Love & the City (Dubai)
Hello friends, fellow bloggers and Brides-to-be,
It was 4 years ago when I met my Fiancée in Dubai. I had been living in Dubai for a year already, and my first Christmas as an expat, away from my family back in the UK was approaching. To ease the loneliness of such a family orientated occasion, myself and another expat friend of mine in Dubai decided to rally together all the ‘Dubai Orphans’ (as we affectionately named ourselves) together to celebrate Christmas lunch.
I was in charge of feeding the hungry troops, my friend hosted in his apartment and other friends contributed by bringing deserts, etc. A work colleague of mine who was joining us, asked if she could bring along her best friend who was holidaying in Dubai for a few weeks, of course I obliged “the more the merrier”.
Anyhow, fast forward, in walked the sweetest man, I had ever seen. Not sure if it was ‘instant attraction’, but from the moment we shook hands we were inseparable all evening, we teamed up and beat everyone at all the cheesy board games post lunch, giggled away to ourselves sharing silly jokes much to the annoyance of our friends, and simply ‘Hit it off’. The rest is history, almost four years after we met, we are now engaged to be married and can’t wait to start the next chapter of our life’s together.
How did you and your fiancée meet? Feel free to share your story with me.
Here is a picture captured by a friend, taken 3 hours after my fiancée and I first met, says it all really!
Signing off for now….
