My main point is it all depends on what intentions you both have. If you are both into having fun with other then there is noway you will settle down. Not every Rasta is in for a fling and for the fun. Yes their are plastic rastas out there and i have met many of them who spot rastas for the sake of catching the eye of a muzungu but deep down in there heart they are not realy a Rasta. Dear Hamdee, Thank you so much for sharing your story! The local guys say goodbye to the girls after their two-week summer holiday, swear undying love and then wait to greet jump on the new arrivals getting off the same aeroplane …!
Rastafarianism is not about dreads or black and white, whatever people say or want to call it. I guess some people just want to have that overwhelming experience as they think with these ras guys they happen to hook up with. The world has changed alot that even white girls can fall for black men, its love,care and maturity if one can make them happy ,why not?
I have read some of the comments, and sincerely speaking, i couldnt read all of them because most of them are so disappointing.

I dont know if some people really think before posting a comment. I personally cant tell you that Rastas do this or that, the world is moving fast, every society has changed, for instance, Christianity.

I think it is just so easy to judge a certain group of people because they are few,… all those bad things they are using to categorize Rastas are just individual constraints. I wld also disagree with some of your arguments about who is or not a true Rasta! There are two kinds of guys who spot dreads in Uganda: Then there are reason men date white girls. Some date them because it allows them to have as many girls as is possible, since the white girls shall in many cases have to go back home, leaving space for another girl; then there are those that have that stereotype that almost all of us black people have been taught about white girls never having qualms about doing anything and everything in bed; then, there is the misconception that white girls are loaded.
This is common amongst children who come from families with mixed tribal marriages and are not sure where to pledge their allegiances; there is then the man that just wants something different and white is as different as they can come. How is it that several white women end up with these dreadlocked chaps? It comes down to those white ladies desiring men who are different from the rest of the flock, non-conformists; them desiring a bad boy, and what easier way to tell a bad boy than by seeing one who is different?
It also comes down to where those white women go and with whom they interact. If they go to places most frequented by men with dreadlocks, they shall end up with a dreadlocked fellow. Thanks for your input Bida. Your comments about a Ugandan man opting for a white woman to avoid questions about his tribe are very interesting.
Although I have dated Ugandans and been aware of which tribe they are from, I admit I have hardly appreciated what it all means. It certainly would not have mattered to me which tribe a boyfriend came from. Rightly or wrongly, Ugandans rarely talk about issues of tribe with bazungu.
Well… This was certainly an interesting read. It seems to be particularly prevalent with the tourist and volunteer crowd rather than the expat crowd. That said, I haven't experienced it myself. From observation I want to agree with you on all points, but from personal experience, I can not. Hey GK thanks for commenting. Gosh JRR Tolkien at 7 years old, high brow indeed!
I was a volunteer when I feel into that particular plastic rasta trap myself! Thanks Wambwa — these dating stories could run and run!

Of course you can date a white girl — if she likes the look of you! Their Uganda office is in Tank Hill, Muyenga. VSO have volunteers from all over the world, working in all other parts of the world! Historically, Voluntary Service Overseas placements were for two years but nowadays many are for one year, six months, even three months. There was a time when instead of this kind of useless discussion, it was about how so many African men like light skinned women or full bodied women and how many African women lightened their skin and or became full bodied.
There were many Ugandans with dreadlocks who were not Rastafarians or fake rastas including Nyabingi — google her and learn long before bazungu came to this part of Africa and began labelling and classifying people with foreign labels and classifications. As I think I stated in my article already, a hairstyle e.
No-one likes to be objectified. I get it all the time. In fact, my second most popular article is this one: Are all muzungus rich? Now who is objectifying who? It puts a lot of stuff into perspective, and has helped me understand certain things a bit better… including a recent interaction I had, which initially left me scratching my head. I was out having drinks when a young lady approached me and initiated a conversation with me. So, I continued answering all her questions, until we exchanged names and I thought the conversation was ending. She linger-lingered around even more.
It was getting a little awkward. I wondered why she thought I should take her number I can be a bit slow sometimes lol but thought it would be rude not to take it if she wanted me to have it. I found it all very strange, until reading this. There are numerous other similarly strange and random incidents to which this article adds perspective. So, thanks for the food for thought. Thanks for taking the time to reply. Your story is interesting.

Have you ever come across the book Men are from Mars and women are from Venus? Not had anyone blow kisses at me across the street in Kampala. Have you read the article I wrote for the Daily Telegraph? Thanks for your response, too. I had a good chuckle reading it. I also, I enjoy your blog a lot! Many times when I google something about Uganda, your blog is on the first page! Thanks for the positive feedback on the blog.
Fantastic to hear how often my blog is on first page of Google! Thanks very much for writing this article. I have dreadlocks because I love my hair. I also want your help in illustrating how I would get one. In totally need your help in getting a white girl friend. Every relationship is different of course, but in my experience, cross-cultural relationships require a lot of work.

The image you have is quite romantic, the reality would be harder, I think. Still, if you find a muzungu girlfriend who wants to go hunting with you, I would love to meet her! Hi I am a Muzungu woman who has been targeted by so called HUNTERS for a number of years and unfortunately got screwed over badly i was not living in Uganda but other countries in Africa but some African men do target Muzungu women and visa versa. Quite frankly i think if some of the musungu girls are looking for some short term fun then why not go with these hunters… but if you are looking for something more serious , stir well clear.

I am afraid the perception of white women being all rich quite frankly is racist … why are people judging someone and thinking just because of their skin colour they are rich or that someone with dreads of more flamboyant hair is a rasta? Both equally are quite pathetic. The traditional culture in Africa is for the man to be the bread winner so why are they expecting the Musungu woman to pay for everything and support them… avoid such men. I have been treated like a bank in the past but to be honest, only because i let people treat me this way. The best is to suss out these guys real intentions.
This is the modern world and even African is modernising so i believe in sharing whether you are white or black or man or woman. Musungu women looking for real love and respect should give the HUNTERS a wide berth and focus on meetings lovely Uganda men who dont expect you to pay for everything, are respectful, willing to compromise, considerate and loving with or without dreads. You are quite an interesting person and I would love to meet you for a drink and chat.
I hope to be arrive Kigali mid-December from Lagos via Addis Ababa and take that Jaguar Bus ride to Kampala you wrote about in one of your previous posts without your experience on that ride though,lol …. This time I hope to visit Mombasa also by a bus ride from Nairobi. Hope we get to meet.
Hi Nelson, thanks for the comments — yes everyone had something to say about this story!
