Yes another newbie

Postby Steve63 » Wed, 01 Oct 2008 11:54 am

Hi all!
I am another newbie expat in Singapore..... I am a 45 year old American male now living here and looking to meet people and learn the ropes.

I have noticed most of the people posting for new friends and acquaintances are much younger... so I thought I'd post for the over 35 crowd.

I am up for most anything and don't know the singles (or otherwise ) landscape here.
Anyway glad to meet you and looking forward to hearing from you!

Be well
Steve

Welcome to Singapore! It's a great place to be.

Feel free to join WNDC, FNDC, or any other socials that catches your fancy. Most people who attend are friendly and sociable, ranging in age from early twenties to way past 40 :wink: . . . singles as well as couples . . .

If you let it be known that you are single, then be prepared to be invited to parties, parties and more parties
\:D/

Just get out there and circulate . . .

Cheers

Steve, welcome to Singabore!

Check out the link on SMS's posts. (Thanks SMS) My wife and I have found the information from these links very useful over the past year.

Like the previous posts say, if you're single guy you'll have plenty to do.

Hi Pakjohn and SMS,

Thank you for the help! I'll print the page as it is a very handy reference material, esp for the phone numbers!

Regards,

Moto
