How do we Match People?

Sunday, July 23rd, 2017

We are often asked how we match mud loving singles with one another, and we say that we do not match people as we run an online country-life dating website rather than an old fashioned matchmaking website.

How does matchmaking work?

Matchmaking is a more traditional type of dating, whereby people are introduced by a matchmaker after a length process. This is usually done by filling in a form and providing a photo of yourself to be used by the matchmaker. They will then interview you to find out more about you and what you are looking for and some may choose to record a video of you speaking about yourself.

When you have completed the process, the matchmaker will get in contact with you to show you potential matches that you might be interested in.

Matchmaking is expensive as you are paying for a one-to-one service and prices range from a few thousand pounds up to tens of thousands of pounds.

How to find your match on an online dating website

Online dating websites do not match up their members directly, although you might get suggestions based on age, gender and location preferences.

When you join an online dating website, you should write an introduction (your profile text) that explains who you are and what qualities you are looking for in a potential partner. To help yourself to stand out, try to avoid cliche vagaries like ‘I like going out and staying in’ and use more detailed examples, for example mentioning your favourite types of restaurant, your favourite drink, or a great play that you have seen recently.

You should also add a flattering Main Photo that clearly shows your face, as well as a selection of additional photos; including a full length photograph and one that shows you enjoying one of your hobbies, or interests.

In terms of searching, you can save a search so that people who meet your criteria will be easy to find. However, it is also a good idea to search outside of your set criteria every now and again to ensure that you don’t miss out of someone because they are 10 miles outside of your normal radius.
