As Nigerian Michael Oluwagbemi II writes at Nigerians in America, "All you read about mostly is how Nigerian men are evil, how "some" men are chauvinist, how "they" are demons." Nigerian men are a product of their culture, but they are also individuals. If you want to date a Nigerian man successfully, avoid stereotyping. You must not only respect his cultural background, but also respect his personality, which is as unique as any man's personality, Nigerian or not.Instructions
1. Advertise your desire to date a Nigerian man. Join a reputable Nigerian dating site.

In the 21st century, dating sites save you time. Dating sites include photos and descriptions of people looking for dates. They allow you to zoom in on what you want quickly. If you live in a city that has a sizable Nigerian population, post your ad in your local newspaper or a newspaper that caters to the Nigerian population. Look online for Nigerian websites and post your information in their Personals section. Make initial connections in public places, such as a restaurant. This is the safest place for that first date. Exchange your email address for communication. Avoid releasing your phone number, and especially your address, until after you have met your Nigerian man and you feel comfortable with him.
Invite your Nigerian man over for dinner and cook him a meal. Do this only after you have met him, are comfortable with him and want to learn more about him. Good food is important in the Nigerian culture. Says Oluwagbemi, "...I must say that if you do not know how to cook, and you don't want to learn, you might as well forget hooking up and keeping a Nigerian man." As reported at Maps of the World, "Food of Nigeria includes meat, vegetables, fruits as well as the carbohydrates." You may not know how to make an authentic Nigerian stew, but you can buy good quality meat and fresh fruits and vegetables and prepare your own tasty meal. Chances are he will appreciate your efforts.
Allow him to be a gentleman. Nigerian men are traditionalists. If you balk at the idea of a man opening a car door for you, let that go with a Nigerian man. It is possible to respect yourself as a woman, but still allow him to feel like a man. As African man Chika Onyeani says at Africana Media, "Nigerian men are 'old-school,' which means they buy you drinks, so women need not fret."
