Maybe Kim Kardashian Should Try an African Man: 8 Reasons to Date an African Man

By now you’ve probably heard the news: Kim K is getting a divorce after 72 days of marriage to Kris Humphries. It’s interesting that I wrote about Kim’s marriage to Kris just a few weeks ago, and how women should take note of how to get down the aisle within a decent amount of record time. Kim is famous for dating black men, and though these may be great guys, perhaps she’s not dating the right type of black man. Madamenoire recently listed eight reasons to date an African man:, and I think Kim should take note. I have to agree with the author of this article when they say that, “For some, the idea of dating an African man conjures up a lot of myths and fears like the image of the over-controlling man.” However, there ARE great African men out there; make sure to join to find some of them!

Below are snippets of the list. Enjoy!

1. They are chivalrous 

“It’s that simple. They have good manners and a strong sense of chivalry – something that is quickly eroding amongst all our home-grown American men… So don’t worry, he’ll for sure be a gentleman and pay for your first date, second date, etc. We know that sounds like common courtesy but these days, it’s no guarantee.”

2. They are the cream of the crop

“If you’re dating someone from Africa, most likely he went through a lot to make it [to the US] and that’s a testament to his work ethic and his sense of commitment for paving a better future for himself and his family. Hardworking? Check!”

3. They have a more balanced perspective

“Poverty and civil wars plague many countries in Africa, giving many a more balanced perspective on life than most Americans who are used to a certain, comfortable standard of living. A man who doesn’t take life for granted is someone who has his principles in order.”

4. You’d get to travel

“Chances are your potential African boo not only has family and friends back in his homeland, but also has folks all over the world like Dubai, London, Australia and Germany.”

5. They know how to cook

“They might have been spoiled by their moms [sisters, and aunts] growing up, but they sure paid close attention to [those] recipes growing up. So go ahead, enjoy his egusi, chicken yassa or pilau.”

6. They’re neat

“Okay, so I’m going off personal experience here but a lot of the men I know who were raised in Africa are super neat. Maybe that ties into the principle of not taking anything for granted, being resourceful, and being grateful for the things that hard-earned money can buy.”

7. Your children will get to learn a second language and be exposed to another culture

“Your future … children will get to be exposed to another culture and maybe also a new language by practicing with their father and spending summers with their paternal grandparents.”

8. You’ll inherit a big crazy fun family 

“It may be expensive to hold down a large family but lord knows big families are a lot of fun. Not only will you have a lot of in-laws to entertain over the holidays and many social functions to attend but your children will get to visit cousins all over the world.”

I find it quite interesting to read the comments at the end of this article. So, what are your reasons for dating African men?
