Dating turkish man
On the third night, the official wedding takes place.
It’s held in the groom’s home and the couple dances the night away and feasts on delicious foods.
Turkish traditions and culture surrounding the world of love and marriage can be strange to outsiders - and not a little old fashioned.
We explore dating, engagement, love and marriage in Turkey and all its glorious variety. But in Turkey's more rural communities the old traditions still live on: arranged marriages, strange rituals like womens’ single status being “advertised” with an empty bottle on the roof of a house (a man would knock the bottle off in order to be assessed for marriage suitability - by the woman’s father, of course).
In the afternoon, the groom’s family pick the bride up in a convoy of cars decked out by flowers and streamers.In general, even in larger, less conservative cities, dating is a serious enterprise, and there isn’t a lot of casual dating going on.Oddly, an “I love you” comes quite early on - and it’s followed by romantic gestures to prove the strength of your love.That could be flowers, gifts or big romantic gestures.To those of us coming from the western world, this kind of behaviour is not only over the top - it’s a bit creepy.
