Quoting lady in red:


I thought this thread was supposed to be about male-female friendships between people LIVING IN TURKEY. I don't think comments about how things work in the UK, Holland or anywhere else are really relevant here.





Don't tell me "they" went and got off topic again!

Just like to add - I originally thought this thread was about Turkish - Turkish relationships between male and female "friends" and I think someone has already mentioned that.

But as it has discended into something else, I would just like to say that I have more male (close) friends than I do female. That could be because I was brought up in male environment (farm) and I was the only girl in my class at primary school. Work has always been in male orientated businesses to.

I have never had any sexual relationships with any of my male friends (nor any advances!) and never intend to - most of them are married and it has never been a problem to go out and have a beer with them and "chew the fat" - for either their wives or my husband.

Reason I prefer men? The dont talk about the latest soap of TV. or that they have just put their Christmas Decorations or where the cheapest loaf of bread is, whether or not they got their washing done and that the kids are playing up again, what is in the glossy mags etc etc and that all bores me senseless...........

So Keith sorry in my opinion you are wrong!

You were right... the question was specific to turk-turk friendships, but alas! TC tradition has prevailed once again

As for the rest of your post, I wholeheartedly agree. My experience is quite similar...

Sorry Keith I was not referring to your individual post but the most of the thread!! I knew what I meant even if I didn't write it, but I originally thought you were talking in general - have I dug my hole deap enough??

now you've edited that first post ... before the discussion seemed to be very general, not at all specific to Turkiye and you did not mention you were in Turkiye
give poor LL a break!!
