On the list of things that break my heart…this is a guide for non-Jamaican (black apparently need not apply) women who want to date yardies. It’s all about what compromises to make, what bullshit to swallow with a smile, and how important it is to keep your “crevices’ freshly cleaned at all time.
Never cheat on him! This is also very important! Jamaican women tend to have too much class, or non at all. You don’t want to mimic the behavior of the ones that have non at all. For the traditional self-respecting Jamaican woman, sleeping around, or “free for all fornication” is a no-no. So be sure if you did, or you do cheat on him, DONT LET HIM KNOW. That is if you expect to marry this guy.
And, yeah, if you’re Jamaican you might be wondering if Empress Yuajah tells you to let him cheat—she does say on her web page that he needs his time away from you for his friends and family (of whom you’re not? Of course you’re not stuck together forever, but the wording does isolate you from his life in a weird way) and I really do wonder if the book goes into more details. But not enough to buy it. She does not get my dosh.
