But according to Patricia Warren, a farmer's wife from Derbyshire who runs the Country Bureau, a rural introduction agency, the country dating scene can be bleak, whatever age you are."Communities are small and people work long hours," she says. "I've gone to so many hunt balls this year, I've become a bit of a joke among my friends."When they ask me why I'm single, I never know how to respond," she says. Here in the country people wonder what's wrong with you.But I'd rather be on my own than with someone who isn't quite right.You may be a plant or animal lover interested in meeting a kindred spirit with whom to embark on the next stage of your life.We are not a naturist, speed dating or mainstream dating site.
Horsey girls aren't that bad really." It shouldn't be difficult to meet a like-minded person in the countryside, given that there is a structured calendar of rural social events, including races and point-to-points.We believe Natural Friends is the best online dating site for environmentally-sensitive, country-loving, spiritually-aware and health-conscious singles aspiring to tread lightly on the earth.We attract members with a diverse range of backgrounds and interests, unique individuals looking for a compatible partner to share interests such as outdoor activities, musical and creative events, human and animal welfare, conservation and personal development.Over here, it seems that young men and women meet through friends, work or in a bar/club and after meeting and consuming alcohol, the newly acquainted individuals go back to someone’s flat and shag.Afterwards, it is decided whether or not they are a couple or just a sad pathetic fumble in the dark.
