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 think it depends on with whom you are meeting through the social media applications. I have used Tinder before and met people who are rude and being disrespectful towards me and on the other hand I met someone who loved me and helped me find a job too.

As everything dating apps have advantages and disadvantages. On the one hand, they help to make lovers, but on the other hand, many dating apps don't check their users correctly, that is why you can find there people with bad intentions.

Hi! I would say that I am quite in between of being an extrovert and an introvert person. I love making friends. I also love traveling. I hope someday I could travel around the world with my loved ones. I also into sports, like swimming, volleyball, badminton, and table tennis. I am also planning to try other sports such as ice skating, horseback riding, and tennis. That's all I can say. Thank you!! :>

My profile

About me

I'm a truly busy guy because I prefer to do the things that are worthwhile and fit with my goals and objectives. At the same time, I am quite regular in my whole life; therefore, I am going forward with the tasks that have a higher priority. When my family needs my help, I’m ready to help them as much as possible.

Hobbies

I love learning new languages all the time, and I work very hard to acquire and understand new knowledge and phenomena related to the new language. I also play cards and chess as I find free time with friends.

I think that datting apps have two sides. First one, these apps help us make a lot of friends, we can share each other's interests and we can learn things from friends and also two people can become a couple.
Second one, we can have the bad people. They use us to do bad things. So, the important thing is that we must have more life experiences to recognise the good or bad people

Ok, I'm a quiet person, some introvert. I like things that make me happy, such as the design of things, such as architecture and graphic design. The arts like classic music, painting.
About social media, I find their use in the new knowledge, discoveries, and technical advances from my links.🤞

I think dating apps could be a choice to meet new people because it's not only for dating purposes but also to find a new friends. I never use the dating app but I heard the story from my friend that they meet new people with different backgrounds so it can wider their connection. And some of my friends also meet their other half on these apps. They get married and have kids and it is because they meet on dating apps.
