So you’ve fantasized about going to this beautiful island / country called Australia.
The place with sexy young Australian singles just waiting for your international coolness to touch down in the land of the “down under”. But, you did a quick google search or two. Counted the coins in your piggy bank. Soon, you realized that traveling to Australia is a distant dream. It’s unfortunate that you will never meet all the single Australians, to you heart’s content. It’s like the gods are taking a piss at you, this paradise of single beautiful people is inaccessible to you.
Australian Singles: Where are they?
Well here’s the good news!
We will come to you, no need for you to travel to one of the most expensive countries in the world. (“Sydney and its southern cousin, Melbourne, have ranked seventh and eighth most expensive cities to live in out of 140 cities in 93 countries worldwide“, Allianz)
Australian Singles: Who are they?
And here’s the bad news!
We don’t look like any of these pictures on this post! *sadface*. You probably bumped into us without even knowing that we were Australian. (“A new report has found Australia is one of the most multicultural countries in the world“, ABC). Well well well… did I just ruin your dreams even further? Now, don’t get me wrong. I am not saying that there aren’t any really attractive Australian individuals out there. I am just saying, whether they’re attractive or not, you can’t really tell who’s from where these days solely based on someones looks.
So, what do Australian singles look like you say?
Well, you’re on the right path of questioning (not exactly though, explained later). We (Australians) look like everyday people really. Just because mainstream media in your home country has painted the image that Australians have blonde hair and blue eyes, doesn’t make us all look that way. In my personal opinion (coming from a person who literally grew up in Sydney), that image is actually the minority, I would even go as far as saying its a fraction of Sydney’s population.
Look at me and Leshanta for example. I look like I’m from the middle east (I have actually been called a few different things like: Indian, Italian, Thai, Filipino, etc.). Whereas a lot of strangers we bump into through our travels quickly conclude that Leshanta is from India. Long story short, stereotypical appearances that mainstream media portray no longer hold true.
The Silver Lining! Ah… The Silver Lining!
Let me try to recover your shattered fantasy/dreams from the ground with a taste of reality. You’re BETTER OFF! Australia is probably one of the hardest and most expensive places for you to be dating. You buy a girl drink or two, she’ll have her fun and move on to the next guy. You see attractive buff guys, but they’re sitting at a corner having a beer with their mates. (Later in the next article I will describe “Why it sucks to be a single male in Sydney” based on my views and experiences).
ARGGHHH!!! You’ve ruined my dreams!
Not quite! I have dosed you with a hint of reality. The thing with stereotypical ideas is that, there’s always a hint of truth in there. If you really want to be dating Australian singles, then don’t give up on your dreams. Maybe one day you’ll have enough money in the bank for a vacation to Australia. Even better, maybe an Australian hottie will bump into you, asking you directions to a touristic landmark. So my advice is, be alert and don’t judge someone too quickly by their appearance.
