How do turkish men find women?
I'm living here for more than one and a half years. My Turkish isn't fluent, but I'm able to keep a friendly conversation. The problem is that men almost don't come to me to meet me(for example, introducing themselves, asking my phone number, etc.) No, it happened around four times to me, but it is much-much less, compared to how much it happened in my home country before. My appearance is fine, and it obviously didn't change since I left my home country and moved to Turkey. It may be important, I am a muslim, and I wear a modern muslim dress(hijab), similar to what ladies wear here. In my country islamophobia is kinda on the rise, and people know that I wouldn't date a non-muslim, but they still come and offer to date me. Here everything seems right, but it just doesn't happen(well, happened, but not much). Turkish men are said to give a lot of attention to women in general(I do not mean beach boys, waiters in the tourist zone, I just mean people in general; it could be in any form, like smiling, talking, etc), but I feel lack of attention, like there's a woid around me. The difference is big, compared to my home country (where men are often characterized as "cold"). What do I wrong?
Maybe there are some signs of body language I don't understand, that I'm supposed to see and reply(how??)? Some things seem weird to me, for example, if there's a man on the bus stop, he'll stay a bit further away, sometimes even on the edge of the bus stop. It's discouraging and upsetting. And owerall some men are acting like you don't exist at all.
I asked one of my friends about dating sites in Turkey, he said that they have a really bad reputation and "only perverts use them". I don't think that's true. But if not meeting on the street(is it found offencive in Turkish culture?) and not on dating sites, then where? How do turkish men meet women? There are a lot of the people I know, and they are married. Or having a girlfriend. Muslims and atheists. It means they somehow met the woman and initiated the contact. I'm not comfortable to share this problem with them.
Dear Turkish Men! Where do you meet woman and how do you initiate contact with them? What do I do wrong?
If you're not Turkish, you can ask your friend. Or, maybe as a forieigner, you had the same experience?
