We're told that many of the best business ideas are developed in the pub, and this is where we were in 2006, mulling over the changing perception of online dating sites and their increasing popularity in urban areas, when we came up with the idea for Muddy Matches.
Since then, the site has gone from strength to strength, with thousands of people from the UK and Ireland joining every month and many thousands of success stories.
Whilst our team has expanded over the years, we're still a family-run business, operating out of a converted barn on a farmyard in Northamptonshire, and pride ourselves on our friendly customer-service and the fact that we are the only independent dating site for genuine country-minded people.
Whatever you are looking for, we wish you luck on Muddy Matches!
We are a member of the Online Dating Association (ODA) which was set up to ensure high standards of behaviour by dating service providers serving the UK.
The ODA Code of Practice is binding on members of the Association.
The CMA discovered that people who signed up to Venntro’s websites were often unaware their information would be stored in a central database and that their profiles might be visible on the company’s other dating sites.
It also saw complaints from people who said they had signed up for sites featuring explicit adult content without realising that they were doing so.
We took action against Venntro because we were concerned people’s profiles were being placed on sites without their knowledge or permission, and that they were being misled about how likely they were to meet someone with common ground.
As a result of our investigation, Venntro has now pledged to be more upfront with its customers in future.
We work hard to make sure that your safety and privacy are never compromised. You can use our site on your computer, tablet and mobile phone. If you've been on the site for a while it might be time to give your profile a makeover.
