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.

Everything also has 2 sides. And using dating app is not exempt. You won't spend a lot of time to see if your boy or girlfriend is suitable for you when using dating apps. Beside that, you can choose the most suitable person for you who has the personalities you loved. Nevertheless, each photos that you see in their profile don't make sure that their appearances in real life also look like in their profile. The best way to using these apps is checking carefully before having a date.

I think that dating apps can be good or bad depending on the person that you're dating, personnaly I met my girlfriend in a dating app and I like our relationship eventhough it's difficulte because of the distance between our countries.

I don't think daiting apps is a very good idea to meet people, because we should meet the person that we'll daiting personally and talk to him to know him\her well, but if we just talk with someone on the apps, he\she can easily lie to us and make a lie stories about their life..

Hi,
I'm just a normal girl and not very young at all. I am an optimistic person, however, I'm quite shy and sensitive. Therefore, I'm not very good at making conversations. I like pop and ballad music and I really love Western food, especially Pizza and Spaghetti. I'm really keen on photography even if my skill is not very good. I normally take photos of my friends and everything which I found beautiful around my life.
About dating apps, I do believe that dating app is really helpful for people making new friends. However, these apps still have some drawbacks. People can meet the wrong person or be defrauded because we can easily meet lots of people through these apps but hardly check their information. Moreover, personal details may be stolen if these apps have weak protection. So if people use these apps, they must be really careful with any information they post or receive from them.

Well, it depends, you should always be careful when meeting new people in apps because you don't really know that person and if they're really nice. But if you're careful and don't give out important information, that's OK.

Hi! have a nice day
for me, i do not think that dating apps are perfect choices because nowadays there are many applications created to meet the needs of society so the rate of bad people has also increased, we need to use the social media in a healthy way

Hi !
I don't think that the dating apps are the best way to meet people.
I think face to face meetings are "more appropriated".
Effectivaly, there are attraction and feelings who are created when two persons meet them face to face while apps dating can be dangerous sometimes.
Now, I can understand that some people need that the kind of apps because they are reserved.
I'm not agree with these apps dating but I can believe that many people have found love on the net :)

Actually, I'm not sure because I've never used any dating app. But I think using dating app is not the best way to meet people. We can meet and connect with people by using dating app. However, you shouldn't trust all the people who you know online because you don't know their actual background and their true intentions. If it is used just for fun, it may not have any problem. As for me, I prefer to use Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. In these days, people can't go outside so much because of the pandemic , it is difficult to meet one another in person, so the social media apps are very useful for communication. I agree that they are really useful, we can easily meet and connect with friends , family and colleagues via using these staffs. But , to be safe, it is the best to be careful and don't share your private information too much when making new friends with strangers.

In my opinion, the dating apps aren't very good for meeting people. If you're getting bored of being alone and wanna flirt with someone, those apps might work at risk. I prefer walking around parks and downtown for making friend.

Hi everyone. I think that the dating apps are positive actually, as long as we use them correctly. Is not good give a lot information, and we have to go slow... We must try to get to know other people before we meet them.

Although the technology is developing in these days, I think the dating apps are not the best apps for us. If we use it only for fun, it would give you some happiness. But if you use it for real, you must take care of yourself in everything. Everything can't say useless. We should use these with lots of carefulness..

Hello, everyone. I confess that I don't like, and do not have the patience to use these apps, but especially nowadays where people can't go out to meet people at parties, pubs, university, etc... I think these apps are useful and positive. However, is necessary to be careful with persons on the internet. It's good to look for other profiles, verify the common friends, and communicate to persons of your confidence if you decide to meet this "unknown" person. Another important tip for these cases is to date a person that you only know on the internet in public spaces. To finish, just take care of yourself and enjoy the technological facilities.

Honestly idk cause i never use this apps but i think in this days a lot of people use this type of apps and i don't think is bad though always to be careful when you meet with other person and you don't know who it is and what is her/him intentios with you. For me is very difficult to meet people and have a date thanks for dating apps. I prefer to use instagram or twitter but i never have a date thanks to these apps because i'm very shy when i meet people

I'm not sure whether it's a good way to meet people on dating apps or not. It's good opportunity to meet someone but we have to be careful with meeting in person. some are nice, some are not so nice. but actually my friend met her boyfriend on a dating app and they are still really in love. I guess if you are a good judge of character, it's good way to use them.

I don't think that dating apps a good way to meet people and make relationship. Most of accounts in dating app are fake so there is big risk of being cheated. Now a days i read a lot of news regarding this. Never blindly trust online friends and always try to get maximum information before making invisible person a friend.

I met and got marriage my husband on Dating app. He is a good man and good husband, though. However, it depend on how we find a right person for us, if you are not careful, you may meet a fake person who are scam your money from many countries on app. Please do not send any money to strange people and you should keep contact with them by calling video, face to face. Then you will have time to know how and who they are.

Yes, for sure. But I`m still being an old-school person. So, I prefer to meet new people in an organic way. Like in the old times I think there is some magic that we lose When we use an application. But maybe someday I will be more open mind and try it.

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.

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! :)
