“Our users are nice, normal people with similar interests,” says Lucy. ” The site is designed to cope with painfully slow broadband speeds found in some rural areas and the fact that a proportion of members are still using dial-up internet connections, but it is also now fully responsive, as 50 per cent of Muddy Matches traffic is via mobile phone and tablets.
“There are farmers – we also host Farmers Weekly magazine’s dating site – horsey people, shooting types and dog lovers as well as a large number of country-minded folk who live in towns.” A tongue-in-cheek multiple-choice quiz on the site calculates a user’s muddy-townie ratio with questions such as “Where would your ideal house be? “People use it when they’re out at work or on their combine harvester; messages have got shorter; people are 'chatting’ rather than emailing; it’s all much more immediate,” Lucy says.
Our goal is to provide the best, securest and the most effective, non-threatening, sleaze-free support and advice forum for farmers dating. Having trouble finding a real and safe place to enjoy farmers dating?
Well, you've certainly come to the right place.

Her townie friends find it hilarious but the 24-year-old, who is a special funds coordinator at St George’s Hospital, in south London, with a passion for interior design, believes the internet is her only hope of finding love.
Internet dating has moved on since the early Noughties, when singles exchanged lengthy emails before arranging to meet in person.
