Default The 'New to Dubai and & Looking for Friends" thread #3 - Introduce yourself here :)

Our previous 'New to Dubai and looking for friends' thread has reached 90 pages long, so time for a new one

This is the 'official' thread for new expat introductions and making friends.

Post here if you are new to Dubai and tell us a little bit about yourself! Where do you come from? How long you've been in Dubai for? Did you move here on your own or with your partner/family? How are you finding it?

Also keep an eye on the forum as expat get togethers are being organised very often, and that is a great way to meet new people and make friends.

Just a couple of things:

1. As a friendly reminder, please keep in mind that the main purpose of this forum is to exchange information about moving to Dubai. Making new friends is a recurrent topic, hence this thread. However this is not a dating forum and posts of such nature, or that look like 'dating profiles' are often reported by forum users and deleted immediately (this applies to all the forum sections and countries).

2. Also please note that the purpose of this thread is INTRODUCTIONS and NOT chit chat.

Welcome, enjoy Dubai, and enjoy the forum!!

Hello all <waves>

I've been lurking for a while, thought it was time I introduced myself rather than just reading the boards and absorbing all the info!

Myself and my husband will be landing in the sandpit on Friday...so about to go fully fledged expat any day now...he is transferring out with his company and I'll be job hunting when I get there.

We're leaving bonny Scotland to come there (though he's a Sassenach!), I'm late 30s, female, no children in tow and like triathlon, books, wine, cooking, camping, the outdoors, any water based activities, drinking beer, travelling and good chat with lovely people.

We'll be living in JLT for about three weeks, then going to Jumeirah...so I will take my courage in both hands and try to make a meet soon

So, I guess you are also looking for friends as well as just finding people places to live ?

Default Not really new to Dubai anymore but new to this forum

My name is Sandrine and I'm from Switzerland, I moved here from Switzerland in January. I came with my British husband and our 22 month son.

Still struggling to make friends even though we've been here a while. Any other stay at home mum out here wanting to meet up for a coffee and playdate, let me know!
