Moment of Madness whilst dating bonds Ellie & Julian

Wednesday, March 23rd, 2022

It must be love, love, love between outdoorsy couple Ellie and Julian, as a shared moment of ‘Madness’ whilst online dating bonds them on Muddy Matches.

The thriving countryside connection of the two ‘young at heart’ West Country singles, who met whilst on UK online dating site Muddy Matches really is ‘one step beyond’!

Ellie, 60% muddy and ‘happiest in wellies or walking boots’, mutually matched with Julian whilst country-life dating with us in August 2021. Their first IRL meet came in early September.

“Our first date was a lovely afternoon stroll around Exeter Quay,” a 50% muddy Julian tells us. “Ellen was friendly right from the off and lived quite close by.”

“More importantly she said her favourite group was Madness, who are also my favourite band. So we made a plan right from the start to go see them in Cardiff last December.”

In fact, Ellie, an NHS worker of 30 years, says the ‘best night out with her two kids’ – who have both flown the nest – was watching Madness at the Eden project.

It was music to the ears of Julian, who admitted in his dating profile that he had a fondness for a ‘nice pint and live music.’

Now the pair have plans in place for their own House of Fun as attention turns to them moving in together later this year – Ellie lives in Somerset, whilst Julian is in Devon currently – as their fledging rural relationship blooms.

There’s talk afoot too of buying a campervan – a pipedream of Ellie’s – ‘in the near future’ so the country couple can take their love of travel and passion for coastal walks further afield.

And of course, Ellie’s little King Charles Cavalier Spaniel, Nessie, will come along for the ride.

“The three of us love going for countryside and coastal walks down in Devon and Dorset, and we stay in a cottage in rural Cornwall whenever we get the chance,” Julian adds.

“We’re still going strong and we’ve got lots planned this year, including a family holiday in Italy.

“I said in my profile that it would be amazing if I could find someone to go on my next adventure with. Ellie is that person!”
