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.

I've never used dating app before , but I think it is helpful for many people, in despite of the fact that there are a lot of malicious people in this kind of app.

Personally speaking, I prefer meeting people like the old days since I find really interesting the fact of talking to anyone face to face instead of using a dating app. However, I would say dating apps are really helpful for someone who not only wants to get a love affair but also enjoys making new friends. Many of my friends use dating apps to meet girls so it seems it is a handy tool to meet people.

Are dating apps a good way to meet people? For me personally, dating apps are also a good way to meet and find out a person more. It's pretty useful for those who are very busy and do not have time to chase a particular girl.

It's very important for me have a good comunication with other person because if you have a good understanding you could be a good friend with whoever. In my point of view about dating apps is that there are a few people who can you trust and unfortunately dating apps are not a good way to meet people until now. This is my first day learning here. and I've learned new vocabulary as: talkative, canteen, usual, cames off, briefing and replecement. I hope that you have a good understanding, Have a nice day! :)

Nowadays many dating apps offer ways to find meetings partners. Most of them shows people’s picture, so if you’ve interested in someone you can invited that one to chatting, and then you can went out together. I think that this is a best way for shy people meeting your partners, but it isn’t only used by shy people, many outgoing people have used dating apps. But dating apps can be danger because many people have created fake profiles to trick. So is much important you be sure that person you are chatting is a real person before make an date.

I think the younger generation is grown up with any kind of technology. They are going to use it in a normal way. Maybe they meet friends they would never have met otherweise. So this is one possibility to make the world smaller.
