Matchmaking in Dubai

05 Mar

Dating in the desert.

Dubai is renowned worldwide for being one of the most exciting, diverse, international cities on the planet and full of opportunity.

In 2013, 85% of the entire population of the UAE consisted of expats, most of whom were living in Dubai. It is therefore no surprise that the city is a true hotspot for people seeking long-lasting, fulfilling relationships to enjoy this vibrant city with.

A change in culture

Dubai isn’t always the easiest place to find love. For some expats, adapting to a more socially conservative dating scene can prove to be a challenge: there are cultural sensitivities which should of course be respected. This is where the expertise of our Dubai-based consultants (including me!) and international matchmakers comes in. I myself, Head of the MENA Region at Vida, have lived in Dubai for many years and know the region like the back of my hand.

Here at Vida, we are well versed in the dating etiquette present in Dubai, and have shaped our unique ethos to the nuanced dating scene of the city, ensuring that all our clients are matched only with those with whom they share common values and geographical plans – it’s no secret that the city can be quite transient.

The city is abuzz with single people, all of them hoping to meet their perfect match. Opportunities for work, creativity and amazing experiences make Dubai the perfect place to meet likeminded singletons. By observing some basic changes in etiquette (that many of us are used to), such as refraining from public displays of affection and being discreet on your search for a partner, you too can enjoy a fulfilling, active social life, having fun and finding companionship without worrying that you are offending anyone.
