    Hi all.

    Have been sitting reading a few posts and easily noticed that theres quite a few women out there that are lonely. With or without husbands, kids, jobs, careers, cars or self-esteem, but that are overwhelmed and just plain old lonely (dirty word nowadays).

    Me myself is a currently non-breeding 34 yo that has found that since my move (plus a couple years before that) my social circle has diminished to the point that is getting to me.
    Much of this is my own making – moved away from my community, being a total introvert that loves old-people’s hobbies – but it doesn’t take the need of friendship away.

    So I’m hoping to do some queen matching.

    My thought is that people drop a location for a coffee shop or similar and if there are queens around that might just want or need a bit of socialising and support its just to rock up. It might be great, it might be horrendously awkward – it’s worth a try (I write whilst trying to ignore the little stupid voice saying, ‘No one’s going to like this idea and you’ll be a fool…a fool with no friends and semi public humiliation’) so I’m sticking my neck out here.

    And to be crazy brave I’m going to start. If nothing comes out if this – nothing more than my grand plans got hurt (and I can take that – I hope).

    I propose a coffee/tea date at the Three Fat Duck on Safety Bay Rd in Shoalwater WA on Saturday the 17th September. At 1pm.
    I’ll be wearing a black top/jacket with a red scarf.
    I’ll be bringing a book so I can hide behind it if no one rocks up.

    I just hope that somewhere someone will find some support, some friendship, to make a difficult life a bit easier.

    Much love to all
    Mon

    Well done you! I like the odd Grandma hobby myself. I’ll play!

    I’m newly returnee to Australia after a couple of years in the States. 13yo and 19 month old twins. Not that I don’t love my long term friends, I’d love to make some new friends either with young kids or no kids.

    Anyone up for a meet and greet at Carindale?

    Well that went well – so many people came – NOT. But I’m not easily deterred. Well I am but I’m being a bit crazy. I still think we can get people meeting up through this site. If thee’s so many lonely queens out there – lets do something about it!

    I think it’s more to find out if you have people in your area to meet up with? I’m in cairns in QLD and I doubt there’s many if anyone on here that’s in cairns

    Well that’s what I’m trying to do. I’ve seen someone in Glasgow, Scotland has started a thread and maybe they will meet up. I will continue trying to get a get-together happening.

    Lanne – carindale isn’t far from me and I would love to meet up with some like minded mums who find the isolation hard. I have two boys that are 2.5 years and 15 months, aswell as an older step son. Were you meaning carindale in Brisbane QLD?

    I live in redcliffe Qld, if any other Queen’s live in the area and want to meet up for either a walk along the beachfront, play at a park or maybe even grab some fish and chips give me a shout out!!

    Sending love and positivity to all the Queen’s!!!!
