  • Jamaican Men-Their Passion and Love

    Jamaican men are admired throughout the world. This is no secret , the men of the small Island in The  Caribbean are so warmly received and noticed.Could this be a result of the confidence they display ? or the strength that is clearly seen within them? Could it be the leadership qualities that most are gifted with ?or maybe,just maybe that sexy low toned accent that has heads turning when they open their mouths. Jamaican men clearly stand out,because of their many great qualities and talents.

    PASSION OF JAMAICAN MEN-Jamaican men are very passionate about their various interests. Although passion is an individual trait ,Culture plays an important roll in certain behavior.

    FAMILY-is closest to a Jamaican man’ heart.His mother,father,siblings,wife,significant other and children are placed at the front of his life.He will never sit back and allow anyone to hurt or to disrespect the  people in his life.Jamaican men hold a dear place in their hearts always for their mothers, and feels like they have the responsibility to take care of her as long as she is alive. Mama’s cooking is usually a comforting treat.The bond between mom and sons are usually inseparable and ladies who come into these men’s live should embrace the relationship between the man and his mother or this could be the beginning of a long battle and unhappiness.

    Jamaican men protect their wives and children like a hawk over her young one.Their wives are like a trophy placed on a high shelf ,that can only be looked at but not touched by anyone else. Their children are their little jewels that causes sparkles in their eyes and are constantly protected.

    HIS VEHICLE-Jamaican men take great passion in the vehicle of their choice. No matter the cost,once they own that vehicle ,it is treated with dignity and pride.He spend a great deal of time and money on his vehicles ,ensuring that it is properly maintained and looks its best.The emphasis are usually placed on ,the tires ,the rims,the music,engine upgrade and the interior design.The  Jamaican men are usually very detailed in cleaning and maintaining their vehicles.

    HIS BOYS OR HIS BUDDIES- Jamaican men need time with their best friends and buddies.Usually this is the time they let their guards down and become boys,letting go of the stress and demands that comes with their various responsibilities,This time with the guys are usually spent with a few beers,liquors and food.The guys’ fun time sometimes include watching a game of some sport,playing dominoes or cards or just hanging out to talk.The atmosphere is usually filled with humor , laughter and carefree conversations.The Jamaican man is usually loyal to his close buddies and often forms a brother like bond with his friends for years.

    ADMIRATION OF BEAUTIFUL WOMEN-Jamaican men enjoys admiring beautiful women. He is usually never afraid to let her know he admires her beauty,even if he is already in a serious relationship.He however never mixes fun admiration with real love.Love to a Jamaican man is taken very seriously.A Jamaican man does not use the words ” I LOVE YOU’ loosely.Women can know if a Jamaican man really loves them by his actions and he definitely will tell you when he is in love with you.Another way he displays his feeling of being in love is that he showers you with undivided attention and care.Admiration from a Jamaican man can be forceful and can be easily be mistaken for love,but if taken slowly a woman can detect his real motive quite easily.

    REAL LOVE –  Although love comes at various age,guys usually feel deeply for a girl as early as 16-20years old(sometimes even earlier).At this stage, he feels that this is the girl of his dream and wife to be.At this early stage ,girls are usually a bit more flirty and is enjoying the sudden admiration and attention she is getting from various admirers.This behavior many times lead to broken hearts and hurt for the guys .The guy then move forward guarding his heart ,feeling he can join in the game of flirting ,while playing it safe,not getting seriously involved in one relationship.The guy then begins this pattern of flirting and is then branded as ”A PLAYER”.This player label is worn for sometime and often times lead to major issues later in a more serious  relationship.While some Jamaican men continue the player attitude for their whole lives,most men mature and settle down, after going around the block a few times or as they would say “When they find the right lady”.

    The Jamaican man likes the woman to take things slow at first.He put his woman to the test by her actions during their early dating stage.The Jamaican man even though very modern ,is very old fashioned when it comes on to a serious relationship.Even though he might be around the block a few times himself , he does not take very seriously ,a woman who has been around the block a few times or is still going around the block,This is a no-no for Jamaican men.Their test in the beginning is to prove that their woman will not be easily lured in by another man.He likes a little resistance and mystery from a woman in the beginning of a relationship,therefore sex on the first or second date and the woman’s entire life story, very rarely would lead to marriage or a very serious relationship.The Jamaican man looks for a caring attitude and stable character in a woman during the early dating stage to know if she might be the right one for him .

    The Jamaican man will marry the woman he falls in love with. This woman usually is confident,a woman who makes him feel secure in the relationship,a woman who gives him a lot of attention and shows interest in the security of his finances,who gives him his space when he has that need ,who respects him and allows him to be himself,who is family oriented  and who stands by his side through thick and thin.

    A woman will know if the Jamaican man really loves her, when he starts to include her in his plans for the future.Another tell tale sign is when he takes her to meet his family and close friends.A major sign is when he starts confiding in her about his feelings,finances,failures and achievements. When he starts including her in his fun activities and his daily life is wrapped around her,then she is in a great place ,in his heart ! The woman can also know if she is taken very seriously when she is asked to play a more active roll in his daily life. The Jamaican man shows the woman he loves her by putting her before his personal feelings and even before his friends and family.He is certainly in love with the woman when he refers to her as is woman or his wife. Usually the Jamaican man gets very relaxed around the woman he loves , he feels he can trust her and also be himself without harsh criticisms. As He becomes more comfortable  he says he loves her more frequently.The guessing is out of the question when she sees the passion in his eyes as he expresses his love to her  with great admiration.

    COMMITMENT – The next step with the Jamaican man is commitment. This is not a very easy step for him as he takes it very seriously and sees it as a ”till death do we part” step. He usually shows with an engagement ring or a marriage proposal.However ladies some Jamaican men might need a little reminder in that direction as not all are hopelessly romantic. Our article ,  How to stay married to a Jamaican Man” reveals important steps how to have a long and lasting love , and how to enjoy heaven while on earth living with a Jamaican man.


    How to keep a great marriage with a Jamaican man

    Is there prejudice against darker skin Jamaican women ?








    The plantation regime of slavery had a major impact on the Jamaican society long after the the abolition of slavery.The lighter the skin ,the more valuable you were during slavery and even today,after coming  such a long way, that mentality still stands.

    As recent as the 1960’s,dark skin Jamaican women were not the faces you would normally see serving in the banks,at the airline counters,at the hotel counters or at any of the higher positions in larger companies. It was well accepted that the place for the darker skin Jamaican women was certainly not in the better or more top jobs. This took a major toll on the self esteem of Young black Jamaican women,who accepted the position of living as a second class citizen.Darker skin women during the 1960’s did not bother much with higher education for various reasons, such as affordability,self worth, having babies,not enough schools for higher education and not much in the future regarding better jobs.

    The early 1970’s saw a new beginning and a turn in the direction regarding skin colour. A young politician by the name of Micheal Manley(very light complexion man)became the Prime minister of Jamaica and spoke out strongly regarding prejudice against the darker skin Jamaicans.He constantly preached about equality among all skin colour.Mr. Manley himself fell in love with and married Beverley Manley, a dark skinJamaican woman, who sported an  afro .Micheal Manley was well loved  among Jamaicans and was able to get his message across to many.Self esteem among darker Jamaicans on a whole was on a high. Slogans like-PROUD TO BE BLACK and BLACK IS BEAUTIFUL were extremely popular.Songs included words like EMANCIPATE YOURSELVES FROM MENTAL SLAVERY,NONE BUT OURSELVES CAN FREE OUR MINDS(Bob Marley) and YOUNG GIFTED AND BLACK (made popular by Bob Andy and Marcia Griffiths were soaring on the charts in the 1970’s.Darker skin women were getting a boost of self esteem. They were ”proud to be black” and sported  their neat afros ,dressed confidently in their pedal pushers,mini skirts and hot pants.The faces that greeted customers at the service desks,banks and persons who represented companies as senior staff and managers were now including a number of Dark skin Jamaicans.As people became more aware of their self worth, education became a priority.


    You have to have one or all of the following to be socially accepted. Money,Education,Lighter complexion.Although Jamaica had never lost the whole stigma of the fair skin Jamaicans being the superior,The darker skin Jamaicans had become very aware that if they educate themselves, they could achieve greatness and become whatever they want to be.Black Jamaicans are now Bank Managers,Hotel Managers and owners,Doctors, Teachers,business owners and Might I say Prime minister !!Education has played quite an important roll in the lives of black Jamaicans who started achieving more,becoming bosses and professionals.


    What could have brought on the recent craze for lighter skin among dark skin Jamaicans especially women !! . This activity is identified mostly among the poorer class and the less educated. Could this be that the quest to be socially accepted has left them with no other choice ?The poorer class obviously has no money ,without money it is hard to get a higher education !! So the lightening of the skin might be the easiest of the three !! This certainly is no excuse for bleaching of the skin, as this is an extremely dangerous practice ,which can negatively affect ones health.


    The darker skin women are losing the battle against the lighter skin women in the quest for love.Jamaican men seem to much favour the ”brownings”(women with lighter complexion) and women of different race with lighter complexion.It is very obvious to see the pride and adoration in the faces of some black men when they walk down the street hand in hand with a light complexion woman !! One explanation given to me by a black man was ”Black women do not groom themselves as well and things like going to the gym and spa are not very common among them”. A very famous DJ unleashed a monster among Jamaicans when he released the popular song-”mi love mi car mi love mi bike mi love mi money an ting, but most of all mi love mi browning ”. That popular song (although very catchy and I must admit ,I danced to the beat a few times)took us back several years, as many Jamaican men felt and still feel the need to follow suite.


    The future looks very promising for the Dark skin Jamaican women,who have gotten far ahead in life, becoming Lawyers,doctors,Bank managers, Hotel managers even Prime minister,Achieving Bachelors ,Masters and PhD degrees.The future looks very bright, however loyalty from Jamaican Black men would be good .Most Black women are confident enough not to be needy ,but to move forward to where they are appreciated and needed






     Jamaican men their- Passion and love

    Back to main page



    Many articles are written about how to get a ‘JAMAICAN MAN’, but it is also extremely important to know how to maintain the relationship and keep the man in your life .Many Jamaican men are afraid of taking the step towards marriage because they feel ” THE WOMAN CHANGES ONCE SHE GETS THE RING ”. Yes ,sometimes women take things for granted and some women are very immature in their actions,however,most times poor communication and misunderstanding are the main culprits that lead to the road of separation. Below are some of the things women need to keep in mind to maintain a great marriage to a Jamaican man .

    1) LISTEN- The first year in a marriage is ” THE GETTING TO KNOW EACH OTHER YEAR”.It is the year you get to learn the most about your partner. Although you will continue to learn about him as the years go by, the first year is when you are most taken aback by his different moods and actions, re-actions and general personality.Jamaican men basically communicate  more during the dating stage and the beginning of marriage.LISTEN WELL and ask questions if you are not sure.Women who do not listen well and/or do not pay much attention to what he says,you will miss out and suffer the consequences later.He will shut down after he feels you are not very sensitive to his needs or desires(not that he is selfish, but he thinks if you love him you will try to do the things he likes).Most Jamaican men are extremely family oriented and will not be quick to get a divorce, however he can totally shut down while remaining in the matrimonial home.The Jamaican man will tell you his likes and dislikes but he will not repeat himself constantly !! So remember ladies, our first line of duty is to LISTEN !! He will certainly not have the same discussion over and over !

    2)COMMUNICATE- The next step to have a great marriage to a Jamaican man is to learn to communicate well. Our Jamaican men are not the most patient of men and will get frustrated very easily. You however can have him loving you even more and wanting to be around you more if he feels connected and free to be himself. It is very important for a woman not to attack her husband when he says something she does not like or approve of.It is extremely hard sometimes to control our emotions but it is very important to do so.Never sweep bad feelings under the carpet,just choose the appropriate time to talk.Most discussions can be had in the bedroom,just before bed (especially if kids are in the home).Try never to go to bed angry with each other.If the problem needs more time to solve it, make a date to do so, going out for a drink  , dinner or even a walk,can be a very relaxing way to talk more and come to an understanding with disagreements.The main thing is to give each other time to talk while the other listens .Put yourself in the other partner’s shoe and ask ” how would I feel” ? Getting respect from his woman is at the top of a Jamaican man’s list. Never talk to a Jamaican man as if you are in charge, always be submissive ,however have it all together. Know exactly what you want and stick to the point (Do not keep straying on things he did the months before).

    3)BE A GREAT HOMEMAKER-A Jamaican man takes pride in his home. His home is his castle where he is the king and likes to have peace. Home is where he comes to re-charge ,relax and be himself .He does not like to come home and have to face an argument or a disgruntled face.He enjoys coming home to a beautifully put together woman with welcoming arms who is happy to see him. Jamaican men enjoys coming home to a very clean house and also appreciate a delicious meal. They like a wife who cooks well and entertains well .This practice is his idea of having  an excellent homemaker and wife.He also likes it when his wife cares a great deal for his health

    4)FIND OUT HIS SLEEP ROUTINE-One very important thing couples need to look out for ”what time clock is your partner on ”. This is not taken into consideration  by many and has caused many separations.Some people are morning people, which means they are more alive ,alert and vibrant in the mornings.The morning person gets up very early in the mornings and can sometimes be insensitive to the sleeping needs of the other person.They sometimes feel the need to discuss some very important things early in the morning,which would at that time not be processed properly by the other spouse who is trying to sleep or relax in bed.Sometimes the feeling of rejection can start to brew if one partner’s conversation is taken lightly in this case, or if their sexual advance and desires are brushed aside.The same thing happens when one partner is a night person and the other is not,The night person might feel like he/she is being rejected ,not getting enough attention and not being loved ultimately.Once this part of the relationship is sorted out and couples can compromise ,a huge weight can be lifted off the shoulders of the marriage.

    5)LOOK OUT FOR HIM-Jamaican men like it when their women “HAVE THEIR BACKS”. Never discuss him in a negative way with your best friends or family members.Never crack jokes about him in a negative light or expose his downfalls to others.This lets him feel less of a man and not comfortable around you. If your partner is the type of person who likes the spotlight ,say  things to uplift him ,when around others.Pay attention to his interests ,hobbies and goals in life , be supportive at all times.Always let it be known to him and others that you are on his side.Always wait until you get home to let him know if you totally disagree with him on a particular matter.

    6)LET HIM BE THE MAN- Jamaican men like to be in charge of the family. Their actions might not show it at times, but they have the need to constantly” WEAR THE PANTS”. They are usually filled with pride  and cares what people think of them regarding being the head of the house.Let him have equal input on major decisions regarding the house,the family and finance.Be affectionate and gentle to him, yet strong and assertive when the need arise . The Jamaican ,man although he likes to be in charge loves a strong woman.

    7)MAINTAIN YOUR APPEARANCE-Like every other man,the Jamaican man is very proud when his wife ”FIXES UP HERSELF” (looks good all the time)After all ,it was one of the reason he was first attracted to you ! Even when finances are not up to scratch,groom your hair in an attractive fashion,take the time to wear some make up and wear clothes that fits well. Many women tend to eat more during stressful times and therefore put on weight,never go out and buy new clothes to fit into after a weight gain.Work out at the gym or take long walks to shed those extra pounds !! Always maintain good hygiene ,wear his favourite perfumes and ALWAYS,ALWAYS wear great lingerie.

    8)INTIMACY – The lock to a great marriage! Every thing else can close that door but if you really want a secure and firm relationship , the extra bolt on that door  would be great intimacy with him. A Jamaican man enjoys extra attention and will get it from somewhere !! So make sure it comes from you !!Intimacy does not start in the bedroom  !! always remember ,you have to make him feel like the man ,be the sexiest you can be,listen to him,communicate well,have his back,be a great homemaker and you will have his heart.Let him feel you submit to him,look in his eyes with great passion when you talk to him and remind him you are his baby(no matter how old you are).When a Jamaican man feels he can trust you and there is passion he will give himself,his heart and his soul to you.Sex is of utmost importance to the Jamaican man,however when it comes to his special woman he prefers the term” making love”. Love making is the ultimate gift between a man and his wife,the Jamaican man has no reservation when it comes to that special time.When a Jamaican man is happy and content he can create heaven here on earth for you.

  • History of Jamaica from 600-present(a look back)

    History of Jamaica 600-1494

    The Tainos

    The Tainos were early inhabitants of the northern Caribbean who are thought to have arrived in Jamaica around 600 AD. This Arawak-speaking group originated in South America, migrating first to the southern Caribbean, then northward by canoe as they were displaced by the more aggressive Carib people. Tainos were a peaceful fishing and hunting people who gave Jamaica its original name Hamaika, which means “Land of Wood and Water”.

    History of Jamaica 1494-1655
    Culombus and Spanish settlement

    Christopher Columbus arrived in Jamaica on May 6, 1494 in search of gold which he never found. He claimed the island for the King and Queen of Spain. This ushered in a period of Spanish settlement which lasted from 1509 to 1655. The first 30 years of settlement saw the Tainos becoming almost extinct due to disease, slavery and malnutrition.


    Pedro Plains, St. Elizabeth

    The Spanish established ranches on the southern plains, and were responsible for the introduction of cattle, pigs, chickens, horses, cats and dogs. They also introduced the important economic crops sugar cane, bananas and citrus.

    In 1513 the first African slaves arrived to work as hunters and herders of wild horses, cattle and pigs, and in the small sugar mills which the Spaniards had established.

    The island was called Xamayca, and Spanish Town was established as capital.

    History of Jamaica 1655-1834
    British Capture and Settlement


    In May 1655 the British invaded Jamaica, a poorly defended and thinly populated Spanish colony. There followed over 300 years of British rule, which saw the following:


    • the Spanish being expelled by 1670 after 5 years of guerilla warfare
    • the emergence of the Maroons, escaped slaves who banded together to become a major deterrent in Britain’s quest to control the island
    • the establishment of large sugar plantations
    • the growth of a huge African slave workforce to satisfy the needs of the sugar plantations
    • the establishment of the Church of England as the state church
    • the rise of Port Royal as the richest and “wickedest city” and its literal fall into the sea in 1692
    • the arrival of Moravian, Baptist and Methodist missionaries seeking to convert the slaves
    • the name “Xamayca” anglicised as “Jamaica”



    Anglican Church Jamaica

    Slavery conditions in Jamaica were among the harshest in the New World. This led to many brutal slave revolts, which were crushed with equal brutality. The British slave trade was abolished in 1807, but slavery continued for another 30 years before being fully abolished on August 1, 1838.

    History of Jamaica 1838-1962
    Emancipation to Independence

    After emancipation, many of the ex-slaves left the plantations and moved into the hills. The sugar estates needed labour, so Chinese and Indians came as indentured labourers to replace ex-slaves.

    The ex-slaves barely subsisted on farming. Those who continued to work on the plantations could barely support their families. New banana estates offered jobs, but little social mobility. As a result, many moved to the city where generations have remained without skills, jobs or housing.

    Jamaicans also went overseas in search of opportunities. To Panama, for the building of the Panama Canal. To the USA, for farm work and work on military bases. To the UK, to fight in World War II, and to rebuild the country after the war.

    After emancipation, ex-slaves remained second class citizens. The planter class continued to direct the country’s affairs, and only the most affluent had a vote. The 1865 Morant Bay Rebellion was a civil rights protest that provoked a brutal response from the authorities. More than 300 people, notably the leader Paul Bogle, were hanged.

    In the early 1900s, the teachings of Marcus Garvey became increasingly popular among the poor, black classes. The Rastafarian movement was inspired by Garvey’s teachings, and came to national attention in the 1930s.

    The poor were still seeking respect for their rights in 1938 when island-wide riots broke out. The result was the setting up of Jamaica’s modern political party system. All Jamaican adults were able to vote in the 1944 elections, and the country was on a path to independence in 1962.

    History of Jamaica 1962 to present
    Independence and after

    Following Independence Day on August 6, 1962 there was a great sense of national pride. Jamaicans were governing themselves, and the growing tourism, bauxite, and coffee industries contributed to a strong economy. The Jamaica Labour Party (JLP) formed the government from independence until 1972.

    Here are some developments from the 1970s and onwards:


    • The People’s National Party (PNP) came to power in 1972. Under Michael Manley radical social reforms were introduced. There were more educational opportunities for all classes, and there was a heightened sense of national and black consciousness.
    • The Rastafarian movement expanded to include intellectuals and middle class youths.
    • Bob Marley pushed Jamaica’s music to international prominence.
    • There was massive migration to Canada and the USA by the middle class, fearful of the PNP’s socialist leanings and ties to Cuba.
    • General election campaigns became violent events. Guns were used by party supporters during the 1976 and the 1980 elections, and have remained as a threat to society since that time.
    • General deterioration of the Jamaican economy, burdened by international debt and a huge import bill.


    In the 21st century, it is estimated that there are as many Jamaicans living abroad as there are in Jamaica. North American culture and values, accessed mainly through cable and the internet, impact our island relentlessly. Yet we manage to maintain our national identity, and our sports, culture and music ensure that Jamaica is known worldwide.





    The wonderful island of Jamaica is located in the Caribbean a region known for its great tropical climate. It is one of the three islands in the Northern Caribbean forming the Greater Antilles. Its noted in our history books that Christopher Columbus discovered Jamaica accidentally, but I’m sure he knew what he was doing when he arrived to this euphoric paradise…READ MORE
