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.
My experience with speaking or talking with guys all came from my two best male friends and my two big brothers–obviously nothing romantic or flirtatious there.
I decided to interview about a dozen foreign men and Finnish women to see what their opinion was on this stereotype. My first boyfriend was Norwegian Saami and from the Saami culture. Have you heard the stereotype of foreign men taking Finnish women? Yes, I've heard of it and I think it isn't a true statement but it a true fear.
They start free blogs slating off every Turkish man they know and then join numerous amounts of forums to declare to the world that all Turkish men are sleazeballs and should never be trusted.
So when thinking about Turkish men, I type this post in despair.
From today, I am sending out a strong message to all women travelers or tourists.
Do not get involved in a holiday romance with a Turkish man simply because you can not handle it.
