About Country Partners

In 1983, Heather Heber Percy, one of the best-known names in UK dating, created the Country Partners agency. Country Partners is now known as ‘The North’s own Exclusive Dating service’, and covers the whole northern part of the UK.

Our coverage includes the counties of West Yorkshire, East Yorkshire, South Yorkshire, North Yorkshire, Teesside, County Durham, Tyne and Wear, Northumberland, Cumbria, Lancashire, Greater Manchester, Merseyside, Cheshire, Shropshire, the North Midlands, North Wales and Scotland.

Most people these days are very familiar with how online dating works, but Country Partners provides a service that is vastly different from that. We interview on a face-to-face basis and carefully vet every potential joiner. To keep the very high standards of our members, we provide a professional profile for everyone, to present you at your absolute best. There is an optional photography service included if you visit our office.

More than anything, we preserve your anonymity and confidentiality. On an online site your photographs and highly personal details will be available to everyone, even none members, which on a busy site means that your profile is being viewed hundreds of times a day, by the general public but also by potential fraudsters and scammers. Not something that is welcomed by many, particularly if you prize your confidentiality.

So our commitment to you is as follows, your details and photographs will never, ever appear on a public website and will always remain as private between you, your matchmaker, and carefully selected individuals that we feel may be a match for you. At higher membership levels, there is an option to extend this, so that your profile and photographs only go out to people that have been pre-approved by you.

Our vetting process for members is also something we are incredibly proud of at Country Partners. You can be safe in the knowledge that your dates are all carefully checked as follows:

  • They have produced photographic ID to prove their identity
  • We have checked out their residency.
  • They do not live with a wife/husband/partner/ex-partner.
  • They are not involved in crime.
  • They are solvent and are joining us for the right reasons.

We have a large team of Personal Matchmakers and Membership Adviser’s and will handle your application to join and your membership, carefully, sensitively and professionally. We are also happy for you to visit our Head Office to meet the team at any time. We always make visitors very welcome. It can, of course, be very reassuring to see the professionalism with which we operate and how your membership will work for you first hand.

We have an extensive database, so there is a wide choice of members from which we can select others to recommend to you. However, we do know from our experience over the years that opposites often attract and that sexual chemistry usually comes from diversity rather than commonality. Our service is very much about providing choice, an entirely different experience to joining a small local agency, who may only have a few dozen members at any one time, and running the agency from home on a part-time basis rather than an office.

Throughout your membership period, which is often between 6 months and 18 months, you will get to know your matchmaker very well. They become a friend as well as a guide and mentor. Dating can often become a bit of a jungle, and having someone to guide you through it can be incredibly helpful. Our matchmaking team are around every day to do just that and provide a service second to none.
