Im here with my boyfriend but he works nearly all the time

Hi Heather

I've only been in Dubai 3 weeks and like you are looking for new friends. As yet I have no full time employment so i'm constanly looking for things to keep me occupied whilst my boyfriend is as work.
I'm living in Al Barsha (close to the mall of the Emirates). If you fancy meeting up or going out for a drink please email me at

Hey Heather!

I've been living in Dubai for quite a while. I was born and raised in Dublin, so Dubai is quite different to us all I guess. I live in Mirdif.. nice place it is. Well I can't say there's much to do here.. But you can make the best of what there's available. I happen to know almost every nook and crany of Dubai, so if you want anything, i'll be more than glad to help and we can get a drink sometime =)

PS: you can email me at

Take it easy then,
