Hello all,I recently started dating a Turkish girl I live in the United States and she is here working for the summer. I am extremely interested in her so far, it has only been about a week of us hanging out, but I think she is very interested in me as well. I just want to know some of the customs and best practices for dating a Turkish woman. The best advice I've seen has been to buy then things--gold, etc.

We both live in the UK, she is fluent in English and like me was born here, we are both in our early 20's too at met during our degree at University and are now both studying a masters in London. The relationship is good, it has its draw backs, which I shall get to later on in this post, however on the whole it is fine. As I mentioned before we are both still studying in further education and we both regard this as a priority right now. My issue is the fact that we have been together for 1 year and 8 months, and her parents still do not know of my existence, they don't even know she has a boyfriend let alone me in particular. As she is in her early 20's her parents have lived in the UK for this whole time, however cannot speak english. Until then it shouldn't be mentioned. Despite this I have met her cousin, basically her sister within the turkish culture.
Sex and Dating in Turkey
One thing I have wanted to write about for a while in this column is the view of sex and dating in Turkey. I have watched mostly foreign and some Turkish friends grapple with dating and all its highs and—more often—lows, and have become endlessly fascinated with the subject. Although it is not something I have to partake in, it is a subject that fascinates me. A Turkish male friend once told me that one night stands are not really a thing, and especially not for women no big surprise there.
Marriage between different nationalities comes with its own challenges, settling in abroad foremost among them. For the last four years, Parliament has been working on a project to improve life, especially for married Turkish women living abroad. A recent study dealing with marriages between different nationalities abroad was presented to the subcommittee called "Problems and Solutions for Turkish Women living abroad, Turkish women who have given up their citizenship, and their families," which was established under the Committee on Equality of Opportunity for Women and Men. Starting in , the project carried out field studies in France, Belgium and the Netherlands in its first two years. The project is undertaken with the cooperation of nongovernmental organizations and government authorities, and regular training sessions have been held to find solutions, especially for married Turkish women living in abroad.
