Dating in Dubai with with @kai_wellbeing
We chat with Kai, native Hawaiian and corporate wellbeing consultant, on how she met her now fiancé in the wild in Dubai! Kai sought spiritual guides on how and when to end her previous on again/off again long distance relationship to open herself up to her now partner. Why you should still ‘date yourself’ whilst being in a relationship and what does a healthy, happy relationship look like to Kai? We also hear her incredible whirlwind romance around the world, commitment phobia, and her engagement story. My favorite part of the episode is the trials and tribulations of her relationship through covid and how couples therapy has been a key turning point to the success of her relationship! PLUS how to pick the perfect couples therapist for both parties in the relationship and when to seek this help.
Dating in Dubai with Charlie
We chat with one of my besties in Dubai and her experience dating as a 28 year-old in Dubai, London, and Australia. We not only dig deep on dating but also how to navigate friendships as an expat in the Middle East. Charlie compares the dating apps, shares her dating disasters and triumphs, and which app she prefers. We also speak on the legalities behind dating in Dubai, dating a guy your friend has already dated, and why many people may date from a suspicion standpoint. We also get into the matchmaking process as both a client and a member. Charlie lends her number one advice on dating and why not to discount the ‘slow burn’ …or an ex?!

Dating in Dubai with @fi_wishart pt. 2
We welcome one of our favorite guests and friend: Fiona Wishart of Love Bites Podcast for a part two chat…a lot has changed for her since her season one debut. Should getting over someone involve getting under someone else? Fi speaks on how that turned out for her, adult conversations leading to relationships, and why ‘compromise’ is the new cuss word. We also chat on women earning more in a relationship, finances when moving in with a partner, and whether an imbalance in salary equals an imbalance in control. We wrap it up with pondering whether Tinder is the best Dubai dating app and why low expectations in dating can lead to a serious relationship.
