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.

Hobbies

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

Tips

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.

Hi.
According to me dating apps are basically meant for two people to meet. It depends on them whether to become a couple or not. I have never been on dating apps. I have heard the feedback from my friends saying their meeting was great with new people at times and tragic on other days.

I think for many people dating apps is a good way. We live in the time of high technology, but low "live communication" and a lot of people feel loneliness

I’m an ordinary person in ordinary life. I have a good family, a good job, wonderful children, a lot of good people around me and I try to be in good mood. I’m a typical introvert, but I love life and love to live. Some people in my life are mine and I can communicate with them very easily, some people are not comfortable for me and I try not to communicate with them. I love dark coffee and milk chocolate. I read a lot early, I work a lot now. I love to travel and I enjoy visiting new places, try new food, meet new people and experience new emotions.

In the old times, people had met other people in the cafe or during activities. Nowadays due to covid 19 and development technologies individuals prefer to choose dating apps to meet people. That is the easiest way to meet a person. Due to feeling relaxed dating apps is a good way to meet. Every developing tech has its advantages and disadvantages. Although in the old times, meeting a person during activities is a good way Nowadays we choose dating apps because ıts easy and we don't get nervous during sending messages. Therefore ı am a dating apps advocate.

I think it depends on with whom you are meeting through the social media applications. I have used Tinder before and met people who are rude and being disrespectful towards me and on the other hand I met someone who loved me and helped me find a job too.

As everything dating apps have advantages and disadvantages. On the one hand, they help to make lovers, but on the other hand, many dating apps don't check their users correctly, that is why you can find there people with bad intentions.
