Hi everyone I am a African-American woman who is dating a Nigerian man. I am open to all positive and honest comments nothing negative please!!! I'm in a current relationship that's been ongoing for about 3 months which was established through Facebook. He inbox me we started conversing and 3 months later we are still conversing. He is an awesome guy or at least that's what I think he's like everything that a woman would want in a man; handsome smart, loving, respectful, hardworking,and loves God. I'm a single mother so basically I have a ready-made family he acknowledges that and he's totally comfortable with the situation he also states that he would like to have more kids of his own.We recently made our relationship public on FB,, Our online relationship is wonderful;texting, facebook, video calling,constant communication. I'm like what more can I ask for!!! He wanted to make sure that I have constant communication with his family in the United States he has an 2 uncles that live in the states and auntie we have very good communication. I video chat with him I also communicate with his relatives I've talked to several of his friends,cousins,uncle,auntie, grandma,etc. He wanted me to know that he was a genuine guy and that he wasn't playing any games so that was his way of proving it he's also even went to the extent of sending me his passport and his identity card as well. I've never doubted anything that he's ever told me he's been very honest and upfront. I'm the kind of woman that will ask a question and come back 3 to 4 weeks later and ask the same question again just to see if I'm going to get the answer and it's been the same for the last 3 months. He told me that his profession is Marine in the Nigerian Army that he's never been married and he's never bore kids of his own. He never asked me for any money but I did volunteer to send him $80 after him telling me that he didn't get paid from his job and how the government is very corrupt so basically like they're working for free. I've never had reason to think that he's trying to scam me he doesn't give me that impression!!!! I'm currently planning a 3week trip to go visit him in Nigeria around December which will make 12 months that we've been dating During our conversation we were discussing the trip and he mentioned that he would need to get a vehicle because of safety concerns he does not want to be riding around in a taxi when I come visit. He asked me if I can go half with him and helping him get a vehicle and that he would in return resell the car and give me my funds back before I leave. I must admit I've been a little bothered about this but I do understand that his funds are very limited. He also stated that he will be asking for my hand in marriage when I come to visit. I am aware that he does not have citizenship and that he does want to gain citizenship so that he can enroll in the US Army. He makes me feel like a queen I like nobody else in the world is there but I me how do I know if this man is scamming me I don't want to be hurt,
I love him dearly, how do I know.
