It seems to be a national problem. And nowhere is it more apparent than in big Australian cities such as Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. In these urban areas young single women outnumber available men to a significant degree.
An enterprising woman called Brie Peterson has seen the potential that such a demographic imbalance creates and has begun sending groups of urban women on rural tours in which they meet the local blokes. As this article describes:
The weekend tours, named Thank Goodness He's A Country Boy, involve eight hours of intensive speed dating at a country pub, where lonely farmers are introduced to single city girls.
More information about how the tours are run can be found at the business's website.
