Now in America and in the UK, jealousy is a green monster that most people have a strong distaste for.Here in Turkey, if you are not jealous of whom your partner speaks to, looks at, or hangs out with, it is the equivalent of raising a small flag that states, “I don’t love him/her.” It also doesn’t matter how many times you try and explain the cultural difference—they won’t change their minds.By the end of the day I would be asked by either my boss or friends if there would be a date soon. In the beginning you think you are royalty, but the best way to make sure you are safe is to use common sense.In Turkey there are different social norms that you have to follow.If you say no to them once, they will ask again, or they will lie low until you notice them again.To me this was so bizarre because in the States most men get anxious even asking a girl out (kudos to those who have the courage to take that risk).Here it is all about being continually conscious about what others are thinking, both if they see you alone with someone, or if a guy is asking you to hang out.At the same time, typical Turkish men are not always to blame.
