Nigerian men treat their wives as second in command, they expect their women to be there for them, answer when they call and they always want to make the final decision… be the man
For a woman… not knowing how to cook is a serious crime in Nigeria.

Men in Nigeria believe that a woman is responsible if she is good with domestic works while the ones with very little knowledge and domestic know-how are considered irresponsible
Nigerian Men
A Nigerian boy is expected to leave his father’s house at most by the age of 30, fend for himself and build his own home. If he fails to do so, he would be regarded as an irresponsible man in his own community; Nigerian men are expected to be independent by thirty at most.

A Nigerian man is very hard-working compared to his counterparts in Diaspore because

1. The average Nigerian man believes in a family and the men are expected to take up all the bills at home.

2. The man runs the home irrespective of ‘how much’ the wife is worth.

The Nigerian man is a natural hustler, they go out in the morning and come back in the evening, they don’t usually get fed up with wealth acquisition, that is the one thing American women seem to like so much about Nigerian men, – That they take responsibility and make sure their family as well as their woman is well taken care of.

One said “I love the way African men love their children it is the most beautiful thing I have ever seen, but I can see the boys are more spoiled, that is the truth.”

If you do a search on the internet about “Nigerian men” you would come across very few positive comments and loads of negative stuff about Men from Nigeria, like they are domineering, you hear things like “Nigerian guys are naturally dishonest!,” you will hear the good and you will also hear the bad things about men from western African. Well, I guess that comes with life

But the main question is – Why Nigerian guys in Diaspore go home to marry the accredited innocent and yet un-spoiled girl back in their country instead of the white chick they have been cuddling all year long??

The simple answer to that question is – because they don’t like an independent woman. African men believe that independent women and women with western upbringing are already spoiled and finds it very difficult to cope as tradition demands

Like going into the kitchen everyday to prepare his favorite recipe or give it to them the way they want it on bed. African men in general see the women as a helper who they have to love, pamper and dominate and they want her to remain thus, not another bread winner or some sort of competition.

Clubbing, excessive partying, alcohol is considered highly indecent for a Nigerian wife while the white woman considers them a sort of get-away.
The simple Nigerian girl is willing to submit and be a real wife to an African man, by so doing she enjoys unhindered love and lavish that she initially never bargained for. That’s why a man from Nigeria can fly several miles back home to bring her over, after of course several trial and errors with the white chicks.

A Nigerian women finds savorable love in humility, a quality that Nigerian men are yet to find in women with western upbringing.

Most of the negative things you hear about Nigerian/black men are from white/American women who tell stories of how they got their heart broken and how ruthless heartless they find Nigerian men. I am a Nigerian guy and I don’t care whether you are white, black or even pink once you have the qualities I want in a woman, I am off to the alter with you.

And that brings me to yet another tip about Men from Nigerian – They prefer church wedding to court marriage, in fact, only about 2 percent of all couples in Nigeria had court marriage, the rest follow the normal trend, – introduction, traditional and then church wedding no court nothing.

Dating Nigerian Men

Here is where it goes wrong most of the times… dating a Nigerian guy, white women often find it difficult to cope, they think we are domineering and demanding. Well, that is because we were pretty spoilt back home, In Nigeria, we think the main responsibility of a man is to pay the bills, we can pay all the bill and even more but we don’t wash no dishes, we don’t change no diapers, we pay someone to do that if our wife is gainfully employed.

Women from the western world got “ego” and that is simply why Nigerian men don’t marry far away from home.

Most of the American/European women that are successfully dating Nigerian men either had to adjust or get him to shrink a little bit but that is not always easy, we rather turn the other way than get squeezed a little bit and that is the hard truth.

But frankly, you can date and marry a handsome Nigerian guy any day if you are willing and able to be a good wife.

    That’s it. Nigerian men want to control everything. Even my message is awaiting approval to be published.

    • dave25d  May 12, 2018

      I really don’t think the problem is with the men in your own case, I think you have a serious issue that need sorting out. You plan to go through life unchecked? doing whatever you like.

      • Latasha Hall  August 3, 2018

        I think Nigerians are stupid, angry and very emotional I met one and I say they’re no good with relationships. I could say they’re not good at anything.

        • dave25d  August 13, 2018

          There are over 180 million Nigerians, don’t make such generalization please. I noticed that often you guys are attracted to the bad guys. You meet a man in a strip club and you expect him to be a saint? Stuff like that. Take your time to study a man before commuting, spend time courting each other. If you avoid certain principles you get bitten.

        • Mr Naija Strokes  September 18, 2018

          you couldn’t control him (smile) … Latasha Hall american rude ghetto girl he just didn’t want you seriously .. you were just a belly warmer on bed hun …

          So because of one ☝ Nigerian,you have justified and classified all Nigerians as stupid,angry and too emotional.
          Thank you for say that,the fact is that you don’t know anything about us,just drop the name of your country and hear what people will say…
          We are angry because we were used.
          We’re emotionally because we have love for mankind.
          We’re what you call stupid because you think you know it all,but I bet you,a full time Nja boy go use u shine 50-2=48 like you Latasha Hall…

        • Carew  January 21, 2019

          You met one in around 60,000, 000 and making such a generalisation you must be daft and extremely ignorant.
          Tell me where in the world that is any different generally people are the same grouping often along the lines of socio-economic status. Education and exposure. You need to question why you were attracted to the lowest common denominator I guess it says a lot about you after all birds of the same feather flock together.

    I just started dating a Nagerian man. I think he’s amazing. Such a great personality on him. How ever I know nothing about there culture and traditions. He’s been very patient with me and my constant questions. I have a hard time with the accent. Lol How ever I would really like more advice and I formation about the tribal traditions, I don’t know what’s proper behavior or taboos easpcally in the bedroom.

    • Karen Loretta Johnson  November 9, 2018

      I’m dating one as well he is just precious.

    • Debra  January 27, 2019

      So why don’t you just ask him?

  3. Candace  July 11, 2018

    I completely understand what you are saying, but the most important thing you forgot is love and respect. Once we have the two I would comit to doing anything for u.

  4. Jamia  August 13, 2018

    Not all western women are like that. I was raised to take care of the house (cook, clean, etc). I’m Christian, so I believe the man is the head of the family. I still live with my parents, and probably will until I’m married. Although, the are some minor differences, when I hear about what African woman are like, there are many similarities I share with them – and I’m not the only one 🙂

    No wonder he just leaves the dishes for me even when he’s just sleeping and I just got off work changing the baby’s diaper. Tsk

  7. Ladii Rae  November 29, 2018

    I have been friends with a few Nigerian men as a mixed (black, white) woman. I am NOT your normal American woman where I want to be domineering. I am a God fearing woman and I believe in the “true” creation roles that God has given us.

    I will say, all of the Nigerian men that I have been friends with have been caught in lies even though they professed to be “christians” and god-fearing etc. I am not saying EVERY SINGLE one is like that, but it’s super sad that the ones that have “friend requested” me and we have become friends all start off the same…and slowly I find little things they’ve lied about. I will have to agree with whomever said that ‘most’ are liars (which is why most women try dating outside America.). But for that.. you can just stick with a lying American and save your time and money lol.

  8. Evelynne  December 7, 2018

    I’ve been seeing a Nigerian man for little over a month now and honestly it’s like we’ve known each other for years. He’s wonderful and very patient with me. But we live far from each other. What bothers me is that a few times now he has been accusing me of seeing other men, or berating me like a child. I have a very submissive nature and love a dominating man but this freaks me out a little as I’ve never been treated this way before. After we argue, we make up pretty quickly and he deads the issue, never to be discussed again. What do I make of this? My friends say I should leave but I don’t know…

    • Ivory  December 31, 2018

      Stay clear of this man.Nigerians are very controlling and lack respect for women especially American women.They feel they are Kings and a woman must submit.

      • Buena  January 4, 2019

        ofcourse women must submit.God designed it from the very were born to be the leader, protector provider of the family. and now what is the role of a women? to be their partner, help them, entertain them, love them.I m not saying here that men should abuse their power and bully their women.That is unacceptable.In a relationship,one must be dominant and the other should be submissive.a leader and a follower, that’s how things works.We are not all leaders, if all of us are leaders, who are the followers then?there is no leader if there is no it?just accept the fact that women are queens not Kings.The men hold that tittle.And I’m telling you, that’s what our God want, I am very sure of it.

        • dave25d  February 28, 2019

          You are such a darling. full of wisdom.

  9. Mariya  December 13, 2018

    My friend is Nigerian, he is great person. He married and has 2 kids and always take good care of them. Just his negative point is he cheating on his wife and he is with me.

  10. Antoinette  January 7, 2019

    I’m talking to one as well he’s the most humble and loving man very respectful and appreciate what I have to say I adore everything about him.
