It all started with a six hour phone call...

Imagine my surprise when the last day of my subscription, I see a member profile that intrigued me enough to send my number in a text. I simply said "I think we have a lot in common, here is my number, call me after you read my profile if you think the same. Our first phone call was over five hours long. Rick and I set a time to meet and didn't even make it long enough for our first date. We met two days earlier than planned and we have been inseparable since. We met in February, went on a cruise in May and got engaged. We are trying to plan a small event next year and as I look at my newly purchased wedding band, I realize that without this site, I would have never found the next stage of my life in a man that I could have built better. We both consider ourselves lucky and appreciateFarmersOnlyfor the opportunity to find love again. - Yvette

What towns are y'all from?Rick is from Madison Heights, Virginia and I live in Roanoke, Virginia, but way of Rochester, New York. I have been in Virginia for about 10 years.

What did you do on your first date?On our first date we met in Hollins, Virginia at a place called Lew's. It's a little pizza joint and we stayed until the place closed that night. I bought Rick a picture he admired of the Dr. Pepper Building in Roanoke - his first gift and he was so flattered.

When did you know that he was the one?That's a funny question. Our first phone conversation lasted almost six hours. We talked all night long, literally I knew he was the one after that phone call, and he would say the same thing.

How did he propose?We were on a cruise in the Bahamas' and in the middle of the ocean on the beach, he got down on one knee and pulled out a ring his sister helped him pick out. He asked and I immediately said yes. We met on February 21 and were engaged on May 10.

What is your favorite thing about each other?He tells me it is my caring nature. I volunteer at the mission, am involved in church, and professionally I am a nurse, so I am a caregiver. For me, it's his easy-going attitude. He is so calm at all times. He is a cattle farmer and I believe his ability to deal with farming make him appreciate life and he doesn't sweat the small stuff. I am truly blessed to have this man in my life.
