Niche dating website Muddy Matches has been shortlisted for two awards at the new UK Dating Awards.
“After spending time in London, I realised how difficult it was to meet people with like-minded rural interests,” says Lucy, who originally trained as a translator.
“Many dating and social networking sites cater for different groups, however there was no real niche space for the countryside.
Although there are over 1000 dating websites based in the UK and millions of singles signed up to dating websites, the UK Dating Awards 2014 is the first of its kind to recognise the very best of the UK dating industry.
The awards span the whole industry from traditional forms of dating such as matchmaking and events, through to more modern dating methods including dating apps and websites.
The specialist site for country-minded people was launched in 2008 by two country-loving sisters Emma and Lucy Reeves who were tired of meeting men who didn’t understand the country lifestyle.
At the time Lucy was living in London, but missed the rural setting that she had grown up in and she also missed spending time with people who enjoyed taking part in countryside pursuits.
Free to join, the site had more than 650 subscribers on its official launch on 1 March.The ODA provides general information on common enquiries users have about dating services but will not deal directly with individual complaints which are properly the responsibility of member companies.The ODA monitors enquiry and complaint levels and the issues complained about.Emma and Lucy came up with the idea of Muddy Matches when they went out for drinks in London, and London has remained important in the growing success of Muddy Matches.The sisters continue to run the independent dating site together along with a small team of staff on a farm in rural Bedfordshire.
