Seeing as ‘10 things you need to know before dating a Turk‘ went down like Pirzola at a Kebab, I thought it was a good idea to share 8 more things you need to know before dating a Turkish person. Hopefully once you have digested all of these, you will be ready to get out there and sweep a Turk off their feet…. not literally – they will probably punch you.
Here are 8 more things you need to know before dating a Turkish person.
1 – We have bread with every meal
2- Kissing an elders hand is a sign of respect. Try to check with your partner who is above the age threshold in case of causing offence. There’s nothing worse than an angry Yenge that wants to be an abla.
3 – If you go back to the motherland with your Turkish partner, expect to spend a lot of time visiting family members nobody has ever met. You will also be required to eat A LOT and drink Cola while people from the village talk for hours in front of you and you will not understand a single word.
4 – Expect to hear your partner say “Nope me and my family are not arguing, it’s just a conversation”.
5 – If we are at your partners parents house, there is a 50% chance the dad will make you drink raki. (Even if he knows you are driving)
6 – If you are a guy you will be pressured by family to propose.
7 – If you have proposed, you will be pressured to set a date
8 – If you are married, you will be pressured to have children.
