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.

Socializing, nowadays, is just one click away from everyone. There are countless platforms where one can meet people wherever they come from. Dating apps are one of them. It allows people to intermingle with someone they match with, regardless of their nationality, race, or location. People who use these apps give a brief description of themselves such as gender, hobbies, personality, and even a photo. This would help users to find their match, with whom they share the same interests.
Dating apps, just like any other platforms, has its advantage and disadvantage. It is advantageous in a way that users can easily come across and get to know different people. However, most of the apps do not verify whether the information given in the profile of the users is factual. Even the photos being uploaded are not validated. Thus, some users can easily fake their identities to fool/scam other people.
Everything has its risks. Hence, at the end of the day, it all falls down to the user's vigilance. Especially to people we just met online. as we are expected to have rational minds to know whom we can put our trusts with.

I do not think so, because dating apps have some dangerous parts.We do not know if the other person is true with these apps, therefor, it is possible that the other person is impersonating someone else. This is very scary. In the first place, almost people do not expose themselves in dating apps.In addition to that, those apps can also get us involved in crime. In Japan, sex crimes using dating apps are increasing. From those reasons, I don not think that dating apps are a good way to meet people. If you want to build real relationships, using those apps would not be right. It is difficult to have an intimate relationship because you do not know what the other person really is.However, not all users are lying. If you use these apps, you need to use the latest precautions and figure out which is the lie.

Dating apps are for meeting people, it has two sides the good one and the bad one
The good one, it helps to know people and meet themto enjoy your time, and to make good relations and maybe it helps you to exchange informations share knowledge and get it in the same time
the bad one, is that you don't know the person behind the message or his purpose , it can be so dangerous and causes problems.

Dating apps are very interesting. What do you think about using them? They have good points. Of course, they also have bad points. But I think they are good tools to meet people. Because I believe things have changed depending on the era and adopting new things is impressive.
They have two good points. If we use dating apps, we can meet people who we can’t meet. For instance, if I live in Japan, I can’t easily meet people who live in Canada, Norway, Africa like these. But if I use them, I can do it. And I believe meeting new people make life more fruitful.
And then by using dating apps, we can know about the other person. Especially, many Japanese people are shy, including me. We aren’t good at talking with people who first meet. So, if we use them, we can talk without being nervous. However, we shouldn’t forget that to talk and meet face-to-face is important.
On the other hand, there is a bad point. Using dating apps can be dangerous. By not to meet people face-to-face, knowing the truth about the other person is very difficult. Maybe the other person tells lies, and we get tricked. If that’s the case, we can be involved in the incident. We can’t believe everything what the other person says.
I think using dating apps is the good way to meet new people. But we have to be careful how to use them. If we use them well, they can be wonderful tools to meet new people. Our world is going to expand!!

I think it depends. The application is the reliable system and thinks that you may use it there if the quality of the registering person is good. Not the application that anyone can easily register, I think that application with the examination is good for registration. Otherwise, you may not be able to trust the other person's profile, and if the profile is false, you may feel uncomfortable or at risk. I think there are a variety of needs for people who really want to meet naturally, but who can't, or who don't want to waste their time finding someone who seems to fit their hobbies or personalities. In fact, a lot of people need such apps and tools.
It's true that there are people who lie or abuse their profiles, but you should be prepared to use the app to protect yourself.I think the most important thing is for everyone to follow the rules and use them correctly.

I think ,It depend's on person to person.How we are taking this type of apps which all are unknown.yes there will definate chance to face unwanted situation.what will be our approach to handle that moment.one of the best option is that, there are lot of personalities available here.

I think dating apps are not good to meet people. I think there’re some risks. Actually , my friend used dating apps before and she talked with some people, then she got some bitter words by email. I started to be afraid of dating apps after listening to her story. I’m I think there’re more danger things. For example, private information is exposed and people are cheated. We aren’t able to know the other’s picture and the story is real or not. I also think the financial trouble will happen.
I knew people who use dating apps are increasing because we aren’t able to go out and meet people so they look for others to tell or talk with them. However, there’ re people who use dating apps in wrong way. I think to know other’s personality well is important before meeting people and it decreases to be caught in problem.
I also know the apps is useful to make friends or meet parter. It’s easy and early to do that. Therefore I want them to know the risk of the apps to avoid some problem. It’s important to distinguish true or fake. I want people to use dating apps.

Yes, I am. I agree to date using dating apps. Since it is unlikely that you will meet people with your own hobbies and special skills just by living normally, you need to actively use the tools of the application. The app also has a function that automatically searches for people according to their hobbies and special skills, so the app has the potential to meet so-called "destined people". Certainly, when you meet someone you meet for the first time using a dating app, you may be kidnapped or, in the worst case, killed. At least there are such incidents. However, unless you do something recklessly to get in touch with them as soon as you get in touch, you are much less likely to encounter a crime. In fact, my friend was able to get a girlfriend using a dating apps. At that time, he said "I am really happy using a dating app. I hope you will use it again". That's why I have not used dating app yet, but I would like to try it if I have the opportunity.

this apps are very useful. because you can find somebody that you are not any information about him or her and find something about a stranger, can be a very very interesting ...

I think it's depends, because I've already met people nice and boring in the app. So, I generylly use this apps form start a conversation.
