"I have met a few really nice people, but as you get older you're more self-aware.It's not a bad thing but it does narrow your odds down." Jody tries online dating but is yet to find someone she clicked with.Interestingly, she also found about 60% of potential dates online were fly-in, fly-out workers.And while she wouldn't reject someone because they were a fifo worker, she felt it was harder to get to know someone who worked away.While the 38-year-old from Caloundra is yet to find love herself, she said the group had led to plenty of long-lasting friendships."It's not the date that's hard to find, the problem is finding someone on the same page," Jody said.Tea and coffee and chat time at meetings encourage social and friendly contact between members.Telephone the Club Information Line 07 54921005, e mail to [email protected] or visit the Website : more information about the Club and to view an informative introductory video about the benefits of joining the Sunshine Coast Computer Club Inc.
It's tricky to start a new relationship as they're working away so much." While she was happy to give online dating a go, Jody felt more comfortable in the group social setting provided by Dates and Mates.“I found that I had been looking at guys that ticked all the boxes and were exactly what I was looking for but then they ended up being so disappointing.” When Ben contacted her she was at first sceptical. These sessions are a great opportunity to meditate with others in a supportive environment and establish a time each week to spend on your own inner development. “I don't go out clubbing and I don't drink and it's hard to meet guys when you work full-time.So I thought I should give it a try – it was an experience.” At first she was a little nervous to go on what was essentially a blind date but soon became savvy after a few dud dates.
