  1. Hi Mohsin; I think you are overthinking about this whole flirting thing in Turkey. Don't think too much about what to do, what to say etc. just get things going like normal when you two meet. I mean just be yourself, act like how you normally act, do what you normally do. For instance if you are hungry when you two meet, go to a cafe/restaurant and actually have some food. If you (you and her) not hungry then go grab some coffee or go to Devrim Stadium if you'll meet at ODTU :). Have fun during whatever you will be doing - don't be so nervous about dating and relationships. As for Turkish girls (I mean the modern ones and assuming that your date is a modern thinking girl as well), they like to be friends first so don't be judgmental about being friends before taking things seriously. I guess that you quickly want to get things seriously since you are searching for a girl/woman whom you can spend your life with but the thing is that Turkish girls (actually most of the girls around the world) wants to be friends before jumping into a serious relationship. I couldn't understand your thoughts about everyone having close friends and/or multiple friends. I think it's absolutely normal for a university student to have a lot of friends/connections and I also think it's a good thing. Anyway, hope my comments will help. Briefly, I advise you to stay calm and relaxed, have fun and don't think to get married with a person before your first date Cheers, Emre.
  2. Hi Amy; Firstly, Let me say that both of the incidents are not harmless in fact they are clearly harassment. I'm sorry for what you've gone through during your time in Turkey. I feel ashamed on behalf of those primitive f.cking idiots as a Turkish man. Unfortunately this is the reality in Turkey - Sad but true. You can only be safe in a few central and good neighborhoods in Turkey like some parts of Istanbul, Ankara, Izmir (most parts), Antalya, Bodrum etc. As for your frustration not saying "f.ck off" and things like that to those harassers, I'm glad that you didn't since they wouldn't take you seriously and they might have laughed because you got angry. I can also emphasize that you couldn't defend yourself for some reason that you are in Turkey because similar thing happened to me in Aberdeen a couple of months ago. My experience wasn't a sexual harassment but to sum it up a couple man took my turn in taxi line by force and threw beer bottles from the car to me while swearing with no reason. I would normally defend myself with whatever it takes in Turkey but all I did was looking them with empty eyes - very frustrating. I stopped myself without a conscious decision because I was in another country (in which I entered with VISA) and wanted to stay out of trouble. Anyway, once again I'm very sorry that you've gone through a serious couple of incidents and I apologize on behalf of those worthless persons if it helps.
  3. Hi Hobbit; I'm really surprised that you still discuss him after he says killing is honorable as if he lives in a video game or in Europe before medieval age not to mention the fact that killings of Israel is open to argument. For me, he is no different than the killers no matter which side they think they are fighting for.
  4. I know a lot of foreign chefs (I don't know them personally) working at 5 star hotels in Istanbul. You can try to contact them. They might show you the way.
  5. Well, As a relatively modern Turk, I would answer this topic with a real long entry but unfortunately I'm too lazy to write all the details. I'll write a short one instead: Erdogan was a worker at the Istanbul municipal with no qualification. He can't even show his university degree because its fake. He was raised by support of Western Actors to build some sort of "Islamic Democracy" In Turkey. Now he gained full power thanks to uneducated majority who were fooled by religion, They worship him with such blindless which I am still being surprised by it. Not all of us want Turkey to become next Iran but unfortunately majority do. If you look at the educated people in Turkey, vast majority of them hate Erdogan and his dictatorship except the ones who benefit from it. I'm trying not to give a f.ck about politics and current events so hard that I don't even watch news - not even TV. I've given up all my hopes about Turkey and most likely I'll move to another country if things keep getting worse like this. Yes, that was my short answer. By the way, neither Erdogan nor the leaders of Israel are humanist & peaceful ones. I won't discuss about which killer is worse than the other. Thanks.
  6. Hi Rebecca; You're 18, he's 21. It's just a summer crush with a guy who works in a hotel. Don't think that this is real love or some kind of miracle. Hope I could choose the words not to offend you. Emre.
  7. I think Cesme has already become another Bodrum. I've been going there since 2003 and last 3 years I noticed that it became new Bodrum. Rich but mannerless and fool Turkish tourists racing their money against each other at luxurious but cheesy beaches, clubs and restaurants etc.
  8. My first impression from your first message was that your boss was trying to make you quit your job but his suggestions surprised me. I think he might have a secret purpose since those suggestions seem too good to be true. As for notice period, you may have already learned this but yes you have a notice period while resigning. You really should (or should have) talk to a lawyer who is specialized in business conflicts between employer - employee. In Turkey, courts tend to have an affirmative action on employees and you can win the court if you have reasonable arguments. Just for your info, it might take up to 2 years for court to finish the case because the law system in Turkey is really really really slow.
  9. "uneducated" tells everything. I'm sorry that guys like this one make people think all of the Turkish Men are like that.
  10. Hi Ken; It seems that you've put a lot of effort and experience for this article. I'll read it and comment as a Turkish man when I have time.
  11. Firstly, welcome to Turkey; Turkiye'ye hosgeldin. Well, I'm sure that you'll see landmarks and popular places in Istanbul such as Galata Tower, Sultanahmet, maybe Ciragan and Topkapi Palaces etc. I'll try to recommend you some places and restaurants for shopping, entertainment etc. As a local, I strongly advise you to go to Taksim Asmalimescit region for nightlife. Not only there are plenty of bars, pubs, clubs but also you can see people from all around the world having fun in streets & places. Just be a little bit careful since Istanbul is a dangerous city Of course you'll see İstiklal Caddesi in Taksim in which you can find anything you want :)For shopping, you'll see a lot of shopping malls. A few of good ones are Zorlu Center AVM, Kanyon AVM, Istinye Park Avm. All of these shopping malls are located in European side of Istanbul.You should also go to Rumeli Hisari, there are good restaurants there. Especially you should have breakfast at Kale Restaurant or Lokma Restaurant with brilliant Bosphorus view. Then you can walk to Bebek Sahili by coast line. Have a coffee in Bebek Starbucks which is nearby the sea. You can also have lunch/ dinner in nearby restaurants such as Kirinti. I also recommend Beşiktaş Çarşı where good breakfast restaurants, shops etc. are located.Another day you can go to Akin Balık at Galata. It's a seafood restaurant nearby the sea. Good view, tasty food with fair prices.As for Anatolian side, You should go to Bağdat Caddesi in Kadıköy where you can find good shops, restaurants. You can take a walk and/or hang out with your friends in Caddebostan Coast which is very close to Kadikoy.Well that's pretty much what I do when I go to Istanbul Hope these advises helps. Have fun.
  12. Well, you know half a dozen languages with logistics experience. That's impressive. If I were you, I would work for an oil company in UAE or US, make a lot of money (maybe millions) in 5 years and then move to Turkey as a rich person Of course you can find job(s) here, even the jobs matching your experience for instance big logistics companies or holdings but salaries and working hours/conditions in Turkey will not satisfy you. Here you've read a feedback from a Turk.
  13. Hey Happyyabanci; Lovegame is almost the same in every country. I think you should play it cool. Turkish girls have "affirmative action" on foreigners and you'll definitely get her. Just be cool.
  14. "Mehmet" is a very common name such as Jack, Georghe or Andy in UK. Sorry but you are literally chasing a dream. By the way,Istanbulwhiteboy, I'm a Turk and I've found your comment insultive. You are generalizing Turkish man and that's not cool. I agree that a lot of scammers exist but not all the waiters nor Turkish man are like that.
