While the 38-year-old from Caloundra is yet to find love herself, she said the group had led to plenty of long-lasting friendships.
"It's not the date that's hard to find, the problem is finding someone on the same page," Jody said.
ARE you single and ready to mingle but struggling to find love? The Sunshine Coast Daily asked its online readers why it's tough to find love on the Coast and received an overwhelming response from singles.
Sunshine Coast Dates and Mates organiser Jody is keen to help others improve their odds in finding a companion locally.
"It's more of a social thing and there isn't the pressure of an online date where you have to decide straight away," Jody said.
Despite social groups providing a comfortable setting for singles, figures show the 35-45 age group makes up almost half the members on Australian dating sites.
Interestingly, she also found about 60% of potential dates online were fly-in, fly-out workers.
And while she wouldn't reject someone because they were a fifo worker, she felt it was harder to get to know someone who worked away.
"When you're on an online date you're one-on-one and you're stuck there if it's awkward," she said.
The group hosts social activities for singles aged 30-45 such as squash, poker and trivia nights.
The annual RSVP Date of the Nation report released yesterday showed 17% of Australians who used online dating have found a long-term relationship as a result.
