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.

Perhaps, I honestly never met anyone from a dating app but I guess its a good way to meet new people with interesting personality. I've known some friends who are so keen to make new acquiantance with random people on dating apps.

Hi
I would like to ask a question about the word ' guy'. Do we use it to refer to mascline persons only?
Thank you!

Hello Amelle,

Sometimes it refers to males only, but much of the time, particularly when we use it to address a group of people, it refers to both males and females. You might find it useful to compare the entries for 'guy' and 'guys'. If there's a particular context you'd like understand better, please explain it to us in more detail and we can try to help you.

All the best,

Hi Kirk,
Thanks a lot for your reply. It was really helpful for me . I'd like to know if this sentence is correct: I ( a female) am a regular guy.

Thank you

Regards
Amal

Hi Amelle-TechLearnEnglish,

You can certainly hear this used so it is correct but it is still unusual to use 'guy' for a single female; 'girl' or 'woman' is much more common - or various dialectical forms like 'lass' or 'gal'.

At the moment 'guys' for groups (of any gender, mixed or not) is much more common. However, the language is changing and this use of 'guy' is becoming more popular over time.

Like any other way of meeting people, dating apps may have both benefist and drawbacks. Dating online offers you the chance to meet people of different characters and lifestyles in a very short time. However, communication online may lack some important information about the partner . Thus, it will be difficult for you to evaluate the partner. In addition, dating apps make the relationship less emotional and more artificial.

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.
