Just out of interest (and because I don´t think I have ever actually seen men holding hands in Turkey - apart from when they are dancing) I googled ´men holding hands in Turkey´ and came up with this article.  

It really has nothing to do with ´men holding hands´ (apart from a quick mention that the author obviously has seen this!) but I thought it was just such a lovely article about Turkey! And her list of the things that for her make up the ´real´ Turkey was just so great that, even though it´s probably not a recent article (just noticed it´s from last month), I felt I had to post it

[and I totally agree with her list - made me realise that, if sometimes I doubt it a little, I really do love living here ]

I have never seen men in Turkey hold hands while walking. I have seen them walking arm in arm, which is a strange sight for a Dutchy like me. I have seen Turkish me cuddle, but I haven´t googled it I could have guessed there was a special website for cuddling Turkish me. There´s a special website for cuddling everything. If you want to cuddle toe-nails I´m sure you can find a website about that too.

In southern European cultures, kisses on both cheeks are common between women or between a woman and a man, and among Greeks at least it is also common between men who are close friends or haven´t seen each other for a while. In Turkish and Arab circles on the other hand the gesture only exists between men. I´ve definitely seen young Turkish and Arabic rowdies, who I guarantee to be homophobic, kissing each other goodbye on both cheeks. Seeing it as a "goodnight kiss" makes it sound different, but it was probably seen by them as a goodbye kiss. Also in my experience all of these Mediterranean cultures, whether Christian Jewish or Muslim, are more touchy, for example the men will stand next to you with their arm around your shoulders when talking to you for no apparent reason; at least my Greek friends do this. So if the guy grabs your shoulder when he says something to you that doesn´t have to mean anything either except that he has affection for you.
