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 it is not the best way to use dating apps to help people meet someone because they do not know well the personality or the habits of the person that they meet and whether the photo profile of the person posted in social media is real or not. There is a possibility for the person to cheat them, for example, the person may want to borrow some money from them for solving his problem and promise to repay it later. In fact, the person only wants the money and he will disappear after getting it.

Dating applications are good if people used them at a useful way.

Dating apps is good if you use true mode. But when people, especially youngs use wrong through, they live a lot of problem. in fact they make crime.

sometimes, i think that with the dating apps we can make friend easier with others, especially introverts. But it also allows bad people to pose a danger to you. Everything seems to be like that, so, we need to be careful when using

I am not sure if dating apps are a good way to meet people because you are interacting with someone you don't know is a trustworthy person.

Are dating apps a good way to meet people? We can not simply assume it is good or bad, every coin has two sides. So we can think of this from two perspectives. From the good, it is easy, convenient to make new friends and keep in touch with old friends by regularly chat or video with them. From bad side, we even don't know the real information of a person who is chatting with you,so if you get ready to meet him(her),it is very dangerous, we have to distinguish who is good who is bad.
