A lot of things really depend on what circumstances you met in.
If you met him while he was working in a bar one night and the only communication you had was while either one or both of you were drunk, the chances are it’s not going to turn into a real meaningful relationship.
The normal rules of dating are put on fast forward, it’s easy to get carried away and fall head over heels when everything is moving quickly, you know your time together is limited and that you’ll soon be returning home so everything is rushed.
First date, second date, first kiss,sex…It all happens in a blur and it’s difficult to know what is going to happen next and what it all means.
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.
I suppose it’s important to figure out if it is love, or lust.
What is more important is spending real quality time together and getting to know each other properly before moving forward, although admittedly that is difficult whilst on a short holiday.
An important thing to be sure of is that you both wanting the same thing, are you both looking for a quick fling, or is one of you more serious than the other?
While on holiday, a lot of us let our guards down, we are physically and emotionally relaxed and free from all the stresses of home, this makes it oh so easy to get carried away, but in reality, when you’re 4000 miles away back at home and have work to do and bills to pay, are you still going to be as interested in your Turkish ‘lover’?
If you are serious about the relationship, be certain he is too.
A lot of Turkish men working in resorts see a lot of women come and go, as soon as one flight leaves, another arrives.
Some men see women, British in particular, as easy and fun loving.
