Quoting KeithL:

I'm in Turkey. My comments are about people I know. How is it off topic?

Quoting KeithL:

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

Hmm, did you have a look at the first post of this thread? It really is about friendship between TR men and women..

And yes, I admit, for a minute I forgot about that too

lol lol lol

ok, *one more attmept*
... notwithstanding the differences between traditional and modern views, and the various general opinions etc etc that have been offered, can anyone give a straight answer to the original question?

For example, Keith says his views are old-fashioned, but are there others in Turkey who hold the same view, or a completely different view or any view??

I just want to add that if one STRICTLY follows Muslim rules, then a very "tight leash" is kept on females/daughters. Turkey is Muslim but secular. In the more fundamentalist parts of the country, I expect that women are definitely not supposed to interact with males who are not their relatives. This, I'm sure, is more relaxed in urban areas. But how much?

Actually, this may be controversial (Robyn ! ) but I actually believe that the world over, women THINK they can be friends with men, and will say they have many male friends...but.... 90% of the men, if asked, would say they would be MORE THAN FRIENDS if it was possible .

This applies even to work colleagues in my experience . Sad but true. Men think of little else.... lol!

More controversial is that with one or two men I would like having 'more' but they don't want have 'it' with me....
