The term: Online dating profile

What it means: Your online dating profile is your personal space where you can show who you are and give other country singles an idea of what you are looking for. When you create your online dating profile with you’ll be able to select your own online dating pictures (check out this blog for hints and tips on how to choose a cracking photo), choose from a huge range of countryside-specific interests to give others an idea of what your hobbies and activities are, and also write your profile text. This is your chance to be creative and write a few paragraphs (we suggest about 250 words) about yourself. Your profile is something that will draw other rural singles in and entice them to contact you so be honest and really show off your best assets. We’ve got many more tips on writing a great online dating profile here. It’s up to you to make your profile unique and stand out from the crowd by adding extra photos and information about yourself and your interests. We find that the more complete profiles are the ones that get the most attention (views, winks, favourites and messages) so it’s worth taking the time to fill in the blanks with a bit more info.

The term: Wink

When you look at other country singles on you’ll see that each has a ‘Wink’ button. This is your one-click way to flirting! You can send a ‘Wink’ for free to other country people to let them know you’re interested in them. No words required! If you receive a wink and you like the look of the winter, why not wink back to let them know if you’re interested?

The term: Favourite

What it means: We know that you rural daters are super-busy and might not have lots of time to slowly browse through the profile of other online daters. Well this is where the ‘Favourite’ function can help you. When you ‘Favourite’ someone, it acts to bookmark their profile so that you can find them again quickly (in your Favourites folder) the next time you log in, without having to run a search or scroll through lots of other profiles again sO you can return later and find out more about them when you have time! When you favourite someone they’ll also be notified, so it’s a good way of letting someone know that you’re interested in them and want to know more.

The term: Online dating search

What it means: When you register with and create your online dating profile, we’ll automatically suggest other country singles based on the information you have given us. However, to search for other rural daters you’ll need to create an online dating search. This lets you delve deeper into the site and find other muddy people who are closely matched to you, based on physical appearance, background, lifestyle, interests and other characteristics. Once you’ve created your search you can narrow down the search results further by making tweaks or wholesale changes to your criteria using the ‘Refine This Search’ option. You can also save your search so that you can return to it time and again without having to select your options. Bonus!

The term: Online dating message

What it means: An online dating message is a private message between you and another online dater. They’ll be able to read your message and see who it comes from but you can rest assured that all messages you send will come from your Muddy Matches account and none of your personal details (email, phone number) will be revealed. Once you’ve built up a rapport with the person you’re messaging and wish to meet them in person, we recommend swopping phone numbers. Please note that you must be a paying subscriber to send, read and respond to messages.
