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 don’t trust dating apps, maybe because I am teenager? But I heard a lot of stories about how people found their true love with that way. The most important thing that you have to remember to meet in public place, have conversation before meeting and be collected with brain

In my opinion, dating app is a good channel for finding new friends that you don't have chance to meet them from your working and studying environment.

In my opinion dating Apps may be a good way to meet new people. It becomes more and more popular. Now it doesn't matter how you meet people in reality or in virtual world. The most important is to meet and talk, not sit alone in front of the computer and eat crisps.

i don't know i have never tried it before but i don't think it is a good idea

I don't like the dating app to meet people because I can't believe anyone seeing online.

I'm a Primary Assistant Teacher.l think dating apps is not ok for teenager.But, it will be so exciting for adults.

Hi, I'm student and in my opinion, the dating apps are for meeting new virtual friends and sometimes hanging out with them, but it's a very bad idea to use the dating apps to find a relationship.

So, I'm a brazilian guy and nowadays i live in BH, capital of Minas Gerais State...and in the big cities as this, apps dating became a good way to meet people. Trough to apps, people has been dating, sharing their experiences, have meeting in pubs, bars and events like shows and match days! But currently its impossible, because of pandemic!

Hello guys. I'm a serious man sometimes and a funny guy other times, I have a regular life. I work around 12 hours a week, you'll understand... It's the life of the engineer. The strange is that I try to learn English in "my free times". Before of the pandemic I liked go to the bech or play soccer whith my high -school friends, but right now I have to find other activities in home incluse for my family feeling good. I'm married and I have one child so is difficult stay home a lot of time in home for them too.

Ok, on weekend is the better I get up early and I go to buy seafood. In my country.... sorry my contry is Ecuador. In my country we have a typical plate the name is "encebollado" is really... really... delicius, truthfully my family love this plate. After the breakfast, I play with my child soccer, in the ps4 and if we have a warm day, we set up the pool. There, with my wife be drink beer or mojito sometimes.... ahhh music can't be missing. Usually on the weekend I cook something different I prefer meat or seafood to grill.

Finally in the night is the home party.. music, drinks and dance with my wife while the baby is sleeping.

PD: I dislike the injustice
