All of it still applies and I stand by what I have written.
However you may also be interested in my latest post regarding Turkish men called “My Turkish Love Letter” (November 2013) Turkish Men are once again causing heartache all over the globe.
The fact is that there are plenty of mixed relationships between Turkish men and foreign women that work perfectly well.
I can however tell you the top three reasons why a holiday romance did not work out. Now, it does not take a rocket scientist to work out that when you live in two different countries, the odds are stacked against you.
From today, I am sending out a strong message to all women travelers or tourists.
Do not get involved in a holiday romance with a Turkish man simply because you can not handle it.
It is what it is, a holiday romance, even if you return six times a year to see him.
If you both want to take the romance further, then one of you has to move countries. Unfortunately most of the relationships that I have seen fail, is because the women wants to keep 100% of her culture and the Turkish man wants to keep 100% of his Turkish culture.
They start free blogs slating off every Turkish man they know and then join numerous amounts of forums to declare to the world that all Turkish men are sleazeballs and should never be trusted.
