My daughter's father was a "so called" Rastafarian back when I first met him. He would always try to force his opinions & beliefs on me... but when it came to some things I can honestly say he did teach me a lot of valuable things about life in general and most importantly Black pride. But I think it was just a faze he was going through. ..because now he is no longer a Rasta. Now he's a typical "Jim Jones" type New York nicca. Lol

but even if he is not a true "rasta"

and it's basically a hairstyle

would that bother you?  Are you looking for a bonafide Rasta?   Not sure if that is necessary unless you too are a Rasta.

Now if he is so unsure of himself that is posing or fake then that is another story

I have. He was very generous and a lot of fun.  The whole "traditional" thing didn't bother me. I'm from the south and had dated other Caribbean men and African men so I really didn't notice it because he was no different than other men I know and have dated. (I've really agreed with BHM when it comes the negative they have to say about Caribbean and African men)

Also, not all Rasta's have the same beliefs....there are different sects. If he's a real Rasta, he should be able to explain this to you and tell you exact which one he follows. 

If you are young and looking just have fun...go for it. But i wouldn't recommend dating them with marriage in mind.

Those who live in Rastafari usually have certain habits and company that they keep. They usually frequent certain types of places and, unto themselves, have certain standards that they uphold - or at least try in earnest to do so (which is exceedingly important because it can be difficult to live clean and right when your surroundings make it nearly impossible for you to do so).

My friend dated a 'rasta' for 5 years. She popped up to his house one day and there was a pepperoni pizza in the kitchen. He tried to say it was his brother's - his brother had been out of town for the week yet the pizza was still hot SMH.


this is very true.

I forgot to add this part. Yes, they love black women....and usually several at the same time. LOL
