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.

In my opinion, dating apps can be a good way to meet people, but it's a case-by-case situation. If you meet nice people, you're in luck, but if you don't, there's a risk from that person. Therefore, you should use dating apps carefully and not trust people easily.

Are dating apps a good way to meet people?

To be honest, I have used about three days of this app. I didn't like it. because it would take a lot of time to know someone, especially if you are not from one country. I have a lot of goals. that is why my time always has been planned and I prefer to spend my free time in the real world and socialize with people. but whenever I feel like having a chat with new people, I can use these apps. but I'm doing it without any intention of finding a real friend. In fact, these apps are good for superficial relationships.

Frankly, I don't want to rely on dating apps for finding a partner. On the other hand, they are excellent tools to chat with our friends and it makes the world to be a small village .

Yes, dating apps are good for meeting people, specially if what you want is love, but I prefer meet people primarly for fun and to get in contact with new perspectivies and cultures.

The dating app is an interesting option for meeting people. But for the original purpose, it is a comfortable way to get your lover. Maybe, you can try it if you like

In my opinion, dating apps are good way to meer people. But there are some possible danger when using them.
1. You can meet impolited people. You can get unwanted message from them.
2. You can meet bad people. They can take advantage of your trust to deceive you, hurt you...
So, we have to be sober when using dating apps.
