The sun is starting to shine over the Mother City after the rigors of the Winter months and there’s no better time to start Dating in Cape Town. A recent report from the Cape Times estimates that migration to Cape Town and the Western cape has risen 29% since 1996m the highest growth rate in the whole country. Although this means many things on many levels it also means a lot more Cape Town Singles looking for love. (Okay that’s a slightly tenuous link but you get the idea :).
Cape Town Dating is widespread but where do you start looking for online dating. Well that’s where we come in. Just login to SA Online Dating, create a Free account and then cruise through the search results cherry picking all the best and most beautiful people Cape Town has to offer. Once you’ve shortlisted them, its time to get down to the nitty gritty of interviewing them. (Informally of course :). Only after a few days of online interrogation will you be able and confident enough to take any budding romance into the great outdoors. And in Cape Town you’re never short of venues or romantic places to go. A personal favorite is Kirstenbosch. (Maybe catch a summer concert?) It’s public enough to feel safe but private enough to feel relaxed and comfortable. It’s also centrally located and easy to get too AND won’t break the bank. Another option, if you’re feeling romantic, is the top of the Cable Car at Table Mountain AND if you’re super romantic you could climb you way to the top with a rose in your mouth and then jump over the edge and surprise her. (Okay okay, that might be a bit ambitious for the first date .. let’s stick to Kirstenbosch).
This is where the real dating starts and all the traditional rules come into play and where things can go wrong especially if you’ve been less than honest with your online profile. Have you seen people wearing T-Shirts lately with the slogan “I’m much more interesting online”. Although it’s funny, it can, in some cases be 100% true. Just be mindful of this fact and don’t build your expectations too early. Cape Town online dating is meant to be fun so just remember that. Good luck out there.
