This area, like any other, has its own unique culture and customs. Consider a few very important things that will be useful to you to understand this people and its culture:
- Features of dating. South Africa has 11 official languages. This means that at least the same number of cultures live there, or even more. Courtship patterns and attitudes toward marriage vary from one ethnic group to another. However, most of the traditional characteristics apply to all cultures and ethnic groups living in South Africa;
- Gender roles. Despite the incredible changes in this area in the world and in Africa in particular, this area is still patriarchal. This suggests that most of the population considers men to be higher than women, and therefore it is the man who earns, and the woman takes care of him. Even if a woman has three higher educations and she can earn a lot of money. Such things may seem wrong and incomprehensible to most modern people, but it will take some getting used to if you want to date an Afrikaans man. It can take you a long time to explain and change his worldview, so be patient if you don't like this family structure;
- Features of the personalities of Afrikaans men. Get ready for a long and romantic courtship. Most likely, you will be treated like a princess: move a chair, open doors, skip ahead, etc. Afrikaans women want their man to look like a knight and not be ashamed to show his parents and friends. Mom's boys are raised in an appropriate way. Most men are gentlemen with a dash of chivalry and an obsession with sports;
- Sport. A lot of men in South Africa are obsessed with it - it's a big part of their culture. Most likely, your chosen one will be healthy, hardy, in good shape and obsessed with sports. Thus, they not only have fun and enjoyable time, but also give vent to feelings and can throw out the accumulated anger and aggression somewhere. This does not mean that they are all angry or aggressive. There are many tender and vulnerable among them who will carry you in their arms and protect you from everything. With his girlfriend, he will be cute and fluffy, but otherwise - serious, alert and a little scary.
