Well, at risk of boring everyone who has heard my story so many times....
I'm Jan, I'm 42. I live on the Wirral, which is in the North West of England, between Liverpool and Chester.
I first went to Turkey in 2002, met a guy, but didn't think of it as any more than a holiday snog. I was surprised when he kept in touch, but I didn't expect anything to come of it. I googled 'Turkish men scams' as soon as I got back (there was NO way I was going to be taken for a mug!), and came across a new MSN group ' English Girlfriends of Turkish Men ' with a handful of members. That was the start of a wonderful relationship........ with lots of women in my position.
For the next 2 years, I went over a few times a year to see the Turkish guy, we had some good times, but these relationships are 'all or nothing'. It comes to a point where the only way forward is to get married, apply for a visa - and my heart wasn't in it. We split up, but I stayed on the website (which I was co-managing by then).
We had the occasional Turkish man join the site - some helpful, and some there to chat up the ladies. So when someone told me there was a man in the site Chatroom, I stomped in there (as much as you can stomp with your keyboard), and that's where I first encountered Ozz, the self-styled Sultan of Chat.
