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.

For me, I never try to use the app. But I think might be good for someone. Who are want to meet with new people or new content to share or improve the language.

Our culture here isn't allow such these apps because some kinds of it a nudy scenes and almost all dating apps have some sexuality relationships, so we can't use these apps.

Are dating apps a good way to meet people? I think that the dating apps is good to find people with common interests, and maybe in the first meet you can decide if you want to deep in that friendship.

It is a good app but on the other hand it is bad. I've two best friends who use that app. One day they met their partners by using dating app and they decided to meet their boyfriends.When they dated, one of their boyfriends was not real. He lied his personal information on the profile. But the other man filled in actual inform and this couple have married last month.
