When South Yorkshire single Julia met Geoff whilst country life dating in March 2020, she littered the messages with questions designed to unearth more about her ‘perfect match’.

It worked; now the country couple are engaged to get married, after Geoff posed a question of his own in a Christmas Day proposal.

“It was very romantic” says 80% muddy Julia. “I never expected to meet someone so perfect for me. I met my soulmate on Muddy Matches, and we get married in three weeks time.

“We are eloping to Gretna Green, just the two of us, next month to tie the knot.

It is fitting of a couple of little fuss. They are happy to shun the chance to be centre of attention but keen for their online dating success story to be told by way of a thanks to Muddy Matches.

“We are perfectly matched.” Julia adds. “We are so well suited that we often say the same thing together and have the same ideas at the same time. We even joined Muddy Matches on the same day.  

The countryside connection fully bloomed online, despite living 45 miles apart.

“We talked constantly for the first couple of days then arranged to meet nine days after our initial match. There was a huge spark before the date and the banter in our messages was fun and witty.”

“We shared the same values and interests.”

That first IRL meet was a simple dog walk but Julia admits ‘the spark was even more real in person.’

“We both knew on date two that this was ‘the one’ and cancelled our remaining subscriptions.”

It was definitely a case of job done, and we are delighted Julia and George have flown the next together.

.“Now we laugh a lot and love each other’s company. We have become best friends, as well as life partners.”

“We are both very grateful to have found each other through your site. We would not have met otherwise.

“Our only regret is we didn’t meet each other 20 years ago so we could have been together longer.”
