    Whats the chances of an Aussie girl meeting a nice expat...

    HI! I'm a 37 year old Australian female seriously considering moving to Hong Kong in the coming months... I am told that expat males do not generally partner up with fellow expats.

    Is this true or a tale? Would love to hear from those who have experienced meeting expats and the partnership/relationship you have had with them... Australians or Kiwis in particular...

    Thanks! Not the be all and end all of my decision making process, but Australia has a man shortage!!!!

    Hey I'd meet up with you but to answer your question HK (and Singapore) has a fair mix of expats. Some think the sun shines out of their you-know-whats and some are fresh first-timers who have never left their home country. Avoid the bars and you should be safe.

    Not the kind you might want to hook up with long term without having to pay for the priviledge!

    So very true!

    You meet people at bars for a bit of fun but nothing more.

    And I'm sure you've heard all that before too. Just a warning but hey give it a go you may like it being as you're from Sydney.

    Well this is all very interesting... so where does one meet a guy for friendship and perhaps something more permanent if it's not a bar? Clearly, thats how we do it here!

    Actually, I have only known ONE person of all my Australian friends and relatives who met their future partner/spouse in a bar. "At work" would be the majority of people! Followed by "friend of a friend/friend introduced us".
