Things have been moving so quickly here at Stitch Central recently that it’s easy to forget that it’s only a little over two months since we announced ourselves to the world.
In fact, we’re not sure you could even call it an “announcement” …
This gives you some room to get to know each other before you make up your minds.
Firstly, it doesn’t matter if you’re a boy or a girl, anyone can approach anyone.
One of you might suggest going out with a group of friends, or choose something that you both have a mutual interest in.
From there, if you both enjoy the relationship, you’ll start seeing more and more of each other.
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.
It has felt a bit strange, then, that the article which inspired Stitch doesn’t appear on the Stitch blog.
We thought it was high time we republished it here, updated to reflect what we’ve learned from the thousands of people who have registered for Stitch so far and told us their stories. We are all living decades longer than we once did, and are staying fitter, healthier (and in some cases, friskier) further into our wisdom years than ever before.
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.
If you’d like to keep it casual, suggest getting a coffee somewhere you both probably know.
