Every year, thousands of foreign women enter Turkey and strike up a holiday romance.
For some, the holiday romance does not work out and they move on.
One thing I have wanted to write about for a while in this column is the view of sex and dating in Turkey.
I have watched (mostly) foreign and (some) Turkish friends grapple with dating and all its highs and—more often—lows, and have become endlessly fascinated with the subject.
I will now attempt to dissect the game and wingman ability of Turkish men.
One guy is the “translator,” meaning he has the best English and facilitates conversation with foreign women.
He knew I wanted to meet them, but it never happened.
Do not get involved in a holiday romance with a Turkish man simply because you can not handle it.They begin smiling, touching, and joking almost immediately, usually with a plan to get the girls dancing as quickly as possible.Their initial game is heavily based on the physical.We have a great relationship, he treats me well, we spend lots of time together, etc..We're in love, but there has been a few problems recently that are kind of throwing me off.
