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.

Actually I didn't try dating from apps before, but, I think it is not a good way to meet unknown people.

No, i think offline is the best way to meet,but today’s generation prefer to go online to meet new people.

No, i think that the best way to meet with another person is face to face. Contact is very important for me. However, right now it is impossible caused by the coronavirus crisis. I dont like dating app.

I believe in ''everything has advantage and disadvantage'' so the dating apps could be good thing and bad thing, because from the apps you may mate the person who you want him. I think the best decision to made is not being a hasty.

I don't know much about dating applications and I don't think it isn't the correct way to meet new people.

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.

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.
