The hardest part about dating is finding that special something - a common problem of dating of any kind. Ivory Coast dating offers a chance to meet exotic African women with a unique background that only adds to their beauty, charm, and appeal.
Western men often find the characteristics of African women a refreshing alternative from what is usually found in the normal dating scene they encounter. Aside from natural beauty, women from this part of the world tend to have certain cultural influences engrained into their personality. It is often said that opposites attract, which may be the case here. You can call it an exchange of cultures or maybe even a perfect match.
While everybody has their own reasons for being attracted to someone else, there tends to be a mutual respect among people from different cultures. Part of the reason for this is that there is so much to share and experience for both partners.
Dating is usually about finding things you have in common with the other person. The same is true with dating that spans cultures, but differences can be appealing too. In fact, embracing differences can make a relationship more exciting. These differences can encompass everything from cultural experiences to dining selections. It usually takes a while to discover differences and similarities between perspective soul mates. When dipping into an international dating pool you already know some of the differences beforehand. It's finding out the other stuff that's part of the fun.
Variety is said to be the spice of life and that's definitely sums up Ivory Coast dating. It's a more serious type of commitment than typical dating, but that's usually just fine with the men looking for women from Africa and vice versa.
If you think about it, there is something inherently appealing about having a general knowledge of what is expected out of a relationship before diving in. It's still that human connection that leads to a successful match. Some things in this world are universal. A desire for human companionship and someone to love are two of those things.
Cote d'Ivoire was a French colony from 1893 until 1960 and French is the official language. However, many of the women speak local dialects on a daily basis. Also, many families do not believe in enrolling young girls in school. Most elementary and secondary students are male and there is a higher than expected rate of illiteracy among women, but most of the ladies who sign up for international dating sites are likely to be fluent in French. So, if you are interested in Mademoiselle from the Ivory Coast perhaps you better brush up the old high school French.
Like many parts of West Africa religion is a critical issue to consider when searching for Ivory Coast brides. About 35% of Ivory Coast's women are Muslim and perhaps slightly more are Christian and the rest follow other religious practices, but it is tough to be certain about an Ivory Coast girl's religious practices until you actually observe them.
What is conservative in Kansas might not be conservative or even practiced in parts of Africa. This caution is true for both Christian and Muslims, because there are often strong undertones of native religions in both Islam and Christianity. Of course, if you don't care about an Ivory Coast woman's religion none of this will matter so much.
The Ivory Coast is a small country on the West Coast of Africa with a population of about twenty million people. Since 1985 the country's government has requested that it be known as Cote d'Ivoire, but it is still largely referred to by its English name, Ivory Coast.
The Ivory Coast was generally much more stable and economically successful than most of the other newly independent African nations from 1960 until the late 1990s. A decline in the prices of the nation's two main commodities, coffee and coca, led to economic instability which led to a 1999 coup and that led to about five years of intermittent political violence and at times full-blown civil war.
Since 2004 the country has generally been peaceful and that makes it an easier place to pursue an African mail order bride than many countries in the region. However, there is not much of a tourist infrastructure, so it will probably be a lot more complicated to get a ticket to the Ivory Coast than you might expect, however the ticket may not be that expensive, because the government and foreign donors, particularly the French, subsidize the international air service.
The same issue also applies to hotels, so the level of service and amenities might not reach the level that you expect. So, be patient and try to understand the cultural differences. This is good advice to remember when pursing an African mail order bride, but it is also true if you decide to pursue a Latin woman or Russian girl.
Finally, one of the most surprising things about the Ivory Coast is that it has one of the largest populations of ethnically non-Africans of any country on the continent other than South Africa. About 4% of the Ivory Coast's population is not ethnically African. Most of these people are either of French or Vietnamese descent and there is also a substantial, but hard to quantify number of people of mixed racial heritage.
