Hi ,

I'm thinking of migrating to australia , brisbane/melbourne. I'm planning to work and settle down there. But i'm single and i'm worried i can't find a partner to settle down with in the future in australia.

Is it hard to socialise if you're asian in aussieland?

Thanks.

Hi there,

welcome to the forum.. firstly, how are you planning to settle there? go on a PR visa or look for a prtner, get married and apply fr spouse visa? if it is latter, thn yes, it is difficult to find a partner fr migrating purpose, and if former then it isnt difficult socialising in australia. its about how open you are to non asians and how social you are.

Sorry for not making this clear. Yes i'm with the former.
Alright thank you but glad to hear it is fairly easy to socialise in australia.

More opinions are welcome too. :D

live now, why dont you search the forum for the same, this has been discussed many a times in the past. I am yet to get my visa but just by being in this forum I have made so many friends. many people say it is difficult to talk to people in australia but in my opinion its you yourself who is responsible for a good or bad social circle. I am an extrovert and speak to anyone and everyone. my husband is the opposite, he doesnt open up that easily and yes I do have a huge social circle while his circle is a countable number :)

one can join social clubs depending on your taste and preferences and hobbies, that is what Karen and Dolly (fellow mods) followed when they moved to australia.

If you come across some other secrets, do let us know :p

cheers and wish you luck

I too will be alone in Australia. I think I'll search out groups with similar culture and language as a start. Then expand one's horizon. After all Australia's diversity is its strength.

Good luck!

Just wanted to share ideas on blending in.

I want to join an accredited krav-maga training center. Heard that it enables one to protect oneself after a few months of training? Given up on karate. I dropped out twice on red and blue ;-)

P/S: Tried to edit previous post but prevented after 15 minutes...
