Quoting vineyards

It seems as if we offended Nixie somehow and not the other way around but I don´t understand what went wrong.

There are three general groups of Turkish Class users:

1- Those having a Turkish date.

2- Those using mostly the political discussion forum

3- Those wishing to learn Turkish only.

 

I belong to group two that´s why I jumped into this discussion.

 

Again, I sincerely apologise for what I wrote. It was inappropriate and impolite to bring up such a subject.

I´m here because I want to learn the language and about the country and I will continue to read the forum quietly.

If this is the border of impoliteness, I write this message very far away from that border. It is like you are still in the USA but I am in the middle of Mexico

Come on Elisabeth, we all know that you enjoy the controversial political debates, like "East vs West", the ´Kurdish´ discussions, or "Abolish 301"! That´s the real reason why you´re here.. you like adding some controversy to the debate.. Wink{#emotions_dlg.laugh_at}

Quoting Abla

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.

 

But what they say is that what these men do, IS hurt and/or abuse, so how can it be immoral?

Just kidding, was really thinking about lemon. I do prefer your humor to anyone´s controversy seeking!

Regarding cross cultural relationships, from my observation of many such relationships, having a very close relationship with another, like a marriage, is not easy. Talk with any couple who have been together a long time and you will see.

It makes things easier when the parties involved are going on the same path culturally and spiratually. When different cultural tastes and values are involved, at first they are exciting, but after a while they can become annoying as one seeks comfort at home. Eventually the thrill of the exotic can become tedious and annoying.

This is so true.  I find that after a number of years, my husband and I have just found a lot of common ground and stopped being so "rigid" in our beliefs.  Otherwise, it would just never work.

I think the fact you were friends for many years makes a big difference. Also, you both had a great deal of multicultural experience and awarness. 
When a woman from a highly developed country meets a man in Turkey who is from a remote village, it´s a very big cultural clash. It´s almost isurmountable IMHO.  

Quoting Elisabeth

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.
