- A young woman recently headed online to complain about the Cape Town dating scene
- According to the post, singles in Cape Town appear to be very physically active because she described all the dates as sporty occasions
- The thread garnered quite a few reactions from locals who found it super hilarious
While it seems Mzansi has its fair share of singles, there are still so many looking for love. A young woman recently headed to Twitter to complain about her struggle to find love in Cape Town because so many dates consist of sports activities such as climbing mountains.
"Dating in Cape Town is so hard. Why do I need to climb mountains and hills on a date? I just want a boyfriend that I can one day marry and make babies with. How does doing the Tour de Atlantic Seaboard help me decide if you're worth keeping?
"If it's not mountains and rocks and rivers and roads then I have to win gold in the drinking Olympics, otherwise I'm boring. No man. Just calm down," she wrote clearly frustrated.
Many people seemingly agreed with her post and had this to say:
"Apparently, such dates are to test how one handles adversities and challenges. I don't want any tests."

"This thread shows you how mjolo in Cape Town is hectic. Cape Town, guys, please stop with your adventures and theatrics. The ladies are not impressed."
"Dating in Jozi is even harder sis. Guys here don’t even ask us to be their girlfriends any more. They take your number, call you “Baby” on the first call (guess we now dating) then they invite you out for drinks with their friends and introduce you as their GF."
In other Briefly News about relationships, a young man with the Twitter handle @SithaleKgaogelo recently had Twitter buzzing after he shared an interesting question about a concept called friendship dating that entails two strictly friends going on a serious date together.

"What do you think about friendship dates?" he asked.
