Hi, Sunil here to talk about dating in Dubai and what comes along with it.

It is the law of the universe that men and women usually engage in dating to find a suitable companion in life.

Different countries have different practices, views, and preferences in dating.

Some countries are more liberal in their practices than others, while some are very traditional and conservative.

In some Asian countries such as China and India, a lot of people do not believe in dating and so arranged marriages are very common.

But no Kish and I were not arranged. Ours was a very western love story.

Dating in Dubai is more or less similar to dating practices in other places. What sets it apart is that it is a combination of modern dating behavior and the traditional Arab dating customs.

Because of the large number of expatriates living in Dubai, the city is really teaming up with people of different nationalities from all over the world, living in coexistence with the Arabs.

The Arab traditions in dating are more conservative, but the Western influence has greatly influenced the dating practices and outlook in Dubai. Some of the younger, more “Westernized” Arabs are now starting to date in similar ways.

As with other countries, Dubai has an assortment of bars and hangouts where men and women meet, as well as dating agencies and good websites where people can meet online. These modern dating practices are cleverly intertwined with the more traditional practices of the Middle East.

The expats living in Dubai, especially those from the western countries, go on dates to find companionship. Because of this, dating services and online dating are becoming more and more popular in the city. However, online dating is not that popular with the locals. But if you want to find someone special online in Dubai, one of the best sites is the Arab Lounge which keeps your information and profile extremely confidential.

Due to western influence, some Dubai men and women are only looking for casual dating and relationships. However, there are equally as many who are only looking for something serious and long-term. This clearly shows the diversity of people in Dubai and their preferences when it comes to dating.

It is hard to classify the dating in Dubai in general because of the different outlooks of people. Dubai men who are focused on their career only date moderately or only in their free time, which is usually on weekends. Some men, on the other hand, like to date anytime and spend a lot of time hanging out to meet Dubai women.

Dubai women are also quite varied. Some expat women are looking for permanent relationships while some girls in Dubai just like to date for fun. Men and women are really the same in many ways, aren’t they? Too bad it’s just us men who get the bad rep!



The locals, however, despite the strong western influence in dating, manage to keep their traditional lifestyle and dating preference. The parents have to be pleased after all don’t they? There is no doubt that the expats are the ones who practice more of the modern dating in Dubai.

Dubai is generally more liberated than any other Arab nation-state and that is why a lot of people from all over the world visit or live in this city. Coming to Dubai because of job and business opportunities, the Dubai population is a mix of different nationalities and cultures. The dating scene is no exception to this mix.

Why don’t you try visiting Dubai, hangout, and make friends with other people – locals and expats alike? Who knows, you might meet someone you get along with?
