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.


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


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.

i think that dating app are good to meet people. Sometimes you can meet there someone who will became your partner. Sometimes, instead, you can meet there new friends from all over the word so you can improve your languages, discover new cultures, new types of cooking and new foods and maybe you can organize a meeting with these new friends and visit their city. but, i think , that you must be careful because it can happen that , the person you are chatting, isn't how he show you.

It is definetly a useful app. Many people now have friends and partners who used this dating apps. Believer or not, actually me and my wife met through this and now we are having beautiful life together. Thanks to this app creators. However you need to be careful when using this app, because there are many users who might be just looking for fun and there are other dark users and fake profiles who might put you in trouble. If you are clever enough to identify and ignore them then this app is useful for you.

Certainly are. This is a faster and easy way to meet someone because people from all over the world have an internet acces with smartphones and computers. This is very common, but there is the other side, when we meet someone by an internet we don't have enough attention on them, so this is dangerous we don't know this person.

Hi everyone! I think dating apps have only good side. Because they can help to lonely people to find each other and make a love. But it is hard to that.

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.
