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.

No, I haven't used any dating apps to meet people yet.

Hello for everyone,
I think that apps are not a good way to meet people because some people are dangerous and to present a risk for beginners that believe to find love in this form.

Hello! I am Nick Reva, Russia.
I think yes! Dating apps are usefull.
I used to use a dating website, but that was many years ago before I got married...
That is a good way to meet with another person. There are many cases then commucation on websites or in apps grew into serious relations and further marriage.

hi everybody
I'm Johnny Dao, this is the first comment I have posted. I am very happy to join this forum. Have a good week!

Hi Peter,

I have recently heard about the importance of LSI (Latent semantic indexing) words especially when writing essays.

What is your take on LSI words when it comes to writing high-quality content?
Are those just synonym words with a new fancy name?

Thank you,

Hi Altay Gursel,

LSI is related to how computer systems such as search engines analyse language content, and an awareness of how LSI works can provide some ideas about how to make intenet content more visible in online search results. LSI as used as a tool for website creation is not about the quality of the language, but rather how visible it is to online search engines.

This is not really my area of expertise. I deal with language systems and language learning, not how language is interpreted, collated and analysed by computers.

Hi, Everyone!
I'm PeterNguyen, 22 years old, and I'm a student. I'm very happy, due I take part in our community. I want to talk to you more than about customs, culture in your country. For me, I think that the dating app is useful to connect together. but I think we should be careful about your choice. In my country, I saw numerous love make relationship on the internet, most of them divorced.
I thank you for reading your text.
I hope we will be friends,
Thank

I had never tried a dating app, but I know a couple who found themselves in the Internett. They have a good marriage and tre childrens.

hello, I'm really an outgoing man, I usually read and do some puzzles at home. I don't like to share my things with others, I always prefer my own things. I 'm really good at maths but I hate history classes. I'm addicted to my cellphone and similar to my dad. I scared of dogs and cats. I love candies but I dislike cakes, also I enjoy painting and watch documentaries movies.
best regards.
