Dating Beyond Borders
Expatriate dating brings people of the same nationality together and sometimes even those who merely speak the same language or have similar cultures. In a new country, it is far easier to mix in with people who come from a similar background, than to make friends with people who do not share the same language.
One of the ways to form such a community is to join a personals website, let people know you are an expatriate at that locale and would be interested in getting to know other expatriates in the area. As an article by just such an expatriate illustrates, this could be a process to which you might need to carry a sense of adventure and a spot of patience, but is likely to be eventually rewarding in the end.
Of course, on any dating service, there would be those that lie about their age or contact you with proposals you may not agree with. Other singles might want a relationship where you do not and make you feel that you are complicating your life by setting up a profile on a dating website. But it is possible to ignore these negatives. There is always the overwhelming positive of being able to meet and connect with just the sort of person you had been hoping for.
Exchanging ideas on various topics, going out for various outdoor activities or having meals together can be a great way to pass the time in a country where you are an absolute stranger. Owing to the fact that all expatriates would be more or less unfamiliar with the country, there are bound to be a few fiasco where people lose their way or cannot find a particular location. But if approached with a spirit of fun and adventure, this becomes a minor difficulty.
As long as you know exactly what you want out of your interactions with potential dates or companions, chances are high that you might find someone who will transform your lonely expatriate experience into a fulfilling and memorable one.
