Dr Saliha Afridi, clinical psychologist and managing director of The Light House Arabia in Dubai, says there is some truth behind the notion that dating in big cities is harder.She believes that there are several reasons for this.She believed that they were getting serious, only to find out that the ‘gentleman’ in question was not only married, but also had two children back in his home country. Liana, a 33-year-old Australian accountant, shared a similar experience.

“When people have too many choices they can end up feeling more overwhelmed and less likely to commit because they always have one foot out the door to meet someone better,” says Dr Afridi.

She also believes that there’s a larger contextual issue behind our inability to commit.

We all have an underlying anxiety of wanting and needing more or better – we are in a culture where we are bombarded by the latest and greatest versions of the same phone.

We’re taught by the media to never be happy with what we have and to always want more, whereas 25 to 30 years ago, people bought one television or one phone to last a lifetime.“We cannot undermine the effects of this constant updating and ungrateful attitude towards material on our psyche and our relationships,” says Dr Afridi.

I like to believe that all of us can have our happy ending, but some of the horror stories I’ve heard from dating in Dubai are enough to put anyone off men for life.

One friend, I recall, was dating a guy for more than eight months.

One date decided to invite two of his friends and a girl he fancied along for the evening, another guy stalked her for two months, while the man she was engaged to decided to join the army... “I still have hope I’ll meet someone, but it fades every day,” she says.

Over the years I have formulated all kinds of theories as to why Dubai seems to have a lack of men who are willing to commit, so I decided to try to find a more definitive answer.

They came up with a theory that demonstrated if you have to pick the best candidate – whether that be a prospective partner or a potential employee – statistically speaking, the way that yields the best results is to reject the first 37 per cent of the people you see, and then choose the next person who is better than the people you’ve seen previously.
