Sept 9, 2014 – “I’m Dating A Nigerian Igbo Guy But He Won’t Introduce Me To His Mother” – African-American Lady
African-American Lady Dating A Nigerian Igbo Man Worried He’s Hiding Her From His Family
I have been dating my Igbo guy for 11 months and he has been everything that I wanted in a guy. He communicates with me daily via text/call, we see each other at least 2-3 times a week depending on our work schedule. Last what I love the most is whatever he says he’s going to do he does it. If I need anything he’s there. He does not say I love you often, but he greets me with a kiss every time I see him and he does show affection so I am ok with that.
However my issue is in the 11 months I have known him I have not been to his house, or met any of his family. I know that he works and what he does, but I don’t know where it is located. His mother lives with him right now and he has shared with me that his mother wants him to marry and African woman because his brother married a Jamaican woman and since his parents were in Nigeria at that time they had no say on it.
But now since she lives in the states I assume she wants her opinion to be known. He has shared that he has been getting a lot of backlash from his family about dating an African American woman.
He’s told me that he’s wanted to invite me a couple of times and he would have his mom to cook, but he always changes his mind. His family has impacted at least 50% of his reasons for me not meeting them or visiting his home. I am seeking advice from other African men/women and African American women who have experienced this or know why they are like this.
P.S. He is a citizen now, he obtained his citizenship in 2007 on his own not through marriage. Majority of his family is in the US besides 1 brother and 1 sister. So I am sure he is not trying to scam me, because he has never asked me for a dime.
