30yo British Male - Looking to meet new people

Post by Definitely Maybe » Sun, 04 Mar 2012 1:48 am

I just arrived in Singapore on a 2 year Employment Pass - interested in meeting more expats and locals for nights out etc.

Interested in music, sport, socialising and women (might as well be honest!).

Would like to get to know areas like clarke quay etc better so if there are any meet-ups planned I might be interested - not the kind of place to go alone.

I just turned 30 so I hope I can get off with posting this in the 20's section....

Thanks

Haha - nah, Im not a Manc but I am a fan of Oasis.

I live in the west, near pioneer MRT...miles away from most things.

Cant say Im a tennis fan im afraid but Im into football.
I go running and swimming and do a bit of weights (nothing major).

Tbh, im just looking to see if there are any other like-minded expats of a similiar age who are up for having a laugh at the weekend - bit of a drink, round a few bars, try a few different places, mingle etc.

Alot of the expats I meet just want to go to to Orchard Towers and whilst I think its a funny place and had some good nights there I also think Singapore has more to offer.

I went for a stroll round Clarke Quay one night and thought it might be a pretty good place if there was a group of people together.
Id also like to get to know places like 'Zouk', Duxton/Tanjong Pagar etc.

Hi

I am 29 and also a Brit and would be keen to meet for a drink. Have been here for 3 months. I am going to try the WNDC this Wednesday if you fancy it.

Also internations and meetups are good ways to meet other expats.

Cheers
Tom

It's a way of preventing spammers of just registering and sending you spam PMs...or delusional men from messaging single females.

But it isn't really a strong deterrent for the second point. They can post 5 random posts, and then they are free to work there charm.....

No, they're not hard to spot. Reckon most only get to rack up max 3-4 inane posts before being shown a yellow card.
