Muddy boots dating agency

“It’s nerve-racking, socialising with people you don’t know,” she says.

Muddy Matches members using the app can browse photographs of people at the event whose profiles appeal, and send them texts.

“We didn’t see much point having a geography-based app because our users would find the nearest 'match’ lives 50 miles away,” Lucy says.

A country dating site that is also popular with townies.

If you like the idea of dating a hard working farmer, an equestrian, or simply someone who enjoys pulling on their wellington boots and romping about in the mud, then this might just be the right dating website for you.

This was also the experience of Lucy Reeves, from Northamptonshire, who founded Muddy Matches in 2007, aged 25, with her sister Emma, who was 27 at the time.

They’d failed to meet anyone through Young Farmers, and while they enjoyed going to rural events such as the CLA Game Fair and Badminton Horse Trials, they only ever met up with people they knew. I’d be surrounded by good-looking, like-minded people my age but I didn’t have the nerve to barge up to them and introduce myself,” Lucy says.She has already exchanged messages with a couple of “cute” guys and is looking forward to test-driving the Get Muddy app at the Country Life Fair.“It’s exciting seeing who has looked at your profile.” Lucy recommends she post a flattering and clear photograph of herself on to her profile and includes brief details such as her location and age.Fiona Eastman, who is organising the Country Life Fair at Fulham Palace, is convinced that the Get Muddy dating app will break the ice between singles at the event.“The capital’s rural contingent will be out in force, and by using the app you will be able to meet singles you don’t know and have a drink,” she says.“So we decided on an event-based app, as that’s the way people socialise in the country.” In 2006, when the Reeves sisters decided to give online dating a go – secretly, because the notion of finding love with a stranger via the internet had only recently started to lose its stigma – they failed to find a dating site aimed at young, country-minded singles.
