The fact is that there are plenty of mixed relationships between Turkish men and foreign women that work perfectly well.
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.
I have lived my entire life, barring the past 5 years of course, in Southern California.
At first glance, Medellin women do not perceive me as a foreigner due to the way I look.
Others however can not accept the holiday romance for what it was.
They join Turkish Love Rats and make it the focus of their Facebook page.
