Tips For Dating A Turkish Woman

So you’ve met an amazing Turkish woman and are ready to take things to the next level? Congrats, my friend! Dating someone from another culture can be so eye-opening and fulfilling when you embrace the experience with an open heart and mind.

But it also helps to understand some basics around Turkish culture and values upfront so you can better connect with her background. Especially since family traditions and tight-knit community run so strongly here. Rather than feeling intimidated by all the unknowns, I invite you to get curious.

Ready? In this section, let’s go over everything you need to know and consider when dating a Turkish woman.

1. Don’t Try To Limit Her

If your romantic sights are set on winning the heart of a lovely Turkish woman, here is a crucial tip – avoid coming across as controlling whenever possible!

Having grown up with the cultural norm of overprotective, authoritarian fathers and families limiting their independence, most Turkish ladies are expressly seeking more personal freedom in dating life. The last thing your kadın wants is yet another relationship feeling restrictive!

2. Don’t Criticize Her Clothing Style

Turkish men often misstep here by implying a kadin’s chic outfit is inappropriate, too flashy, or that she’d look more beautiful when dressed modestly. They think urging more conservatism shows you care about her virtue. But they are so wrong! In today’s modern culture, nothing gets a Turkish lady fired up quicker than being told what she can or cannot wear! Turkish girls emphasize that they can wear anything they want freely at every opportunity on both social media and in real life.

3. Talk Openly With Her

In a romantic relationship (ilişki), talking openly with your partner ensures that no misunderstandings arise. You should be clear about what you expect from a relationship and what are your red flags. A Turkish woman likes a man who’s honest and open when it comes to discussing serious matters.

For example, if you feel like your relationship is not going to last long or if you’ve lost your love and interest, you should tell her openly without beating around the bush. Otherwise, things can get even more complicated.

4. Show That You Care About Her

Like all women, Turkish women want to feel loved and cared for as well. Don’t think about buying expensive gifts or taking her on luxurious vacations. They don’t expect that from you. They want to see that they are more important than your favorite things. For example, you should be able to spend time with your woman and be able to text or call her even if you have work to do. I promise she’ll appreciate these small acts.

5. Make Her Laugh

Turkish girls want to be around a man who makes them laugh. They have a good sense of humor, and they like men who can make them laugh. If your Turkish crush laughs at your jokes and thinks you’re a funny person, it means you’ve made a good impression on her!

6. Don’t Be Too Intimate In Public

Physical contact between couples may sometimes be considered inappropriate in public, especially if there are elderly people around you. So, when dating a Turkish girl, it’s best not to kiss her or display other forms of intimacy while out in public places. Turkish society likes to gossip, and they may say bad things about your girlfriend, but not you.

7. Respect Her Family

In Turkish culture, family values are very important for Turkish women. They love and respect their parents so much that they won’t let you criticize them. If you want to have a successful relationship with a Turkish woman, you must get on well with her family members.

8. Understand Her Feelings

Sometimes, Turkish women may want to be understood without saying everything. For example, they may be mad at you for something you’ve done or said, which you have no idea about as a man. They want you to figure it out yourself instead of telling you themselves. So, you should find your mistake and ask for forgiveness. For example, my husband can tell from my face when I’m bothered by something, and it doesn’t take him long to figure out what the matter is.

9. Turkish Women Date To Marry

It’s rare for a Turkish woman to date for fun or casually. Most Turkish women want to have a family and kids in the long term. That’s why they don’t date anyone randomly. If they accept to be your girlfriend, you should be happy because it means that they see you as a worthy man.
