    hello everyone,

    so ive been in adelaide now for four yrs and love it. but is it me, or is it really hard to meet people here!!??

    the people i have met are lovely and kind, but all seem to be stuck in their clicky groups and dont seem too interested to accept new friends into their circle. im 29, 30 this yr!! ahhhhh. just retired as a painter and looking for a new career. i have a puppy called alfie.

    just looking for some good friends i can catch up with and have a beer or 2, or 3 or.........!

    thanks, sarah:biggrin:

    Hi

    I'm new to this website too looking for the same thing and know exactly what you mean, arrived here June 2007 and live in Modbury area.

    Finding female friends are especially hard to find as they seem to need the mans permission first!!!

    I'm in the same boat and I'm old enough to be your mum! If Alfie would like to play on the beach with Chloe at Seaford you are welcome to make contact. Clickyness is rampant! I can only recommend 'clubs'and 'groups' but there is precious little for people with dogs. Dog parks might be a spot to meet people with a common denominator. Oh for the British pub where you just wander in and chat! It's a different world here socially and if you don't have another half it takes more time to meet people. Volunteering is always good and your local Rotary club would welcome you with open arms, you don't need to wait to be asked, just turn up and say you are interested. Wishing you a busy diary, Sue

    Hey hippie!

    Where are you based? I'm non clicky and always up for a pint. I love dogs too but can't have one in rented house. Boo hiss. I'm near glenelg.

    Come join us at the Richmond Hotel, 25th January, http://www.internations.org

     

    I wouldnt say the group is 'cliquey', but there is definitely a 'core' group who always turn up and come out. I guess that is what it is about for most groups though; the more u meet them, the easier it gets.

    Hi Sarah,

    we (me 28 and Steve 31) are going to the inter nations meet up on Friday so it would be good to not be the only newbies! We have literally just arrived so keen to get out and meet people.

    Otherwise I am always up for a coffee/beer/vino and chat!

    Natalie :-)

    Hi all

    Just a reminder not to put personal phone numbers, facebook links or email addresses in the open forum. Several sections of the site can be viewed by non-members and this rule is for safety and security reasons. To contact someone via PM (Private Message) click with your mouse on their name at the left hand side of the screen - or it sometimes works if you just hover your mouse over the name - then select the Private Message option and share as much info as you want that way!

    Thanks for your patience and understanding

    Diane

    Hi all,

    finally someone else thinks its all a bit "cliquey"....after 4 years too, i totally agree. Im in the eastern burbs, and dont know where the Richmond Hotel is, but i might pluck up the courage to attend......maybe i will ask the OH first tho!!!!!

    seriously, i will only ask hime to go along with me; bear in mind we are a decade older than you lot, so be kind to the elders.

    Cheers

    InterNations is honestly not cliquey at all. Ask Ali, he came on his 2nd day in Adelaide and im hoping he has a good report about it.

     

    There are a couple of ppl going who are 2 decades older than me, and i know of some who have just graduated coming along too. The ranges of cultural background and age makes it a very diverse group!

     

    Richmond Hotel is on Rundle Mall, right opposite the new K-Mart/ToysRus
