There’s a common misconception that Jamaica is a dangerous travel destination, only safe if sticking to tourist areas, all-inclusive resorts and their organized tours.
Earlier this year I set out on a solo trip, and when I mentioned Jamaica as the highlight of my journey, people got very worried.
Dear Counsellor, I could really do with some advice on controlling my emotions and improving my technique with the opposite sex. This may mean checking with friends, co-workers and/or associates just to get a general impression of the person.
My tactlessness has caused me to lose out on two promising dates and potential relationships. On the first occasion there were rumours that one of them was sleeping around at work, and I questioned her about it. Of course, you will have to sift carefully through what you hear, as some information could be erroneous or downright malicious.
If you know that you have a tendency to be overly jealous and suspicious of women, then you will always find yourself interrogating them rather than enjoying their company.
So in the future, take it slow, do your homework, establish the ground rules of the relationship, and just enjoy the ride.
