Jamaican dating customs 1920 s dating
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.You know what they say, the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach.I don’t know if I can honestly say that Jamaican men are more unfaithful than any other type of man out here. But my “auntie” was right, you can’t stop a grown man from stepping out.But you can decide whether or not you’re going to accept it.Another time, my male cousin came out of the bathroom holding his pants up around his waist because he didn’t have a belt. I can’t be completely honest about this subject without addressing the notion that Jamaican men just can’t seem to keep it at home.And my grandmother looked at him and asked, “Is what you holding heavy? I’ve asked the women on my Jamaican side of the family if they believe it’s true that women just accept that their men are going to cheat.And in the case of the Jamaican man, that food needs to come from your stove, oven.Bringing home a greasy bag of something is not quite going to cut it.
And in my short life, there are few things I’ve picked up when it comes to relationship dynamics.That might not be so much of the case when you’re dating a Jamaican man. It may just mean you were invited to that particular party.And another young lady may show up at the next one.And the husband’s response was: “Yeah right, of your mouth.” They had this conversation in front of a car full of people and it was funny.But the American side of me knew there were people who would cringe at such a “crass” conversation.
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.
