I wouldn’t consider myself a country girl, but I’d say I have a few traits. Pretty much my whole family is from Georgia. I’ve listened to legends like Conway Twitty and George Strait since I was a kid. I grew up playing on my friends’ farms. My high school’s magnet program was agriculture. My favorite food is Southern cooking, and I’ve only been to two weddings out of a dozen or so where the bride, groom, wedding party, and a majority of the attendees didn’t wear boots.
It’s a way of life that some can’t relate to and never will, which can make looking for love difficult. Whether you’re a farmer, rancher, gardener, or an admirer, you can turn to the 12 best country dating websites we’ve selected below. They’re pretty easy on the wallet as well!
MuddyMatches is a UK country dating site with more than 130,000 users and growing. If you love hard work and the peace and quiet of the countryside, then you’ll fit right in on this site. Jackie, who met her husband Ian on Muddy Matches, said, “I have a smallholding, and it’s a tough life if you don’t like mud and dirt! We now own and breed Friesian horses together. The horse and carriage are our own, and Ian drove me to our wedding in it!”
In a relationship, having a similar lifestyle and beliefs comes in handy, especially if you’re a country single, and WesternMatch does a wonderful job of catering to this audience. The site also works seamlessly on any device, so you can date anywhere and at any time. One of several raving reviews the site has gotten was written by Mark, who met Christy on WesternMatch: “Please delete my profile as I have found the love of my life! Thank you for your service! Christy and I are on our way and wedding bells will be ringing in the near future!”
We’ve all seen the funny commercials and know the catchy slogans (“city folks just don’t get it”) — yep, it’s FarmersOnly. Founded in 2005, this was one of the first dating sites made specifically for singles who live or love the country lifestyle. The signup process on FarmersOnly, which is free, is as straightforward as its members — just provide your email address, zip code, gender, the gender you’re looking for, and age. Then get to browsing!
Some people may think redneck is a derogatory term, but not the men and women on RedneckMeet. They fully embrace it and take it as a compliment! On the site, you’ll find a lot of the traditional features, like quick and advanced search options, but also unique ones like public polls (e.g., “Which one? Chevy or Ford?”). RedneckMeet is 100% free, but the team will accept donations if you want to contribute to their pizza, beer, and Netflix cause!
SinglesCorral is on a mission to bring as many country men and women together in one place as it can — so people like you don’t have to look anywhere else. And with thousands of members, you’ll “rope in some love” in no time. Plus, it doesn’t cost anything to do things such as register, search for and receive match suggestions, and take part in the site’s active forums.
CowboyCowgirl is “where country meets country,” and the site has three steps to success, all of which are free: 1) Register. 2) Create a profile. 3) Meet people. CowboyCowgirl has affordability on its side, but it’s also got history, having launched in 1999. No matter if you’ve got friendship, dating, or relationships on your mind, this dating site for country people can help you.
If your lifestyle and religious beliefs are equally important to you, there’s ChristianCountrySingles. Since this free online country dating site is part of the G-Rated Network, if you create a profile, it’ll show up on all six of its sister sites. The information you can share about yourself includes your basics, like your appearance, occupation, and hobbies, but also more in-depth identifiers like how country you consider yourself to be.
Farmers often work long hours in rural areas, which makes it hard to meet people, especially that special someone. But with the FarmersMatch app on your phone, that problem quickly fades away. Download it for free via the App Store or Google Play, and then you can start swiping through compatible country singles (right if you’re interested and left if you’re not). FarmersMatch will also keep you updated about every connection by sending you daily notifications — making it less work on your end!
The self-described “#1 cowboy dating community on the net,” DateACowboy is perfect for single ladies who like their men somewhat rough around the edges. You’ll see new members on the homepage and be featured there yourself when you join. It’s absolutely free to do so as well as to fill out your information, add photos, search for and receive matches, and send virtual flirts.
If starting off a date or relationship with friendship is something you value, we suggest turning to CountryFriendsDate. This free dating site for country singles has your back no matter what your goal is. In addition to providing you with all the necessary tools, such as browsing and messaging, CountryFriendsDate also gives you the ability to see who’s online, so you can start chatting right then and there.
We get a lot of readers asking us about very niche dating sites. For Australian men and women living in small towns and other remote areas of the country, there’s OZCountrySingles. You won’t have to pay anything to sign up for a membership, search through profiles, or send virtual smiles. The site also regularly posts about country events, so once you meet someone you like, get to know them offline in a fun atmosphere.
CountryPassions is a little bit dating site and a little bit social media network, and that’s what single country folks love about it. When you’re not browsing profiles for “The One,” check out the site’s many groups and forums — where topics go beyond dating to include hobbies, current events, and sports. CountryPassions is one of 260 sites owned and operated by Passions Network, so your profile will appear on all of them — which could be a good thing if you’re looking to take a break from your type.
I may not be a true country gal, but I understand those who are. I’ve got countless friends and family members who love them some Luke Bryan, have sweet tea running through their veins, raise cows, horses, pigs, goats, and you name it, and who would die without their truck. And for the ones who are single, I’d recommend any of these country dating websites to them — just like I’m doing for y’all. Good luck!
