We’ve calculated the results and here they are:

New romance

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.

Puppy love

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.

Get cooking

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.
