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.

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.
