Country Partners – A Dating and Introductions Agency in Herefordshire
Country Partners is a traditional face to face dating agency, specifically aimed at country people, living in rural locations all around the UK. The Country Partners agency was first founded way back in 1983 in Shropshire, in the lovely Midlands market town of Ludlow, when two young mums at the school gates decided to start a dating agency for farmers and country folk. Word quickly spread, and an office was soon opened in Herefordshire too, close to Bromyard, from which we operated for many years.
The founder Heather Heber Percy went on to become one of the best known Personal Matchmakers in the UK and still is half a lifetime later. Eventually, because of the strong demand, Heather brought the company to London as The County Register. But that need for dating for country people applies as much today as it always did.
We have now returned to our roots in the rural West Midlands and Cotswolds and can offer you this very traditional and personal service. Many people are relieved to hear that our service is the exact opposite of the swiping left or right on an online dating site or app.
What We Do
People are often surprised that a traditional, face to face, highly personalised option, still exists within the dating world. Particularly those who are under 45, who have grown up with internet-based dating and more recently dating apps on their smartphones, they have never known it any other way.
One of our major differences is that we meet everybody personally, where possible, and interview them face to face to enable us to get to know them thoroughly. Where that is not possible because of distance or on our lower level memberships, we utilise Skype, Zoom or our own in house Microsoft video system. We do this to ensure that clients do still physically resemble their photographs as closely as possible, something an internet-based service just couldn’t provide.
We also check potential members out very carefully through our internal authentication and verification system, which allows us to ensure that all of your potential matches are absolutely genuine and have earned their place on our gold standard database on merit.
The Matchmaking Process
Joining Country Partners usually starts with a phone call to one of our friendly membership advisers, whose task it is to describe our service and how it works, so that you can decide whether or not it’s for you. We are proud to say there is never any hard sell as we don’t have to, we have a constant stream of people wanting our services and to be part of Country Partners. Our approach is always polite and courteous, we prefer to put you in an informed position to decide whether or not you’d like to move forward.
If it is for you, our next task is your initial meeting and interview and the creation of your professional dating profile through one of our Client Registration team. When you have approved it, we are good to go, and it will be time to begin your matchmaking period, this for us is the exciting bit, where you are passed into the safe and experienced hands of our Matchmaking Team.
Meeting your own Personal Matchmaker for the first time in a welcome call, so you can hear how we will be working to progress things for you. We hope that the two of you will then begin a strong partnership over the lifetime of your membership, with our Matchmaker introducing you to carefully selected matches from our unique database, who we feel could be right for you. These methods give us a very high success rate in terms of finding you someone that you really like.
