I am concerned because what I may be taking as offensive or that he is involved with other women may be culturally related to family obligations, and I want to believe the best of him. If they like you will for real, they have no problems with displaying it publicly. learn how to cook ofe egwusi with okporoko and pounded yam (he'll lick both fingers and toes together) 2. make sure he got akwukwo ikikere obodo unu before you move foward, otherwise ojiri gi wee nwee akwukwo ikikere.
This is my first post to this forum, and I am looking forward to meeting lots of people---both Nigerian and Non-Nigerian!
I have been dating an American-born Nigerian man for a few months now, and I care for him very much. I do know that we have a lot of problems communicating sometimes and I think it is because of cultural stuff.
The small ethnic groups living along the coast, such as the Ijaw and the Kalabari, are forced to keep their villages small due to lack of dry land.
Living among creeks, lagoons, and salt marshes makes fishing and the salt trade part of everyday life in the area.
Though there is archaeological evidence that societies have been living in Nigeria for more than twenty-five hundred years, the borders of modern Nigeria were not created until the British consolidated their colonial power over the area in 1914.
The name Nigeria was suggested by British journalist Flora Shaw in the 1890s.
Or their parents have arrange for them to marry a friends's daughter back home. Don't put all of your eggs in one basket, that is what I will tell you. You are so right that the affection is private and not public.
In my case, he has told me he loves me and I can take that to the bank.
I expressed the importance that I hear he loves me and I do hear that from time to time.
We are in a bit of a tough spot because of and ex-spouse and I'm having trouble as an American woman I want to talk it to death, but he is withdrawn and quiet. Hang in there, Nigerian born or culture is different but the man is definately worth it. Perhaps it should be the same, but the person grew up in London and was back and forth to Nigeria, and believe me, there are differences.
This man has done so many things that scream that he loves me--he has told me this once, but we are both scared.
