hello hoda,

Quite an important question that is not easy to answer! I will just write a few things and maybe add more another time. A little busy right now.
First of all..have you been to Turkey at all? Where are you from and how old are you? This helps me give you appropriate answers.
I am 44 and have been in Turkey for nearly one year, but have been coming here for the past 4 years.
I am Canadian and an actor and university student doing a BA in Women's Studies and Sexology.
Turkish peaple are very friendly and hospitable. This is a generalisation but I find they are as generous towards foriegners as Mexicans. I lived in Mexico for 1 year.
Turks are very reserved in public and rarely demonstrate extreme emotions. It is more respectible to be calm and poised. Even their body language is subdued in comparison to Latins.
Opps...I must go but will continue later...
Bye for nowbrea

Hello Hoda,

I will ask the same questions like brea before replying your question.
Where are you from ? and where is he from ? Where will you live if you marry ? What is your expectations from a city which you love to live, countryside, big city etc.

I'm also Turkish but living in Germany since 1.5 year. If you can answer these couple of questions, I would like to help..
Bye for now..
