    Cristen,

    A quick and dirty translation, just for you.

    Literally, girl child, but used affectionately as a form of address.

    "ek is diep , maar net want ek weet hoe ongelooflik jy is en hoe baie meer dit kan wees as ek jou net n bietjie meer kan leer ken...jy is ongelooflik , en pragtig , en wil nie he jy moet ooit n haar op jo kop verander nie"
    I'm deep, but only because I know how incredible you are and how much more it could be if I just could get to know you a little better... you're amazing, and beautiful, and I wouldn't want you to change a hair on your head.

    "kyk mooi na jouself en ek mis jou , en wens ek was nou by jou"
    Take good care of yourself and I miss you and wish I was with you right now.

    ches

            Yeah, I thought either that, or he's deeply in love (although that's a bit of an anglisisme, ne?) or it could be a typo.

            I always had a soft spot for the little Afrikaner seuntjies because of their soft mushy side. The English one are all about beer and surfing and tuning you kak all the time. But then I settled for a nice soft mushy American

                Ches, just had a good giggle about your "tuning you kak" comment. Classic! Must use that when I speak to my Saffie buddie later.

                Cristen, feel free to ask for translations anytime. Ches and I will take care of you.

                  Haters!!!!!

                  I agree that there are many awesome S.A men out there, but please don't dog American men. I am married to one and he treats me wonderfully. There are good and bad men and women in every nationality!!! Please don't sound so uneducated. That's just ignorance!!
