Dating For Australian Miners

Dating For Australian Miners

Western Australia’s resource industry is booming thanks to demand for precious metals and minerals from Asia countries.  With tens of thousands of eligible Aussie men chasing the gold and the associated economic explosion in Australian’s mining boom, moving interstate and flocking to remote outback mines, or offshore to the oil and gas sector, in Perth, Darwin and regional Queensland, has created a surplus of men in these areas.

The skewed demographic means these guys, can easily earn six figure salaries but there are few opportunities to find a girlfriend. As anyone knows, spending weeks at a time in a dusty mining camp, hundreds of miles from the nearest pub, and with nothing else in-between except desert plains and rocky gorges, there can be a definite lack of female company.

The Male Dominated Mining Industry

The so called ‘Sheila Shortage’ is well documented, and those single men working on a fly in, fly out (FIFO) roster can find it much more competitive on the social scene, where a dozen different blokes can end up chasing the only one woman in a bar.

There have been several attempts to cash in on the money rich, time poor singletons, including an internet dating site called, ‘meet a mining man’ – no longer running – promising to match miners and gold diggers, and mayor John Molony of Mount Isa’s helpful suggestion, for any lovelorn ugly ducklings to move to a remove mining town to find a partner.

“May I suggest if there are five blokes to every girl, we should find out where there are beauty-disadvantaged women and ask them to proceed to Mount Isa,” he told a local newspaper.

Which of course sparked outrage among the town’s female population and led to furious debates and criticism.

What is it about the typical mining man that makes him so attractive? Is it because he obviously knows how to fix a leaky tap and put up a bookshelf? Is it his rough and tumble exterior? His hard work ethic?

Ask any lady what a miners most positive traits are, and I’m sure she’d reply that miners are both decisive and they are risk-takers. This makes them brave in the face of danger, and able to make decisions. Miners are manly men, plain and simple. And manly men, need feminine women, of which there are plenty, in Thailand.
