All around the world non Turkish people are marrying Turkish people and its a wonderful thing to know there are other people that can actually put up with us.
Here are 10 things people should know before dating a Turk, just so you know what you are getting into.
1 – We have two settings: loud and louder. Buy ear plugs.
2 – If you do something wrong, be prepared to hear about it for the rest of your life. Turks never forget.
3 – Be prepared to meet on average 1 new cousin per week. (for a small family)
4 – If the sun is shining and it’s Sunday – know we are having kebab at someone’s house, so don’t make plans.
5 – For Turkish girls – don’t piss me off, I have a Turkish dad!
6 – For Turkish boys – don’t piss me off I have a Turkish mum!
7- When family tell me I’ve put on weight, please don’t defend me, it’s their way of saying I look well.
8 – Just know we will be invited to an average of around 15 weddings a year.
9 – If you say you are full, you will be given more food. If you say you’re not hungry you will be given more food. Resistance is futile.
10 – Be prepared when we are speaking Turkish our hands will seem like we are simultaneously doing sign language.
