New to forum, feeling a bit lonely in Malta

Hi there. I'm new around the forum, not Malta. A bit about me: well, I moved to Malta a little over 8 years just after turning 30. It's been the best decision I have ever made.

Unfortunately, I just can't seem to meet anyone that I can become friends with. I have a good job, had plenty of acquaintances and colleagues over the years but I'd like an actual mate. Someone just to chat to, drink with, laugh with, pop out for a coffee with, watch Wales in the 6 Naitions at the pub 😊

I have tried various expats meet ups and I can understand how they are great for some people but they just made me feel really uncomfortable. Being in a room with a load of strangers and trying to 'mingle'. It's just not me. I spend the night feeling like a lemon and I end up drinking too much to compensate and then make a fool of myself.

Plus, every event seems to be in Sliema/Gzira/St Julians which for me living in Zabbar and not having a car, ends up being a very expensive night out because of the taxis home.

Is there anyone down south that fancies meeting up for a coffee/drink? Marsascala-ish area

I'm quite easy going, love a bit of sci-fi, not taking things too seriously and just relaxing and having a laugh.

Hi Kat Im 35 live in Marsascala with my husband and kids we just moved from Edinburgh last month! I'd love to meet up, Missing my friends back home already :-) drop me a private message? I'm just heading to the Scotland game just now x

I'm a Welshman (though lived in Brazil for the past 12 years) heading to Malta at the end of year, will be good to get a beer with someone!

Let us know when you arrive 😊

I'm up for a beer when you arrive too Dorieus :)

Hi All,

I moved to Zabbar in October and have found it quite difficult to meet people this end of the island. We have been here 2/3 years now but only down here since Oct. If anyone wants to meet up for drinks sometime let me know. Me and my partner are up for drinks in Marsaskala
