Back in April we launched a competition to replace some of our How Muddy Are You? quiz questions with ones suggested by our members. We had lots of brilliant entries and strangely enough more than one person suggested our favourites so we’ve had to award more prizes than we first planned to.
First prize winner
The first prize winner is Emma, who has won a year’s free subscription to Muddy Matches for her roadkill question. A special prize of 1 month also goes to Paul, who suggested a similar question.
If we’re honest, we did call the authorities to check that it is legal to eat roadkill and if the commonly held belief that “if the person in front of you hit it, you can eat it” is true. The police informed us that you are not breaking the law by removing a dead rabbit from the road, but “you must be wary of your own safety”. If you hit a pet or a deer you must report it to the police!
So, back to the point, Emma’s winning question is as follows…
You accidentally run over a rabbit in your car. Do you:
- Check that it’s dead.
- Have it for dinner.
- Phone the vet.
- Drive on in tears. › Continue reading
Love is definitely in the air this spring! We absolutely love reading about happy couples who have met on Muddy Matches, so we’ve been thrilled to receive so many great success stories and couldn’t wait to share them with you.
One of our recent favourites came from Beccy, who found love with a muddy match who lived on the opposite side of the country. Click to see a lovely photo of the happy couple, which makes you feel a little warm and fuzzy inside.
In contrast to Beccy’s long-distance romance, is Tanya’s success story of finding love close to home. Tanya who lived just 12 miles from her husband, had never met him before they messaged each other on Muddy Matches and found out that they even shared some of the same friends.
Then there is Robert, who shows that it’s worth putting in the effort to find your Mrs Right and Natasha who loves telling people that she met the love of her life online.
Meg not only found her met her lovely fiancée on the site, but also knows of 10 friends who met their other half on the site! Sarah also proved that Muddy Matches is also a great website to find country-minded friends if you move to a new area . However, one of her new found friends also turned out to be the love of her life.
If you’ve met the love of your life on Muddy Matches or even made some great friends through the site, get in touch with us to let us know.
Professor Monica Whitty and Dr Sue Jamison-Powell at the University of Leicester are carrying out a study into identity. They are looking for people who are using online dating sites to take part in the survey.
Dr Sue Jamison-Powell said:
“If you are currently using a dating site you are invited to take part in our study which examines identity across offline and online spaces. The study involves you completing personality questionnaires and answering questions about online dating. The survey should take approximately 15 minutes to complete. You will have the opportunity to be entered into a draw to win a £300 Amazon voucher.”

“The show is all about confidence within dating and how to become a better, more well-rounded dater. This is a new and exciting opportunity which we hope is going to be a fantastic and liberating experience for all involved. We will be working with experts and giving guys the opportunity to step out of their comfort zone in order to achieve their goals in relationships and other aspects of their lives. We are specifically looking for guys who have all consuming jobs and perhaps don’t have the best work/life balance. And we were really hoping to feature a farmer in the programme.”
