Now as a Turkish man let me be sincere. Most Turkish men think foreign women is an easy prey. There are many factors behind this attention to foreign women:

1)Making love easily (they think so)

2)Money

3)Marriage and getting a citizenship

4) Love

As a turkish, i can say that beware of turkish men.

 

There is two possibility here:

1. They are really kind and generous to foreign women with no bad intentions.

This possibility is %5 or less. Not all of them same but hard to find them.

 

2. They need a lifetime visa for europe or usa. This is the main reason.

Or just having fun for a couple of days including sexual intercourse.

This possibility is %95 or more.

 

I do not approve the second one but it is a reality. Just be careful.

After these explanations I wonder if we are in this %5 or not? Men is men afterall

As long as free movement of people is not possible in our world  -  or it is possible for some and some not  -  these things will continue to happen. And I can not see it so immoral as long as no one is hurt or abused.

Of course, you must be sincere! I like when people speak their mind, that is one thing Swedes have problems with. We´re too diplomatic and afraid of conflict.

How else can I learn unless you tell me your truth of how you see it?

And yes, I already know that many people around the world think that all Swedish women has sex with anyone, which just isn´t true. They have sex with the man they want to, true. But not with anyone. And of course, there are Swedish women who will only have sex with the one they marry...

 

But what I mean is, from what I told you, is that typical for Turkish men to be so direct and so soon? Are they/you towards Turkish women too? Are Turkish women direct with how they feel about a man?

And of course, we are generalising.

 

Love is one thing, of course, but nobody falls in love after just two sentences.

As for the sex, you mean it´s really difficult to get a one-night-stand in Turkey, like the big cities like Istanbul or Ankara?

We are all different. I am not direct. I can say I am shy. But other people can be very direct. It is not easy for everyone to have an one-night stand in Turkey. Men here don´t respect women who made sex before marriage. So women are very cautious.

I´ve been married to a Turkish man for seven years now.  We were friends for many years before getting together.  I haven´t met many Turkish men who were in and out of relationships.  In fact, many of them are quite shy and reserved.  That has been my experience.  I would be careful with anyone who told me that they loved me after a few emails.  

 

Also, women in Turkey are not terribly flirtatious.  From what I have experienced in Turkish culture, love is a very serious matter.  It is reserved for serious relationships and marriage.
