Turkish dating rituals
All this results in outrageous public displays of affection in places such as Starbucks, which are seen as “Western” and “liberal,” and therefore justify a girl lying on top of her boyfriend and pretty much dry humping him.
I should also mention that these views have largely contributed to Turkish men’s taste for foreign women—and also their often inappropriate treatment of them.
It could be out of either envy or obsession caused by self-suppression.
With a religion that severely subjugates its women comes an unfair balance between the roles that men and women play in courtship, marriage, and sex: the woman is submissive to her husband, who can have multiple wives (although polygamy is illegal, it is still practiced in some parts of the country), and use her for sex whenever the mood strikes him.
To put it more simply, they constantly obsess over what they don’t have.
Some sort of a covetous behavior perhaps.” I completely agree with him.
As journalist Belgin Tan says in his satirical blog in , the “independent attitudes [of foreign women] add to the challenge factor, it makes a man want to compete.
Because they have freedom to select, to be selected by one of them makes the guy more of a hero, a winner, a champion.” Let’s go back to my single friend: Turkish men just assumed she would be up for anything because she is half-English and would get furious with her if she would turn them down.
Men see women as possessions and as many women grow up being treated like princesses, they develop unrealistic expectations of men.
