“The search for how to be romantic to your boyfriend on phone spiked by 250 per cent, while ‘Gift for boyfriend’ was searched 71 per cent more than ‘gift for girlfriend’ in the past week by Nigerians.
“It seems that Nigerian ladies are showing more commitment to lover’s day than the guys.

The firm listed some of the valentine related questions asked by Nigerian on Google to include: “What is love?’, ‘What is the meaning of love?’ and ‘How to know if a guy loves you?’.
Also, ‘How to know if a girl loves you?’ and ‘How to ask a girl out?’
“Nigerians are keen on knowing ‘How to make love?’, as it was one of the top questions asked in the past week.
“Nigerians are definitely eager to impress their loved ones on Valentine’s Day. This is shown in the increase rate of ‘how-to’ searches about Valentine’s Day recently.
