Hi there! My name is Jishan, and I've been living in Dubai as an expat for the past 5 years. I'm quite introverted by nature but have a keen interest in reading, traveling, and delving into online searches to explore new ideas and information. Living in Dubai has been an enriching experience, allowing me to discover its vibrant culture and diverse attractions. I enjoy the quiet moments spent with a good book or planning my next adventure abroad. If you have any questions about Dubai, travel recommendations, or anything else, feel free to ask!

Hello everyone! I'm Anna Ovchinnikov from Saint Petersburg, Russia, and currently living in Dubai. I've been an expat for about 5 years. I enjoy exploring cultures, cooking international recipes, reading, and spending time with my family. I discovered ExpatWoman through a recommendation from a Russian friend in Dubai. A fun fact about me is that I can speak three languages fluently. Looking forward to connecting and sharing experiences with you all. Warm regards, Anna Ovchinnikov.

Hi I'm Trinette, I live in Downtown, I have been in Dubai for nearly 4 years - the big 50 is lurking and I wanted to connect with other women who are also going through this interesting phase of life - if you are of a similar age I would love to go for a coffee or something stronger.

Hey Everyone, Im Katie :) I have just moved to Dubai from the UK about 4 weeks ago now, with my Fiancé, for work. We are still adjusting to life abroad but slowly getting there day by day now... phew! Found a nice gym and can now successfully navigate the food shop each week... everything else can wait haha! I am 34 ( I think! I always forget my age!) a Female competitive bodybuilder and my partner and I own an online health and fitness coaching business. I am passionate about whole foods, positive mindsets and spotting all the beauttifulll little doggies everywhere I go! I think that pretty much sums me up in a few sentences! I lead a very simple life, filled with moments, memories and good training sessions :) Looking forward to making a few connections - and hopefully friends here - as Im realising that moving abroad can be a lovely time initially :)

As I had mentioned I am an Indian from Mumbai but have been living in the Gulf for 65 years. I very rarely go to Mumbai as my family lives in Bahrain. I was brought up in Bahrain and in 1975 after I married I moved to Al Ain. Have been living in Dubai since 1994 and living in Town Square Umm Sequim 3. I love to do crochet and take orders for the same. I was following ExpatWoman many years ago but somehow lost touch due to personal reasons.

Hi have lived abroad before - Hong Kong , Australia. Expect to be in Business Bay, enjoying Dubai very much - originally from UK. This is my first time living in UAE although I have visited several times. It seems much more liberal compared to when I first visited. Enjoying the cooler weather! Little time for hobbies at the moment - when we get settled I love to swim a lot . I found Expat woman in Google but we had something similar in HK - it looks a real mine of information and support. One fact about me -I hate breakfast in bed. All the best and many thanks, Kind regards Di

Hi, I'm Noor. Something of a Dubai veteran , I arrived in 1978, supposedly for a week or so, never left. I am married and have 2 grown daughters and a large blended family. I was raised in Scotland, and travelled to several countries before serendipity brought me here. This is now my home. Dubai has changed so much in the past 44 years, but still thriving and interestibg with an amazing multi cultural society. I still like to research more though.

Hello ladies! My name is Melissa and I'm a 45-year-old American currently living in Amsterdam but considering a relocation to Dubai or Abu Dhabi. I moved to Europe 2 1/2 years ago on my own. My interests include connecting with people, travel, food (everything from home cooked to Michelin starred), wine, luxury, cosmetics, shopping. I currently work for myself in Amsterdam providing social connection services in the form of rebuilding your social circle as an adult as well as professional matchmaking. I have a background in psychology, have built 2 businesses (my current and also a gourmet food product) but miss the structure, colleagues, and energy of the corporate world so am looking to relocate to Dubai or Abu Dhabi to get back into it! I created and run an Amsterdam group for women with over 1,000 members and found it has been invaluable so searched for something similar and found ExpatWomen!
