JOBS AND WOMEN OF DUBAI May 20, 2005
Hi everyone,

I'm a 21-year-old white male, that's planning to move to Dubai.
I currently live in suburbs of Los Angeles in California, and I've been working in the IT industry since I was 18.

So hopefully, having 3 years of experience in the field, I'll be able to find a job in Dubai! :D

So far, I've only signed up with jobsindubai.com as my recruitment agency. Are there any other good agencies out there that you'd recommend? :help:



And on the totally different note.

I have an Arabic friend, who says that there are no good-looking women in Dubai, with some rare rare exceptions. He says that majority of them work in hotels and rarely leave the premises, so unless you're drinking at some hotel, you're screwed.
He says that if I want to meet some good-looking women, I need to
go to Beirut and party there over the weekend. But come on now, spending 300$ on ariline tickets just to meet some hotties isn't the way I invisioned 21st century Arabia! :shock:

So please let me know what the situation is really like over there ! :blob5:


Thanks a lot in advance!

The best looking girls in the arab world are in Lebanon and in Morocco. However, your friend is incorrect in saying that there are no good looking girls in Dubai. There are so many expats from Lebanon and Morocco there so go figure. Plus there are some khaleeji girls that are stunning beleive it or not...

Sniper, the good looking girls in Canada are usually the immigrant ones from Mediterranean countries (arab and south euro).

Depends on what your idea of good looking is. I don't really find pasty white girls or blonds for that matter too appealing. I like a bit of color.

yeah, i agree. the general consensus is that your friend is talking crap! as a matter of fact you see more exposed flesh in dubai than you would see in most middle-eastern countries!

on the job note. take my advice get one before you come out here. the it industry is VERY over subscribed, plenty of cheap, well educated and egar to please people out here! you will realy have to be something special to stand out!

The place attracts people in thier droves... all looking for the gold paving the streets, unfortunately when they get here they can't see the gold as the street is covered with other people also looking for it!

you can also try www.clarendonpaker.com and regsiter on line.

THe women here are all beautiful!! One problem is getting them to talk to you. The men seem to treat all women like objects(which is cool, but dont let the chick know!) in public, so they have a bad impression of cats they meet on the street. Of course there are the whores, which is cool if you wanna get straight to the point. Tell them that in the US, we usually get a test run first before we pay. It worked for me on a few simple-minded thicky thicks!!!

Dubai is filled with gorgeous girls from all over the world! Think your friend must have a specific taste in women. Personally from what I've seen of Lebanese women they have plastic surgery as soon as humanly possible, and the make-up is slapped on with a trowl and I really don't know who finds that whole light lipstick with dark lip liner thing attractive, most of my male friends would run a mile in the other direction.

But I supposed it depends what you find attractive.

As Aqua would sing in Barbie Girl:

'Life in plastic, it's fantastic!'

And I can't believe I just admitted to knowing the lyrics to that song :oops:

Guys, there are great looking women in every country. When I was in the Deira City Centre I saw many beautiful women (the ones that weren't covering their faces that is).

In Canada I think there are many beautiful women because they come from all over the world, and some of the mixed parents make for gorgeous offspring. Quebecois women are very beautiful actually.

Liban, what's your beef with "pasty skin"! I'm dark haired and dark eyed with pasty skin, and I'm not terrible to look at :twisted:

:lol:

This is really random, but could you post some pictures of the type of women your talking about? I am bi-racial and have never fit in where I live in America. I have been told I look greek and some other things :roll: ....well thanks I hope I would blend in better in Dubai, im sure I will feel at home.

Glonus, im from so cal too. you need to open up your mind to what you think is beautiful...b/c I know what your perception of beauty is (out here). I dont think the import bleach to dubai anyway. :P jk

Well it makes me laugh when people moan about pale skin, seeing as there are so many bleaching products available here, it's a joke. Many pale skinned people tan and fake tan like crazy, whilst many people with darker complexions use all the lightening products, which surely can't be good for the skin.

It's nuts!

Can't we just be happy the colour we are? I'm just about as pale as you can get, with loads of freckles but so what.

Friends actually joke that they have to use sunglasses around me as I reflect the light - Doh! But tanning is not my thing.

Best of both worlds - not too fair, not too dark... yellowish and easy to tan.

Choco, I'm the same way - tanning isn't my thing at all. In fact, I burn after about 15 minutes, so am always slathered in sunscreen. Shoe-leather skin and cancer aren't really cool, so I'll just be happy with my pale skin.
