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 is good to use apps for meet new people, because it is very easy. I can send message, and then if I want I can have a real meet. It's nice.

I'm not sure whether it's a good way to meet people on dating apps or not. It's good opportunity to meet someone but we have to be careful with meeting in person. some are nice, some are not so nice. but actually my friend met her boyfriend on a dating app and they are still really in love. I guess if you are a good judge of character, it's good way to use them.

I don't think that dating apps a good way to meet people and make relationship. Most of accounts in dating app are fake so there is big risk of being cheated. Now a days i read a lot of news regarding this. Never blindly trust online friends and always try to get maximum information before making invisible person a friend.

About me I live in my dream all the time, because real life is boring nothing seems to be interested. I am bored of life, tired of being single. Only thing, that makes me alive is my job. I am an artist. I work at my home whole day. Likes and dislikes I like seeing sunrise in the morning. Feeling the morning sun is the most luxuries thing in the world for me.

Yesssss, Marte. I agree with Sergey Frolov. You seem a very interesting person, and maybe something in this world makes you disconnect from the beauty of real life. Try to investigate this. Yesss, the sunrise is a really beautiful and powerful force in nature, and It can cure us.
