Dating a Zulu man

The Zulu people govern under a patriarchal society. Men are perceived as the head of the household and seen as authoritative figures. Zulu men identify themselves with great pride and dignity. They also compare themselves to qualities of powerful wild animals such as bulls, lions and elephants. This could explain their lack of softness and hard demeanour.

According to Ulwazi Programme, traditionally, when a Zulu woman confesses her love to a man (ukuqoma), she gives him a string of white beads (ucu).

In Zulu culture, when a woman confesses her love to a man, a series of steps must be taken to ensure that she remains faithful to him. These steps also demonstrate the man's commitment to the woman. This is important because, if the woman becomes pregnant, it is important to know who the father of the child is.
