The personality traits of a gentleman, smooth talker, romantic, and extreme flirt are all wrapped together to give you the typical Turkish man.
At first encounter you will be charmed, wooed, and certainly enchanted by his “going-out-of-their-way” hospitality and attention. Some men have ulterior motives, and some will definitely get you into trouble.
I’m also not trying to create a stereotype about typical Turkish men.

I didn’t date much in high school or at university, and I wasn’t given much attention by men. I am a self-proclaimed bookworm and nerd to the core, so nothing could keep me from the gorgeous university libraries or research lounges.
My experience with speaking or talking with guys all came from my two best male friends and my two big brothers–obviously nothing romantic or flirtatious there.
I had heard stories of getting lots of extra attention from men if you were naturally blonde or red-headed, but that seemed normal since those are very distinct foreign looks.
Nonetheless, I had a rude awakening about the characteristics of typical Turkish men within the first month I lived in Turkey.
Furthermore, I thought that having tea or coffee with a new male friend would mean nothing because how could tea or coffee be anything but harmless?
Now, this type does not describe all Turkish men, because I have met some really great male friends while in Turkey.
That being said, here are three things I have learned about typical Turkish men: If you are casually asked to have coffee or tea, and politely decline, that may stop them—for a few minutes.
Not all of these traits or experiences are only a result of Turkish-ness.
Some of the stories that I have heard have been due to women beginning the flirtation themselves, and some men have a view of all Western women as being the same as women in movies.
When I first came to Turkey, I was given no warning about how typical Turkish men would act.
I wondered if they would be anything like American men, the only type I knew, or if the culture would alter their personality completely.
