There are so many misconceptions about the dating world our spotlight is cast on Nigeria. In this modern era, dating can be compared to changing a shirt you don’t like and trying on a new one to see if it fits.
It is not surprising that Nigerian men have these dating misconceptions, after all the belief is that there are more men than women all over the world and most women are desperate. Hence, they would fall for any man who even looks at them let alone ask them out on a date.
Here are four common misconceptions Nigerian men have about dating
Misconception 1: When a guy & lady go out on a date, after the food & drink, the guy invites the lady to his house or hotel room. The guy erroneously believes that after feeding the lady, she has to pay him back by having sex with him. (Yes on the first date, I have seen it happen so many times).
Misconception 2: When the man & woman has been dating for some time; the man (and the woman in some case) would expect the lady to come to his house and be his unpaid maid after all he is dating her. ( dude it is not her job to cook and clean for you, yes, yes if she loves you, she can show it by doing such stuff for you, I repeat is not her job and duty. She isn’t married to you!).
Misconception 3: most men on the first date talk about marriage, they say things like they are not looking for a casual relationship, and they are out for marriage”. (Eyes rolling, seriously dude that’s a cliché, think up something better). Sadly some girls fall for this. A case in point, an uncle of mine I know has so used this line and it works for him every time, leading a parade of girls to his slaughter room sorry bedroom.
Misconception 4: everything which comes out of a guy’s mouth on the first date, chances are that they are all carefully woven lies. Although this is common to both men and women.
So guys do be careful, this common misconception can cost you a good nice lady.
