Cattle, Race Cars, and Fishing...

Matt and I started messaging back and forth on Farmers Only in October 2012. After 5 months of talking and Skyping he drove to Indiana so we could meet for the first time. After doing the long distance relationship of Oklahoma to Indiana for 3 years we were married June 27, 2015. We have been happily married ever since. Thanks toFarmersOnlyI found my perfect match. - Greta.What towns/states are y'all from?I am from Paoli, Indiana. He is from Newkirk, Oklahoma.

What did you do on your first date?I was in college and the University of Indianapolis for Matt's first trip to visit. On our first date we went to Texas Roadhouse for dinner then went to a bar for drinks. He told me then that if I ever wanted to marry him I was going to have to learn how to 2 step. So that night, on the dance floor, I learned how to 2 step. Of course at the time he had no idea that wouldn't actually matter.

When did you know that they were the one?There wasn't just one moment for either of us when we knew. It was a lot of different moments that meshed into the moment of "I'm going to marry that guy." We enjoy a lot of the same things so a lot of those times played a role in us realizing the other person was our one. Matt has been drag racing for some time and it's something I enjoy doing with him, whether it's working in the shop on trucks and the car or traveling to a race. Fishing is also something that helped forge our love. Doing those little things together are our time without ranch work or cattle to interfere.

What is your favorite thing about them?Greta: There are a lot of things I love about Matt but the best part is that he allows me to be independent while always being there if I need him. Even though he lets me be independent he will stand up to me and be my reality check when I need it.

Matt: I guess one of my favorite things about Greta is her interest and enjoyment of racing. She's at almost every track night or race and is always there to support me good or bad.  She's always there to help with cattle or whatever else is going on.
