February 1, Alright guys, I know this kind of posts always spark the flame in the hearts of many. So, Ill just be straightup and let it all out, and I would really appreciate if you all reply decently understanding that I am serious and not looking to score, instead am genuinely seeking information and help from the wonderful people who contribute to this forum.
Ok, now lets talk about my case. I am a muslim man in my late 20s. During my higher studies in Canada I met this Turkish girl and she was the sweetest thing I ever witnessed in my life. Everything that I looked for in my wife. But after I was done with my studies, I had to come back to my own country, and she had to stay back in Canada and unfortunately, somehow our relationship didnt workout.
It might have been my fault, or maybe both of our fault. At the moment, thats not important, but whats important is, I lost one of the most precious persons in my life. Now, its been more than 6 years since I have come back to my country but I still cant get over her, and when I say her, I also mean the culture, way she was brought up, her dedication towards religion, etc.
Overtime, all of a sudden when I understood that I have lost all interest in women from my country, I realized I was not only in love with my ex-gf but also in love with her culture. I loved everything about how the religious turkish women were.
Reserved and traditional yet modern, family-oriented, in a nutshell, the kind of person I always wanted as my wife. Now this situation put me in serious trouble, since I can't connect to girls from my country anymore, and I dont live in the country the culture of which I love from the bottom of my heart. So, here I am. Alhumdulillah, I am in a position in my life where I have everything materialistic in life, travel the world like crazy, MashaAllah thanks to my father who happens to be an industrialist, and now I am slowly taking over my family business.
But, money doesn't buy happiness if you dont have it to share with someone special. I tried to convince myself to settle down with someone from my country, but when I flew to Istanbul this year for the first time and made some friends, I realized how much I admire Turkish culture. It might sound a bit awkward, but thats when I realized deep inside I want to marry someone from Turkey, I tried convincing myself not to be specific, but the heart dont listen to anyone. You all understood that somehow over the course of your life.
So, Finally, I was genuinely wondering if moderately- religious Turkish women are willing to marry a foreigner muslim man with somewhat similar mindset like moderately - religious Turkish men. I think I am a nice person, somewhat romantic , love to travel, a very family oriented individual.
So, can someone give me an idea of how I can at least go about the process! Like, going to Istanbul and maybe renting an apartment and living there for sometime, maybe a marriage agency? Are there marriage agencies in Turkey? Or even post an ad on newspaper!! Will the family accept? Will she be willing to relocate to another country? Although I can always visit Turkey whenever she misses her parents Too many questions in my head now.
Because I have no clue what I should do next but I just want to move forward in my life and have a family. If you dont like my post, please ignore it, but dont be disrespectful please, because I genuinely am seeking for advice from all you Turkish friends out there, because I truly am in love with your culture and want a wife with all the qualities that your culture teaches them to have. Thanks guys for taking the time to read this boring post.
Any kind of advice and help from my fellow Turkish friends would be highly appreciated. Hope to someday see you in Turkey.
