If you’d like to keep it casual, suggest getting a coffee somewhere you both probably know.
A very average Aussie relationship might go something like this: You meet at work or school, and you talk and get to know each other.
The first time you hang out, it’s probably not on a formal date.
This makes for a pretty fun and flexible dating culture, which forces people to get to know one another.
We’ve answered some common questions from international students to help you navigate the Australian dating scene.
Are you in a position where you now need to start making and meeting new friends to expand your social activities?
Well no need to despair as you are not alone in your quest, we have 1000's of members who are in the exact same position as you.
In a lot of cultures, the first or second date can mark the beginning a relationship.
But in Australia, you’ll probably find yourself doing a lot of ‘couply’ activities the relationship starts.
As a general rule, whoever suggested the outing should at least, offer to pay first.
But it’s becoming more common to split payments on dates – especially when you’re both students – so don’t be alarmed if your date wants to chip in as well. There are more Australians with Facebook accounts than without.
