Nigeria is a country where people use WhatsApp on a daily basis and the Nigerian people also use the WhatsApp groups in the means of dating.
Many Nigerians do not like to use dating platforms as they find the platforms very difficult to use and they feel like these platforms are just a burden. These people want to find their date on the platforms they use already, they do not want the hassle of a new platform. That’s when the group feature of WhatsApp comes into play.
Nigerian people also have concerns about dating platforms. Are these dating platforms safe or not, the terms and conditions of these dating platforms are also very much difficult for them to understand. But the privacy and safety issues of WhatsApp are top notch and all the conversation of WhatsApp is end to end encrypted. End to End encryption means no one other than the participants of the conversation can know a single thing about the conversation, not even WhatsApp.
There are also different groups for the different cities of every country. Lagos is a city in Nigeria and there are some dedicated dating groups for Lagos only on WhatsApp. So, if you are looking for a dating partner from the same city then you should join these groups.
These groups are well regulated by the admin panels. So, you will not find any fake people here. These groups are the best alternative of dating platforms.
