I´m searching some expressions, I hope my explanation of what I want is clear enough for Turkish  natives- I dont know the english expressions either, thank you very much for your help.

 

1. What is the equivalent for: to talk between 4 eyes

2. I hear an expression with çorap when we want to say that things ladder/ disintegrate one after onother from a weak point

3. Is there in turkish any expression to indicate a person who is guilty for something and when people around him talk about the subject he thinks they are referring to him even they dont ( in romanian we say : to be with the fly on his fur cap...)

4. Every one find what he  deserves/ is searching for --- is it enough  to translate it word by word, in this case , please do it for me 

5. take the initiative----?

6.for every thing it is a first (time)

7. for a situation like I talk to someone but he doesnt pay attention to what I say-- in romanian I would say: I´m talking  and it is me who is listening

something like: to talk in a very secret way, face to face

7. Duvara konuşmak.

 

we have something  identical - to talk to walls.. (to talk in vain, nobody hear)

We also respond to the person who is not paying attention: "Kime söylüyorum ben?" (Who am I saying this?) or  "Ben kiminle konuşuyorum?" (Who am I talking to?)

Çok teşkkür ederim, Faruk! 

For 1.  I think it is yüz yüze konuşmak,  nihayet aklıma geldi.
