      Hi everyone!

      I moved last January to Dublin from Switzerland so I would be able to be with my boyfriend and I haven’t regretted since my choice to move here. 🙂 I am 26 years old and originally Spanish, I was born and grew up though in Switzerland. I’m working as a nurse here and I’m really happy with my job, everything is grand, except that I am having a really hard time to find friends here. I thought I’d be able to find friends at work, but they all have their own circles of friends and don’t seem wanting to pursue friendship with somebody new.
      I tried finding friends by joining dance classes, but had no luck yet.

      I have many interests, so I’ll list some here:

      – I love going out, having a few drinks and a good laugh
      – I go often to the cinema and enjoy all sorts of genres
      – I’m really into books
      – I love animals
      – I like doing stuff outdoors but I can enjoy as well a quiet night in
      – I’m generally fun loving 😀 and almost up for anything

      So if you feel like me or any other way please reply 😀

                    Hey Katia (and all!),

                    I’m Diana, 33, originally from Germany, and only just moved to Dublin these days.
                    We seem to enjoy similar things and share many interests – I’m also always up for a girls’ night out, love outdoorsy activies (horse riding!) and animals, reading, and learning new things. I’d like to learn Portuguese (Dublin seems to be just the right place for that..), find a place to go horse riding, and attend a ‘Krav Maga’ or belly dance class.. So if you’re interested in any of those, you are very welcome to joing me! 🙂 But I’m also up for just a chat over a coffee any time.. Feel free to email me to
                    Looking forward to hearing from you!
