Top 10 Things Nigerian Girls Say Instead Of ‘I Love You’

Top 10 things Nigerian girls say instead of I love you

Nigerian girls loves attention but they love ‘shakara’ (I’m sure you know what this means)

Okay, if you don’t understand, let me explain what the word means.

Shakara means they love to do the hard to get thing, even if they love you deeply.lessly in love with you, they still front and play hard to get.

Nigerians girls are not used to saying the word ‘I love you’ directly but they just know how to give the signals.

Here are some of the hints they love to say to show that they are in love with you.

1. ‘Ode’

This is not an insult, it’s actually a Nigerian girl’s way of love-playing with you or should I call it love- teasing or would it sound better with love-abuse.

Anyway, whatever way you choose to call it, the word is embedded with love.

2. ‘ I don’t want your girlfriend to come and break my head o!’

This is often said by many Nigerian girls. She says this to know if you have a girlfriend.

So, be mindful of your response to this statement.

3. ‘Is there light in your house?’

This means they are willing to come over to your place since you did not ask them to come, first.


4. ‘Big head’

Sometimes, instead of calling you ‘ode’, they’ll use ‘big head’. It is also a term of endearment.


5. ‘You can’t even call somebody’

This one is code for ‘I miss you’ or ‘talk to me often’

6. ‘Go away jare’

When they say this, better stay. Have I told you that Nigerian girls say the opposite of what they mean? Yes! Infact, they are Queens of reverse psychology.


7. ‘Won’t you come and take me out?’

Her way of saying, ‘when are we going on a date?’

8. ‘You just forgot about me’

Another way of saying ‘ I miss you’ or ‘talk or call me more often’.


9. ‘Have you eaten?’

If she asks you this, just know that she really cares about you.

10. ‘I hate you’

If she says this, then she’s head over heels in love with you. You know, I earlier said they say the opposite of what they mean.
