Intentionally or not, most online dating websites favored cities; most users lived in metropolitan areas where “dating culture” was rife and singles who could relate to, let alone prefer, rural life were scarce. There was a need for a site aimed at “country-minded” young people looking for partners who also understood the unique contours of farming or other outdoor professions.And the sisters happened to be intimately familiar with that “countryside” mindset and what it would take to appease it as a customer base.British sisters Lucy Reeves and Emma Royall spent a lot of their young adulthood putting distance between themselves and the countryside where they grew up, first to different boarding schools and then to university; after school, each spent several years living abroad, Royall getting into scuba-diving off tropical islands and Reeves exploring the local nightlife of cities far from home.Eventually, however, the glamour of the international cosmopolitan life dimmed.Sometime during their mid-20s, responsibility — and their pastoral roots — began calling them back.“In Spain and Argentina, I worked in bars and went to bed at six or seven in the morning,” says Reeves.

Then, one spring day in 2006, the pair met for lunch and drinks in the city.Reeves, now able to work remotely, finally returned to the countryside, where she still lives with her partner Steve.
