American Woman Needs Advice about traveling alone to Lagos, Nigeria
Hello, I am a 26 year old American lady from Michigan. I have been talking to a man for almost a year now in Lagos, Nigeria and we have had endless nights of webcam discussions. I can feel and see the sincerity in his face, but I am all to far from naive, that may not always be the case. He has asked me to come to Lagos to visit him and that he would pay for my trip. He has also asked me to marry him while I am there and to build a life there with him. He has told me he has spoken to his Mother about me and told her how much he loves me as well wants me to be his wife. He knows I do not come from a family of wealth. Is it a safe area for me to be traveling alone? Could this be a scam? Is their problems with people trafficking there? I know he is in India for studies right now and is from Nigeria and that's where he wants us to meet. Confused, I dont want social media to influence my perception of a country in whole.
