I'm sure there are many of us who have consoles and would welcome some (mature) friends to play and enjoy ourselves with, but maybe, like myself, feel like you need to actually start playing with people to feel like a TOG member even if you have some on your friends list. I've been there and have had that experience (on PC) but have lost it since i haven't played for almost 2 years and feel like i'm starting back at the beginning. Keep on board i say - not sure what else to suggest to be honest.
We're right at the end (or close to the start) of the console cycle, so there are bound to be less people around right now other than those (like me!) suffering from nostalgia sickness or catching up before obsolescence hits.
I know there are US members on here and an hour or two time-difference should make little difference, but the ping improvements that come with increased internet quality make playing with Aussies who are on at all hours an option.
You know we're the better gamers anyway...
