Looking for any friends, male or female

I'm new in Dubai, I'm 29 years old from Ireland and I'm living in IMPZ (International Media Production Zone)... this is an isolated area on emirates road... which makes it harder to go out and have fun when you have no friends at all.

I would like to meet any friends from IMPZ, Motor City, Green Community, Barsha... or any close by area... so we can spend some time and go out together...

Hi Katie,

IPMZ is a dead zone, I really wonder how you survive there.

I hope you have made enough new friends to keep you company and  take you around town?

Anyway, let me know you fancy to have a chat-mate (bbm).  You can add me up on: 29558E07, if you use a Blackberry.

I live in Discovery Gardens and not in IPMZ:)

In the same boat, just got here from Kildare and trying to settle in and find some mates. I'm into music, photography, fun outdoor stuff and going out. I'm 27, fairly easy going and all the rest...:).  I'm working in Internet city, if your close by and fancy a coffee drop me a line.

Hi everyone,

I see a very active forum over here. I am from holland 20 years old. Staying in dubai for 4 months. I would like to meet new people.
