Dating expectations too high

He justified watching and sharing the video by saying this: “This is not private but public, because he was not with his wife. We cannot view adulterers as victims.” The question begets why the Turkish government is so obsessed with sex.Vociferous journalist Oray Egin told that, “whenever I see a Turkish cleric of Islam talking about sex in the public domain, I immediately assume that it is a personal issue for them.All this results in outrageous public displays of affection in places such as Starbucks, which are seen as “Western” and “liberal,” and therefore justify a girl lying on top of her boyfriend and pretty much dry humping him.

Dating expectations too high

As journalist Belgin Tan says in his satirical blog in , the “independent attitudes [of foreign women] add to the challenge factor, it makes a man want to compete.

Because they have freedom to select, to be selected by one of them makes the guy more of a hero, a winner, a champion.” Let’s go back to my single friend: Turkish men just assumed she would be up for anything because she is half-English and would get furious with her if she would turn them down.

When my partner and I first arrived in Turkey, we stayed with a pair of uni students.

These two young guys would have big groups of their male buddies over most nights but I never saw a single woman.

Or even more frighteningly, a guy once completely stripped off and got into a bed with a foreign girl who was sleeping (and definitely did not invite him to do so).

She woke up when he started touching her, freaked out, and told him to get out, and his reaction was one of complete shock and disbelief, followed by downright refusal.

A Turkish male friend once told me that one night stands are not really a thing, and especially not for women (no big surprise there).

Another Turkish male friend told me that although men and women can be friends, growing up in large mixed-sex friendships groups is a lot less common than in other parts of the world.

Marital rape and domestic violence are both common practices, especially in rural areas.
