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.

Honestly, for me, it's quite difficult to answer because I've never used any dating apps. Actually, the only person I want dating is my wife. We've known each other for years and when we first met there weren't any dating apps at all. Telling the truth there weren't any smartphones too. If you wanted to meet someone in those days you had to go to a disco or pub or concert or other public places and made your first step in a real-life without any profiles and nicknames. And you could get a flat refusal in real-time either. That was hurting but yeap that how it was in my dating time.
So, I can clearly decide are those apps are good or bad? Anyway, if it helps you to not be alone it's good anyhow.

Thanks for this lesson

There are some excellent points in my life. I read a lot, especially true-life stories.
I always prefer to start my day early. That is generating the power which I need to complete my day. I find myself in travel and mobility between new places on holiday just if I was sharing it with someone. I'd love watching TV, especially news and horror movies. Also, I feel so happy when I help poor people. Sometimes if I couldn't help them, I pray from my sincere heart to Allah to help them.

Like many things, there are positive and negative arguments on whether or not to be in dating apps. About the positive points, it could help someone to meet people, especially when the person just arrives at a new place and do not know anyone. Some dating apps are not only for seeking a relationship. For instance, some afford meeting people just for a drink. About the negative points, it seems difficult to determines your will to speak with someone only from photos and a short biography. Dating apps are mostly based on appearances and it is quite damaging because the personality of someone is as well as important, perhaps more important. Also, dating apps are based on virtuallity. It is easier to speak with someone through a smartphone than face to face.

Adding data apps is not such a good idea, if they are given with more details. We should keep us safer nowadays anyway.

I think that dating apps are not a good idea, because some people are not honest about their information and it can be very dangerous to meet someone in this way.

i think that dating apps are not the best way to meet others,especially for teenage girls which are going to be an easy target for perverts.

I’m just a normal person if you don’t want to say a super boring one.

My life is miserable. I don’t have any interesting stories to tell, if I do these stories are from many years ago.
I don’t know. Maybe because I spent all the time sitting before the screen or play video games. I always refuse to join any party or vacation, no matter how genuinely my friends try to invite me.
I know somehow deep inside me, I enjoy the feeling of being important, to have someone begs me to have fun for my own sake. And until they pissed off, they get upset because why they have to try that hard to invite a person, who does not want to go at all.
When that happens, I unconsciously start to make them feel guilt. I play the victim role, a poor one, and that’s the way I make my friends ‘remember’ me as apart of their vacation.
Sadly, having me around is a true pain …
I want to change it.

To be honest with you. I don't think dating apps is effective way to make a real relationships.
Maybe it could be a nice way to meet new people trying to identify new cultures but I am not sure if it is going to be extended relationship and of course for every rule there is some exceptions.
