1. Yes if you leave your home & make an effort.
2. How do you 'party' right now?
3. There are numerous threads and even a sticky about this.
4. AFFECT you. How would we know as we know nothing about you?
5. Adopt yourself? You mean adapt to the place? That depends on you. It's easy for some, harder for others.

Suggest you do some research.

I left Dubai last year after 8 years, now in Portugal and I cannot understand how I spent 8 years in that place to be honest. It got worse the longer I stayed.

But I know some people who love it. Everyone is different, it depends on you.

Personally if you're young and want a place with opportunities and a fun life, go to the far east - china or taiwan. They like a drink too, and you can socialize with locals, including the girls, without getting deported or executed.

I answered your questions - which is more than most have done - but they are so very vague that it's impossible to be more precise.

Hi Seb,

[QUOTE]Hi all i am at the moment working in UK but they offered me a position to move to Dubai and i am bit worried and there are:
1- will i meet people there and i have lots of friends? if you put the effort in to go out and meet people then yes you meet people and build strong friendships- you have to meet a lot of people to build true friendships- I am sure all your current friends weren't met overnight so you have to meet as many as possible to meet the people you click with
2- will i be able to party like i do in UK?depends how you party- if it involves sticking a gramme up your nose everynight not so much, if you want to go out have a few drinks, bit of a shuffle on the dancefloor then yes and then some
3- cost of living? comparable to London living- all depends how you blow your money
4- would the culture effect me?yes in the fact that you need to be respectful to living in a strict muslim country, be discrete and you'll be fine, if you want the same life you currently have then stay there.
5- how hard is to adopt myself to the place?I found it hard and I still have a love hate relationship with the place, some love it immediately, some hate it, it really comes down to you and what you want from life as it's different for everyone
/QUOTE]

At the end of the day what have you got to lose? Take a chance I say as you never know- and if you hate it home hasnt gone anywhere.

KC
