Dating Ex-Patriates: Ex-Pats Socialize

You have to remember that all of these people who are ex-patriates usually hang out together.

Let’s say that you met someone in your office. This is not the person who is necessarily for you. Maybe this person is a go-between.

Let’s say this person is hosting a party at his or her house. You go to the party. You want to meet other people that they’re friends with.

Friends of friends are always good prospects. You already have something in common.

You can guarantee that this person is reliable because you know that your friend is reliable. Friends usually have the same values.


Dating Ex-Patriates: Visit Cultural Events

You can also look at different activities at the embassies. They usually have activities for locals. They are trying to help other people from their country. They usually host different events.

If you’re specifically looking for a particular country then you can focus on that.


Dating Ex-Patriates: Their Cultural Habits

Asians like eating. Let’s say that you go to an Indian trip. Usually, there are a lot of Indian restaurants attached to each other, for example in Chicago.

If you’re interested in Chinese then you go to a Chinatown area. There are areas with different backgrounds.

The tendency is to be together with other people in their culture and enjoy whatever their lifestyle was where they lived.
