.
- Good conversation is key, whether that is online or the old-fashioned face-to-face dating. Talk about your interests, stray away from negativity and show interest in what the other person has to say. Try a search for common ground and use that as a basis for conversing.
- Lead the way when it comes to dating. If you really like someone that you’re talking to, then don’t be afraid to ask them out on a date. Taking the lead when it comes to dating can be an attractive trait, it displays some confidence.
- Dress to impress! Whether you’re going on a date or taking those Tinder photos, always try to present the best of yourself. Looks are not the point, it’s about showing a level care and effort and if you look your best, you’ll tend to feel your best.
- Don’t give away too much information from the get-go. Start off simple, work your way to getting to know someone, and be smart with your conversation. If you’re moving on in the years and still live at home with your parents or if you never dated before, it’s not always the best foot forward. Don’t dwell on your negative points, focus on your positives and your interests.
