However we thought that it is a good idea to encourage people to use the different search options on the Muddy Matches ‘advanced search’ function.

Basic search

The first search that most people carry out on any dating sites comprises of the following criteria: ‘gender’, ‘age’ and ‘location’. This is a good place to start, however do you really want your reason for dating someone to be that they live in the same area and are a similar age to you?

As a niche countryside dating website, it will come as no surprise that many of our members enjoy taking part in countryside sports and a whole range of other sports and activities.

If your potential partner’s religion is important, you can search by ‘background’ to find people who share the same religion as you do.

Make sure that you appear in people’s searches by going to ‘my profile’ and ticking all the boxes that apply to you.
