Lonely German backpacker, 20, sick of only talking to small children and Tinder dates who want to get into her pants turns to Facebook to find ‘girly girlfriends’

  • Line Schallmayer, 21, works as an au pair in Port Macquarie for two young kids 
  • But the children’s single mother is the only adult Ms Schallmayer speaks to 
  • The backpacker took to a Facebook community page to find Aussie girlfriends
  • Ms Schallmayer said more than 20 women have written to her wanting to meet

A lonely German backpacker working as an au pair has turned to Facebook to find female friends, fed up with men from Tinder who only want to have sex.

Line Schallmayer arrived in Australia in March before the Covid-19 pandemic worsened, but she has only had prolonged contact with the kids she nannies for.  

The 21-year-old, who is living in Port Macquarie, took to a Facebook community page to see if she could find any friends there after attempts on dating apps failed.

Ms Schallmayer said more than 20 Australians have written to her wanting to meet up

‘I would love to catch up for a coffee, a day at the beach, nice walks or a movie night to make some friends,’ she posted to the group ‘Mid North Coast Gal Pals’. 

Ms Schallmayer said more than 20 Australians have written to her wanting to meet up. 

‘I feel that I am desperately in need for some girly girlfriends. I just want a girlfriend to chat to. With all these Tinder boys, I’m so sick of small talk,’ she told news.com.au.

‘Travelling is nice and stuff but sometimes you really feel lonely and I miss talking to someone who isn’t a child or a Tinder date.’

Ms Schallmayer, originally from Frankfurt, has already had a coffee with one Australian woman and has another meet-up planned for Tuesday.

The tourist was forced to stay in Australia when lockdown begun as she couldn’t afford the $8,000 ticket back to Germany.  

In September Ms Schallmayer scored a cheap flight home for just $1000, but after travelling through Port Macquarie she ‘fell in love with it’ and decided to stay

She was able to briefly travel with three other backpackers when restrictions eased, but all of them have since gone home. 

‘It (the loneliness) started a couple of weeks ago. Christmas season, so I started missing my family, especially my sister,’ she said.

Ms Schallmayer looks after a toddler and a 10-year-old, but their single mother is the only adult she speaks to.

The university student plans to stay Down Under until her visa runs out next March.
