We are a nation of 'loving' people! Every single feeling one has for the opposite gender is termed 'love'! Words like lust, attraction, like, intimacy, admiration etc are put under one word LOVE in Nigeria.

Yes! Even when you are just admiring his shoes or shirt!
'I love you die' sounds better than 'Nice shoes you have!'

You are making a big mistake. I love you in Nigeria has various meaning than what it is in WEST.

It a cultural thing. You need to grow up in Nigeria to appreciate it what are embedded inside it.

@Otawa
Yes o! Easier to keep it simple than to waste time trying to separate the feelings into where they actually fit.
BTW I love you!

Re: Its Funny How Nigerians Use The Word Love by hbabe(f): 2:15pm On Feb 27, 2010
@Otawa
Love all the way the Naija style, its the only way to go! Let me state an example, I get to a party looking real good and a Naija guy walks up to me and says 'you look great, girl. I love you!'. A non Nigerian wwould have been confused but as a Naija girl I knew my Naija brother was telling me he admired me in the outfit.

Hmmm
That was light years ago! I discovered Accopen and we have been together ever since! And of course I love him! Hehehehe

Re: Its Funny How Nigerians Use The Word Love by Nobody: 2:58pm On Feb 27, 2010
How about someone telling you that within seconds of setting eyes on you? I don't believe in love at ist sight so that's just plain old lust. In the mean time, I love you all kiss kiss kiss
Re: Its Funny How Nigerians Use The Word Love by essarios(m): 3:45pm On Feb 27, 2010
