There are not so many working expats in a mid twenties (mostly students in early to mid twenties). Most of the expats are in early 30s and up (those who came with the families)...

and also, sad fact: the numbers of non-asian expat ladies are really small.

You can meet plenty of white youngsters in Insomnia on wed nite, most of them are students who are coming for couple of months and doing internership here.

The other thing need to add: there are plenty of weird people on the forum (the stories about lovely local guy who was stalking foreign ladies on the forum are still alive :roll: ). So be aware when you arrange one-to-one meet-ups with people who send you e-mails. They may be harmless, but the experience can be quiet dissapointing

There will be a few that are coming up here from down under (gonna be working in what I'm doing) so there should be a few hanging around.
I know I met a few expats that are about the same age as me at FNDC.

There are more early 20s xpats than meets the eye. I live with 2 others and work with about a dozen of us. Its getting popular to take a foreign job now, right out of college, and see a bit of the world wile you can! I cant say we frequent a specific place, but if your interested in meeting up during an outing, drop a line.
Surely, the long way's easier, but it's longer.

Sure you are nice, i wish everyone could be like you...
Ladies, pls make sure you meet that guy while you are in Singapore. :kiss:
But weird people still exist and disturb this forum (and it's users) :evil: Need to add that Moderators of this forum (especially some particular species :wink: ) are doing a great job and help to detect some crazy people

Yes, there are more and more youngsters are coming now, BUT the numbers are still small....

There are always people in 30-s and even in 40-s who party hard! So it's not necessarily to look only for youngsters. Most of my friends here are 10-15 yrs older than me and feel very comfortable with them

So if you find them...let me know!!!!!
