It seems if you're a farmer looking for a Tinder date, you'll need to be willing to go the distance ...literally.

For 26-year-old Hannah Blackmer — a farmer in central Vermont — distance has been a major problem in her Tinder game. I live in a very rural area which makes it pretty difficult to meet people, let alone young or single or suitable," she says.

First-generation farmer Nicole Caldwell moved from New York City to "the middle of nowhere" when she inherited her uncle's property in upstate New York.

She says moving from NYC to a place where families have been established for more than 100 years made for an unusual dating experience, often one that left her feeling like she was occupying a space between two worlds — "too city for the country, too country for the city".

He's not the only one who's experienced challenges when it comes to finding love and farming.

22-year-old Eli Hey — a 6th generation beef farmer from West Yorkshire, UK — finds Tinder dates really difficult because farming isn't "a 9-5 job".

One where dates get cancelled when animals go into labour, and where some people show up to their dates brandishing shotguns. But, finding a likeminded person in the local area who he didn't already know proved challenging.

He tried out a dating site called Muddy uk which — as the name suggests — is for country-dwelling singles looking for love. He was exhausted after a long week and had managed to get some metal in his eye that day, so he was weeping and yawning throughout the date.

He says it's especially trying in the summer when there's silage and hay to be made.

"I've had to cancel a date about an hour before once 'cause I needed a vet to come out to calve a cow.

She tried out Farmers — a dating site for famers — but found no one that seemed like an appropriate fit for her.

"To find someone on Tinder who you don't already know up here, you have to change your match settings to a 50-mile radius, at least," says Nicole.
