Everybody seems to say so little I wonder if they are after a series of one night non-committal companionships or are just dumb. I will try to restrict what I say so as not to be too different. I am a retired English teacher (originally from London)looking for a relationship with a man of my own age with progressive politics. No, I really really am not looking for a toyboy, but is there any point at all in saying this in Turkey as so many Turkish boys and men think english women leave their brains at the airport and godlove"em find themselves irresistible? I am a retired teacher presently occupying myself with proofreading and printmaking. I speak French and Italian but my Turkish is pretty lousy. Would like to hear from any fellow retirees of any nationality and who can stretch beyond the "man seeks woman" label. As there is no way of knowing how current people's entries are, or indeed with the older group, whether they are still drawing breath, let me tell you I am writing this on 20.9.15. I presently live in Fethiye but am planning to move to Izmir.
