Over the last few weeks, you may have noticed a poll question appearing when you log in to Muddy Matches, with questions ranging from ‘Have you ever given a Valentine’s Day card to a pet?’, right through to ‘Would you serve a luxury ready-meal to a date?’.
We’ve calculated the results and here they are:
We were pleased to find out that 71% of members would take a new date out on Valentine’s Day and following the success of our Free Love Weekend, we’re looking forward to hearing about your Valentine’s Day dates!
Hide under the duvet/ go out with friends
For those who haven’t arranged a date for Valentine’s Day, the top answer for what to do during the evening was ‘spend time with friends’, with only 36% saying that they would hide under the duvet.
For a countryside dating site, we were surprised to read that only 14% of people who answered the poll have ever sent or received a Valentine’s Day card from a pet. Maybe it’s just us then.
If you’ve got a date for Valentine’s Day, but have forgotten to buy a present, don’t panic! Nearly 90% of Muddy Matches members would prefer to be cooked a romantic meal than receive a present.
Muddy Matches members are also a good bet for cooking a romantic meal as only 25% said that they’d serve a luxury ready-meal to a date.

What’s the deal?
From the 9th – 10th of February 2013 Muddy Matches is holding a Free Love Weekend, allowing all members with a live profile to send messages for free, in time to find a date for Valentine’s Day.
The offer is open to subscribers and non-subscribers alike and, don’t worry we don’t take any payment details from you! You simply need to have an approved and ‘visible’ profile before Friday 8th February to qualify for the Free Love Weekend.
What if I’m already a subscriber?
You may have noticed a single question popping up on the Muddy Matches homepage recently and wondered what it was all about. Over the next few weeks we will be asking a couple of questions each week and all will be revealed in good time!
Stay tuned to the Muddy Matches news page to find out the results and why we’re asking you these questions.
If you’ve got a question that you’d like to ask other members about Valentine’s Day, email us at email@example.com.
Just to wish you all a Happy Valentines Day!
You have come in your tens of thousands over the last three days to make the most of the free subscription we gave out on the 11, 12th and 13th Feb. We very much hope it has been put to good use and that you took up our Muddy Valentines Challenge to try and bag yourself a date for Valentines Day (or thereabouts). We’ve heard some great feedback so far and know that hundreds of dates have been organised.
We’d love to hear how you got on with the challenge, or how any dates went so please keep in touch! You can reach us at the usual phone/email contact details but you can also get us on Twitter or Facebook - please use #MuddyValentinesChallenge for Twitter.
Happy days – everyone can send messages for free in the run-up to Valentine's Day!
Not a word of a lie – on the 12th February we'll be giving away two days’ free subscription to any member with an approved and visible profile. And this isn't some ‘subscribe-for-6-months-and-we'll-give-you-a-few-extra-days' gimmick either. It doesn't matter whether you've subscribed before or not; if you've filled out a profile and it's live and visible on the site, you'll be able to send and receive messages for free over the weekend of the 12th and 13th February. And if you're already a subscriber – don't worry – your two days will get added to the end of your current subscription.
Well, we know times are tight and it is Valentine's Day, but more importantly we're about to turn four – Happy Birthday to us – and how better to celebrate the occasion than by spreading a little muddy love? So if you're single, why not come back onto the site, see who's new, freshen up your profile a little bit and get messaging? Take a few chances as well: if you normally search within fifty miles of your postcode, why not try a hundred? If your typical age bracket is 30-35, how about trying 27-37? You could really make someone's day if you send them a message and – you never know – if you get on the case quickly enough you might just bag yourself a date for the 14th!
What do you have to do?
- Make sure that your profile is online, up-to-date and 'visible' before Friday 11th February (it's easy to check by signing in and clicking on 'view my published profile').
- Tell all your single muddy friends that, if they haven’t joined already, they have to get online and add their profile!
Sign in now and start jazzing up those profiles!
