10 steps to winning a Nigerian Girl’s Heart on the First Date
You’ve finally scored yourself a date but don’t count those eggs before they hatch just yet. You need to know the intricate details of what it takes to win your date’s heart.
Nigerian girls are special with very high expectations of who they entrust with their hearts. Their preset standards make it easy for them to walk away after a date without looking back. That’s not your aim, right? You want more from her than just a first date, but an actual relationship.
Be not dismayed, MORE is here for you to ensure you get that girl from the moment you say “hello”. Below, we have set out a step by step guide on how to win a Nigerian girl’s heart on the first date.
Step 1: Be Prepared
There’s no better way to ensure the date doesn’t even happen than lack of preparation. The first thing you need to cross off your check list is the location. Where are you going on this date? If you can’t think of something creative you can check out 20 Fun Indoor Date Ideas.
Step 2: Cut your coat according to your cloth
What this means is your actions should suit circumstances or resources. Don’t go overboard because you’re trying to impress her. If you start that way, trust a Nigerian girl to expect you to continue that way. Therefore, keep it according to what you can handle. If she isn’t satisfied with that then she isn’t the one for you. Choose a location you can afford.
Step 3: Groom yourself
Make her confident to want to be around you. Look good and well groomed. There is nothing like one who appears like he wasn’t bothered enough to try to impress her.
Step 4: Arrive on time
Even if she will probably arrive an hour later, you should be on time. The worst thing you can do to mar your first impression is to show up after she does.
Step 5: Be a gentleman
Chivalry, as they say, is dead. But you can bring it back to life. Be a gentleman and I assure you she will forever remember you even if things don’t work out eventually. You can offer to pick her up if you have a car or you can offer to order her an UBER. If this is something you can afford, go for it. If it’s not, leave the gentleman-liness till the actual date.
Step 6: Be thoughtful
Don’t go empty-handed. Since it’s a first date you should earn the key to her heart with a gift as well. Nigerian girls love surprises – including those that say they don’t like them. You don’t have to break the bank with the gift you get. Anything would do as long as it’s a present. Don’t be part of the ‘my presence is a present’ league.
Step 7: Take charge
A Nigerian girl wants to know that you are confident and can handle her. In this regard, you should get your confidence aura working. This can be sensed from the way you talk to her, others and even the way you look at her.
Step 8: Don’t overdo it
In as much as you’re trying to win her over, you don’t want to come off as a desperado. Therefore, take things easy. Don’t stare at her too much where it becomes creepy. Let her talk while you listen, and interject only where necessary.
Step 9: Pay for the date
Even if she invited you out, you should pay for the date. Some Nigerian girls like to offer to pay to show you how independent they are. It’s only right that you offer to pay instead. And if they keep insisting, who are you to reject the offer. Rather than cause an unnecessary argument, you may give in. But don’t forget to make the offer. It’s only expected.
Step 10: KISS
Keep It Short and Simple. Let the date last only a short while. The saying “out of sight” isn’t really “out of mind”. Since you’ve given her enough to see and think about, it’s left for the heart to meet the mind. Don’t overextend the date to a point where she has to do the “fake excuse” bit to bail on you. Be the first to call the date short after all has been said and done.
And if you thought KISS actually meant Kiss, then sure, try that. Lean in a bit and wait for her to meet you halfway. However, this is only advisable if there was chemistry between you during the date. If you get the cold shoulder you can pretend you were going in for the cheeks. A small peck would do.
