So, I'm kind of massively super excited, because I've launched something special today, it is called "Expat Spouse Connect". It is basically a service to help Expat Spouses independently create a social circle in "real life" with fellow Expat Spouses wherever they live.
As Expat Spouses we can sometimes feel alienated from a group of outsiders...expats themselves! I often wonder where I fit within the Expat World; Expat Social Networking Sites and Networking events both positively scare and bore me in equal measures. I sometimes feel other expats can be more interested in business networking, dating or meeting after work hours (for some of us the daytime tends to be the quietest when a spouse is at work). Then of course, after explaining why you are an expat, there is THAT dreaded question "so what do you do?" which more often than not is followed by judgement.
So why use this Service?
It is free (for now), you would actually be crazy mad not to do this;
Grab back your independence; yaay for no longer jumping up like a puppy dog screaming "have they got an other half" at your partner when they explain they met someone new a work that day;
You can start creating a social circle for yourself before you've even touchdowned in your new home.
This service is specifically for expats so if you aren't an expat spouse, please don't waste the time it will take for us to work out if you are a sane human being and please just go to the mwillion of sites you have available out there. By nature, we all obviously have a fellow partner we share our lives with - so this sure as hell is not an expat dating service either, (if I get one more "poke" from Gary676 on a certain expat social site I will find a way to extend that "poke" into a virtual "slap").
How does Expat Spouse Connect work?
Well, you just complete our form on the above page/tab named "Expat Spouse Connect" and then The Expat Spouse emails you with a list of future Best Friends Forever. If both Spouses indicate to us that they want to exchange emails then with your express permission, we will release your email address to the other spouse. The rest is totally up to you both but you have to do everyone a favour and let us know how it goes so your fellow Expat Spouse can become a trustworthy member of our community.
And the best thing is it is that this totally FREE because I'm just lovely like that. p.s. we are not at all promising that this isn't a tactic to make friends wherever we go in the World next, ahem.
