My personality can, at times, seem very social or flirtatious because I am a bit sarcastic.
Sometimes I come across as initiating, while really I’m just trying to be myself.
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.
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.
The personality traits of a gentleman, smooth talker, romantic, and extreme flirt are all wrapped together to give you the typical Turkish man.
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).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.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.
