Hi!
Do you live in a compound? They have usually activities for the wives.
If not, maybe you can meet some wives of your husbands colleagues at work?
It can be a bit daunting in Saudi in the beginning, but it gets better with time!
Also you can try this www.sainsaudi.co.za

They are already living in Saudi, in all kinds of places.
Give it a try,good luck!

i do live in a compound but its a small compound and with mainly families from other Arab countries...there doesnt seem to be much activity happening and people seem to keep to themselves plus most people seem to have kids and i have none ....

most of my husbands colleagues are not here with families and if they are their wives are much older than i am and again are from Arab countries so are pretty religious etc

maybe if i was working i would make friends but i am not working at the mo and dont plan to work here for a while yet and just not looking fwd to a lonely existance

A bored housewife in Saudi Arabia?

There is a special personalised service for people in your situation. What you do is wait till your husband is away on business, then send a PM to "The Dean" who comes round to provide counselling and companionship facilities.

If you are planning to get across to Bahrain, send a PM to B Geezer first, as he is also a registered provider of this service.

As you are a new client, the usual arrangement and booking fees will be waived.

Good luck, and I look forward to hearing from you.

Good luck with your new life, I hope things improve for you. I recently moved to Dubai so know how difficult it can be in a new environment.....Do yourself a favour and keep posting on this website, and the more you do, the more appealing being on your own becomes, trust me I know !!!
