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 apps are not a good idea, because some people are not honest about their information and it can be very dangerous to meet someone in this way.

i think that dating apps are not the best way to meet others,especially for teenage girls which are going to be an easy target for perverts.

I’m just a normal person if you don’t want to say a super boring one. My life is miserable. I don’t have any interesting stories to tell, if I do these stories are from many years ago. I don’t know. Maybe because I spent all the time sitting before the screen or play video games. I always refuse to join any party or vacation, no matter how genuinely my friends try to invite me. I know somehow deep inside me, I enjoy the feeling of being important, to have someone begs me to have fun for my own sake. And until they pissed off, they get upset because why they have to try that hard to invite a person, who does not want to go at all. When that happens, I unconsciously start to make them feel guilt. I play the victim role, a poor one, and that’s the way I make my friends ‘remember’ me as apart of their vacation. Sadly, having me around is a true pain … I want to change it.

To be honest with you. I don't think dating apps is effective way to make a real relationships. Maybe it could be a nice way to meet new people trying to identify new cultures but I am not sure if it is going to be extended relationship and of course for every rule there is some exceptions.

I think date apps are not a good platform to meet people because there are many fake people exist in such kind of mediums.

As I am a such married person,I have never approached dating apps.According to my point of view, although it may has profound social changes,it's insecure for the girls.Life is not the words and it should be partical.We can use it for enjoyment but it's not the meat of life.Despite engaging the new technology in our daily life ,we should differentiate not only the benefits but also the risks.

I think it is not good idea to meet someone on internet for romanticly relationships. Because they can say so many lies to you, and of course you can say lies so easily. These people can share another person's pictures and a wrong facts about themselves. I think if you want to learn new language you can use these app for can be touch in with the persones that they speak and write the language you want to learn as a hometown language :)

Dating apps? My mom would be angry if i discussed this idea to them.This is a common thinking of Asia parents.But personally,dating apps are so unsafe.Bad person would make use of and access us easily.But it is also the good way to make acquaintances,not every one is bad guy,dangerous guy.So if you selected clearly,never mind,Let's enjoy beautiful moments .
