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.

For me, dating apps are not very reliable, in fact, they can be very dangerous. that is why I believe that the best way to meet someone will always be in real life.

My profile:

I'm a girl that love read and talk about books. I'm a graduated of Hotelier managament and love the area of food and berevage. It's so beautiful!
In my free time, I usually watch K-dramas, animated films, read fantasy books and by the moment I'm looking for a job. While I'm in that process, I have as a goal, develop my english skills to have a more outstanding professional profile.

That's me! bye!

Personally, I believe dating apps cause a mix of opinions.Some people really enjoy them, whereas others don't have a lot of luck when using them.

There are some risks attached to using dating apps and I prefer to meet people face to face doing something i'm interested in. That way at least I know we have something in common.

I don't think so. First, those dating app could be a life threat, let me clarify my point more, when you meet someone on the app , you don't know him very well, so he could utilize this app to rape you or whatever, he could use it as a way to kidnap you. So, it's better to know someone in the real life.

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.

About me
I am a simple guy with big ambition, from Nepal, working full time in Qatar. Although I’m far from my family, I love to spend time with them. Mostly I spend my free time learning new things or talking with friends and family.

Like and dislike
I love to read a book. I read a lot of blogs on the internet. I love to watch educational and science videos on Youtube.

Without traveling, life isn’t fun. There is nothing I could do without fun. I am always planning a vacation where to explore next. We might travel together some time, cheers!

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
