Many Nigerians believe that a man should be older than a woman in a relationship because they believe that the man should be the head of the relationship both age-wise. When dating a younger man in Nigeria, your challenges begin with his mom and family members. But if there is anything everyone will agree on, is the fact that things are beginning to change, things that were once frowned upon are now becoming the norms.
To some extent, the attitude towards women dating younger men in Nigeria had begun to thaw, but they still seem a long way before the idea flows into all cultures and becomes truly mainstream.
Experience has shown that there are great advantages when women disregard age and go for men they love, but of course, a coin has two sides, so in this article, we will be revealing to you some disadvantages of women dating a younger man in Nigeria.

Family challenges are one of the disadvantages of dating a younger man in Nigeria. Many Nigeria families find it unacceptable for sons who had decided to marry an older woman and that discontent and disapproval are always more vocal from the parents.
If a survey of Nigerian parents is conducted, the answers gotten from them will likely confirm this.
2) Relationship problems might get blamed on the age difference
When dating a younger man in Nigeria, relationship problems might get blamed on age differences. Because when issues happen one of the partners will link it to the age difference and where they should be communicating on solving relationship issues, they will be struggling with the bitterness that tends to come from saying hurtful things about age.
3) people will talk
This is another disadvantage of dating a younger man in Nigeria. Of course, people in society will talk because far too many people are still yet to come to terms with the idea of younger men and older women genuinely falling in love, so they still assume that one partner has an ulterior motive for deciding to be with the other. Some might even say the older woman is the sugar mummy of the younger man.
