If St Valentine's Day finds you sourly reviewing another passing year of dispiriting , mate-less, rural isolation, take heart and read on. Together. Rural dating is awash with possibilities but you need to be proactive. "The internet has opened up a fun and less embarrassing way for.
He proposed to me in a bird hide last summer. I turned around and he was on one knee. I tell as many people as possible about the website now. But the internet can't solve the problem of geography. You need to be relaxed to flirt. In an ideal world, rural dwellers would go on dates in a local town and take a taxi home, she says, but in reality it's not that simple. Driving is an unavoidable part of living in the country and something that people like Vittoria have to accept. Driving to parties in the country became one of my best pulling techniques; everyone wants a lift home.
But what's the point of falling in love with someone who lives miles away from your house? Charlotte Martin has found that living where she does, with a rural-focused career, narrows down the field of potential suitors. When I was younger I didn't have so many imaginary boxes to be ticked; I just thought: I've got to find someone with a country mentality. They don't have to be horsey but they've got to be like-minded. I can't see myself pushing a pram around Fulham.
Occasionally Charlotte worries that she is being too fussy: If I'm asked out on a date there's more pressure for it to work, but then I remind myself that I don't want to settle for Mr Second Best. According to Patricia Warren, there are plenty of suitable men for Charlotte, if only they'd come forward. Often they don't have time to go to all the rural social events because of work. Ben Turner, 29, who owns a farm near Bury St Edmunds in Suffolk, agrees that you can get caught in a rut if you live on a farm. Hunt balls and racing are the only things that buck the trend, I suppose," he says.
But it's slim pickings: Tom Cooper, a land agent for Buccleuch Estates in Scotland, says that 95 per cent of the people he sees on a day-to-day basis are men. If Louise Elliott's research is anything to go by, farmers shouldn't give up hope. Her survey showed that 76 per cent of girls born into a farming background hoped to marry a farmer.
Patricia Warren has a number of farmers on the Country Bureau's books, mainly in their forties and fifties. David, 46, a farmer from Cumbria, has a "laid-back" attitude and enjoys motoring, sport and wants to travel, while Mark, 50, from Gloucestershire, has an English Language and Literature degree, and enjoys fly fishing holidays on the River Usk, and reading history and poetry.
I use the experience I have gained over the years to match people. I take into account age, height, build and occupation before sending out profiles," she says. The one thing I can't detect is whether there is any chemistry. She wishes women wouldn't leave it until their late thirties and early forties.
They want to have children and live the same rural lifestyle that they did when they were younger. It's often frustrating that they didn't come to me sooner as there are plenty of farmers around.
Of course, the last resort for lonely hearts in the country is to move to a more metropolitan area — something Balfour suggests. But most country folk would rather be alone than live in a town, where dating is a different thing entirely. A good hat stops your hair getting blown around if you're outside, but on the whole you can go for a natural look," Vittoria Pannizon says.
Archie Hardyment, 26, was surprised by the relaxed social scene he became part of when he moved to a cottage in Oxfordshire after leaving university. Even though he isn't particularly interested in horses, he has made friends at point-to-points and via the local polo club. There are fewer people around, but you get to know them better. Lucy Reeves insists that people shouldn't give up on finding love in the country. Pace of life slowing a bit now but can be passionate about the I am a good friend, have time to share and I am excited about living life.

Muddy Matches members using the app can browse photographs of people at the event whose profiles appeal, and send them texts. In , when the Reeves sisters decided to give online dating a go — secretly, because the notion of finding love with a stranger via the internet had only recently started to lose its stigma — they failed to find a dating site aimed at young, country-minded singles. Muddy Matches now has more than , members and Lucy has stopped counting the weddings, although the total has reached well over a thousand.
The site is designed to cope with painfully slow broadband speeds found in some rural areas and the fact that a proportion of members are still using dial-up internet connections, but it is also now fully responsive, as 50 per cent of Muddy Matches traffic is via mobile phone and tablets.

Lucy and her sister, fearing it was unethical to join their own site but eager for a success story of their own, eventually signed up to a rival, and are consequently both in long-term relationships.
