Turkish dating rituals
If this type of flirtation seems too subtle, might I remind you of the guy from last week who asked “hey baby, wanna get lucky? If the man asks the woman out, it’s understood that he’s paying for the date. Instead, they have dinner parties on Friday or Saturday night.These can be formal sit-down dinners starting with champagne, or a casual last-minute invitation.
Many will read this and dismiss it as melodramatic, but I think that would be missing the point.It is becoming more and more common for both girls and boys to ask each other out.Sitting on the same side of the booth and touching while engaging in conversation is common in Spain, even on a first date.Instead, German men have a highly sophisticated wooing device: the concentrated look — a gaze which might, but often doesn’t, include a smile.
Most importantly, eye contact should be brief and fleeting.Later, they may arrange to meet for drinks at a bar, or stroll through a museum where they will say the word oeuvre over and over again until they are asked to leave. Flirting is just as serious in Turkey as it is in Germany, but the method is more direct: If a girl doesn’t know he’s interested, he’s got no shot at her.
