My profile

About me

By day I'm a regular guy and by night a superhero … How tiring is that?!

Just joking! I'm a regular guy all the time, good job, close to my family, just bought my own flat with a cat. Actually, my cat thinks I'm a hero because I saved her from the street. I'm a talkative person and I believe communication is the most important thing in a relationship.

Likes and dislikes

I love pizza if it's Italian, wine if it's white, and football if it's the World Cup. I read a lot, especially true life stories, but most of my books live on my phone.

Hobbies

I love to travel and I'm always planning my next trip. I prefer an active holiday like hiking, skiing or watersports and I get bored lying on the beach. I post lots of photos on Instagram as I'm a good photographer but I'd really love to share the holiday with someone. Maybe you'll take the photos on the next trip. wink

Tips

1. Write about your good points, not your bad points.

2. Don’t include every single thing. Choose a few points and focus on them.

3. Don’t add your contact details (e.g. address, phone number). You could get unwanted messages.

4. Check your spelling and punctuation before you post.

5. You can use punctuation and emojis when you’re joking, e.g. ?! and wink.

In the early days of 20th century, Bumble, the so-called dating app will be an impossibility that no one thought we will ever need it. People these days, however, demanding such matching apps especially during the pandemic.

As the civilization and urbanization grows, people across the globe are racing in a never-ending marathon for ivy league universities, high-yielding positions and promotions. That being said, there were less people hanging out at bars in the middle of the night searching a match. Since then, it is not surprising that these dating apps become prevailing and the industry has cemented its place in this modern world.

On the other hand, seeing some people taking advantage of the aforementioned apps in order to get hook-ups is breaking my heart in pieces. No matter what views others may have, I believe that these match-making apps are actually designed to help people meet their emotional needs in the midst of their busy routines.

I'm 17 and I've never dated, although my harmonies I don't care about relationships. I don't think we must be always thinking about it, always thinking about being with someone. You don't have to be with someone to be happy. Obviously, love is very important but is not all in our lives. Currently, we'll find someone that likes us for what we are and you don't have to resort to technologies to find love.

I have never used dating apps but in my opinion they are also the good ways to meet people. we can get to know many people. at first we will ask about their profile personal and talk to them online. if not fit, do not continue to avoid wasting time.

Honestly, I haven't tried the dating apps yet. But in my opinion, everything has two sides to it, besides the positive side, there are negative aspects. Through dating apps, you can find somebody that has the same region, religion, hobbies, personalities with you. These make us easier to have sympathizing and sharing. After spending a period to chat up each other, we can date and have a long-term relationship in real life. However, some bad guys took advantage of these apps to fool around with gullible persons. They lost both love and money. So we should be careful when making dating through these apps.

Actually I didn't try dating from apps before, but, I think it is not a good way to meet unknown people.

No, i think offline is the best way to meet,but today’s generation prefer to go online to meet new people.

No, i think that the best way to meet with another person is face to face.
Contact is very important for me. However, right now it is impossible caused by the coronavirus crisis. I dont like dating app.

I believe in ''everything has advantage and disadvantage'' so the dating apps could be good thing and bad thing, because from the apps you may mate the person who you want him.
I think the best decision to made is not being a hasty.

I don't know much about dating applications and I don't think it isn't the correct way to meet new people.

Honestly, for me, it's quite difficult to answer because I've never used any dating apps. Actually, the only person I want dating is my wife. We've known each other for years and when we first met there weren't any dating apps at all. Telling the truth there weren't any smartphones too. If you wanted to meet someone in those days you had to go to a disco or pub or concert or other public places and made your first step in a real-life without any profiles and nicknames. And you could get a flat refusal in real-time either. That was hurting but yeap that how it was in my dating time.
So, I can clearly decide are those apps are good or bad? Anyway, if it helps you to not be alone it's good anyhow.
