Muddy boots dating website
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.
As the internet plays an ever greater part in our social lives, with sites such as Facebook helping us to keep in touch with our friends, it's inevitable that we also use it to help us run our love lives as well.
Many country-loving singles aged 18-26 find love at their local branch of Young Farmers, an organisation with 25,000 members that arranges ski trips and dances for young country dwellers.
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.
