Default AGED 20 AND MOVING TO DUBAI

Hi Guys and girls, I’m luke and I’m new to the forum. I’m basically moving over to Dubai at the age of 20 years old for my job which is in Aeronautical spare parts and sales and I was just wondering if there are many young 20s about in Dubai and how they find living there. Baring in mind I can’t drink till I’m 21 so what would be the best ways for me to socialise outside of drinking. I will be renting a shared apartment so I hope that will be one way of getting to know people.
Many thanks
Luke

If I were you I'd definitely still be out drinking.

Aside from that, there are loads in their 20's here. I moved just after my 23rd birthday and never found it hard finding people to socialise with.
Will there be people your age at your work? That's the best way....apart from if you know anyone else out here already?
REmember those you meet to start with might not be the ones you're friends with years later.
Try joining a sports team or society?
Definitely be good through a shared apartment.

Just be open minded and give shit a go. Have fun, save some cash for rainy days and panic money and you'll be set.

never get emotionally involved with a prostitute.

unfortunately I’ll be the youngest by a fair amount but that’s not a problem and no will be going out there knowing no one. yes I was looking into shared apartments and I love sports so feel like that will help a lot. Thank you for the advice, I cannot wait to get out there, I will be living in the marina so feel like that will be a great place to meet lots of people

Sounds like that was a painful experience.
