12 Things You Need to Know Before Dating a South African Girl
Firstly thank you, we are beautiful and deserve to have fair treatment just like anybody else. When it comes to family it gets intensely tricky, however it is really up to the both of you to open their minds up to something different and assure them that it is okay. We are uncomfortable with things unfamiliar even more so when there are negative stereotypes attached to it.
Hopefully they will at least take the time to get to know your girlfriend before they place absolute judgement. All the best and thanks for engaging. Like Liked by 1 person.

Then, unless your ladylove from SA is the same, it's probably best to move along. When you have a South African girlfriend, you won't need a big brother. It doesn't matter who she is—if someone messes with their mother, brother, little sister or boyfriend, a Saffa girl will not take it lying down.
She will make them regret the day they were born. If there's one thing that South African girls have, it's sass. So if you're so much as rude to a Saffa girl's boyfriend, she'll make you regret the day you were born. Flirting with a man in a relationship with them should also be done with extreme caution. Rugby is something that unites South Africans, no matter what age they are, what race they are or what culture they are. Whether your South African girlfriend watches rugby or not, she will, at the very least, be able to tell you what a scrum is.
It's something that's trained into us from a young age, and you'll hardly walk around in a South African mall and not find someone sporting a "Springbok" jersey somewhere. The hype around rugby in South Africa goes back decades and there's nothing more fun than chilling at a friend's "braai" on a Saturday afternoon with a Klippies and Cola, watching your guests cheer for their favourite rugby team and celebrating when the game is over.
Your girl should be a pro at this as well. A barbecue is called a "braai", a satsuma is called a "naartjie", and any form of alcohol is called a "dop". If you start dating a South African girl, you'll start picking up on words you've never heard in your life before. If you're going to do something later, you'll start saying that you'll do it "just now" or "now now", and it could mean that you'll do it in 5 minutes time or in a month. You'll also abbreviate greetings and instead of saying "how's it going?
At first you'll probably struggle to understand what your South African love interest is saying to you, but you'll get the hang of it. South Africans tend to swear in one of their 11 official languages, and most of the time it isn't English. This is especially obvious in songs you might have heard from Die Antwoord or the movie District 9. Afrikaans tends to be a favourite because the words are very similar to Dutch and come out rather fierce and rough. Of course, that doesn't mean that all South African ladies like to swear, some really detest it, but if she's mad, you can be sure that at least one swear word will cross those pretty lips of hers, even if it isn't a bad one.
Mind you, you won't even know it because you don't speak one of the 11 official languages, except English of course. Even if your girl swears like a sailor, you can be sure that she uses her "pleases" and "thank yous" like a saint. Especially when it comes to her elders. Older people are held at a higher standard in South Africa and you'll probably hear your girl refer to older people by saying "uncle this" and "aunty that", and that's because we grow up with Afrikaans people that refer to their elders as "oom" and "tannie".
She will also be a massive hit with your parents because she will ask before she does anything that she might deem disrespectful in your parents' home like leave the table before anyone's finished with their food , keep her swearing to herself and laugh at jokes even if they're only mildly amusing. We're cool like that. As I've stated before, "braaiing" is a favourite South African past-time, so if your girl loves her meat a little too much then you know where it came from.
A favourite for Saffa girls is one big, juicy steak from their local Spur or Dros with a side of "slap" chips. This normally goes hand-in-hand with her love of spending lots of time with her family. So if you're visiting her family with her, expect lots of chatting, eating, laughing and more eating. Of course you do get the odd vegetarian in South Africa, they still love to eat big portions of whatever is being served, because we just love our food.
Whether it's wine, beer, cider or spirits, South African love them some "dop". Your girl will know what wine to have with which meat, she'll be able to tell you what type of spirit you're drinking with your cola and most importantly, she'll probably be able to drink way more than you and still keep her composure, and to keep your ego in check, she won't brag about it either. Again, this doesn't count for all Saffa girls, but if you do come across a girl who likes to drink, she'll be quite good at it. One thing you will notice though, is that most Saffa girls stay away from beer because it's considered "dodgy" in South Africa when a girl drinks beer.
Mainly because our beer is the type that will make you grow chest hair. No Bud Light for us, thanks. A South African girl who doesn't like animals, isn't a true South African. We were born and bred to love our little puppies and kittens like they are our children, so if you fall in love with a girl from South Africa, be prepared to love her "children" just as much.
She probably has three little Yorkshire Terriers that keep her company along with a cat named "Fluffy" and they are her whole world. In a country that celebrates wildlife, we learn to love our animals deeply and spoil them constantly - and no, we don't keep lions as pets despite popular belief although that would be absolutely awesome , and it might be strange, but a lot of ladies in South Africa are against hunting, even if their fathers aren't.
There are some people in South Africa who speak English fluently the majority, really , but of course there will always be people who have a bit of an iffy accent, no matter where you go in the world, and South Africa is no exception. Some people struggle to say the "th" sound in "south", "mouth" or "those" and end up saying "f". Others struggle to say the "a" in "African" and end up saying "efrican". Now, if your girl is one of the fluent English speakers, she will probably find it very offensive if you ask her to say "Souf Efrican".
Try to refrain from asking her to say it like that, and if she does speak like that, you'd do well not to point it out.

Perhaps South African girls should know that they're pretty, because the most famous South African girls are bombshells Charlize Theron and Victoria Secret model Candice Swannepoel, but we're brought up being modest and that looks aren't everything, so if you're complimenting your girl and she shrugs it off, don't take it personally. Saffa girls appreciate a compliment, but feel terribly awkward accepting it.
She will probably blush or roll her eyes, but you can be sure that she will be giggling about it throughout the day in her own mind. Sign in or sign up and post using a HubPages Network account.

Kevin barlow, I don't know who you dated in SA that you this opinion of classifying all SA women as "Stuck Up" and "gold diggers" I am very independent, Don't need a man for shit!
So I suggest you rather keep your KAK comments and opinions to yourself! You will never meet any girl in another country that have quality like ours! I fell in love straight away,we r soul mates,and Angel is coming here to live in the U. Guys, this info applies for white South African girls.
Black South African girls are cheeky and they expect you to do everything for them and they are spoilt brats. They use way too much make-up and overdo with cosmetic products. Coloured Black-White South Africans are violent and racist. They are a very hostile race in South Africa.
Indian South Africans are pretty laid back and relaxed, easy to talk to and really cool. If you marry one, expect to eat chilli food at least once a week. I know all of this because I live in central South Africa.
