Reading text

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.

Everything also has 2 sides. And using dating app is not exempt. You won't spend a lot of time to see if your boy or girlfriend is suitable for you when using dating apps. Beside that, you can choose the most suitable person for you who has the personalities you loved. Nevertheless, each photos that you see in their profile don't make sure that their appearances in real life also look like in their profile. The best way to using these apps is checking carefully before having a date.

I think that dating apps can be good or bad depending on the person that you're dating, personnaly I met my girlfriend in a dating app and I like our relationship eventhough it's difficulte because of the distance between our countries.

I don't think daiting apps is a very good idea to meet people, because we should meet the person that we'll daiting personally and talk to him to know him\her well, but if we just talk with someone on the apps, he\she can easily lie to us and make a lie stories about their life..

Hi,
I'm just a normal girl and not very young at all. I am an optimistic person, however, I'm quite shy and sensitive. Therefore, I'm not very good at making conversations. I like pop and ballad music and I really love Western food, especially Pizza and Spaghetti. I'm really keen on photography even if my skill is not very good. I normally take photos of my friends and everything which I found beautiful around my life.
About dating apps, I do believe that dating app is really helpful for people making new friends. However, these apps still have some drawbacks. People can meet the wrong person or be defrauded because we can easily meet lots of people through these apps but hardly check their information. Moreover, personal details may be stolen if these apps have weak protection. So if people use these apps, they must be really careful with any information they post or receive from them.

Well, it depends, you should always be careful when meeting new people in apps because you don't really know that person and if they're really nice. But if you're careful and don't give out important information, that's OK.

Hi! have a nice day
for me, i do not think that dating apps are perfect choices because nowadays there are many applications created to meet the needs of society so the rate of bad people has also increased, we need to use the social media in a healthy way
