Nonetheless, I had a rude awakening about the characteristics of typical Turkish men within the first month I lived in Turkey.
I didn’t date much in high school or at university, and I wasn’t given much attention by men. I am a self-proclaimed bookworm and nerd to the core, so nothing could keep me from the gorgeous university libraries or research lounges.
Online dating in Turkey is a lot like online dating in Lebanon…not popular and still seen as taboo.
As a result, don’t expect to have the same results in this country that you would find in other parts of the world like Russia or Thailand, where online dating sites are less taboo and have been around for years.

When I first came to Turkey, I was given no warning about how typical Turkish men would act.

All of it still applies and I stand by what I have written.
Do not get involved in a holiday romance with a Turkish man simply because you can not handle it.
I’ve been faithful to my husband for 17 years, but I had the urge to feel this rush of adrenaline again, to seduce again…
But I needed to be very discreet, because my family life makes me happy and I didn’t want to change anything to it.
