Nigerian journalist Deji Faremi has taken to his Twitter page and posited that Nigerian men enjoy dating down.
Dating down in this context means being in a relationship with someone who is not on the same level as you financially and according to Deji Faremi, all the talk about dating up to level scores is just nonsense.
He pointed to the fact that pride, ego, and weaponizing financial power over women won’t let men date up, and dating down herein means the entire package, however, he reckons that sometimes dating down could be down to perspectives.

Then, when you have a stable life flourishing for you, they think you’re too wise, uncontrollable and too independent for them. Then, they go and find someone they can control, someone who can depend on them. What do y’all really want??”
