Dating turkey friendship
Now in America and in the UK, jealousy is a green monster that most people have a strong distaste for.
If you are dating a Turkish man or woman, there are no other men or women that exist anymore.Because of this jealousy you have to be careful of who you hang out with because…If you have tea with a guy after a class and someone sees you together—and they most certainly will—within the hour your classmates, your school, and all of your friends will have found out.Therefore, while a lot of the bad press about typical Turkish men centers around jealousy and persistence, it is a two way street—with a misunderstanding of both sides’ social norms and cultures.The presence of more than three million people of Turkish origin in Germany - the biggest Turkish diaspora in the world - means that Berlin and Ankara currently seem like parents forced together by a common child: Ankara is demanding visiting rights, but Berlin doesn’t think they are responsible enough to be left alone with the kid.I’m also not trying to create a stereotype about typical Turkish men.
These are simply my experiences in my small city outside of Istanbul.
Furthermore, I thought that having tea or coffee with a new male friend would mean nothing because how could tea or coffee be anything but harmless?
Now, this type does not describe all Turkish men, because I have met some really great male friends while in Turkey.
Not all of these traits or experiences are only a result of Turkish-ness.
Some of the stories that I have heard have been due to women beginning the flirtation themselves, and some men have a view of all Western women as being the same as women in movies.
I had heard stories of getting lots of extra attention from men if you were naturally blonde or red-headed, but that seemed normal since those are very distinct foreign looks.
