Apart from their culture of carrying the financial burden of relationship with women, they harness every opportunity to appeal to their lovers, be it on social-network sites, in their respective offices, religious organizations, gym centers, parks, clubs among others.
Despite the many romantic attributes that could be said of men in Nigeria, women still hold a contrary account about them.
I am not a relationship counsellor but I am decent Nigerian man, so I know a lot about us.
In Nigeria, husband and wife work together as a team, each playing different roles in the family.
In your Country’s law, men and women might be equal when it comes to authority and leadership, but this is not the same for us.
To make things quite easy and lovely, I will be explaining the dos and don’ts in a list so you have lesser problem dating Nigerian men.
Respect in Nigeria is something you have to really consider when dating a Nigerian man.
A friend of mine, an European who travelled to Nigeria told me of her cultural shock when she visited a Nigerian family. He will always like not to be distracted when watching a football match so please don’t bother him when an important game is on, else you see his other side.
The wife brought the food to the husband, gave water to wash his hands after eating, and when the husband finished eating, he just stood up leaving the dishes behind for the wife, who afterwards came back thanking him for eating the food and gave him a chiiled cup of beer to top it up. “Men don’t cry” while a psychologist will say it’s a shame that men are taught this, the reality is that in Nigeria, men are expected not to always let out their feelings else he may be regarded as a weakling.
If your Nigerian man is paying household expenses don’t expect him to also do household chores, such as cooking as washing dishes.
This doesn’t mean that he won’t help out here and there or cook sometimes, household work is seen as the woman’s responsibilities.
re you a foreigner in love with a Nigerian man or may be dating a Nigerian man?
