I am African American woman, dating Igbo man
He hasn’t introduced me to his family after 2 yrs dating. We were in nursing school together. I have finished school he is still attending. He is 32 yrs old, I am 41. I have 3 children from previous marriage. He has met my family, mother children, everyone that means something to me.
I have only met his family in his church. They don’t know who I am, they think we are just friends. This saddens me at times. He told me that everything must be done in an orderly fashion and that it is not time yet to meet his family even though he met mine.
He said that was my decision to do that and that he is not the same. I have been learning how to make Nigerian meals and desserts. I am doing everything I can think of to let him know I love him and will always be there. I don’t know if he really wants to be with me.
I am confused. I wonder if he is embarrassed by me?? I am older and have children, but own a home and just graduated from Nursing School. I love him very much. I wonder if he does at times. Please help..
