They thought FarmersOnly was a blog about farming

Here at, we love hearing y'alls so sweet love stories. Dawn sent us a message on our Facebook so she could share her and Robin's love story. 

We met on right away. He was the only one I met. We both thought it was a blog about farming, discovered it was a dating site and I filled out the profile, he didn't. He sent me a canned message (one that popped up I guess), I told him thank you for sending me a note, but with no profile I was not interested. We continued to write back and forth, the trusted the phone, then we met. This was one year ago 6.26.16. We were engaged a few weeks later and married 11.12.16!

What towns/state are y'all from? 
Robin is from Salem, OR and I am from Vancouver, WA.

What did you do on your first date? 
We met at BJ's at Jantzen Beach, Portland, OR.

When did you know that he was the one? 
We had spoke on the phone a few times and could tell we wanted to meet. He had no picture on his profile, but the things he said and the questions we were answering told we were headed in the right direction. We knew that first meeting that this was a match.

What is your favorite thing about him? 
He is a REAL farmer, not just likes the country, but loves farming and he includes me in the work. He is strong, loves the Lord, is caring, funny and we can communicate!

Congratulations on your relationship Dawn and Robin!
We wish you love and happiness!

Her smile stopped him dead in his tracks

Patrick: This is the story of how I met this beautiful lady, here. I’m a Senior Project Manager in heavy civil construction. One evening, I was sitting around with nothing better to do than to surf the internet and watch TV. And I saw an ad for FarmersOnly. And I thought, “Well, what the hell?” So, I opened up an account and set up a profile. I just wanted somebody down to earth. Somebody I could talk to. Somebody I could share…share the lifestyle that I enjoy with.

Lori: And meanwhile, up in Pennsylvania, being a single mom of a teenager was very difficult in its own. And I was looking for someone that wanted to enjoy the country life, that loved horses. That had a farm. Just enjoyed being down home. And a FarmersOnly commercial came on. And my daughter says, “Ma, you ought to make an account.” So, she helped me make a profile. And I got on FarmersOnly. And I was looking around and came across this appaloosa. This appaloosa was absolutely gorgeous. So then I looked, and I was like, “Oh wow. There is a guy standing there.” And that’s when I seen Patrick’s profile.

Patrick: So, I got a notification. You know, many of the people that were visiting my page. But, I saw this picture of this gorgeous woman. Her smile just stopped me dead in my tracks.

Lori: So, we started emailing at first. And then I gave him a call and I said, “Patrick, I would like to come down to meet you face to face.”

Patrick: We went on a first date. Took her to the Air and Space Museum. We went and showed her lots of airplanes and got her into a flight simulator. Flipper her upside down and turned her around and we had a good time. Went out to dinner and then just went back to the hotel. They have a patio outside and we sat there under the stars and listened to music and talked for hours and it a great night. After that, we just knew we hit it off. We started, obviously, seeing each other regularly. In June last year, we moved here. Lori moved in. And in November, we were married. Got it in Southern Virginia. In a barn, of course. A very nice barn. But it was a barn.

Lori: I love shooting. I love hunting, fishing, pretty much anything outdoors. 

Patrick: Yeah. We do hunt together. I think we both missed out on a lot in our life and that we’re making up for every minute. So, if we’re not working, you’ll find us together. Whether it’s cooking in the kitchen or…we do all the work together out here. We clean. We plant. We garden. Tend to the horses. 

Lori: We have about a little over an hour commute. We usually talk the whole way till work.

Patrick: Yep. And then we just…we can’t get enough of each other. She is a extremely beautiful woman. She’s got a strong heart. She’s very loyal, very hard working. She’s kind. She’s strong. I’ve never had somebody who filled every need in me the way she does.

Lori: He’s my best friend. My companion. He’s everything to me. Definitely very intelligent. Very loving. Very devoted. Very caring. You also have a very big heart.

Patrick: We love telling our story of how we met. It’s a great story, we think. And when you tell people, you get mixed reactions. You know?

Lori: And after hearing our story, I’ve actually had quite a few friends actually join FarmersOnly. But, the first reaction was, “Oh my gosh.” It’s a surprise factor to a lot of people. And thanks to FarmersOnly, I found the love of my lifetime.

Patrick: Indeed. Could not be happier.

Clint took Maria to a fast food restaurant on their first date

Here at, we love hearing y'alls so sweet love stories. Maria and Client are just the CUTEST, and they're expecting their first kiddo! We got to email with Maria for a bit this week and are happy to share her story. 

 If you would have told me 6 months ago I would be engaged to the man I've always dreamed of, living on a beautiful stretch of land and pregnant with his child I would laughed in your face. I joined FarmersOnly on a whim because I was tired of meeting the same kind of guy. I've tried other sites and I've tried meeting men organically and yet still found the that I just couldn't find the kind of guy I was looking for so I figured what the hell, what do I have to lose. I was on the site on and off for about a year. My membership was just about to expire and I still had my doubts but was hanging onto hope. I looked through my email one final time and came across someone that caught my eye. Ultimately it was his sarcastic email poking fun at my extensively written profile that kept my interest. I gave him my number and told him to use it if he so chooses. To my delight he called me the next day and since then my life has never been the same and never will be.

What towns/states are y'all from? 
We both live in Texas. He is originally from Lampasas and I'm a yankee transplant living in Austin. We both find it hilarious that I'm a yankee and he's a born and raised Texan.

What did you do on your first date? 
Our first date was magical, amazing and simple. I insisted on driving out to meet him to make sure he wasn't lying about his situation and I didn't join FarmersOnly to hang out in the city where I live. We met at Storms which is a fast food joint that his parents had their first date which I thought was adorable and the only reason I would accept going to a fast food joint on a first date!

Also Lampasas is a small town and doesn't have too many options anyway and I do love a good greasy burger on occasion. He then took me out to his families 400 acres. He bought lots of fruit like pineapple and cantaloupe and had me target shoot and I loved it! He then built me a fire and we just talked all night long and fell asleep under the stars. I'll never forget when I asked him if he needed any help and he told me in his southern accent, "No darling, you just sit there and look pretty" and I nearly died! At that moment I thought, finally a real man!

We had literally talked for over 12 hours straight. Although I was still skeptical I called my mom the next morning and told her that her prayers had been answered!

When did you know that he was the one? 
We've only know each other now since January 23rd but for him it was love at first site. For me it took about 2 weeks because I was so guarded and had so many walls up from being hurt before. Something in me knew right away I just still wouldn't let myself fall though.

What is your favorite thing about him? 
It's really hard to narrow down the one thing I like most about him because there isn't just one thing. It's everything. There is not a thing I would change. I love everything about him, even his flaws and broken parts because that is what makes him real and him. We are bound and I never knew a love like this could exist. I love his big heart, how kind and patient he is with me and his sense of humor! He is my mirror and I've learned to love myself so in turn I can truly love him.

Why'd you write in to us? 
I would love to share my story because I have been through hell and back. I've overcome so much and stayed strong and true to myself making many mistakes along the way and I'm sure many mistakes to come. However, now I don't have to do it alone, nobody should. I'm very thankful to FarmersOnly for creating such a site. I've had incredible experiences and some not so but it was all worth it in the end.

Congratulations on your life together Maria and Clint! We wish you love, and happiness, for all the rest of your days!

They're getting married and moving to Arkansas!

Here at, we love hearing y'alls so sweet love stories. Debbie and George are gettin' hitched next month and we're SO happy for them. We gabbed with Debbie for a while this week. 

What towns/states are y'all from? 
We currently call Burton, Texas our home. I grew up in the area, George grew up in the Checotah/Muskogee area of Oklahoma. We plan to move to Arkansas in the near future - something I have always wanted to do, and George is extremely happy with that area also.

What did you do on your first date? 
Our first "date" was having breakfast with my "breakfast club," which is a group of retirees - most of whom are widowed, divorced, or never married. The little town of Burton (population 300) is an agriculture based community and is home of the Texas Cotton Gin, the oldest operating cotton gin in America. George had heard so much about the "breakfast club" and he was anxious to meet everyone.

When did you know that he was the one? 
I knew he was the one when over and over we discovered that we had so much in common - we called it our "blessed connection." From the first few weeks of exchanging emails, then texts, then phone calls we continued to find that we shared the same likes and dislikes.

What is your favorite thing about him? 
My favorite thing about him is that he is compassionate. I am handicapped, and in one of our early emails I asked him if he was sure he wanted to date "an old woman with a cane". He is always looking for ways to make life easier for me, and loves me despite my limp.

Congratulations on your engagement Debbie and George! We wish you love, and happiness, for all the rest of your days!

What towns/states are y'all from? 
We are both from a small town called Marmaduke, Arkansas. We had just never met because he is 13 years older an is also on the river half the year working as a river boat captain.

What did you do on your first date? 
After we had talked for several months we decided to meet up for lunch. It went so good we left the next week for Eureka Springs, Arkansas for a vacation.

When did you know that he was the one? 
I think we both pretty much knew from the get go we wanted to be together.

What is your favorite thing about him? 
My favorite thing about him is the fact that he loves my daughter and would do anything for her.

Congratulations on your marriage Kerri and Sebastian! We wish you love, and happiness, for all the rest of your days!

Meet Patrick and Lori, a FarmersOnly marriage from Virginia

Y'all look like one of those couples that would be on

Here at, we love hearing y'alls so sweet love stories. Marissa chatted with us about her husband Lee, who she met on FarmersOnly.

Where are y'all from?
Lee lived in Warner Robins, Georgia and I lived in Albany, Georgia. We both now live in our home that we purchased together last year in Fort Valley, Georgia.

What did you do on your first date?
There was about 100 miles in between us, so we met in the middle in Cordell, Georgia. We ate dinner around 7 and then sat on the tail fate of his truck talking until after midnight. The only reason we went home was because it started raining.

When did you know that he was the one?
The night I met him, i pretty much knew he was the one. We met on a Wednesday, then he drove down to see me on Sunday and after that we spent every weekend together until I found a job in Warner Robins and moved. I did this after only four months together. We said the "L" word after only two weeks... we both admit to knowing we loved one another from the start.

What is your favorite thing about him?
I can't name just one! He has the biggest heart, but yet, he's the stronger person I know. He works hard for a living, so his hands are rough and calloused. I love that. One of my most favorite things about him though is his voice. That sounds silly, but I love to hear him talk and sing. I knew he was a singer before I ever heard him talk. He sent me some videos of him singing. So, I knew he had a beautiful singing voice, but I didn't know what he sounded like when he spoke. After meeting on FarmersOnly, we texted back and forth for a couple of days. When we finally spoke on the phone, I fell in love with the sound of his voice. He has this "radio" voice. It's so clear and yet has a slight Southern draw to it. To this day, I love to listen to him talk. His voice has a calming effect on me.

Anything else?
I have a funny story about us and FarmersOnly. Last year, about a month after we got married, we decided to go buy Lee a new kayak. It was time for an upgrade. (We love kayaking). So, we paid for it and pulled our truck up front, so the sales associate could load it. The kayak was longer than the truck bed, so I climbed up and got a strap out of the toolbox while Lee proceeded to strap his new kayak down. The sales associate looked at us and said "I hope you guys don't take offense to this, but I have to say it. Y'all look like one of those couples that would be on" We did laughed. I said, "Well actually, that's exactly where we met, and we just got married less than a month ago!" He hit the nail on the head!

Congratulations on your marriage Marissa and Lee! We wish you love, and happiness, and great kayaking trips, for all the rest of your days!

Meet Bailey + Brenden = Marriage in Nebraska

Meet Bailey and Brenden, a match made in Nebraska on!


When we told people we met on, they're shocked. They're like, no, you've got to be kidding. People have seen that we were a success story, other people have tried it and other people have tried it. A few of our friends have started on now and I'm sure they'll find somebody.

They ended their first date with a trip to Walmart | Meet Dean and Angela

Here at, we love hearing y'alls so sweet love stories. Angela talked to us about her husband Dean, who she met on FarmersOnly.

Where are y'all from?
Dean and I are both from Indiana. We lived about an hour away from each other.

What did you do on your first date?
On our first date, we met at this little hole in the wall diner on a Friday night. We had dinner, laughed and talked. Afterwards, we went to a park nearby and walked and looked at the Christmas lights. Then we drove out in the country and looked at lights. We ended the night with a trip to Walmart! As he needed to buy some pants for our next date. It was perfect. Easy, laid back, and simple.

When did you know that he was the one?
I knew he was the one by talking to him and learning about how he lived life and the things he wanted out of life. We talked on the phone (like four hour long conversations!) and texted for a while before we actually met.

What is your favorite thing about him?
My favorite thing about Dean is that he is genuine. What you see is what you get. He is kind and helpful, a darn hard worker, and a family man. I have a 13 year old daughter that has fallen in love with him and he treats her as his own. No easy task for a single man with no kids. He makes me laugh every day. I couldn't be more proud to be his wife.

Congratulations on your marriage Dean and Angela. We wish you love and happiness for all your days! <3

She drove six hours to meet him for their first date | Meet Kelly and Matt

Here at, we love hearing your Success Stories. Kelly talked to us about her and Matt's "this is it" relationship.

I had been divorced for two years, and had dated a few guys I met on other dating sites. They were okay, but not earth shatteringly awesome. A good friend suggested that I step out of usual spaces and try FarmersOnly. I figured, why not? Maybe an intellectual man's man with an open heart and mind was hiding in plain site. Meanwhile, Matt had just gotten out of a painful breakup and had figured he might find a tolerably decent woman on Farmer's Only. Neither of us looked any further after less than a month on the site. We have been together for 17 months and are getting married this fall. Plus, we get a laugh whenever folks ask how we met! Thank you for making it possible for us to find each other.

What towns are y'all from?
I live in Moultrie, Georgia and Matt lives near Greenville, South Carolina

What did you do on your first date?
I drove up to South Carolina (about a six hour trip) after work so I arrived around 1:30 a.m. to meet the love of my life. We spent the weekend talking, cooking together, and tending to the cats, rabbits, dog, and goats. Our first date weekend just confirmed what both of us felt as we talked for the previous month. This was it.

When did you know that he was the one?
I knew he was the one because nothing was awkward for either of us, we even worked well in the kitchen together.

What is your favorite thing about him?
My favorite thing about him is a tie between his intellect and his compassionate heart.

Congratulations on your upcoming wedding Kelly and Matt, we wish the very best for y'all.

Meet Carl and Ellen... a whirlwind romance

Here are, we love hearing your Success Stories. Carl and Ellen's first date was in March and they got married in April.

Ellen sent us a note about their love story.

I thought Carl's black and white photo stood out, but his smile was what caught my eye. He joined February 28, we texted on March 2, and our first lunch was on March 4. We had two dates and I got scared. It hit me so hard, like never before. I told him I needed a break and cried for two days. I texted him back saying I was sorry for being scared and that if he's willing to try again, I'm ready! We've been together every day since then. He proposed April 14, and we married April 17. Yes! This year! That fast! It's like our bond is so strong, it hurts when we're apart. Our "wedding" is next April, 2018, we will renew our vows in front of our families. He lives in north Scottsdale and I'm in south Chandler. Our paths never would have crossed if it wasn't for FarmersOnly. I haven't been so happy in years.

What did you do on your first date?
We went to lunch at an Irish pub - The Thirty Lion.

When did you know when he was the one?
Halfway through our first date, I was so comfortable with him, my first thought was "I don't want him to leave, I want to snuggle in his arms..." that's when I knew.

What is your favorite thing about him?
He treats me so kind and is always checking on me, making sure I'm okay. He treats me like a princess, and I love that he loves me so much.

Meet Sydney and Nathan

Here at, we love hearing your Success Stories. Sydney and Nathan got engaged in November, 2016 and are planning for their 2018 wedding.

In September, 2015, Sydney saw Nathan's profile, liked his profile and sent him a message. A few days later, Nathan liked Sydney's profile and messaged her back. They messaged each other everyday for over a month. In October, they finally met face to face for the first date. We got the chance to catch up with Sydney and learn more about them.

What did you guys do on your first date?
I was home on fall break, and we decided to finally meet and have our first date. We met at Texas Roadhouse, talked for hours, then headed to a bowling alley for a little competition. I won fair and square but Nathan would said he let me win. The whole time I wanted Nathan to kiss me goodnight. I settled for him asking me on a second date.

The second date, I drove to Rankin, Illinois to meet Nathan at work. At the time he was working for a farmer. I climbed up in the tractor and sat with Nathan as he worked. I had a chance to learn to drive the tractor! The second date did end with a kiss.

When did y'all move in together?
Nathan was living in Illinois with his lease on his apartment ending before the New Year. He decided to move closer to me. He packed up his belongings, rented an apartment in Wisconsin and was ten minutes away from my school apartment. I found myself living at Nathan's apartment instead of mine. In May of 2016, we finally moved in together.

How did Nathan propose? 
A few weeks before our 1 year anniversary, I asked Nathan what he wanted to do for the anniversary, his response is "I am busy, I am meeting your parents for lunch, you are not allowed to come with." I knew that something was up when he told me I couldn't have lunch with my parents. A week later Nathan asked me what I was doing over the next weekend. I didn't have any plans, so he told me he wanted to go to Illinois for the weekend.

We drove to Illinois and stayed at my parent's house. The morning of our engagement, I was determined to go get a new phone. I was at Best Buy when they opened and got myself a new phone. When I got back home, Nathan was dressed in a blue button down dress shirt and told me to get in the truck, because we had places to go. Nathan drove me to Perry Farm, where we met up with Dawn and Craig (Nathan's parents) who were in town from Texas. We all start walking down the trail. I noticed Nathan was walking behind me instead of next to me like he always does. I always walk fast, so I was five feet in front of him. I heard Nathan call my name, and I turned around and he is down on one knee. He asked me to be his wife, and of course I said YES.

What's next?
Our wedding is planned for June 9, 2018!

Meet Cindy + Fritz

Cindy and Fritz met on in April 2016 and got married in February 2017.

"My husband and I met on He contacted me, I looked at his photo and really liked what I saw. People ask me, what made you go on I flat out tell them, I was looking for a real guy, I was tired of all the other ones that were out there, and I found him on"

He risked it and brought 12 long neck Coors Lite bottles, instead of a dozen roses...

Here at, we love hearing your Success Stories. Heather sent us the sweetest "long neck bottles instead of roses" love story... and these two just got engaged this past November!

It's a North meets South love story! I met Jason on FarmersOnly in 2015. I liked his picture first, but he took the first step and sent the first message. It didn't take long for Jason and I to be ready to meet for the first time. My momma always told me that the way to a man's heart is through his stomach, so of course I invited him down for dinner. He lived in New Jersey and I lived in Maryland. Everyone always said "when you know, you'll know..." and I just knew with Jason. He makes me a better person and at the same time, I know it's okay to just be myself with him. He completely surprised me in November by asking me to marry him!! We are so happy to plan our Tennessee wedding (in Jonesborough, since that's close to halfway between our families. Well, I'm excited and happy to plan it, and Jason... well, he just wants me to be happy, so he's going along with everything I ask! Thank you FarmersOnly. You brought me hope and love and you brought me my Jason. I can't ever tell you how much I appreciate the help in finding my heart.

What towns are y'all from in Maryland and New Jersey?
Jason was from New Egypt, NJ and I am from Galena, MD, which is where we both live now, along with Jason's three labs.

What did you do on your first date?
On our first date, I had Jason come down to my house and I cooked support for him! I was a little nervous and I just kept cooking more and more food. When he got to the house he walked in with a dozen Coors Lite (instead of a dozen roses), walked up and gave me a quick kiss, and stole my heart right then and there. It still makes me laugh to tell the story.

When did you know that he was the one?
Our first Christmas together. I was visiting Jason in New Jersey and, as always, I was cold and asked him to build me a fire. He was so eager to please me that he built the hottest and biggest fire ever! It was so hot in the house that we opened all the windows and turned the fans on. And Jason, who stays warm all the time, is sitting there sweating and just melting. And it was right then that I knew he was the one for me. My heart melted... as he was melting!

What is your favorite thing about him?
My favorite thing about Jason is that he can make me laugh. He tries so hard to make me happy and keep me smiling every day. We can laugh together and support each other and he really is the love I've waited my whole life for.

He had never dated anyone without kids, but he gave her a chance...

Here at, we love hearing your Success Stories. Christina sent us the best love story, just a few weeks after their one year anniversary in February. 

After having tried a couple online dating sites, I was dumbfounded at how I was treated. Men were rude, they would "yell" at me over the site if I didn't respond, they would call me horrible names, etc. Needless to say, I was done with dating for a while. One Friday night in late November 2014 I was at home watching TV and one of your commercials came on. I don't know why but I felt drawn to sign up right then and there. I signed up for a month to try it out. I talked to some nice people but no one I ever met up with. About 2 weeks in, Dustin contacted me and we hit it off! I was finally starting to feel some encouragement! I have no children but he has 3. Dustin never dated anyone without kids but for some reason, he wanted to give me a chance. I am so glad he did! We accent each other. My strengths are his weaknesses and vice versa. He is the most amazing man I have ever known. We are certainly soulmates. We don't know how we made it this far without each other. We were married on February 25, 2016 and we just celebrated our first anniversary! We are excited to see what the future holds. You don't find love like this very often. Thank you, Farmers Only!

What towns are y'all from?
Both of us lived in the metro Phoenix area when we met. He is originally from Philomath, Oregon and my hometown is Johnson City, Tennessee. 

What did you do on your first date?
We met at an Italian restaurant for lunch... it was very casual to minimize any "pressure". He was so adorable, showing up in his cowboy hat and boots.

When did you know that he was the one?
I knew he was special around the second week of dating. But around month four, there was no doubt that we were going to be more. I put this poor guy through the wringer... I had to make sure he could handle me. He was so eager to show me what he had to offer and that he wasn't like "every other guy" out there.

What is your favorite thing about him?
Everything! He is my soulmate. He is the most caring, kind-hearted, selfless, genuine, and thoughtful man I have ever met. I don't think I could pick just one favorite thing about him. 

Congratulations on your love Dustin and Christina! We wish you all the best in the future!

This Doctor met the man of her dreams in a little country town...

Here at, we love hearing your Success Stories. We got a great one from Alyssa a few weeks ago and we're so excited to share it with you. 

I was lucky enough to meet my now husband, on FarmersOnly. I'm far from being a farmer but came from a small country town. I know the value of Southern guys after dating so many "metro" guys! I am a doctor and ended up moving back to my small town. My best friend and I decided to each pick a dating site for one month and see how it goes. She picked and I picked, which she teased me about. The last week of my month membership, Shane messaged me. We both thought the other looked familiar but knew we had never met. Once we exchanged last names we realized I grew up with his younger brother but had never met him! He too was on his last week of his month membership. We met for a date one week later... and have been together every night since. Two years later, and a beautiful wedding, I am the proud wife of my handsome Southern man!! I have never been happier and thought for sure my man was not in this little country town! Boy was I wrong! Thank you FarmersOnly!

What towns/states are y'all from?
We are both from Dade City, Florida. 

What did you do on your first date?
Our first date he took me to a lovely quiet restaurant so we could talk and really get to know one another. He brought me the biggest bouquet of flowers, and we sat and talked for hours, like no one else existed in the restaurant. 

When did you know that he was the one?
About a week into seeing one another everyday and talking on the phone when we weren't together, we both told the other that this may sound insane, it may be 6-7 days after meeting, and I hope this doesn't scare you; BUT you and I are meant for one another! Lol. Thank God we both felt the exact same way so soon. 

What is your favorite thing about him?
Goodness, it is so hard to pick just ONE thing I love about Shane. I guess I would say that one of the main things I love about him is that I now have a feeling of absolute joy and fullness that I've never felt before. His love for me, and how he shows it everyday is an absolute blessing for my heart and my soul. 

Congratulations on your love Alyssa and Shane! We wish you all the best in the future!

She joined and his first email changed her life!

Here at, we love hearing your Success Stories. We got a great one from Penny a few weeks ago and we're so excited to share it with you. Here's Penny and Steven's story, in Penny's words:

I met someone very special on Farmers Only. In fact I had used other sites for over 3 years; and none of them come close to the options your site has. After all these years and struggles I found the man of a lifetime. This is a fairytale come true. Please accept my gratitude for your site and I hope others out there can find what you have brought into my life.

Steven and I talked for two weeks before we met. On our first date, Steven flew from his home in Georgia to my home in Ohio, to meet me for the first time. It was Christmas night. We stayed up all night talking. The next day I showed him all around Ohio and Lake Erie. We cherished every minute of that trip and not a second of it was dull.

My favorite thing about Steven is that he is a genuinely good person. There is nothing fake about him! I knew he was the one from the very first message that he sent me. We are so much alike and are going strong and planning a life together.

Congratulations on your love Penny and Seven! We wish you all the best in the future!

Ashley and Steve met on in 2009, and they're getting hitched in October!

Steve (New Richmond, Wisconsin) and Ashley (Lake City, Minnesota) met January 1st, 2009 through 

Ashley sent us the sweetest note about how her and Steve started talking and how their relationship progressed -  He sent me a message on  He didn't have much for a profile and no pictures.  We talked for two weeks on the site and then we exchanged emails and talked for another two weeks. Finally, after a month of talking online, we exchanged phone numbers.... we talked and texted a lot. We lived about an hour and 10 minutes from each other. He lives on his family dairy farm. I was living on my mom and step dad's hog and crop farm. 

February 12th, 2009 he showed up at my work, I worked at a convenience store at the time. Mind you I did not know what he looked like and we have been talking for a month and half at this point. You know your customers and regulars very well. I looked up as I was doing inventory counts and I knew it was him. Nervous as one can be to meet this guy. I was in the middle of counts and my shift was almost done...  I was doing my best to keep count and talk to him.  He said "well, now that you know what I look like would like to go out with me on Valentine's Day?" I said "yes, I would love to go out with you".  He got me 24 long stem white and pink roses.  

I was so nervous being with him and giving him my all. I had been single a year from a very damaging relationship. Took me a few dates, weeks and months to begin go trust him and see the love he had for me.  

First date February 14th, 2009
We moved to the family farm March of 2011
We got engaged November 18th, 2016
Will be getting married October 21st, 2017

What did you do on your first date?
We had a simple first date.  We ate at Perkins in Red Wing, MN and many more after that.

When did you know that he was the one?
I fell in love with from the inside out.  We were together about a month.  I lost my uncle unexpectedly.  He drove an hour and 10 mom south after milking cows and doing his chores to hug me and say I am sorry for you losing your uncle and I love you so much hun.  It was the first time he had said I love you and I knew he meant it.  I could see it in his eyes that he loved me.

What is your favorite thing about him?
I love his soul, his love for animals, his corky grin, his love for his family, his love for me, his love for the family, his farm, I could go on.  I love how he looks at me and I can see he loves me through and through.  I wouldn't trade it for the world. 

Congratulations on your love Ashley and Steve! We wish you all the best in the future!
