Some say dating a Caribbean woman is complicated. Here is a guide to understanding our precious gems a bit more!
10. She loves to party and have a good time
When she goes out, she has a fabulous time. If you don’t know how to dance, she’ll show you.
9. Very passionate when mad
When she is mad, you may not understand what she is saying. It’s a mixture of dialect; English; head, neck and hand movements; and a whole heap of attitude.
8. Expressive eyes
She can roll her eyes at various angles to reveal her emotions.
7. You’ll enjoy her tasty cooking
Food preparation is one elaborate production and her cooking is delicious.
6. She refers to people as “Aunty”, “Uncle” and “Mom”.
She uses “Aunty”, “Uncle”, and even “Mom” regularly. It doesn’t necessarily mean that she is referring to members of her family. It’s a term used to show endearment and respect for elders. For example, a special neighbour or her mom’s friend may be known as “Aunty”.
5. Family means a lot to her
If you’re not from the Caribbean, spending time with family may be a routine relegated to Thanksgiving and Christmas time. A Caribbean woman will introduce you to members of her family and spend lots of time with them, all year round.
4. She has a “sweet mouth” and is hospitable
She likes to use darling, baby, honey, sugar plum, and other affectionate words when speaking. She can meet someone for the first time and will make them feel appreciated and welcomed.
3. Prefers home remedies
When sick, she prefers to use home remedies passed on to her by family members first, before running to the doctor or pharmacy.
2. She is very independent
It’s not that she doesn’t appreciate a man’s support but rather than waiting on a man to get something done, she’ll do it herself. This is how she was raised from childhood.
1.You’ll have an entertaining life
You won’t have a dull moment. You’ll learn dialect, listen to various genres of music and be introduced to other aspects of her vibrant culture.
