She was from Lagos, the biggest city in the country.And she was so religious that the Bible was her constant companion.Being together with such a woman would mean the world to you.You can’t stop if I shared her name with hundreds of thousands of people. And no, I don’t say this with a sarcastic undertone. When I met her during my studies in England, I was at a stage of my life where I wasn’t interested in good girls.

If you’re going to marry a foreigner, marry a white man.” These were the words that fell from my friend’s mother’s mouth when her daughter told her she was dating a Nigerian man because she was tired of Congolese men. ”, said my friend in response, defiantly challenging her mother, to my dismay (anybody knows better than to challenge an African mother! White people “White people don’t have much culture; it’s easy to adapt either way. Was it really for our own good to find our life partners within our own culture?So, I think it’s fair to say that a Nigerian man in his mid 20s to mid 30s who is educated, ambitious, of average to above average looks and just a plain decent guy would have no problem finding a woman who meets his criteria…in Nigeria.
