I'm 172cm tall, athletic body type, black african hair styled, love singing, like to wear good Hi I have not much to say until the right guy comes along.
I am working full-time and working on my Master's, so right now I'm doing more studying and in-house work, but I do get out nights and evenings. I go back to the United States, and I forget some of my defense mechanisms.
When you go out as a single woman, it's hard to not be approached by a man. If you are a single who can get used to it and just shrug it off, fine.
If you want it to lead to other opportunities, it's not difficult.
(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.
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.
It's easy to isolate oneself, and I've seen people do it, but I think it's a depressing place to be alone and isolated — more so than back home.
And there are the standard pastimes of movies, shopping, dinner.
But I often need the inspiration of my fellow humans, as well.
