Socializing in Kuwait on a short visit

I had a question from a  European man who wrote to tell me that he comes here on short business visits and doesn't have time to meet anyone, but he would like to get into the social life in Kuwait. 

Ya gotta do yer homework before you come here.

First, if  you want to find out what social activities are going on at the time of your visits, you should contact groups like the American Business Council, British Business Forum, and check out the blogs and Kuwait forums. 

If you want to make friends (and don't have the time while you are here), get onto either the online dating/friendship sites (http://www.pof.com/, http://www.friendfinder.com/, http://www.badoo.com/) or any of the social media sites like Facebook or WhatsApp. Remember the days of pen pals?  Well, start making some of them in the age of technology so that you can meet up once you get here.

There are a few Facebook groups that might be able to help:

All the new comers Expats who recently moved to kuwait and looking to make friends of both genders.. come join us here and start preparing to say Goodbye to old boring days :)
The Grapevine Kuwait

Have nothing to do? Want to socialize with others? The Grapevine is a site where you can find social groups, events and activities happening around Kuwait. Have an event, activity, or social group you'd like to share? Feel free to send it over.
Yahoo has a directory of groups in Kuwait at dir.groups.yahoo.com/dir/Regional/Countries/Kuwait.
And in answer to your question - there are LOTS of parties in Kuwait.  However, you will never know about them unless you make friends.  You can find EVERYTHING and MORE in Kuwait, but it is all done under the radar.

I enjoyed your post but, what about Expats are here to stay? I wish to meet Arab Ladies who are interested in Black Americans but I don't know how or where to start. Can you give me any suggestions?
