Please note: The appropriate audience to read this blog must be interested in Kiwi women, have just arrived into New Zealand or en route to New Zealand and must be single and are up for a challenge! If that is you then this blog may get you a long way when it comes to the wahine (maori) a.k.a women a.k.a kiwi chicks! When I say “you must be up for a challenge” I say this because in 2012 an international study showed that Kiwi women were amongst the most promiscuous in the world, so it might be easy to score a Kiwi girl but dating one is a different kettle of fish…
Now I know some people may think that it’s just statistics, how on point can that really be for such a small country? In reality, the statistics have to come from somewhere for this small country to stand out. How hard can it be to date a Kiwi girl then? On a scale of 1 – 10 (10 being the hardest) I am going to say… a very deserving 10. But why? Here are some reasons behind this theory…
The word “date” according to the urban dictionary may be used to identify a get together between two people not romantically involved, but this usage is meant to convey irony, since such a meeting is not a date in the true sense of the word. Which is the exact logic that Kiwi girls have. If you want to take a Kiwi girl on an actual date then be prepared to pull out all of the stops, don’t just class a date as a casual get together if you want to be more than a statistic!
Wine and dine her – not just your typical dinner and a movie but also add an extra mile on top of that, dinner-movie-AND the foot rub. Yes, the foot rub, on a first date. Also, nobody ever turned down a bottle of wine or chocolate. Even chocolate in the form of a heart to show that you are really interested. It tastes better when it’s free and even backpackers know that’s a fact! In order to get a 2nd date you need to show that you are serious otherwise you will just be another statistic! You need to be willing to share in the interests of the average kiwi chick. Some of these interests are as follows –
- Drinking alcohol to a great and unnecessary extent,
- Spending more money than you can afford to ‘just because’ (In saying that – nothing is too expensive if her dad can afford it),
- Using ‘just because’ as an excuse for everything,
- Refering to yourself as one of the boys even though she is clearly not…
- Make sure you have an accent – kiwi chicks dig accents, ask any of them.
- If you have a good sense of humour and an accent, forget the rest, you’re in.
If for some unforeseen reason you don’t get a date, some girls can just be as unpredictable as the weather, in this circumstance you will need to confide in a Kiwi bloke for a ‘man date’ also known in New Zealand as ‘Bromance’. On these ‘man dates’ you can expect to consume a crap ton amount of beer and a few pick me ups and passing comments such as “you’ll be right mate” and “don’t pack a sad just grab another bevvie” whilst at the same time on the hunt for a new chick to try your luck with.
At the end of the day if you are in New Zealand to travel then make that your main focus! Whether you meet a city chick or a small town country chick, the similarities vary but the one thing Kiwi girls all love is a person that knows what they want. Less of the mixed messages and more of the fun and adventure, that’s what travelling is all about right? Never knowing what you’re going to get until you get there.
