Nigerian dating customs

Rated 4.5/5 based on 506 customer reviews

Unlike most of the Western women who had to fight in order to be allowed to work, the Nigerian women had a far greater economic freedom, which, unfortunately, did not value too much for their life partners or for men in general.

Because most of the Nigerian men started to take their wives, mothers and sisters for granted, most Nigerian women either lowered their expectations or began to look for alternatives abroad, eager to get a taste of neutral emotional commitment and fidelity.

But depending on their education – see Education & Jobs, many people are are not fluent in English and for informal occasions, most people prefer to speak in their mother tongue.

‘Pidgin’ English is also used in casual conversation; this is a mixture of English and Nigerian words.

Their grouping together into a single entity known as Nigeria was a construct of their British colonizers.

The languages of these three groups can therefore be used in government.

A new means of meeting members of the opposite sex and courtship was needed.

Thus, out of this necessity, the modern Western dating ritual was born.

Men too began to look for wives abroad, and that is how the Nigerian people made their way in online dating.

There are many specialized websites offering Nigerian dating options, but, before going further and taking the first step to setting a date with somebody, please make sure you take into consideration a few safety tips: No matter if this is your first date or you have already gathered some experience in Nigerian dating, make sure you take into consideration the cultural differences and what the other person may be expecting from you, because it would not be fair to mislead that person into hoping for more than you can offer, just like it would not be good for you to put all your hopedas and trust in that person and discover that nothing was real!
