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.

In my opinion, everything has their own misson. Dating apps was built to connect people, and it really useful for busy person who don't have much time going out to find the date. Just need everyone use this with right purpose, it's okay!

I'm a simple girl living a complicated life .. how exhausted it can be? Just kidding... I have most wonderful profession in the world, I'm a Vet. I'm surrounded by many animals that gave me each day love and care, and all of them see me as a hero. I love reading, especially novels... I have a goal to read at least twice novels per week, while I'm drinking a glass of rose wine. I live with my lovely parents, but usually, I spend summers at my country house in the mountain. I'm a professional cook, I can make various dessert and cake. Also, I'm a sports fan, I prefer to have an active weekend like hiking, swimming, diving or any other sport that I can share with you. I'm interested to meet a friendy, funny and wise boy.. at least we can be close friends. Using an app to meet people can sometimes be not safe manner, especially if you share your personal information and you are not enough mature to make right decision about yourself. There are many people who try to take advantage of these sites, and to fool young girls by promising them the world. Meeting someone face to face is the best choice especially if you know well his family.

In my opinion, The dating app can use to meet many people. But it does not mean we would meet a good person. It is hard to know who is good and can believe all word of him/her. I think we should see face to face to learn with each other.

In the early days of 20th century, Bumble, the so-called dating app will be an impossibility that no one thought we will ever need it. People these days, however, demanding such matching apps especially during the pandemic. As the civilization and urbanization grows, people across the globe are racing in a never-ending marathon for ivy league universities, high-yielding positions and promotions. That being said, there were less people hanging out at bars in the middle of the night searching a match. Since then, it is not surprising that these dating apps become prevailing and the industry has cemented its place in this modern world. On the other hand, seeing some people taking advantage of the aforementioned apps in order to get hook-ups is breaking my heart in pieces. No matter what views others may have, I believe that these match-making apps are actually designed to help people meet their emotional needs in the midst of their busy routines.

I'm 17 and I've never dated, although my harmonies I don't care about relationships. I don't think we must be always thinking about it, always thinking about being with someone. You don't have to be with someone to be happy. Obviously, love is very important but is not all in our lives. Currently, we'll find someone that likes us for what we are and you don't have to resort to technologies to find love.

I have never used dating apps but in my opinion they are also the good ways to meet people. we can get to know many people. at first we will ask about their profile personal and talk to them online. if not fit, do not continue to avoid wasting time.

Honestly, I haven't tried the dating apps yet. But in my opinion, everything has two sides to it, besides the positive side, there are negative aspects. Through dating apps, you can find somebody that has the same region, religion, hobbies, personalities with you. These make us easier to have sympathizing and sharing. After spending a period to chat up each other, we can date and have a long-term relationship in real life. However, some bad guys took advantage of these apps to fool around with gullible persons. They lost both love and money. So we should be careful when making dating through these apps.
