Plus, how on earth are you supposed to meet eligible bachelors in Kuwait – and by eligible I mean NOT the ones that follow you through Avenues, try and get your attention whilst driving dangerously or beep their horns as they drive past you when you’re trying to cross the street. So, moving to Kuwait has meant embracing online dating – something I wasn’t a fan of in London. The app pulls the pictures from your Facebook profile and it seems many users in Kuwait fail to review these and make any changes.
In fact, I’m even less of a fan now but needs must. Why else would there be 100s of profiles featuring men with their brides or profiles pictures that are of their children?!
So I decided to do some research and the first thing I did was google “tinder kuwait” which landed me on an extremely entertaining local blog called Single in the Shires.
The blog is about the dating adventures of a single British girl living in Kuwait and since she was a Tinder user, I decided to contact her and ask her if she’d be willing to write the review instead.
Amongst other services, Expatica offers the best dating site for Expats in Kuwait since 2012.I could reel off my disastrous encounters thanks to Tinder but have chosen to protect the not-so-innocent. You see, for all my cynicism I am still hopeful that one day I’ll swipe right and meet a normal, well-adjusted guy that doesn’t want to show me the inside of his pants on Whatsapp after three messages. Well in the absence of an alternative then I suppose I would – as long as you don’t take it too seriously.Remember; online you can be whoever you want to be.She nicely accepted and you can check it out below: Swipe Right When Mark asked me to guest blog for him I was delighted. And moving to Kuwait certainly hasn’t helped change matters. Gone are my days of meeting guys in nightclubs and bars.Then I realized that I had to write about my shameful love life for the Kuwait blogosphere to digest. First date nerves are no longer steadied with a couple of wines. And, for a change, I can remember every single disastrous detail the next day (not always a good idea). Yes it’s shallow but it’s more fun than reading dating profiles that have been embellished beyond belief (ie the guy who said he was over 6 foot and was shorter than me on the date – and I’m 5 foot 7).
