My name is Mike and I'm due to move to Shanghai tomorrow (and in all honesty that terrifies me) I'm moving for work reasons and, until I get on my feet out here, I will be leaving my partner and our 6 year old daughter back in the UK.
I'm looking to make new friends and get to know Shanghai. I'm very interested in the culture and would love to learn Mandarin although I can imagine that would take some time.
A little about myself, I'm 33 and a pad brat (for those who don't know, that means my father was in the army when I was a kid) so I suppose that's why I'm almost used to the move. I love pretty much all music, sports (mainly football and for my sins I am a Sunderland fan) and I'm a bit of a geek/nerd too as I do enjoy my online gaming from time to time.
As it says in the title, I'm looking to meet new people and make new friends who can hopefully show me around Shanghai and help me get used to the place. I will be living near South Huangpi Road station (apparently 5 mins away from this) so if you fancy getting together some time or even just helping me out then please feel free to message me.
