I don't think I need to define walking, suffice it to say that it isn't necessarily the same thing as a sober pub crawl across the fells....So we might conclude that hiking is the most strenuous way to make new friends, walking is the middle ground, and rambling is the least exhausting.As well as the countryside online dating site, we also put on a few social events aimed at country people, the most well-known of which is our popular Mud Lovers Ball.For more details about this and other events, please visit our countryside social events page.Traditionally dating and making new friends is carried out at parties and in pubs, but these activities don't necessarily attract many ramblers and walkers keen on the outdoors.Online dating allows keen walkers and ramblers to find other walking friends and partners in a safe and self-selecting environment.You will see our contact details on the right-hand side of this page but you can also keep up to date on the latest news and special offers by following us on our Muddy Matches Twitter Page, Muddy Matches Facebook Page, Muddy Matches You Tube Page, Muddy Matches Linked In Page and Muddy Matches Google Page.
Additional categories exist on however for mountaineering, scrambling and climbing as these go beyond normal hillwalking.
Many members of Outdoor Duo are searching for both partners and friends.
Many love the fact that the site not only gives them the opportunity to meet the right partner, it also introduces them to many walking friends along the way.
A new study of online dating site members has found that when couples who had built up a significant relationship by e-mailing or chatting online met for the first time, 94 per cent went on to see each other again. The UK seems to be the only place that has ramblers, whereas hiking seems a bit of a foreign activity. The Oxford Dictionary defines rambling as, "the activity of walking in the countryside for pleasure" which rather intriguingly suggests that walking is not always associated with enjoyment!
Hiking is defined as, "a long walk or walking tour" which definitely has the ring of sodden boots, sore feet and a large drink in a warm pub associated with it.
