From an aesthetic point of view Nigerian women are predominantly dark skinned but again with English, Portuguese, Spanish and other European influences you will notice a pretty broad cross-section of looks and skin tones.
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.
In the larger cities, such as Lagos and the capital, Abuja, Nigerian women are much more likely to be highly educated and much more in tune with the broader world, but many Nigerian ladies living in more rural areas are likely to much less educated and in tune with modern western culture.
In the South Nigerian women are a bit more liberated and with a massive divorce rate in the country you’ll find that the vast majority of single Nigerian women are very interested in becoming Mrs. Somebody, and as soon as they possibly can.
Most Nigerian brides will usually be pretty conservative by the standards of the United States and Europe and they will also usually expect that you fulfill the traditional male role. Normally, that means they expect that you are willing to be a leader within the family and the breadwinner.
You may believe that you want to find a beautiful African bride with traditional views, but different cultural practices can cause a lot of friction within a relationship. 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.
Don’t Worry about Language Barriers
Nigeria has a reputation for being one of the most ethnically diverse countries in Africa and with 36 states, 250 separate ethnic groups, speaking over 500 active languages you might think you’re in for a rough ride when it comes to communicating.
- †Fortunately the official language of Nigeria is English and the fact that Nigeria only gained its independence in 1960 means that you’ll find English is still spoken by the vast majority of people and of course in all the hotels, airports, ports and other places where communicating matters the most. It also means that dating a Nigerian should be a very straightforward process.
