As the pandemic keeps singles at home, interest in dating farmers peaks to all-time highs on FarmersD — and not just in the states most would expect.
HOUSTON, Sept. 2, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — The world may be in various states of lockdown, but that has not hindered the search for love among singles during the pandemic. FarmersD, the dating app geared specifically for single country guys and gals, has also seen usage increase by close to 25% since March.
Match Group, which owns Tinder, Hinge, and Match saw a 15% increase in new subscribers during Q2 2020, the months where Covid-19 levels saw stay-at-home orders enacted all over the world, halting most social activity.
The following are the top 10 states where new FarmersD subscribers are located.

- North Carolina
- New York
"Texas is far and away the number one state to date farmers, which makes sense as it is an agriculture state with cowboys and cowgirls," explains FarmersD spokesperson, Jasmine Young. "Surprisingly, we found that states like California and New York, states that are home to some of the biggest cities in the United States, have a large user base there. That’s been increasingly true over the last few months of the pandemic."
On why these traditionally non-rural hubs for single farmers might be seeing such increases, Young says, "It means FarmersD users are not exclusively farmers, but also users who are interested in the country lifestyle, or at least connecting with people who are."
The following are the top 10 states ranked by total messages sent by users.

"For California to rank second in new users and in messages sent is pretty telling. Since people are not able to meet up in-person like they’re used to, they’re taking to online dating to fill the gap. A state like California, which is the most populous state in the country, makes sense that users are finding FarmersD a source of connection since they’re in lockdown just like everywhere else."
When asked if FarmersD has had any issue with users using the app to try and persuade others to violate social distancing, Young said that type of user behavior has not happened.
"Thankfully, our users have been very compliant with maintaining social distancing and have kept interactions online as much as possible. Farmers are the backbone of this country and always work hard. Our users know that their job right now is to stay safe and do what they can to help stop the spread of the Coronavirus."
FarmersD encourages all users to continue to practice social distancing, and invites any country singles and those interested in meeting country singles, to join the app today.
FarmersD is available now on iOS and in the Google Play Store.
FarmersD connects country singles and farmers looking for love.
