Expat M/F ratio in Dubai?

Hi

Im considering an offer to move to Dubai. But Im single and a bloke and don't necessarily want to go somewhere where there are 10 guys for every girl (Ive lived in places like that).

So whats the M/F ratio for expats? Roughly equal? Or heavily skewed? (23 - 35 age bracket)

Thanks!

Boomtown, On a serious note, Dubai does have very good nightlife, with lots of girls, it just depends on what you want (as I said earlier). However, you will be in a lot of competition from well tanned and slick back haired guys who drive BMW's with their tops down and huge muscular arms resting on...

I work hard because if I stopped moving forward I would die on the inside - I need to have a dream to chase and when I get there I move onto the next dream. Im never happy unless Im chasing a dream. Fortunately I have never gotten stuck yet.

*Threadjack warning*

I just wanted to say that you guys seem like such a bloody nice group of people I feel a hell of a lot more comfortable about my own planning to move to Dubai.

Cheers

Suggestion: go to a reputable recruitment agency in your own country and set up a job (including a living allowance if possible) before you go there.

My brother is a gymnast. He has been trained by Russian coaches every day for the past 14 years. They are very hard working, dedicated and good people. Some of the best people I know.

air pollution?

Hi guys Im currently contemplating a move to Dubai. I have previously lived as an expat in Shanghai, China but the air pollution drove me crazy. It was so bad that you could never see a star in the sky at night time and only the sky directly above your head was blue - the rest was brown. Every photo...

Its the power of free markets - the US was the first to harness capitalism properly and it got a massive head start. Look at the economies around the world and the ones with the least restrictions are the strongest. Don't think manufacturing is going to help China that much more - they are pretty cl...

Having a maid can create real problems for children.

I have seen children that are 6 years old but have the motor skills of a 3 year old because the maids do everything for them.

These are people that will struggle when they get out into the real world.

Hmmm. Turbo Cayennes are one of the best luxury cars in my book and make good power but they are very heavy which means they are not exactly the fastest car on the road. And in the desert - I would rather a good solid Landcruiser everytime. Too much to break on the Cayenne. For me they are too much ...

It sounds like privacy glass which is opaque unless you run a current through it. Highly illegal and rather impractical when you park and your licence plates are frosted (unless its draining your battery).

Muscat v Dubai: who will win!?

We all know Godzilla v King Kong, Chocolate v Coffee, Dog v Cat, Sleep v Fun, Paris Hilton v Good Taste and Decency.

But I want to know whether you guys think Dubai or Muscat is better and why.

I will start with 1 point for Muscat - cheaper rent!

Let me put it this way. You are driving a 4x4 offroad at modest pace - say 40 kmh. You hit a solid obstacle square on that is 30 cm high. If you have independent front suspension both front wheels will pop up in the air but your chassis will barely lift and you will rip the front diff off into the s...
