I met my perfect match online whilst country-life dating

Wednesday, December 15th, 2021

A mud-loving mum of three has heaped praise on her perfect Muddy Matches experience after unearthing her ‘dream match’ whilst country life dating.

Equine vet Julia, 38 from Shropshire, met 70% muddy, shooting fan Simon online in 2017, immediately bonding over a shared passion for outdoor adventure and their joint love of country pursuits.

2 years on, and the rural romance, which started out as a mutual match whilst online dating at Muddy Matches, bloomed into a muddy wedding.

“Simon was my dream match. He ticked every one of my boxes then, and he still does today,” Julia tells us. “He is a wonderful husband.”

“Simon doesn’t have a particularly muddy job so it is fair to say our paths would never have crossed if it wasn’t for the fab Muddy Matches website. Our lives are quite crazy so we would absolutely never have met in the real world.”

Just like over ¾ million mud loving singletons who have stepped over our welcome mat in the past 15 years, Julia dipped her toe into online dating with Muddy Matches in the hope of finding a needle in a haystack; someone who shared her love of clay pigeon shooting and making the most of every moment outside in the fresh air.

A fondness of gundogs, and all the unconditional love, and life chaos, they can bring, was also an important consideration.

Common ground, and shared interests are the number one search criteria on Muddy Matches, ahead of the likes of age and location. Julia fully understands why.

For me, Muddy Matches is the perfect place to meet someone with the same interests; that has stood Simon and I in good stead as a partnership. He still loves shooting and fishing and I am very accepting of letting him do his hobbies.

“I love open water swimming, getting out on my road bike and training our dogs but my first choice would be to go clay shooting with Simon.

It is definitely give and take in a relationship that makes us such a brilliant team.”

Julia’s association with Muddy Matches has history – and it is past that shows how the online dating service has bloomed into a website that is trusted and grounded in rural roots, too.

“I remember first seeing Muddy Matches at a country show, and I did a speed dating event you hosted back in the day. I was in my twenties then. Now I am 38, much water has passed under the bridge, and I involved in a muddy love story, inspired by the website.  
“Thank you Muddy Matches; keep up the good work.”

Award winning, and trusted, Muddy Matches is the UK’s original home of farmer love, and now the nation’s first choice for countryside dating by a clear country mile.
