Tips for dating a turkish man
I suppose it’s important to figure out if it is love, or lust.
Is it really possible to fall in love with someone in a country thousands of miles away from home where there are so many obstacles to overcome? Is it really possible to ‘love’ someone you can hardly communicate with? Getting to know each other from 4000 miles away is never easy, but nowadays with Skype, Facebook, Face Time, email and text, there really is no excuse not to keep in touch, if that’s what you want.
There are also cultural differences, and religion pays a large part in some circumstances too. Is he willing to let go of some of his more traditional Turkish cultural values, and are you willing to give up some of yours? If both of you are willing to make it work and put in the effort as well as having the patience, trust, understanding and communication, your relationship may well turn into something wonderful.
If not, enjoy it for what it is and move on, either way you’ll have great memories.
Sure, some of these men are really clever, scheming, con artists who cover their tracks well, however, in most circumstances there are some clear signs that your ‘relationship’ is doomed.The most important thing for me is can you really make the long distance relationship work?Are you patient enough to understand that while friends and people around you may be settling down and moving on with their lives, you’re going to be back and forth only seeing each other for a limited number of days per year until you come to a decision as to where your future is?We’ve all seen the typical ‘Take a Break’ magazine stories about Turkish men being love rats, cheating on British women, manipulating them for their money or using them for a visa, but are they all like that?The answer is no, they’re not, and some holiday romances can go the distance and turn into loving, long lasting relationships and marriages.
