19 Reasons You Should Fall In Love With A Turkish Person
The personality traits of a gentleman, smooth talker, romantic, and extreme flirt are all wrapped together to give you the typical Turkish man. But be cautious. Some men have ulterior motives, and some will definitely get you into trouble. When I first came to Turkey , I was given no warning about how typical Turkish men would act.
I wondered if they would be anything like American men, the only type I knew, or if the culture would alter their personality completely. 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. Nonetheless, I had a rude awakening about the characteristics of typical Turkish men within the first month I lived in Turkey. All of that was fine by me.
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. 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. These are simply my experiences in my small city outside of Istanbul. 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.
If you are casually asked to have coffee or tea, and politely decline, that may stop them—for a few minutes. If you say no to them once, they will ask again, or they will lie low until you notice them again. To me this was so bizarre because in the States most men get anxious even asking a girl out kudos to those who have the courage to take that risk. This does not solely go for Turkish men; this is true for men and women here. Jealousy is part of their culture and a fact of life.
If you are dating a Turkish man or woman, there are no other men or women that exist anymore. Now in America and in the UK, jealousy is a green monster that most people have a strong distaste for. 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. There have been instances where I have been walking around town and I ran into one of my students.
We decided to chat for awhile, usually for them to practice English. By the end of the day I would be asked by either my boss or friends if there would be a date soon. The attention is going to come, and you have to accept it. In the beginning you think you are royalty, but the best way to make sure you are safe is to use common sense. In Turkey there are different social norms that you have to follow. Here it is all about being continually conscious about what others are thinking, both if they see you alone with someone, or if a guy is asking you to hang out.
At the same time, typical Turkish men are not always to blame. My personality can, at times, seem very social or flirtatious because I am a bit sarcastic.

But Turkish guy might have some differences when it comes to jealousy and worldview.
So if you will marry a Turkish guy who has never been outside of the Turkey. Probably he has all of typical characteristics that you said. I met my husband in my home country where we worked together. So he left the country long time ago, and he has more western attitude. Of course, we all have natural and ethnic stuff from genes. But I love him he is a family man.
I believe him and his honest. I hate Turkish men with traditional view in Turkey. I find them very annoying with maniacal eyes. So be careful when you come to live to Turkey. As a foreign women you will find Turkey very uncomfortable. Turkish women are very rude and unwelcoming in Turkey. Their women jealous of western women. And they will constantly show their hostility. But Turkish men are very disrespectful towards the non Turkish females. They are very oppressive to Turkish women as I understood.
Once I went to the store to buy something and I just said hi to local cashier and he accepted it as flirt. When he approached me he touched lightly my butt. It was obvious sexual harassment. Please be careful when say hello and smile any men. They will automatically accept it as a sign for intimacy from you. Sorry for the bad experiences you had. I will try to explain a little bit. Many Turkish people are not used to have long flirts. Because of that when a Turkish guy even have a little attention from a girl, it makes him like fall in love or obsessed.
Normal things for European people like hugs kisses hangouts are the things that Turkish people experience before marriage during being fiance. There are many things to write but it will take paragraphs. I summarised. But i can tell if someone needs. I miss my turkish ,man. I dont understand him at all. I think he doesnt need me for me as a friend now. Though before he said we will be a couple.
I need now 3 months to recover its hard now to trust men I dont know…i wish i could do smth to be with him But i cant do anything, because i dont live in such good succesful country and i cant go out of my country. But i dont want to loose him, i dpnt want him to marry another woman i wish i never met him. OFC haha.
SO i got a conclusion that i cant meet him again after thousand miles i flew, but thats alright. He cheated on me within one year of our marriage and over the course of our marriage would seek out and flirt with many women on line. I am british and live in Turkey. A typical Turkish man is a gentleman and will treat his wife or gf like a princess if he loves her. Unfortunately most of the guys in the resorts are from the east and their mentality is very different to ours.
Like the guy said earlier find a secular educated man from west side and you will have very few cultural issues. Yes they can be jealous and yes gender roles are a bit old fashioned but after years of being a working wife and mother i am the happiest i have ever been because my Turkish husband is wonderful and looks after me. Oh and i should mention i l? True love can take a while to find be patient whereever you are and dont settle for bullshit xx.
As a Turkish guy you should not convert your religion to Islam or something just because of your lover or anyone. Because in some Turkish families, religious tradition or something like that is so important. They will force you to do islamic things if they are too religious. And this kind of people might see you as a breeding-sex machine who just have to clean the house and make food only.
So you should not make that mistake. Find a secular Turkish man next time,not religious one. Muslim religious people are not same with Christian ones. This comment for warning about some muslim families for you. Not all of Turks. Just like me. I am a secular person who cares about women,people etc. My point is ,there is only one or two thing you need to be careful.
Both of my parents are Turkish but I was born in the United States. I have travelled to Turkey a lot a speak the language fluently. I have an intimate graduate level Turkish reading class with 4 other students. Three of them are young male engineers who came from the same university abroad.
