DINNER and maybe a movie. As a native New Yorker, that generally summed up most of my date nights in the US.
At the age of 26, I took a leap of faith and moved to Namibia where my dating life took a dramatic turn.
Just before I left for Namibia a few friends joked that I’d find my ‘African king’ there. I brushed them off. The last thing I was moving to Africa for was a date. My focus was finally experiencing life on the African continent. That superseded everything else.
