I recently moved to Dubai. I am from the US. I lived in Jeddah Saudi Arabia previously and they had several woman's groups meetings you could attend to meet people. I am wondering if anybody could share lunch groups/meetings where I would be able to meet some people. Appreciate any info you can offer me.

Welcome to Dubai arabianghosts2011. You may try www.meetup.com I've seen lots of women groups over there. Normally they do weekly meetups. Good luck

There is an expat woman website here where they have coffee mornings etc. we are not allowed to give the url address here. So just google it.

Hey Arabian Ghosts

Welcome to Dubai, have been a month so in same predicament. Like to meet people etc so if you want to meet for coffee some time can arrange something. Have joined Meet Up too, not too bad. Been to some events and gradually getting to know people

Word of advice: change your privacy settings when you join otherwise can get emails from blokes wanting to be your 'friend' :p

There are a couple of expat women websites that have links to groups and websites. Sorry to be so oblique, but I'm not really clear about privacy rules here.

For what its worth, I'm in the same situation. Best of luck.

Do you only meet during the day?

I wish there were women groups that catered for working women but the majority I have come across here hold events during working hours so I can't attend :(

Seems like there are a few of us interested - how about a dinner / coffee so we can get to know each better?

Weekends are best for me at the moment as I'm out of Dubai during the week.

Any other suggestions ?

Hi 5herry, I also find this very frustrating. I am happy to meet for dinner one time. Let me know what date you're thinking of :)

I already got plans for 23rd March but I would be in for 30th March :) What's the plan?!

I also work all day and Fridays, so I usually can't join the ladies breakfast, or brunch or whatever they do during the day....
