Shooting Times sub-editor Abigail (also known as Mrs Shotgun Chef) got in touch to tell us about how she met her husband Will (The Shotgun Chef) on Muddy Matches.
“My profile had only been up three hours when he sent me an email. Will is massively dyslexic, so his message was littered with typos (for example, he told me about how he catered for privet parties, and I had visions of a lot of hedges standing around munching on canapés). As a journalist, this would usually have bothered me, but the fact that he seemed so warm and honest, funny and approachable in that first message piqued my interest. He drove back from Scotland the next week and took me for the most wildly romantic sunset picnic, and within five days we were engaged. He proposed over a meal he’d cooked of potted partridge and pigeon breast in honey and apple balsamic jus, and on the strength of that meal, I said yes.”
“I’ve met a fabulous, sexy beautiful woman on Muddy Matches. She is the Love of my life and after dating for a year and a half we are getting married in August of this year. Louisa and myself would like to thank everyone at Muddy Matches for making it possible to find true love.” Chris

“My husband and I met on Muddy Matches in August 2012. We chatted for quite a while through your messaging. Eventually, he persuaded me to chat on the phone and email directly, which I managed although I was horribly nervous. We finally met in mid-September, already knowing so much about each other and yet nothing at the same time as we’d never actually met. We had a wonderful first muddy date – fabulous gastro pub lunch and 4hr dog walk. And we’ve never looked back! We moved in together 6 months later and got married in October 2013. We’ve bought a new house in the countryside and are busy being extremely happy! Thank you so much to you for helping us to find each other. Xx” Rebecca

“I met the most wonderful woman in the world on Muddy Matches. In April 2014, she will become my wife. Thank you.” Matthew
“I just wanted to say a big Thank You to you all at Muddy Matches because my boyfriend and I just got engaged, having met through Muddy Matches in May 2011! I was the first to message him and after a few messages back and forth over a couple of weeks we met up for dinner and the rest, as they say, is history. My daughter and I now live with him in Gloucestershire having moved from Dorset and we are planning our wedding for April 2015.
There is no way we would have met without Muddy Matches and he is definitely ‘the one’, so thank you very much for helping to make as both so happy!” Alice
