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.
Truth be told, there are still a lot of negative beliefs surrounding online dating and many folks believe those negative comments to be true.
What they don’t realize is that by not even giving online dating a chance, they are missing out on something truly special.
Internet dating has moved on since the early Noughties, when singles exchanged lengthy emails before arranging to meet in person.
When Lindsay, who lives in Beaconsfield, attends the inaugural Country Life Fair in London later this month, she’ll be able to connect with potential suitors using Muddy Matches’ new dating app, exchanging text messages before – hopefully – meeting people in person at the champagne bar.
He was a generally attractive guy, in good shape, great job, all the good on paper qualities that should count for at least something. Not so much that I think the guy even notices that shit, just all the bells and whistles that make me happy and feel at my most confident.
He made me laugh, and seemed very interested in me. I enjoy the ritual of femme performance and adornment. I threw on a coat of clear polish, tied my hair up in a bun, put on medium coverage foundation, a nude lip, a maxi dress, and called it one.
Instead, many people look toward another method that continues to gain popularity among singles.
He had passed the initial conversational tests; decent sense of humor, didn’t say anything transphobic, homophobic, misogynist, or self loathing.
All seemingly low standards, but as a 31-year-old Black woman in the field, all standards a lot of men frequently fail to meet.
It’s the story of a small community facing the challenges of responsibility and change.
This time, what’s at stake is one of the world’s greatest natural treasures.
