Dubai’s dating scene is a unique blend of characters – travellers, transiters, tricksters, and a few good people.
But there are some characters that just keep popping up, online, in clubs and bars, in stories and everywhere in between.
Here are just a few.
1. Dubai Douchebags
We’ve already discussed these lads in length, and they’re frequently seen at Pier 7 and Barasti, wearing polos and no socks, missing leg day and a bit too tanned.
2. Carousel lads
You know the ones, they’ve been around. They’ve been on dates with all your friends (or they are your friends and have been on dates with everyone possible on dating apps). They know everyone, they’ve dated everyone and they’ll try it on anyone.
3. Stopover studs
They’re at Dubai Airport on their location settings, or they’re just here for a stop-over, and are basically looking for a free tour guide.
No thank you very much.
4. The Married Morons
They’re on tinder, they’re out pushing their groins up against you in the clubs, all the while wearing a wedding ring.
Mate, go home to your wife.
5. The Needy Nelsons
IF you can relate, you definitely need to come along to the Lovin Dubai Lock and Key party on October 5, to find someone way better than all these guys.
