Dating turkey friendship Free explicit adult dating
Growing up in the UK, the dating scene was not an ordeal.
We no longer needed the approval of our dads and the days of being chaperoned while on a date were firmly rooted in the history books.
The ladette era of the 90’s prompted females to demand independence and if they wanted to have a one night stand and walk away in the morning, they were going to do it, whether their public reputation was tarnished or not.
Therefore, when I moved to Turkey, I was in for a shock, especially when it came to the dating scene.
The local teahouses were filled with old men assessing the foreigners who had so abruptly arrived in their village.
Despite the heat of the summer sun, the women were dressed in long sleeve shirts, traditional flower pants and their heads were covered.Gardens were filled with goats and chickens running around bundles of chopped firewood.We passed beautiful waterfalls on unknown country roads before arriving at a small village.This was traditional Turkey away from the manmade holiday resorts.
Looking back, I realize my naivety was shining like a lighthouse beacon.I was 25 years old, single, very naïve and had not considered researching cultural differences that I was likely to encounter.
