TALK AG TO HER

There are a lot of good girls in the world, but there are none better than a country girl. Whether you found her baling hay in the pasture or disguised in at a bar, country girls are the best you are going to do. Now that we have that straightened out, and thank goodness we do, let’s talk about the quickest way to keep these girls around, maybe even get them down the aisle. Talk ag to them. Country girls are farm girls through and through. There is nothing a farm girl loves more than a man who can talk the farm talk and walk the farm walk. Try these conversation points next time you are lucky enough to get close to the special country girl.

Have a favorite color tractor: If you really are a true country boy, you are going to have a favorite color tractor. If you and the special lady have the same favorite brand, it just might be true love. Healthy debate can be good for a relationship, don’t worry about a little green versus red, a country girl is worth it.

Know the difference between soil and dirt: It may seem like it’s not a big deal, but to a true farm girl, calling her inheritance “dirt” as akin to a slap in the face. Soil is the valuable material that you plant your crops in that resides in the fields. Dirt is displaced soil, or the stuff on the bottom of you show. Don’t mess it up or she won’t forgive you.

Judge: That’s right, us country girls want you to judge. Whether you were on the livestock judging team or the crop judging team, we want you to know what you are talking about. Have an appreciation for a nice looking steer and know when my corn field is looking a bit better than my neighbor’s.

Knock Boots: Yes, you read that right. No, I am not trying to be crude. We are all familiar with the phrase “knocking boots”. For that to even be able to apply to you, you have to own boots. Really, you should own work and dress boots, but don’t even consider yourself potential for a country girl without a pair of boots.

Now, you are a lot closer to getting the special country girl down the aisle. Don’t have the special lady yet? Don’t fret. Find yourself a lady using the tips above and before long you will be hearing wedding bells to. Looking to plan that special day? Check out The Hitching Post for some awesome country wedding ideas!
