If you’re new to online dating, deciding which site to join can seem a tricky undertaking.
There are a multitude of sites to choose from - mature dating sites, professional dating sites, free dating sites - so which one is going to be right for you?
Now you’re keen to put those lectures into practice before you get too engrossed in running the farm, but you’re still looking for that “original” idea.
For Lucy and Emma Reeves, two farming sisters from Northamptonshire, their original idea came in the form of a social networking site catering for country-minded people.
I outlined my dilemma to my boss and she suggested I try online dating.
She'd met her husband through it and assured me I'd be an absolute stud online, as I'm charming and normal, as opposed to most of the men on mainstream dating sites."Online dating is great for people like you, Willard – it's like we've finally invented a pair of tight jeans for being funny, or a push-up bra for being intelligent," she said.
You’ve finished college, done some time away from the farm and gained some business experience.
Unfortunately, while I was charming, intelligent, funny and normal, that gave me no guarantee that the person I'd meet would be the same. While this was clearly one of the worst dates ever, it wasn't the worst I've ever been on, or ever heard of.
I love the symmetry and order of a classic Georgian house.
This house still speaks to me…the windows, chimneys, palladian windows – all elements that I find to be quite beautiful. Working on a home from scratch, somehow I knew that I wanted to go more French in style.
Perhaps more accurately, a home that combines some aspects of the Georgian that I love, but which is inspired by French architecture but does not slavishly emulate it.
