Who is really signed up here?
Since the dating platform is UK-based, most members are from different parts of UK and some parts of Ireland. Your matches would definitely be from these countries. They are either looking for friendship or a serious and real relationship. Regardless of age and gender, the main target group are those who love the country life or muddy peeps. While it is was created though for those 100% muddy, townies or city folks are welcome to join as long as they also love country life.
With regard to fake profiles, there are actually a lot. Unfortunately, there are no safety measures to know and avoid their existence. Indeed, there is a verification process once you register and an approval from the admin of your account, but such doesn't dig in deeper if the account owner is a fraud or a fake. You can report a profile if the person behind it behaves maliciously, but there is no assurance from the site if such account will be suspended or deleted.
