The best rule for Nigerian dating, like most things, to keep religion in the back of your mind, but do not let it sour everything.Many Nigerian women are much less doctrinaire about religion than you would expect in such a conservative culture, and if you are religiously conservative you will probably be surprised by the beliefs of a religiously conservative Nigerian lady.
Thanks to its oil reserves Nigeria is one of the most prosperous nations in Africa.
Unfortunately that prosperity does not help the vast majority of Nigerians; as with many African nations there is a dizzying divide between the rich and the poor.
On an international stage Nigeria has a pretty poor track record (one of the lowest in the world in fact) in gender equality and women are often not even allowed to go out in public without their husbands being with them - Nigeria is a male dominated society full stop.
Unfortunately domestic violence and rape in Nigeria are all too common so Nigerian girls are usually looking for more stable, more loving and more productive lives with foreign men.
Most people think the capital of this African nation is Lagos but it's actually Abuja , although Lagos is one of the larger cities in the country.
Like many African nations Nigeria was once colonized by Europeans (namely the United Kingdom) but gained independence in 1960 from that same European power.
You'll find that the appearance and behavior of Nigerian women will depend on what part of the country they live in.
Women living in the North, for example, will be followers of the Islamic faith and it's rare to see a female Nigerian Muslim any further than a few feet from her husband.
It seems very simple until you are involved in a relationship, so take some time to understand the culture before you get serious about a sexy African girl.
