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.

Well, it depends, you should always be careful when meeting new people in apps because you don't really know that person and if they're really nice. But if you're careful and don't give out important information, that's OK.

Hi! have a nice day
for me, i do not think that dating apps are perfect choices because nowadays there are many applications created to meet the needs of society so the rate of bad people has also increased, we need to use the social media in a healthy way

Hi !
I don't think that the dating apps are the best way to meet people.
I think face to face meetings are "more appropriated".
Effectivaly, there are attraction and feelings who are created when two persons meet them face to face while apps dating can be dangerous sometimes.
Now, I can understand that some people need that the kind of apps because they are reserved.
I'm not agree with these apps dating but I can believe that many people have found love on the net :)

Can anyone recommend a app for making friends.

Actually, I'm not sure because I've never used any dating app. But I think using dating app is not the best way to meet people. We can meet and connect with people by using dating app. However, you shouldn't trust all the people who you know online because you don't know their actual background and their true intentions. If it is used just for fun, it may not have any problem. As for me, I prefer to use Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. In these days, people can't go outside so much because of the pandemic , it is difficult to meet one another in person, so the social media apps are very useful for communication. I agree that they are really useful, we can easily meet and connect with friends , family and colleagues via using these staffs. But , to be safe, it is the best to be careful and don't share your private information too much when making new friends with strangers.

In my opinion, the dating apps aren't very good for meeting people. If you're getting bored of being alone and wanna flirt with someone, those apps might work at risk. I prefer walking around parks and downtown for making friend.

Hi everyone. I think that the dating apps are positive actually, as long as we use them correctly. Is not good give a lot information, and we have to go slow... We must try to get to know other people before we meet them.

I don't use apps because I don't have a phone, but I use my computer for connected to the social media and meet people.

I don't think this is a good way to get to know people, because you don’t know the background of that person, and you don’t know the true intentions of that person. To be safe, it is best not to go out with unfamiliar people.

Although the technology is developing in these days, I think the dating apps are not the best apps for us. If we use it only for fun, it would give you some happiness. But if you use it for real, you must take care of yourself in everything. Everything can't say useless. We should use these with lots of carefulness..
