All dating love site in turkish
Despite the heat of the summer sun, the women were dressed in long sleeve shirts, traditional flower pants and their heads were covered.Gardens were filled with goats and chickens running around bundles of chopped firewood.The traditions and wedding styles largely depends on which area of Turkey the couple originates.One friend working in tourism returned to his village, to follow up a potential match arranged by his mother.She never had to buy that little black dress and high heels to impress.Every day, I am in Turkey, I learn more and more about my adopted country and it never fails to surprise but as Turkey moves further towards western values and trends, I wonder what will happen to the traditional Turkish dating rituals of the past.
Any man who could knock the milk bottle off the roof could ask for the daughters hand in marriage.Yet in the large cities that have adopted western trends such as Istanbul and Izmir, you will openly see young couples kissing and cuddling in public and women in bars.Thankfully, my experience of the Turkish courting ritual was a lot easier maybe because I was a western girl.The father would then asses the suitor’s financial position and the ability to provide for his daughter and the children that would be born so soon after the wedding.
I was truly shocked and over the next five years would hear of many other regional traditions.
After just a few dates, my then to be husband moved in with me but we were considered as living in sin.
