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.

I think it's depends, because I've already met people nice and boring in the app. So, I generylly use this apps form start a conversation.

I think you can use the dating apps to meet friends in a general way. You can get in touch with different people. But you should pay attention in the security affairs.

No, i don't think that dating apps are good to meet people. There are many problems with meeting people on internet becasue they probably upload fake dates. Maybe they have bad intentions. Also, had a closed touching with somebody in your life its more true because you know him/her and could know their skills and defaults. Although if you know somebody who are for you, don't care whou you know him/her.

I think it is not the best way to use dating apps to help people meet someone because they do not know well the personality or the habits of the person that they meet and whether the photo profile of the person posted in social media is real or not . There is a possibility for the person to cheat them, for example, the person may want to borrow some money from them for solving his problem and promise to repay it later. In fact, the person only wants the money and he will disappear after getting it.

I think dating apps is not really good. when someone uses this apps and then meets someone that they don't know, they can get trouble because they don't know who they meet and how their personality is. There is a possibility that someone that they meet is a bad guy. This bad guy will find ways to take advantage from his target. For example, a single mother decided to find a date from dating app. Then she met a man who wanted to stay at her house. Not long afterwards, teh woman was found being stabbed in her room. That's really scary, isn't it ? So, in my opinion, it isn't a good idea to use dating apps to meet someone, especially, someone that will become our soulmate.

Dating applications are good if people used them at a useful way.

Dating apps is good if you use true mode. But when people, especially youngs use wrong through, they live a lot of problem. in fact they make crime.

I do not know!
