There are a number of different distinctive qualities that set us Iowa men apart, and according to a website, you can narrow it down to at least 11 that all women have dated at least once. Here are just a few:


  • 1

    The Iowa or Iowa State Fan

    There are two very different, but dedicated, groups in Iowa when it comes to sports. You're either a Hawkeye or a Cyclone and women have probably dated one or both at some point... especially since they are just as devoted to their teams! I'm not sure why Northern Iowa Panthers or Drake Bulldog fans didn't make the list but they are sure to get plenty of love too.

    The Farmer

    It's not hard to find, meet, and date a farm boy in Iowa. They're everywhere. It's kind of our thing. Women apparently love them and rightfully so. Of course, one particular Iowa "Bachelor" farmer seems to be getting a bit more attention than others recently.

    The Wrestler

    We're not just devoted fans of our college sports teams, many Iowa guys work hard to become part of the team. Wrestling is probably the biggest and most popular, so there are lots of guys here in Iowa to choose from if that's what you're looking for.

    The Handyman

    I'm not one of them, but Iowa guys are usually good at fixing and building things, and it makes them a desirable catch.

    The Political Junkie

    This is a yawner for a lot of people, but we take politics very seriously in Iowa, being the first in the nation for presidential primaries. So if you're interested in politics, there is no shortage of men who share that interest to match up with. This also happens to be the item on the list I fit most closely with, so if you're still looking to check this type of man off your list, I'm available!
