Life after Love in the Countryside

Celebrity dairy farmer, ‘Amazing’ Grace Edwards turns to Muddy Matches after flirting with TV love quest on the BBC.

Country life online dating experts Muddy Matches are delighted that dairy farmer – and star of BBC Two series Love in the Countryside – Grace Edwards has entrusted us to boost her search for rural romance.

Over 1.5 million TV viewers watched on weekly as Grace, 24, went on the hunt for her Mr Right who could adapt to her muddy way of life on the 380-acre family farm in the Shropshire hills on the Shropshire-Wales border.

Now, away from the glare of the television cameras, Grace is still eager to unearth a new man in her life – this time supported by Muddy Matches; the original home of farmer dating in the UK.

Grace is now active on Muddy Matches – alongside over 300,000 other rural singletons – and is welcoming of contact from single, country-minded guys, aged between 23 and 32 – who are more than happy to throw on a pair of wellies and get knee deep in mud.

“Every time I do see guys I am usually covered in muck of some description,” Grace says. “So going online and getting to know someone who understands my farming lifestyle and appreciates my commitment to it, will be something new.

“There’s much less chance of the guys being put off by a sheep poo splattered coat when I am online dating with Muddy Matches” Grace adds.  “It’s not a great first impression but it’s my life so part and parcel of me”.

“I have flirted with on dating apps before without too much success as I think some guys find the rural life intimidating. But I think with Muddy Matches being so focussed on country life, there’s a greater chance of meeting guys who are much more suited to who I am, what I am about and what I am looking for.”

As for any potential suiter who fancies his chances? It all comes down to the 3 c’s for dairy farmer Grace – and we don’t mean ‘cows’.

“I’d like a man to be confident, charismatic and chivalrous” Grace tells us. “Oh, and if he’s happy to help me out at 5am knee deep, and or even elbow deep, tending to the herd then all the better.

“For me, it’s all about the animals and their wellbeing, so if you get that then we’ve got more than a fighting chance.”

As the UK’s leading country life dating experience by a clear country mile, Muddy Matches forges connections between folk based upon shared interests in country life, country pursuits, background or rural aspirations.

Currently shortlisted for a ‘Rural Oscar’ by the Countryside Alliance after 12 years of championing companionship and romance in rural and farming communities, Muddy Matches are a trusted name with the people they serve and are fast approaching over ½ million members.

Speaking of Grace joining the site, Muddy Matches co-founder Lucy Reeves said “At Muddy Matches, we pride ourselves on being the dating site of choice for country folk so Grace can be reassured she is in good hands – and hands that know all about her lifestyle, the struggles and the pressures that come with farm life and finding companionship.

“In fact, they were a big part in why we set up Muddy Matches in the first instance, back in 2007.  We are sure there are a lot of young country gents out there keen to contact her and find out more.”
