When the time is right, he'll introduce you to his parents and it'll be fine.
He's a smart guy for not introducing you to the parents too early because the way it works with Turkish families is that they make a big deal out of dating/relationships etc.
He knew I wanted to meet them, but it never happened.
He has got no guts to introduce you to his parents,cos he is afraid of them,they will tell him off to find a US girl to marry rather than a nice Muslim Turkish girl.
Because he needs their approval to marry you,(a non muslim girl)These are facts of my country sweetheart! Its up to you, you maybe be always treated as a yabanci if you chose to live in turkey,you take the risk,see how much of a muture man he is in the future.
Because we are from different countries, and everyone can be so different, I'm not sure to believe it or not.
Can anyone (familiar w/Turkish cultures) give me some advise on this?
) you need to get your communication and understanding started right now!
Also remember that chances are even if you were living with an american there would be times you wouldn't understand him either! I find Turkish man like a watermelon you are really not able to check its quality from outside ,looking at its skin. I am ashamed of my myself being a Turk reading that story! Hi I just wanted to say that I am British and my boyfriend is Turkish and he couldnt wait for me to meet his family which I did after about 3 weeks of being together..
We have a great relationship, he treats me well, we spend lots of time together, etc..
We're in love, but there has been a few problems recently that are kind of throwing me off.
Your boyfriend is right, even though the family is OK with their son dating non-Turkish girls, meeting a Turkish family means a lot more than meeting an American family.
I wouldn't be worried about this, if you love him, be with him and don't think about this.
Im just really upset because I felt like such a piece of dirt that he didnt introduce me to them.
