|If you want to find country boys or men that work the land, I would suggest you relocate to Alberta, or Rural Ontario. I have family in both provinces and I was amazed at the number of cowboys and ranchers. |
I'm a city girl, I love the look of a man in a nice suit and someone to talk to about business, economics, world issues, or current events. Talking about farm work, crops, livestock and watching a man spit out a mouthful of snuff just does not do it for me. In Alberta or Rural Ontario, it was hard to find men who interested me.

|Msg 3 - not stereotyping - stating a personal preference. I did not say that farmers or ranchers cannot or did not talk about important stuff. However many farmers/ranchers are not generally as passionate or interested about business and the other topics I listed, as some people who work in business and other professional sectors - there is nothing wrong with that. |
My personal preference is to have a partner who shares some of the passions I do on certain topics, as this makes for wonderful thought provoking conversations. I would never dismiss a man who was a farmer/rancher, as everyone is an individual and I have always believed that it goes to reason, that if one person expects to be given a chance or an opportunity, it must be reciprocal. I am not really to passionate about some of the issues farmers/ranchers are interested in - and that too is ok, as we are all individuals. This is not to say that I would not be adverse to talk about the issues, I just dont see myself as being passionate about it. I have family members who are farmers and others who are ranchers, and I have found that regardless how hard we all try, stimulating conversation will only go so far on both sides. Does not mean we don't care or respect one another, it just means that there are others people who would make better conversationalists.

|Well,I'm a country boy,born and raised. But a warning to the ladies who grew up in the city:country life might not be what you expect. I've found that a common dream of many women who grew up a city is to live out on a farm,but for many the fantasy is unlike the reality.|
In the 1st long-term relationship my partner wanted to move out to the country to be with me,and after she did it took her about a month to discover that she hated country life,because as she put it,there was nothing to do. No malls to hang out at(she was 35 for crying out loud)no 7-11s a block or two away,no pizza delivery,etc. We broke up a few months later. My girlfriend now loves country life,but she hated when she 1st moved out here for many of the same reasons. Just remember that it is a different life from the one you have in the city.

|Hey i just wanted to reply to this. I cant 100% agree because I am actually from a small town and I have lived in both small towns and cities and I still am looking for a nice old fashioned country boy. I want to live in the country because I love animals and I do want to one day have my own rehabilitation farm for endangered species. Sure there is nothing out there but when you have friends and a vehicle if you want a good time yo throw a tail-gate party or barn party. And if u needs something its a chance to drive in your truck and go to town and as a detour go fishin. I really am a country girl and if i can find my country boy that has the same values and morals as me that would be great!|

|No offense to city boys but country boys are always more polite - that's been my experience. I was brought up where hard work was just called "work". Anything that needed to be done had to be done, period. For me now it's tough as I don't see a lot of guys who work hard physically. Country boys that I've met have no choice but to get the work done. They don't complain about it either. The "suit" that has manicured nails, a maid and drives a car you can't get comfortable in just isn't attractive to me. Guys that aren't afraid of getting dirty are where it's at...as long as they understand "shower" and put some effort into cleaning up nice when need be. For me, it's the work ethic that one has I guess. Country boys have it.|

|I completely agree with you. Not being the right brand of Barbie gets you stepped over and stepped on by city boys because they have in the back of their mind what they think look good on their arm. I prefer country boys because unlike the city slickers, they appreciate curves in a woman. I've been told that I'm gorgeous, but would I consider getting down to like a size 2. Are you serious??? Not to mention, I've always loved the country. The best place to raise a family and just have some peace and tranquility in your life.|
