Hi There,

I havent arrived yet (should be Mid December) but I would be very interested in getting together.

I feel that I am going to have to make a real effort and meet new friends to settle in xx

Meeting people shouldnt be hard, meeting good people might be. Dubai is a place that is filled with people of all kinds so i am sure you'll be able to find someone.

Apparently there is a facebook group for thursday night drinks, you could meet someone that way too!

I too moved few months back and its been more work than socializing, hopefully it will change soon!

Welcome to Dubai!

I'll be moving to Dubai in mid November. From what I've learnt, Dubai is a melting pot of different people, cultures and you will meet people if you put the effort in!

Check out the Sandpit sub-forum as you can introduce yourself in there when it's time for you to hop on that and make the move

As in most countries (maybe even more so) the 2 best way to meet with new people are sports and taking classes.

As you are not working and your partner is, it will be hard to go out all the time to bars and stuff, as he will probably be more tired then you when coming home, and want to stay in rather than go around town all the time.

But you will have time during the day to get into sports or classes.

The DUCTAC at mall of the emirates has a huge selection of topics and trades to choose from, ranging from Arabic Classes to Pottery on the wheel, going through such things as drawing, painting, acting, instruments, dancing, etc.

Dancing can be a very good choice (if your partner is up for it), as it will offer the easiest opportunity to see people outside of the class to go practice "in the real world" outside of the studio and in a relax ambiance.

Sports also will get you in with a more or less eclectic crowd depending on the sport you choose.

The nice thing about these choices, is that you will get into contact with various nationalities. Most "hip" places, and bars and such are "colonized" by one category of people, and you will be hard pressed to mix-in.
Then again, it all depends on what you want. If being around French people is your cup of tea, then the Alliance Francaise organizes events all the time.

.
..
...

Oh, and by the way : Welcome to Dubai !

For the OP, Thursday Nights Drinks (TND) night is a fun time to meet up with new people. I was here for a year and a half and nearly went crazy not knowing a lot of people, started going for TND and met some real nice people. Good times.

Welcome to dubai

Dubai is a place for one, who wants to be a Global......

Else than bar and drinking stuff, i believe we all should form a think tank to share our views on every topic and at the same time have fun together in our leisure time (usually weekends), just to promote harmony and globalization.
