Dating istanbul

17 Oct

We entered the market in 2006 and the concept was a local dating site based around city neighborhoods.There’s about 35 million Internet users in Turkey at this time and about 1/3 are under 15. There’s actually no real translation for the word ‘dating’ in Turkey. Our users don’t want to really disclose their identity.Religion here, at least outside of Istanbul and Ankara, is non-negotiable. The bottom line may not be the most important factor at first, but it is definitely a factor as things progress.The dating couples are adorable here, sneaking glances between each other, grasping fingers quietly in class, and hugging in the booths while drinking tea. Over the years we have expanded our network into different cities adding a new one this month.

has some great services for Istanbul singles looking for a longer term relationship.Over a lovely meal last night, some friends and I were discussing dating in Turkey.Even though I've lived here for almost seven months now, some of the differences still surprise me. (Keep in mind most of this is more applicable to the dating scene outside of Istanbul, by far the most "western"-oriented city) An amazing journalist living here in Turkey interviewed four women about the level of happiness in their lives, in relation to their marital status and conditions for women in Turkey.The ladette era of the 90’s prompted females to demand independence and if they wanted to have a one night stand and walk away in the morning, they were going to do it, whether their public reputation was tarnished or not.Therefore, when I moved to Turkey, I was in for a shock, especially when it came to the dating scene.
