Q: Anybody for meeting for lunch or drinks in Shanghai?

Hopefully in the Changning area or perhaps Jingan.  I could definitely enjoy developing a small group of friends to hang with.

join a gym or go to a local English Corner:  it is better to develop friendships organically through shared interests.

Although there is a certain young lady posting on this site who will probably jump at the opportunity to be your friend and more given half the chance.

Hi sorrel,

Lol.  I didn't post looking for hookups but i guess some might take it that way.  I'm not a teacher and I don't know anything about English Corner.  I was actually hoping there might be an existing group here in Shanghai (perhaps a nice mix of Chinese and expats) that I might find out about here on this site.

I am working so much during the week that I rarely find time to go out and explore even my own neighborhood.  But today I have time and that is exactly what I am going to do!

Thanks for your advise.  I am planning to join a gym that is only about 10 minute walk from my apartment.  But honestly I have almost always belonged to a gym in recent years and even in America rarely ever met new people there that became friends outside of the gym.  Maybe that is different here?

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
