am afraid that it is hard to make friends in dubai,everybody is busy,life is expensive ,people are there to work and make money,most of the time is spent in the day job and the transportation...your best bet is if you have 2 days off u will have better chances...

best of luck...

Excuse me?!

Very cynical. Well I am a regular visitor and moving to Dubai in the new year and I know thats not the case.

Well done for giving someone a convidence boost. Perhaps in future dont bother if your comments are negative? It may be a reflection on your personal lifestyle, dont tarnish the expected-youthful-exciting-friend-making experience of Dubai with your brush.

Relocating in January too!

Hi Sarah and Harry,

I'm not sure if you already live in Dubai Harry, sorry it wasn't clear. But i am also relocating the beginning of January Sarah. Looking to make friends.. brittish expats who are going through the similar thing. Been to Dubai many times it will already feel a bit like home but theres nothing like trying to rebuild your social circle, and feel a bit more welcome in a new city.

:)

Don't worry about moving to Dubai. My experience is that it is much easier to make new friends here than it is in Europe. Many people are new too and don't have the family commitments as they have back home.

It is many times one of the first topics in a conversation: 'where do you come from and how long have you been in Dubai'.

Welcome to Dubai & enjoy!!

Hi .... Looking for friends in Dubai!

Hi i am 31 and single ! I have been here ( Dubai) for almost ten months now and yet to make friends ... whom i can hang out with . The few i do are the folks who work with me ( TV Channel). It's time i have friends outside the media zone. Anyone with a cool head, and an aptitude for wit is welcome !!
