Susses dating sites
More than half, or 53 percent, of single people have created a dating profile, according to Match's recent Singles in America study, which polled over 5,000 single men and women in December.
Today, 40 percent of singles have dated someone they met online, while only 25 percent met a first date through a friend.
"Unlike shopping for a bank or a refrigerator, in the case of online dating, the refrigerator has to like you back," Gilman said.
"There is a different level of exposure to disappointment and that's captured in the poor overall scores." Once considered taboo, online dating is now a socially accepted and booming multibillion dollar business that continues to grow.
In fact, when compared to other consumer products, like cars, computers and credit cards, online dating services received the lowest satisfaction scores Consumer Reports had ever seen, Gilman said.
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.
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!
