New Zealanders are largely sophisticated and highly educated urban dwellers. Their country has a diverse population - but with some uniting features that make it unique in the world. A relatively isolated South Pacific location and rugged landscapes make many New Zealanders quietly independent, resourceful and self-reliant. For Kiwis, loyalty to friends and comrades is a prized social value. Men from New Zealand usually are very friendly and outgoing; they enjoy extending hospitality, but wealth and social status are not as important to them. They make perfect partners for reliable, long-lasting relationships. They take pride in individual achievements and believe that opportunities should be available to all. Date a Kiwi and you will never be bored - they love their beautiful, natural landscapes and are avid outdoorsmen, and, in general, are vigorously physically active. The main religion in New Zealand is Christianity.
New Zealand is an island country in the southwestern Pacific Ocean; it is near Australia and consists of two main islands and a number of smaller outlying islands. The country has three official languages: English, Māori, and New Zealand Sign, but the main language remains English. Spectacular glaciers, picturesque fiords, rugged mountains, vast plains, rolling hillsides, subtropical forests, volcanic plateaus, miles of coastline with gorgeous sandy beaches - it’s all here. New Zealand has mild temperatures, moderately high rainfall, and many hours of glorious sunshine throughout the country.
