How close-knit is the expat community in this area? How do I get involved with it?
Because of the strict religious rules that govern in Saudi Arabia, socializing between the sexes and unrelated people is restricted, but within the confines of the compounds that house expatriates the rules are more relaxed and the level of interaction depends on the individual.
Beside expat groups, what is the best way to make social connections outside of work?
You will be more restricted in this area than you'd be in any other country. So the expat population might be your best option.
Where can I meet other singles in this city?
Saudi Arabia is an Islamic country. It is forbidden by law to meet people of the other sex. Not obeying that rule can lead to imprisonment.
Are there any unique networking opportunities for accompanying partners?
Social groups exist for spouses in Saudi Arabia.
