    Fitting in and making friends

    Hello, my family and I have been living in Perth for just over 4 years..we moved from Scotland in the middle of the worst winter I can remember!! I moved with work and fortunately this has kept me really busy. My youngest son was born here and my OH has stayed at home to look after him and ferry the older two in and out of school. We don’t have family out here, so my wife needed something to keep herself busy...help her make friends and earn some money while looking after our boys. The absolute best thing in the world for her has been party planning / direct selling. Every day she’s chatting to new people or folk she’s either organised parties for or has recruited. I’m not going to quit my job this minute..but she’s earning enough to keep herself and Kmart happy and its growing. I’m really pleased for her, it ticks alot of boxes for our family, giving her friends, flexibility, a fun (low stress) income and the ability to work towards some really attractive goals. I’ve read a number of posts from people that are struggling to settle and make friends. It could be stepping outside your comfort zone a bit..but that’s often the best path to take! Don’t go and make yourself another coffee or check to see if the postie has been Go online and google direct selling / multi level marketing / party planning…find something you’re interested in and connect with their consultants. Even if you do have another job...we could all do with more friends and a bit of a stretch target. It may not suit everyone..this is just something that's made it easier for us to settle.

  3. Ok, so, i have lived in Brisbane for over a year now. I am a permanent resident and moved over here on my own back in May, i met my friend from my previous work here who was on a working visa, we flat shared together and it was good as we have common ground. He moved to NZ around 2 weeks ago. My parents and sister moved here in October, my sister is 18 and she moved back home after 3 months, my parents are fine as they have each other and they live by the beach.. I have recently realised that my social life here is not brilliant, yes i have met some friends but they are all over the age of 28 and are iether married, engaged or not on exactly the same level as me.. My unit lease ends in four weeks and now im reviewing my options with moving back to the UK as an option so i can enjoy being social and young.. Help! :eek: Just wondering if there are any other people around 18-25 who are also having these problems? If so, message me and maybe we can arrange to meet etc. Cheers, Luke

  6. Hi everyone, My husband and I will arrive in Brisbane end of Sep 2011. We both start jobs early Oct. We are so excited but a little apprehensive as expected as moving away from family and friends is hard for most. We have a large circle of friends here, and like to do a variety of different things, meals, drinks, activities ( cycling, running etc) so looking to meet a range of people and make new friends. We are late 20s realy 30s and are very sociable people, so we would love to hear from you and maybe get something arranged a few weeks after we arrive. Look forward to hearing from you. The Baxters!:laugh:

  23. Hey! I'm a 26 year old guy . I moved from London to Sydney for work about 9 months and as much as I love the city, I think the trickiest thing has been finding a few friends to go out for beers/beach ect with and just have a laugh at the weekend. Would love to hear from people in the same postion as me that fancy meeting up for a few drinks and a bit of a night out. Cheers Jon

P.S: Friends are playing a very big part in my life!!! :jiggy:
