Finding the right partner is becoming increasingly challenging. Their time in Dubai is considered as a transit phase until they move on to the next destination or go back to their countries. This instability or uncertainty about the next move makes that bunch of people restless and unable to keep a healthy and long-lasting relationship. So, if you fall for someone who is in a "transit phase," either destroy their passport or be ready to smuggle yourself inside their travel bag not in a creepy way though. If you fall in love with another expat in Dubai and ask them about their background, the only story you will get is their "own version" of the story. There is no neighbor to ask, no "mokhtar el hare" to consult and no close family members to interrogate.

Dubai Dating Website for Locals Expats and Overseas Singles
In a local survey carried out in Dubai, it has been found that single expats in Dubai look for girls to have a good time. Over the last few years, the availability of single girls for relationship and dating has increased significantly. Although Arab traditions in dating land towards the conservative side, it is quite easy for single expats to find a girl for romantic dating. Dating practices are mostly the same as those in other countries.
Do people actually date in Dubai? I am constantly asked this question by curious visitors, readers and friends back home. Clouded by Orientalist dreams or images spoon fed by Western media, they are perhaps imagining an up-tight city in which mixing between the sexes is banned. Although we live in an Islamic culture, it is quite common to see people of all ages, gender, and background mixing freely at restaurants, sidewalk shisha joints, and the beach. As a newly married couple with a big table, my husband and I feed a lot of single friends dinner, and are inevitably then treated to a dirge regarding the futility of finding true love in such a transient place.
