    Merhaba! Nasılsınız?

    I was wondering if I translated the following correctly:

    Aldanmışım: beni hiç sevmedi sevemedi. Niçin? Sevmeyi bilmezmiş.

    I was wrong (sudden realization): he never loved me, he couldn't. Why? He didn't/doesn't know how to. (?)

    Thank you all. :)

    That's a pretty accurate translation. To pick between didn't and doesn't, I recommend the former in cases where he's no more, as in out of picture in some way, and the latter in other cases where he's still around.

    Nicely done.

    "I was deceived" is a better translation for "Aldanmışım" than "I was wrong".
