Based in Brisbane's south/south-west between Forest Lake and Springwood, a Random Singles lunch or dinner is scheduled approximately every fortnight catering for the 50s plus age group who may be looking for a potential date, or those who would simply like to socialise and meet new people. A social group first and foremost, we generally just prefer to chat and chill, however we have had some "activities" previously including several dance nights, karaoke, barefoot bowls, Draculas, a ghost tour, movie nights, a visit to an historical mansion and a family bbq. Very soon we hope to also be visiting a couple of wineries, as well as adding a regular Trivia Night to the calendar, so stay tuned!
We go everywhere from Bayside to the northern end of the Gold Coast to Tamborine, and many areas in between as members are spread across all southside suburbs and beyond. We always meet at a different (random) location - that's half the fun - so check the calendar to see where we're at! We are also renowned for being very friendly, so don't be shy!! Our gatherings are relatively small and less rowdy, so you actually have a chance to get to know other members better. Isn't that what it's all about? We have a core group of regulars within the group whom you may even know from other meetups. Either way you won't be a stranger for long!
A one-off joining fee of $10 is requested to help keep the meetup group going online for the administration cost (yes, it costs money to run these sites!), and then a gold coin donation may apply at some events for the organiser's time and expenses. Your joining fee can be paid by Paypal or directly at your first or second meetup.
If you join the group but don't make the effort to attend any events after a reasonable time, eg, within 12 months, then you will be deemed "inactive" and removed from the group. Please note that this is not a dating site.It is a social group only, so if you intend to join, then you join to be social. Otherwise "inactive" and unpaid members risk being culled and may not be able to re-join the group.
Thus the group has three rules (a) Members must be social, at least once or twice a year, (b) Members must put up a profile photo within a month of joining, and (c) Members must not be propositioning other members via email - guys if you wish to meet the ladies, then you come to a meetup!
If you do decide to join the group, then please checkout the Discussion tab for my interactive blogs and other information, and make sure you have ticked the box under Settings to receive notifications! Go to email@example.com if you are not receiving emails from the group.
