How Would you Date a Shemale in Cape Town?

It would not be an exaggeration to say Cape Town is Africa’s LGBT capital. A lot of men are looking for pre-op and non-op trans women to date here in the southern city. Non-op means the woman will not undergo sex reassignment surgery and will keep her male genitals. Pre-op is where she has plans to undergo one at some point in the future. Women like this are referred to as “shemale” (not a nice word) because they are female, but with male genitals.

Cape Town shemale dating is in full swing. This city is remarkable in that it is full of beautiful people. There are more actresses, models, and artists here per capita than rocks on Mount Rushmore. Local men and women are a sultry mix of African charm, style, and throaty giggles. Cape Town is what you would get if you crossed Jamaica with California. It’s the perfect place to be if walking along a beach like the one at Clifton while holding a beautiful person’s hand is all you’ve ever wanted in life. 

If you’re not from Cape Town, there are a few other things you should know about locals. They are not only very beautiful but also very active. It’s a rare thing to find a Cape Townian who will sleep in on Saturday or who doesn’t have a habit of running up Lion’s Head.

Another thing to keep in mind when dating a trans person in Cape Town is that locals typically don’t have the “patience” for a long-distance relationship. If they use this term, take it to include a relationship with someone in the northern part of the country.

If you’re not actively dating yet and want to meet a local trans woman, you could try international sites like My Trans Date or My Ladyboy Date. There are some interesting profiles on there. These will indicate the surgical status too. People in Cape Town use TS Dating as well, but some of the women on here are not legitimate accounts. Afro Introductions is a local offering, which seems to have profiles of trans women looking for long-term relationships. Remember: even if the word “shemale” is used on a profile, do not use it yourself when chatting to someone.

In Cape Town, you will meet trans people in malls, at art events, in bars or clubs, and maybe even at your local grocery store. They lead normal everyday lives. The lovely city has a laid-back atmosphere that’s perfect for romance. People are generally open and accepting of the trans community. South Africa’s constitution explicitly bans discrimination on the basis of gender and sexual orientation, and we certainly couldn’t argue this isn’t beneficial to the LGBT community and its supporters.
