Determined to settle down with a rural type, Lindsay Lyon, who works in London and lives in Buckinghamshire, has joined rural dating site Muddy Matches.Her townie friends find it hilarious but the 24-year-old, who is a special funds coordinator at St George’s Hospital, in south London, with a passion for interior design, believes the internet is her only hope of finding love.

“It’s Tinder for country types,” she explains, likening it to the cult dating app that connects users and allows them (anonymously, thank goodness) to “like” or “reject” after seeing someone’s profile picture.

Lindsay tried networking the traditional country way – attending rural events such as the Sheep Dog Trials at Northleach in Gloucestershire, but she struggled to persuade her London friends to accompany her, and when she did, the group never met anyone new.

“It’s nerve-racking, socialising with people you don’t know,” she says.

Many country-loving singles aged 18-26 find love at their local branch of Young Farmers, an organisation with 25,000 members that arranges ski trips and dances for young country dwellers.

But Lindsay felt a fraud signing up as she works in a city and doesn’t come from a farming background.

“It’s hard to find the right group that leads to meeting new people,” she says.

This was also the experience of Lucy Reeves, from Northamptonshire, who founded Muddy Matches in 2007, aged 25, with her sister Emma, who was 27 at the time.

They’d failed to meet anyone through Young Farmers, and while they enjoyed going to rural events such as the CLA Game Fair and Badminton Horse Trials, they only ever met up with people they knew. I’d be surrounded by good-looking, like-minded people my age but I didn’t have the nerve to barge up to them and introduce myself,” Lucy says.

Fiona Eastman, who is organising the Country Life Fair at Fulham Palace, is convinced that the Get Muddy dating app will break the ice between singles at the event.
