CHICAGO TRIBUNE -- Jan 2 -- FarmersOnly.com, an online dating service that plays matchmaker for farmers with the credo, "City folks just don't get it." FarmersOnly has more than 80,000 members and takes credit for hundreds of relationships and at least 40 marriages, said Jerry Miller, an advertising executive from Ohio who came up with the idea two years ago.

Mark Brooks: I was quoted in NY Times today saying JDate is the best example of a super successful niche dating site. FarmersOnly.com is another favorite. It's an amusing example of just how far niche dating is reaching, along with DateMyPet.com. The 'sugar daddy' sites such as SugarDaddyForMe.com and MllionaireMate.com and WealthyMen.com are also amusing examples. (Full Disclosure: I was Senior Marketing Manager at FriendFinder in 2003. WealthyMen.com is a client of Courtland Brooks).
