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.

So if you’re single and looking for someone who’s not averse to a bit of mud, we’re the site for you.

Your security is our number one priority, so all new member profiles are manually vetted and scrutinised by our in-house customer service team to make sure only genuine country people are on this site. So we've made Muddy Matches to reflect your busy, outdoors lifestyle. Lots of people live in the country but enjoy the buzz of the city, or some are city dwellers who like to don their wellies at weekends Take our Muddy-Townie quiz to get your ratio, wear it like a badge of honour and search for other members by their Muddy-Townie ratio.

The ODA monitors enquiry and complaint levels and the issues complained about.

It can intervene if it sees worrying trends or serious matters of concern.

As an ODA Member we are required to have appropriate and effective arrangements in place for dealing with complaints and enquiries.

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.

And the results revealed that couples who had met online were the most satisfied in their relationship, ahead of those who had met through work, in a bar or on a blind date!
