2. Hit the Gym. Get fit and get social at the same time. Become a regular at any gym and you'll soon start to get to know people. There are hundreds of gyms in and around Brisbane that cater for many different styles of workout. Don't force it, but let the introduction and conversations happen naturally. Your effort will pay off. Check out a gym in your area here.
3. Learn to Dance. This is a personal favorite of mine, and in most classes I've taken, there have been an over whelming number of ladies to gentlemen. So particularly for the guys, this is a great way to meet lots of lovely active ladies all in a single night. River City Ballroom in Brisbane's West End teaches a range of lessons and caters from complete beginner to advanced. Definitely put this one on your to do list!
4. The Markets. Brisbane is blessed with some amazing markets. We recommend the Eat Street Markets, Boundary Street Markets and the Jan Powers Farmers Markets. Grab a coffee or strike up a conversation about your mutual love of cronuts (half croissant, half donut…yes this is a real thing) from the Kromberry van and then find a quite place to share them. These days, these markets are packed full of people and a great way to meet.
5. Follow your passion. Do something your passionate about. It could be playing a sport, arts & crafts, pistol shooting, doll making or building a business. Google whatever you love doing and find others that love doing it too. Join a team, a club, or start your own. At the very least you'll have something in common with the people you will meet, and you'll be doing something that you love doing. Its a win win!
