Dating sites for French farmers

If a dating site specializing in French farmers sounds specialized to you, consider the special problems of farmers: they are unusually immobile, as their work is typically tied to a specific plot of land, and they don't meet many potential marriage partners in the course of a typical work day.  So their problem combines those that have given rise to other kinds of specialized dating sites that make a thick market for e.g. particular ethnic groups or people with disabilities, as well as location and career choice.

The NY Times has a nice article by MAÏA de la BAUME covering several such sites: With Help Online, French Farmers Now Playing the Field

"The lack of love in the countryside is a serious topic for a country that sees its bedrock in small farmers and their produce, which is supposed to be uniquely of the place where it is grown. According to the Agriculture Ministry, about 30 percent of male French farmers did not have a partner in 2009."

yes,this is a real market, and there is even a tv reality show "l'amour a la campagne" (love at countryside) and some eastern european countries dating agencies, that match couple on a trade off principle (live in western europe, but in remote area).
There is also another dating website equilove to make people loving horses meet

Online dating is a great way to built relationship to another people because some time shy people not explain their emotions and here they easily contact to another people and some time they choose a partner for him.

My personal favorite is Mavenrestin.com. It's not full of fake profiles like the other big sites.
