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 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 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.

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.

I think you can use the dating apps to meet friends in a general way. You can get in touch with different people. But you should pay attention in the security affairs.

No, i don't think that dating apps are good to meet people. There are many problems with meeting people on internet becasue they probably upload fake dates. Maybe they have bad intentions. Also, had a closed touching with somebody in your life its more true because you know him/her and could know their skills and defaults. Although if you know somebody who are for you, don't care whou you know him/her.

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.
