Can anyone shed any light on the fact that Turkish males seem to dislike each other?
They seem to have no trust in each other, where women are concerned.....is it just with women or in other area's too I wonder ???

i find it sweet that a man protects his girl. Id feel unsafe and strange if he didnt. As for them not trusting each other, i think its more of the fact they care about their women and the dangers the world has that it is hard to trust anyone when it concerns there partner.

Yes, I also think jealously is sweet... in small doses. (But my sweetheart has already told me he doesn't like jealous people.) But I've heard many stories of Turkish men going overboard with their jealously... Someone shed some light about this, please!

Is it just basic possessiveness-ownership.
Or maybe -I have seen the way some European girls behave in Turkey-maybe it is beleived we all are capable of such behaviour

I think that you may be right oludenizdollz! Maybe Turkish men see how 'some' european women behave in the holiday resorts and think that we are all like that.

It is lovely to feel protected by your loved one though. A Turkish man will guard you with his life. Although there is a fine line in being too protective, there needs to be a heathly balance.

I still wonder though, if in general Turkish men dislike each other, or is it just a woman thing? Maybe some of our Turkish male class mates could confirm this for us....... Do you have a dislike for each other or is it just if women are involved?

Isn't it also part of their 'need' to be the powerful one in the relationship..? (im not saying this is something bad though..)

 I think so... because they are speaking with each other and laugh about it...

serious response:

 

It´s a cultural matter. In patriarchal societies men believe women are too vulnerable to look after themselves and feel the need to make sure they´re not harassed by other men. "I trust you, it´s the other men I don´t trust" is a popular sentence meaning "you´re too stupid to resist other guys"

 

psychoanalytical response:

 

Men with low self-esteem feel threatened by other men. Hence they try to contol everythign in their surrounding, including women.

 

off-topic style response:

 

They´re afraid of the competition on the market. It´s not wise to lose a good source of laptops and mobiles to another resort waiter.
