Hi all,

I have been in Dubai for 2 months and I am enjoying it. The problem is that I have only met one person I would consider a friend. I am from the south of England and I am 24. i like going out to places like Barasti, Cirq du souir on the weekend, but the rest of the time I just sit at home or go to the gym. I know my friend here is in the same position. we would both like to meet more people. were both managers in hospitality so that doesn't help either.

Hope you guys can help?

thanks

I think you need to broaden your horizons with where you go out - where you're currently going you're only going to meet drunkards and pretentious morons! (gross generalisation, but there you go lol).

Why not get involved with some sports groups? Check out Duplays. Look for different hobbies etc and things to do.

It's not always easy to meet genuine people here and it does take time, you go through superficial circles alot before you find people that stick.
