Would it help if I said I was early 30's and female? I thought I would have had some response! I don't just want to socialise with people from work. Don't people on here have some sort of regular meet?

I have obviously gone about this the wrong way! I don't want messages from random men. I was looking for friendship pref from women, I have a boyfriend and I am not interested in meeting people that are after anything other than friendship.
Thanks

Hi - don't worry I'm female !!!

Hi, I take it you've just moved to Dubai then ? My husband has been offered a relocation so we should hopefully be coming out in January. How are you finding it ? There's so much to sort out, we've got 2 children and we're just looking at schools at the moment !!!

Any tips would be great.

Hi Paula

Hi Paula,

Of course I don't mind you asking - I'm 33, it would be nice to actually know some people before we get out there. My husband's contract starts on December 1st, he's coming back for Christmas and then we'll all be going out in January - not sure what date yet. I'll be going out for a few days in Dece,ber to meet up with my husband nd find us somewhere to live. I've been on the internet and there are so many to choose from !!! Do you have any children ? We have a son who's 13 and a daughter aged 3.

Write back soon, Nicola.

I am new as well :) But without car so far so i am looking for some people in JBR or Marina zone. If you live there we can definitely meet, I like going out and staying in for a chat in front of a nice glass.
I came from an intensive experience with house parties and i hope to repeat it here!

Excellent!! I would love to meet all you guys! could we arrange a time and place to meet? Dress code too as I don't want to turn up in flip flops if its a dress and heel place. Still don't know what to wear in various places yet; been embarassed in the past to get dressed up to the nines and everyone is in jeans and vice versa.
Thanks for replies was beginning to think I was asking in the wrong place. Don't think age is any consideration! I only put mine to give people an idea of who I was.

Hiya

Am flying put to Dubai tomorrow morning, can't wait, yes I have 2 boys but they are all grown up, aged 18 & 22 years.

My husband lives very close to the Mall of the Emirates so that's where we will be, it's really nice round there, so that's my suggestion.
My hubby coming home for Christmas too, on 22nd then we are going back together on 3rd Jan to start my new life with him out there, I really can't wait

well bedtime for me now as up early, will email you when I arrive in Dubai

take care
Paula

Do any of you ladies have kids ? I'm a bit worried about my son leaving all his mates behind. My daughter is only little so don't think she'll suffer too much.

Hi Paula

Not sure if you'll see this before you fly out but have a fab time. Let me know how you get on and let me know how hot it is - it's freezing here today !!!

Take care, Nicola
