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.

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..

The dating apps are a good way to meet people but I think this way can be dangeorus because you don't know the other person very well. I prefer don't share personal information with strangers because the information could use for cybercrime.

Hello, everyone. I confess that I don't like, and do not have the patience to use these apps, but especially nowadays where people can't go out to meet people at parties, pubs, university, etc... I think these apps are useful and positive. However, is necessary to be careful with persons on the internet. It's good to look for other profiles, verify the common friends, and communicate to persons of your confidence if you decide to meet this "unknown" person. Another important tip for these cases is to date a person that you only know on the internet in public spaces. To finish, just take care of yourself and enjoy the technological facilities.

Hi, how are all? Honestly idk cause i never use this apps but i think in this days a lot of people use this type of apps and i don't think is bad though always to be careful when you meet with other person and you don't know who it is and what is her/him intentios with you. For me is very difficult to meet people and have a date thanks for dating apps. I prefer to use instagram or twitter but i never have a date thanks to these apps because i'm very shy when i meet people

It's ok but I think if we find friends in the real world like the gym, it would be better.

Nowadays, it is normal to meet people on dating apps. sometimes people meet other good people.
I think dating apps can be useful for those who are lonely.

I believe that apps dating are not good way to meet friends because the people using social media are always share with an amazing things and you believe that as true story but when you meet the guy face on face you will see his real face.
finally i don’t like to make friends through the apps.
