7 Types Of Nigerian Men You’ll Meet In The Dating Pool Abroad

November 25, 2020

If you’re a Nigerian woman living abroad, chances are that you’ve run into one or more of these types of Nigerian men.

1) Mr. qualifications

Before you say anything, they’ll remind you about all their degrees – MBA, PHD, WAP, MD.

2) Green card gang

In your first conversation, they want to know your status in the country. This let’s them know whether to start forming love or not.

3) The stuck up gang

These ones take pride in the fact that they don’t date black women. They date only white women or mixed race people, and they flaunt their preference like an achievement.

4) Mr. “Federal character”

They have “gf” in every state. If your Nigerian man is always travelling for work, check him oh.

5) Politician’s kids

Any small thing: “Do you know who I am?” or they keep trying to tell you who they are.

6) Mr. Looking for African wife

These ones are looking for modern slave to take care of them and clean up after them. They’re always looking for “true African” women. Sorry oh.

7) The marriage guy

According to people, if you cough, they will propose to you. They’re looking for Nigerian wife for their parents.
