Africa is a large continent with over fifty countries and African dating widely varies depending where your partner is from. A common mistake often made is generalising Africans as a single race, the same way all Americans are from the US. Afro dating can be a marvellous affair, yet it could turn into a sour experience. Ignorance on the partner's background contributes to African dating going wrong. It is not possible to go by all the countries of Africa, giving counsel on partners from each one. Here are four main African countries; Egypt, Nigeria, Kenya and South Africa with each one representing a corner of African dating.
Egypt (North Africa: Morocco, Tunisia etc)
Egyptian ladies are the goddesses! Their beauty in Africa dating is only rivalled by other North African countries. Belly dancing has its roots here and Egyptian belly dancers can stir the loins of the purest of men! Egypt is an Arab country, and consequently follows Islamic law. In Africa dating, Egyptian partners have to be the most challenging. It is more flexible with the younger generation, but only moderately so. Short-term relationships and flings are almost taboo here with girls. The men however can have multiple partners since this is acceptable in their culture. In relationships, Egyptian men are steeped in the idea that the man is the head. It is crucial you accept this or discuss this to avoid conflict. Africa dating in Egypt for men is advisable if you are ready for long-term commitment. You must in all cases respect their religion and culture. It may even be necessary to embrace part of Islam. The women might be stunning, but not all good things come easy!
Nigeria (West Africa: Ghana, Cameroon etc)
Nigerians are the essence of Africa. They are deeply rooted in their culture and they take it with them wherever they go. Nigerians pride in being African and will 'africanise' their relationships. The men adore and take good care of their ladies but they expect the same in return. They like to be dominating and they love the woman who dotes on them. Feed your Nigerian man well and you will have a great afro dating experience. The women are strong-willed with forceful characters and need a man who can match this. Both the men and women have high libidos. If unsatisfied, they will often find their satisfaction elsewhere. Whether short or long-term, African dating a Nigerian can be very fulfilling... if you are up to the challenge.
Kenya (East Africa: Uganda, Tanzania)
Africa dating in Kenya has to be the least complicated in Africa. Kenya is very cosmopolitan and it is an easy place for afro dating. Kenyans are sociable and afro dating is very much alive. As long as you can support your partner financially, there should be little complications. Kenyans are adaptable and can take up any lifestyle if required to. All imaginable forms of inter-racial dating can be found in Kenya. Finding a suitable partner is not hard and once you have gotten one, you will find them very accommodating in the relationship.
South Africa (Botswana, Namibia etc)
South Africa is Africa's most advanced country and is often regarded as a developed country. It is naturally expected that African dating here would be the most straight-forward of all, but it is not the case. Apartheid is still fairly clear in their minds and they are highly suspicious of foreigners, including other Africans. Afro dating a South African requires patience for the trust to gradually build... and it does eventually. It is definitely worth the wait and effort, especially if you are keen on a long-term relationship. South Africans are very loving and loyal, giving their all in relationships.
Once again, understand that African dating is widely varying. To say all Africans fit into these categories would be stereotyping. This is just to give an idea and is defonotely not the rules to be followed. They are all their own individuals and afro dating needs you to understand your partner first as with all relationships. Now, go out and date Africa! It could be your most fulfilling experience!
