Living Abroad and Looking for Love

Written by on December 4, 2012 in Relationships - No comments | Print this page


Dating or simply getting to be in a strong relationship is something that many of us find hard to achieve. I’m sure we all know plenty of people who will agree that life can be boring if you are all alone! This is especially so if you are living in a foreign country where you are among the minority.

Problems Immigrants Face When Dating in the UK

The United Kingdom is a great place to be living in but for many immigrants it can really pose a lot of challenges in your social life. This is especially true of many recent immigrants to the UK who live in upscale residential areas alongside some of the wealthiest people in the country; professionals such as doctors and lawyers that come to the UK to work may then find themselves feeling somewhat lost, despite the UK being a notoriously diverse and multicultural place.

These are communities where not many immigrants may be living. Skilled immigrants that come to the UK and work in well-paid professional capacities have the financial ability to own prestigious homes in upscale neighbourhoods, but find that there may not be very many other immigrants in these areas. Dating here may be out of the question for many people who are not looking to date people from other communities. Many people may then become lonely and long for the day when they are able to interact with people with whom they have something in common with culturally.

What’s the Solution?

There is of course, speed dating and personal ads where you can specify what you are looking for, but in the modern age it’s online dating that seems to be proving the most effective for anyone looking for love. There are websites that cater for whatever you’re looking for: gay and lesbian sites, Christian, Hindu, Sikh, Muslim and Jewish sites, and even sites for cat and dog lovers!

Dating sites will allow you to customize your profile so you will be matched up with people that suit your needs totally. Are you a vegetarian who loves reading books and doesn’t like to drink? Find someone who shares your interests rather than trawling through endless profiles of people that don’t like reading and love to go out clubbing!

Browsing is usually anonymous, meaning you don’t have to see who is looking at you or whose profile you choose to look at. Signing up is easy; just upload a couple of pictures, say a few words about the kind of person you are and the things you’re interested in and you’re good to go.
