I find the opportunities are better for me than back home in the Midwest. I have only dated one guy, but it would easy to date others — even much younger than me!Even 22-year-olds are interested in me, and I'm in my 30s.Within a rapidly developing architectural landscape, Qatar’s historic fortresses and palaces are a true stand-out feature.They embody the richness of ancient construction techniques, and our team have been working to restore and protect them.
Now in her fourth year in Qatar, she was happy to provide information about her experiences, and the inside scoop for, as the song goes, all the single ladies. I am an artist, so if something is happening in my creative identity, I tend to close myself up and try to hone in on it, and become pretty detached form everything else.[Housing is commonly provided for expatriate staff everywhere in the Middle East.] So I'm only with colleagues — you live with everyone you work with, which leaves you with not a lot of privacy. The quality of buildings in Qatar is not very good, but having so much space is really good.And I don't have to deal with anything (repairs, etc.)!It's not nature-based here, but there are cultural things to do. There are also always huge tennis matches, so people can attend these. There are more expat males employed here than females.Katara, the Cultural Village, has just opened, and they had a Latin event with dancers and films a couple of weekends ago. The difference in males/females in terms of numbers gives some advantage to a woman who is looking to be in the dating market. If I wanted to find something long-term, I could find someone who is successful, if that was my goal, but it isn't.(Well, I've been to Canada.) I currently work as an art teacher for high school students. The Qatari government keeps things under a fine check that no one is willing to cross, so I feel safe from being robbed.I feel safe leaving my purse in a restaurant, but at the same time, I think, "What am I thinking? I've never felt unsafe here, I am in an apartment provided by the school, in a building housing its single employees. In fact, I have as big a space as my friends who have bought a place back home.I don't want to forget how to budget and do things for myself. When I got here, I had anticipated it being a short-term thing, but now it's four years.I could probably have bought three cars now with the cost of renting!I am from a small town near a larger city, but it's still a very rural area.Where I come from the rural Midwest, social life is going to a smoky bar and talking of hunting.
