This is probably gonna sound like the dumbest question on here, but I dont really care lol What are some good ways of meeting vegan friends outside of the net aswell?  Ive just moved back to the Gold Coast  and all my old friends are too busy with uni work to hang out and I'd just like to meet some friends who  have similar interests to me lol I'm not a freak...but i would like to meet some new friends :p

I know how you feel, the only vegans I know are the people on here and the person online who I have to thank for opening my eyes. Out in the real world, I'm wishing I had more friends who's idea of a good time wasn't throwing corpse on BBQ.

Find a local group of vegans that meet up for dinners. Vegetarian Societies are usually a good place to start. Veg Soc of QLD (http://www.vegsoc.org.au/) arrange meals occasionally, and sometimes these are on the Gold Coast.

You could also start volunteering for a local animal group. Animal Welfare League on the Gold Coast do amazing work and would be well worth supporting.

Likewise for other interests you might have, find some local groups that meet up based on that interest. Or start taking classes in something that you'd like to learn (eg. dance, yoga, art, etc).

Hey Britti, I'm down the Coast sometimes living in Maryborough, QLD at the moment because it was so cheap to buy a house! But we still visit the Coast regularly.

Where about on the Gold Coast are you?

I would say getting involved with my local animal shelter helped me meet the most like minded friends I have today. I now am proud to say I have 6 vego friends with similar interests! go me! lol but then again most of them I have converted wink

That brings me to my next suggestion! Convert your existing friends into vegans wink

Hi Leesa happy
I live in Oxenford. Your lucky to have friends that you have so much in common with. I don't think I would ever try convert my friends because they probably wouldnt wanna be around me lol they are a little bit naive (I mean that in the nicest way :S ).
Also they'd actually have to be around for me to convert them lol I asked my friend Pete if he wanted to go to the beach this Saturday, but made the famous excuse of having too many assignments for uni due. Which is fair enough.

Thank you for everyones suggestions. I wish people on here all lived in the same area lol It'd be nice to meet some of you happy

Do something that you're passionate about like participating in a protest. There will be people there who feel just as strongly as you do and voila! Common interests! happy

How do I know when one is on though lol I'm clearly new to this. I am a singer so im thinking of joining this group down at palm beach who are all musicians so that should be good. It'd be nice to  be able to go have lunch or dinner with a friend  at a vegan resturant though lol These are all great tips guys! I will have to do some research on where I can do some volunteering, I've been wanting to get off my arse and do it for  a while.
