cheers sweetiefemi 2000: if you are dating a Nigerian man you must expect many things, in the culture of the Nigerians they always love to dominate their partner which means you should e somebody that is very patient, they always want to show that they are the Husband which means you have to be humble another thing you should expect is that they are easily carried away with love which means you need to hold unto him tightly so that he will not be snatched away from you/ Nigerian men love to be cared even tho this was for her, thanks because im feeling the same way she is feeling, and this was helpful...at the same time, they need to know that if your picking up an american women, they should know as well that here ( u.s.a.), everything is 50/50, you take care of me i take care of you.....because any other form shows that he is self centered, and only cares about himself.
OKAY yall i have been going wih this man for about 2 months and we were almost perfect from the start until thing start crashing down i although when we started dating i had no idea he was nigerian untill a week after us being together i never really cared to much because he seemed to be a great guy i also new that thing that he does was going to be different from thing i wasnt use to but i was willing to see pass that because i was really falling for this man he did everything i asked of him and vise versa he always wanted to be dominate and controlling almost possessive but i took it as he loved me which he did i tried to be very patient but he had a very bad temper which but a dent in our relationship i am 19 years old and he is 21 which he felt was a problem at first but we got passed it i started to really love him but his actions wouldnt let me he is very controlling insecure and sometime mindless he felt his word was always over mine because i was young and a american i actually dont put nigerians down because some of them are great just have to have patients to deal with themcooking & cleaning?
Back then, whenever we have any argument, she'll tell me am so African. Finestlex: How come the only Canadian I dated was full of poo. We all have good and bad sides but we must embrace both in someone we love.
---The reasons behind which I'm opening this topic is, because I'm currently in college and dating a Nigerian man (Yoruba) for the first time.
I know Kenyan women whose careers and lives have come to a standstill after a Nigerian man swept them clean, and I mean clean; car, house, land, money… So today, ladies, I chose to address this topic, once and for all. He debunks every myth you have ever heard about Nigerian men swindling women off their money. You think that the Lord has finally smiled upon you and given you a wonderful man who is not only loving, but also rich.
After this, I don’t expect any of you to be conned by a so-called ‘romantic’ Nigerian man. All those prayers you prayed for a husband have finally been answered. He is making an investment and he knows what he is doing. He will be in dire need of some Sh2 million for a deal and because he has created an illusion of wealth, you will readily give in. He moves in with you: So he gives you a cock and bull story about how he is putting up with a friend in Kileleshwa but has been unsuccessfully looking for a house.
babygurl, tell me what man in the US would do this more often, without griping, nontheless a Nigerian man?
LOLtho, there are some men infact, who do enjoy contributiing like that. My X BOYFRIEND is Nigerian (Igbo) from PH and the reason we didnt make it, is because he leaves messy 'tracks' for me to see clear evidence of his inconsistency in behaviour.
If you found a Nigerian man in US, try it out and learn as much of the culture as u can, because its a beautiful thing finding a GOOD man back from our original roots.
