5 reasons why you should date and marry a Ghanaian

Ghanaians are the best country to date and marry from the 52 African countries if we are being very honest. The 25 million population is filled with some pretty awesome men and women you can date or eventually marry.

Here are 5 reasons why you should definitely date or marry a Ghanaian

•They’re super friendly and sociable

This is a point noted by almost anyone who has visited Ghana, and dating a Ghanaian will bring you into the orbit of even more friendly and sociable people. Parties, weddings and even funerals are an occasion to mingle, meet new people and make new friends while sharing a lot of belly laughs. Ghanaians are serious jokers, too. .


•They take eating very seriously


Large portions and rich foods; you’ll never go hungry when dating a Ghanaian. Our food demands a certain appetite with all those heavy starch balls, rich soups, mounds of jollof rice and slabs of yam. Food is a serious business, so don’t expect to talk much during the actual eating of a meal (that could actually be shared by two, sometimes even three people), as the expression ‘chop time, no friends’, rather pithily explains. A full belly is important to Ghanaians, so when it comes to tucking into your food, don’t be shy .


You’ll get ‘Ghanaian prices’ at tourist sites

Deeply frustrating for tourists is the constant need to pay an elevated price for tourist attractions, with Ghanaians sometimes not having to pay anything at all. With your Ghanaian date, that won’t be a problem anymore, even if you aren’t actually Ghanaian or even married to one. You’ll be referred to as ‘husband’ or ‘wife’ and even if it can be proved otherwise, your Ghanaians date is bound to put his or her foot down and sweet-talk their way to a reduced fee, or even get you in for free. Because if you hadn’t already guessed, Ghanaians are charmers, too.


•When you date a Ghanaian, you date their whole family

It won’t be long before you’re being referred to as ‘husband’ or ‘wife’, such is the speed unto which you will be embraced by a Ghanaian’s family. Don’t be alarmed, there is no pressure to get married, it’s just an indication of the affection and steadiness of your relationship. Family occasions are big events and you’ll be embraced wholeheartedly and referred to as a spouse repeatedly, so much so that the time will come when you forget that you aren’t, in fact, married yet.



•They will always be well-dressed
