I've never been to a city where it is easier to get laid (other than proper ibiza style holiday resorts).

So, as some of you know, I'm a Corporate Lawyer based in DIFC, and having moved from London for the new challenge (after a not much fun divorce) I am quite amazed at what I 've observed here.

It appears to me, and it may be that I go to the "wrong" places, eg Agency, Bar44, Barasti, 360, ShoCho etc. that the women are desperate men hungry beings that ask immediately what you do, when I tell them (I'm not going to lie) they're all over me and my male colleagues like a shot. That's just the ones wearing wedding rings, the single ones are a bit shyer.

So why is this? Are the women here just totally obsessed by the fact you've got a Porsche and a decent apartment, or is it that they love the Black Corporate Amex?

I find it all so fake, where do you folks recommend a normal guy like me should go, I mean I'm sick of making conversation about Chloe bags, Jimmy's shoes and how they totally rely on their maids - but don't work, to women who only appear to want a bit on the side. And don't even start me on the Air Hostesses!

Just somewhere where we can chat and have a laugh, nothing more, not yet anyway.

Just a cry for help, but I thought that if any group could help me it would be you people.

Thanks in advance

Pino


Just a thought but if you are so bothered by these ladies. ... then lie. When they ask what you do say you are a builder or a aircraft cleaner. I am sure you will soon get rid of them. Another point, dont tell them what you drive and that you have a good apartment.... AND DONT flash the black amex. Seems fairly simple to me.

Actually - although our friend is showing off a little, it is easy as snapping your fingers.

I managed to score a date once while driving down SRZ in a 20 year old convertible (although I am devastatingly handsome)
