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.

Are dating apps a good way to meet people? I think that the dating apps is good to find people with common interests, and maybe in the first meet you can decide if you want to deep in that friendship.

It is a good app but on the other hand it is bad. I've two best friends who use that app. One day they met their partners by using dating app and they decided to meet their boyfriends.When they dated, one of their boyfriends was not real. He lied his personal information on the profile. But the other man filled in actual inform and this couple have married last month.

Nowadays, dating apps became more useful than ever. Due to pandemic, people get bored more and more. The feeling of loneliness increasing day by day. People have remembered recently how bad is loneliness. The 21st century's dynamics are becoming more individual and independent. It's a side effect of capitalism. However, dating apps are also the results of capitalism, and I don't believe the apps at all.

I don’t trust dating apps, maybe because I am teenager? But I heard a lot of stories about how people found their true love with that way. The most important thing that you have to remember to meet in public place, have conversation before meeting and be collected with brain

In my opinion, dating app is a good channel for finding new friends that you don't have chance to meet them from your working and studying environment.

In my opinion dating Apps may be a good way to meet new people. It becomes more and more popular. Now it doesn't matter how you meet people in reality or in virtual world. The most important is to meet and talk, not sit alone in front of the computer and eat crisps.
