A dating site for farmers, because city folks just don’t get it

  • Farmers need love too. Just ask anyone on the online dating site called FarmersOnly.com.

    A commercial for the online service—along with it’s clever tagline, because city folks just don’t get it—aired during the first game of the Western Conference Finals between the Oklahoma City Thunder and the San Antonio Spurs on Sunday night on TNT.

  • According to the website, there’s two groups of people in America. “Group one revolves around four dollar cups of coffee, taxi cabs, blue suits, and getting ahead at all costs in the corporate world,” a description on the website reads, referring to what we can only assume is city folk. This site caters to group two, those whom enjoy, “blue skies, living free and at peace in wide open spaces, raising animals, and appreciating nature.”

    Instead of of connecting users through a common astrological sign, FarmersOnly.com connects people raising similar livestock, including alpacas, chickens, horses, goats and sheep, and welcomes farmers both organic and traditional.

    Here’s a commercial uploaded by the service on YouTube on Feb. 7, 2007, similar to the one aired on Sunday night.

  • Oh and in case you were wondering, the Spurs won 101-98.
