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.I don’t want to read your blog, like your Facebook page or meet you on a forum.
I listed 10 of them and I hope they will help you realize if yours is on the game or not: 1) You in Jakarta: To be honest, if it was a massage parlour, a club in Kota, a bar in Blok M, or a karaoke, there is a 99% chance she is a fake. Your only chance is that she was in such a place by accident, but that never really happens.
2) Your Indonesian girlfriend in an abnormal manner.
Any man can have an affair even if he lives in the same house as you, so why do you think he is going to be honest when he lives in a different country?
If you are dating one of the many Turkish men who break women’s hearts, then don’t call him the love of your life when you live in two different countries.
The secret for that, I discovered, was that all of them were dated during the same period of 3 years, at the same time.
Don't expect a girl who did that kind of cheating to be nicer with you! The reason for that is simple: It's hard to be deceptive, and when someone's life is a lie, he cannot always find good excuses for everything.
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.
For it to work, both of you has to meet in the middle and give something up.
Yes, his mother will always come before you, get over it!
