Category: Our Members
The clocks have gone back, the nights are drawing in and it will soon be time for fireworks, bonfires and maybe a glass or two of mulled wine.
Here are some of our lovely members, appropriately named for the title of this Photo Call. If you would like to find out more about them then click on their photo which will take you directly to their full profile.
Back in August 2009 we received a success story from a lady called Gina who had met the man of her dreams on Muddy Matches. Since then Gina has married her muddy match, Mark and has moved her business Gina Lillcrop Designs to her husband’s farm in Wigtownshire. Mark even recommended Muddy Matches to a friend who also went on to find love with a woman he met on the site. So we were delighted to read more about Gina’s successful move to the countryside.
Gina shared the story of her move to the farm with the website Dumfries and Galloway What’s Going On? and spoke about how well she has taken to becoming a farmer’s wife, including gaining a new skill (driving the Massey 6499).

With questions ranging from “How often do your wear your wellies”, through to asking how you’d find your way off a foggy moor, our muddy-townie ratio is a tongue-in-cheek way to find out just how ‘muddy’ you are and it has proved to be a popular feature of the site.
Using some computer wizardry (thanks to MM’s Steve) we’ve collated all of the results so far to find out where is the muddiest place in the UK and Ireland and just how many people are 100% muddy.
The muddiest place in the UK and Ireland
Drum roll please. Where do you think the ‘muddiest’ place in the UK and Ireland is?…
It’s Northern Ireland that takes the crown for the ‘muddiest’ place in the UK, with 10% of people taking the top score of 100% muddy and 62% overall scoring 70% or higher. The Republic of Ireland comes in a second with 7% of respondents hitting the 100% muddy mark. England ranks the lowest with just 4% getting the highest muddy rating.
However, if you live in England and are looking to find a date who is as outdoorsy as Ray Mears, then head to East Anglia, where 68% of people scored over 70% muddy.
What percentage of people are 100% muddy?
Overall, less than 1% of people are 100% muddy.
What’s the average score?
The most popular score was 70% muddy, closely followed by 60% muddy. The least popular score (unsurprisingly for a website aimed at country-minded people) was 0% muddy.
How do I find people who are as muddy as me?
On Muddy Matches, as well as the usual search terms such as age, location and gender, you can also search by people’s muddy to townie ratio. Just log in to your Muddy Matches account and click on the ‘Advanced search’ in the search box.

At Muddy Matches HQ we’re all massive animal lovers! To celebrate Sir David Attenborough’s 60 years of bringing natural history to our TV screens we thought we’d share with you some of the more exotic types of animals that some of our members have encountered on their travels!
