I’ve spent a lot of time around people of that culture to learn a thing or ten.
Well, my grandparents, aunts and uncles are Jamaican.
So what is this Yankee girl going to tell you about dating a Jamaican.
And in my short life, there are few things I’ve picked up when it comes to relationship dynamics.
So if you’re thinking about dating a Jamaican man or you just want to be entertained for the next couple of slides, let’s dive in.
Before we get down to the nitty, gritty can we just agree that not all Jamaican men, or all men in general for that matter, are the same.
But let’s be real, what ethnic group of men can we not say that about?
Just like anybody else there are the good and the bad. But I also know Jamaican men, both inside and outside of my family, who treat their partners like queens.
Do I know Jamaican men who have treated their women with little to no respect? They’ve sacrificed to make life better for their wives and their children.
How a man treats a woman has very little to do with his country of origin and more about how he was taught to treat women by the men and even women who raised him.
Were it the plot of a schmaltzy Hollywood movie, most people would consider the storyline way too far-fetched.
