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.“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.“Rural internet dating sites were all very much Last Chance Saloon; images of two badgers disappearing off into the sunset — that kind of thing,” Lucy explains.Determined to settle down with a rural type, Lindsay Lyon, who works in London and lives in Buckinghamshire, has joined rural dating site Muddy Matches.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.With their online dating plans thwarted, they resolved to set up their own site, launching Muddy Matches – users can’t be afraid of mud – with about 800 profiles a few months later, having bribed every single they came across to join the site.

Lindsay tried networking the traditional country way – attending rural events such as the Sheep Dog Trials at Northleach in Gloucestershire, but she struggled to persuade her London friends to accompany her, and when she did, the group never met anyone new.Lindsay, whose muddy-townie ratio is , says her ideal match is blond, blue-eyed, business-minded and really funny.“Hopefully he’ll do sport – cricket or shooting – but most importantly he has to love animals,” she says.But Lindsay felt a fraud signing up as she works in a city and doesn’t come from a farming background.“It’s hard to find the right group that leads to meeting new people,” she says.

But Lindsay felt a fraud signing up as she works in a city and doesn’t come from a farming background.

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