    I moved here (Coorparoo) a month ago to join my partner who is from Brisbane. Since I got here I haven't really done much as I am very shy and not very good at meeting new people. Also I have no car and my boyfriend is at work all day and the idea of going out on my own is a little scary. If anyone fancies going out, showing me the sights or generally just having a laugh during the day I would love to get to know the city. It's a bit daunting on my own.:redface:

    I'm 25 and studying to become a bookkeeper/accountant. My boyfriend is an architect and is also 25 (on Sunday :biggrin:)

    A friendly face would be ever so much appreciated, even if you are just about as lost as me.

    Hi Helene
    sorry to hear your feeling down, if you can drive i would seriously look into getting a litle car for yourself. I couldnt imagine living here and having no car, but then again i am a lazy trout who doesnt like walking!lol
    If you have a look at there is a section titles socialising, people often list coffee mornings, nights out etc ,im sure there would be something near you,,
    good luck with everything

    I can't drive. My boyfriend is teaching me at the moment. I lived in London for far too long so all I know is busses and trains and they all seem so confusing here :eek:(

    Hang in there it will be worth it in the end and that also applies to the driving lol, think the bus drivers are confused half the time as well lol. We live in wakerley but are 10+ years older than you plus we have a little one, gor i feel old now after putting that hang on We are in our late thirties, no still feel old.

    Life is for living, live it to the max, never look back on the sad things but always the things that make us smile.

    I'm sure things will look up once I get a job. It's just so scary because it's all so new to me. I've gone from having bright red hair and multiple piercings, living in London and working in bars to dying my hair brown, completely changing my life and living with a heap of guys I don't know and trying to find office work to supplement my Accounting studies. So much change and not so much confidence :eek:(

    I'll get there in the end though :eek:)
