Maybe someone can direct you where the ladies these days tend to meet up. ed Oct 17, Hi It's not easy to meet people here in Alexandria but once you meet a friend then they introduce you to others! Lovely as they were they did have different interests and I ed them for some things and not others.
ed Oct 6, Anyways most women your age are already married. These are probably more along the lines of what you are looking for rather than the Portuguese Club which is very much like a local pub and not particularly condusive to meeting slightly more mature women resident Alexandria Alex. Expats most of that died down when I had my son!
When I was new in Alex's I found they had a lot of information of things like events etc. I am a Muslim-British female, and heaven forbid if I was to dating to date Egyptian women It would be nice to meet some, though.
The University Alexandria us in a separate building from the locals, we study in the 'foreign' section and most dating the other Brits here are also Muslim female Brits, but a lot of them come from very conservative family's and are not used to being social. Many of them are not very social and the one's that are, tend to stick in their groups, as they all live together and when I make suggestions to do expats, they politely refuse with whatever excuse they can muster.
There is a place I can say you could go along to but the thing is the place does sell the ole booze. The teachers at my university seem quite social-able and they have even given us their personal contact details etc, and I get the feeling that they want to social with their students outside class. Dear Arabian Nights You are welcome to come along to the following two groups and meet up with some of your fellow expats in Alexandria.
ed Jul 23, Hi all, I am coming up to nearly a month in Alexandria, Egypt and I have started my studies here at the University.
Look I can let my older sister she's 28 get in contact with you and maybe she can help, she's married with 2. It would be nice to meet locals or other who have things in common with me ed Oct 18, I always found it hard to build up a social network in Alex's. Plus, as I am older then most of them am a mature 29 year old student we don't really have much in common. That you also can find in Roushdy at the top of Kafu Abou running in a road behind the British Embassy.
Thanks for your message. I like the city, but as I am from London, it is not comparable and I now find myself feeling bored I am studying with a bunch of other British students at the University here - but a lot of them are younger then me and as they all came together as a group I am not part of they tend to stick together and although I have tried to be social with them, it doesn't always work out! ed Oct 11, Womens Groups in Alexandria Dear Arabian Nights You are welcome to come along to the following two groups and meet up with some of your fellow expats in Alexandria.

I don't know how you feel of going there! Would be nice to meet some people. This group also has an a couple of other social groups as an offshoot that meet to play Mahjong and Word Games. Hi marenostrum, thanks for your response. This place use to have Coffee Mornings on a Monday morning for women only but have since moved apparantly! We Alexandria Moslem members in both groups. It might only go as far as having coffee with your lecturer to discuss a dissertation or project, but that's it! No offical membership is needed. Cost is LE65 for morning tea. Unfortunately, I cannot makes the Monday morning coffee, because my classes at the University start dating then that and I do not finish until around 2 in the afternoon.
I was 30 when I landed there, 36 when I left and a lot of the foreigners I did expats had different interests than myself. I might try it, but seems pretty awkward, but they seem like perfectly nice people.

However, I am not really used to doing this, its not normal in the UK to socialize with your teacher! It's inside a lovely villa, nice gardens etc. I'd say to nip along on a Thursday evening and just speak to some people there to get more of a feel what is on offer nowadays in Alex's. Summers said:. But it isn't some bar as such it also a resturant and a coffee shop to.
Order from the menu. I guess ill check it out myself Thanks so much and I will certainly take your suggestions on board! Another place to nip up to for information is our British Council. I have lived here over 4 years and trying hard to find people more my own age. Thats sounds wonderful!

No harm trying! Status Not open for further replies. Many of them hate Egypt and are just waiting for time to pass until either xmas holidays or the end of the year - to fly back home. If you go along make sure you take your passport or even a copy of it for ID purposes to get in!
If you go to go up Kafu Abou hill but take the first turning right into a small road that runs behind a fruit shop your find it half way along. Most just go to Uni, home, do their homework, sleep and wait for the next day. It's called the Portaguese Club and it's in Roushdy. Thanks so much! I would love to meet some local women, who have a similar mindset i. Even if you were to use it for example to get further information in anything I or other Ex-pats in Alexs can tell you. Hi there I can understand where you are at having been a mature student for a period of time on my first visit here and finding my main interactions were dependent on other students who were here as a group.
Hope this helps and we will see you at one of the dating groups. Starbucks and Costas in san stefano is where i met ladies i know. These are generally people I wouldnt socialize with anyway back home, and its kind of a situation where we have to do stuff together, just because we are lumbered in the same centre for our studies and we dont have have much in common.

And I know this may sound a silly idea but maybe have a word with one of your teachers see if they can point you in some direction to help you too? All the best. Only foreigners go there. AWA has an average of 10 at the each meeting. I usually have Thursdays off though Thanks so much for the suggestions, and I appreciate it. It isn't ed posted but someone will point you right once your in that road. I even went to book fairs a few times etc just to do something a bit different than the malls etc! However all is not doomed I did make a good handful over the years but mainly Egyptians.
