Mark ended up meeting his current girlfriend at a wedding when she interrupted him trying to tackle a cold and very tough beef sandwich.

"It turned out I'd bought a tractor from her father the year before as he was the local sales rep for a machinery dealer," says Mark.

He felt obliged to be nice, so he stuck it out for two and a half hours.Most of her Tinder matches happened when she made her way back into the city to work or see friends.She's now living with her current boyfriend, who she met in a bar and "bewitched" into moving to her area.Mark says famers' lifestyles are also a major obstacle when it comes to arranging dates.Even the weather can put a last minute damper on social plans.It seems if you're a farmer looking for a Tinder date, you'll need to be willing to go the distance ...literally.
