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.

sometimes, i think that with the dating apps we can make friend easier with others, especially introverts. But it also allows bad people to pose a danger to you. Everything seems to be like that, so, we need to be careful when using

I am not sure if dating apps are a good way to meet people because you are interacting with someone you don't know is a trustworthy person.

Are dating apps a good way to meet people? We can not simply assume it is good or bad, every coin has two sides. So we can think of this from two perspectives. From the good, it is easy, convenient to make new friends and keep in touch with old friends by regularly chat or video with them. From bad side, we even don't know the real information of a person who is chatting with you,so if you get ready to meet him(her),it is very dangerous, we have to distinguish who is good who is bad.

I think that dating app are very good way to meet and look for their lover or partner ,becuse of its fast,and easy use . at the end its like any apps that has advantages and disadvantages, and there are many ways to distinguish between the real information and not real information based on their own experience on the life .

I definitely agree with the idea that dating app is useful for some people who want to make a new friend but do not know how to do it. Firstly, using a dating app is the easiest way to have a new friend. To more specifically, all of things you need to do are open the app, navigate through and choose one or more people who you want to chat and give a request. If they like you, they will accept and both of you can chat with each other. Secondly, this app is useful for people who want to hide in social media. For example, If you chatted with someone and you talked something unwittingly, they couldn't find who you are and show others what you do. It safe for you. In conclusion, dating app is a productive way to make a new friend but you should use it smartly.

Yeah, i think dating apps have advantages as disadvantages, a bad factor woukd be the insecurity of meeting a stranger, it also has a lot to do with how old you are. The good things are that you can meet people outside your social circule.
